A BULLA FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Omeo Standard and Mining Gazette — 23 June 1914
A BULLA FARM. liy J. S. MeFatlzcan (Senior Dairy Supervisor), in "Journal of Agriculture." The growing of lucerne ia usually considered as concomitant with natur ally rich soil; so much so tlmt, in the absence ol' suitable alluvial land, most people will not attempt to grow this fodder. THo fact, however, is that biroi-iio will crow on almost- any land except, soil, as is badly drained; and, onco established, it will live- through vory dry periods; but. il' repeated cut tings nro expected from il during tho wanner months, a regular supply of water is then necessary in its cultiva tion; wilh this provision, it is in the warmer and drier districts that it nour ishes most luxuriantly. That compara tively poor land is capable of being made to grow prolilie crops of lucerne has, in the Bulla district, been demon strated in a very thorough manner by Mr. (!. 1). Dickinsou, of Moonee Ponds. His farm, "Sherwood," is a ;i-0-acre block situated on the north side of the Green Yale vond, about I...
