Among the Illawarra Cattle. AT THE KIAMA SHOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 February 1911
AT THE KIAMA SHOW. By FRANK McCAFFREY. '"Thou crownest the years with Thy .goodness, and Thy paths drop fat ness-the little hills rejoice on every side. The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn. They shout for joy; they also sing." When the. sweet singer of Israel lifted up his voice in melodious thanksgiving, and praise to the great Creator, the mountains, hills and val leys of Judah may have been in a condition similar to Illawarra at the present moment. At the same time, I am inclined to think that the sing er of Israel would have sung in a uni'erent key if he had been in charge of twenty or thirty head of cattle, wading through the Kiama show pens on Anniversary Day. We have, however, reason to sing and rejoice, for the year has been crowned with goodness. The Illa warra district is at present as a Garden of Eden. It is impossible for anyone to visit illawarra just now without being entranced by the .glori ous beauty of the "little hills....

NOTES. Three Jersey heifers have been purchased by Mr. J. Drysdale, of New Zealand, at (H) guineas each, from Mr. JI. ~D. O'Meara, of Bungalow, Richmond River, for the N.%. experi mental farm at Wairoa, (iO miles north of Wellington; also three Jer sey cows for 200 guineas, from Mr. J. J. Alcorn, also of the 'Richmond. Mr. Drysdale lias been visiting differ ent agricultural and dairying centres in Australia, with a view of inquiring into various farm and dairy ques tions. Two of the main reasons of his visit were to buy cattle for Wai roa, and to collect information as to the practicability of introducing into a cold climate the famous succulent paspalum that lias spelt so much for the advancement of the Richmond River district. The Berry Butter Factory, which has recently been acquired by a co operative company, composed chiefly of farmers, has an output of about 40 tons of butter per month, and about 140 suppliers.

TRAINING A FOAL [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 February 1911
TRAINING A FOAL Although the Arabs consider tho education of the colt should begin at eighteen months old, it begins in reality at an earlier age. No sooner is a foal born than it is made to swal low two or three eggs. A bystander then takes it up in his arms, and walks up and down in the midst of an almost inconceivable din, which is supposed to accustom it to terrlblo sounds, so that ever after it will bo imperviourj to fright, no matter how terrifying the noises that assail its ears. To teach it to suck, a fig or date soaked in milk slightly salted, is put into its mouth, and when pos sible it is given camel's or cow's or ewe's millc, which is supposed to make the coat more soft and sleek. At eighteen months old the colt is mounted by a child, who takes it to water and to pasture, guiding it with a soft mule's bit, but it is not saddled until it is quite accustomed to tho bridle. Careful owners before allow ing a colt to be mounted by a grown man, have it led up and down for a fo...

KILLING THISTLES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 3 February 1911
KILLING THISTLES. The increasing trouble with thistles and other pesta in out cul tivation country makes it worth while drawing attention to an American method of dealing with the same trouble. The Wisconsin Ex periment Station advises that for large areas, cultivation or fallowing without a crop can be used success fully, except on soils which remain too wet. or are so porous that the horizontal roots are too deep to reach with the plough. In many cases the method works well in the latter case. It consists of plough ing deep enoug.i to reach the hori zontal roots four times in a dry season, and oftener if the season is wet. Ploughing may be profit ably begun as soon as a crop is off the ground, that is about now from a local standpoint, especially as the ground should be easy to handle in most parts after the rain. The turned-up paddock wants to be cul tivated regularly to keep down any leaf growth with a spring-tooth har row for choice. It is better than the disc harrow, which has...
