THE HAND SEPARATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 23 January 1914
THE HAND SEPARATOR. The value of a hand separator &lt;V pnnds very largely upon the person who runs it ami cares for the cream. There Is no qii'stion but what the separaW lias its advantages, but in the hands . i a careless person it very soon becomes a detriment. Most of the st\\da«l machines are made to run easily, j»nrl almost as smoothly as a sewing ma chine, but how many after bi*!ng iistU a while turn like a feed chopper, and, for noi.se, a thrashing machino is not in it. Ti.c &lt;voi.bio is generally ori^-> ablrt lr wwlean conditions of tho soar ing and lack of oil. Not that oil is not used, but the oil holes and chan nels hcoomo clogged up and tho oil cannot reach tho gearing. One of llio lir.st tilings a farmer should do after buying jv separator is to get per fectly familiar with overy part of the coaring. This is as important to un derstand as the bow]. Milk very often gets into tho gearing, and this always causes trouble till removed. Watch this, and k...

MPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 23 January 1914
MPORTANCE OF REGULARITY IN MILKING. In ovorything (regularity is good piaotice, but in good dairying it is im perative. To produce largo and rich yield* of milk is tho solo function of tiio dairy cow, and to do this alio must bo of good dairy type, fed palatable and nutritious teeds and milked clean at regular periods. As© a rulo, tho cow is milked at 6 o'clock of mornings in summer and 7 or 6 o'clock in moromgs in tho win ter. The very unequal periods are made for tho cow by this sun to sun milk ing, and as a consequence, tho quality ot licr milk How and tho length of lier annual period are reduced. The oow can do her best only when milked at equal and regular periods of about 12 hours each tho year round. The full supply of milk is not in the udder ready to b&lt;j drawn out before milking time comes, but two thirds ot | it is produced in the, glands during , tho operation of milking.

ELECTRIC STERILISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 23 January 1914
ELECTRIC STERILISATION. Tho iroportanco nowadays Attached - ftftor ago-long negloct-to securing milk In a condition as nearly as pus siblo frco from discoso germs of every kind gives special interest to a mod* of olectrio sterilisation invented by u Liverpool doctor. Uithorto tho niodj pursued to proservo milk in full fresh ness of condition for tho considerable length of time ncccssary for its distri bution and consumption has boon to heat tho liquid to a tcmpcraturo whioh kills tho microbes, and then to prevent tho access of further microbe* by so curing it in air-tight bottles, after which tho freshness seems to h»i pre served indefinitely. An objection to tho method is that tho hcatjig of the milk is in effect a cooking pr>coss, which so far changes tho nature of the constituents as to render them loss readily nutritious. Dr. ,1. M. Rcnt tio, of Liverpool, however, .sterilises tho milk by olectrio current, and thus avoids heating it at all.
