DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
DAIRYING. CULLING OUT POOR COWS. An English dairying authority says: The elimination of the worthless ani mals should be one of the chief ob jects of the cow keeper. Milk records kept carefully and sv tematically furnish reliable informa tion which enables a cow keeper to de tect these worthless animals; and it pays him to dispose of them at once. There are some farmers, of course, who may The tempted to rely wholly on their own judgment-as far as the milking capacities of any cow is con cerned; but guess-work of this kind can teach nothing what it costs to feed cows, nor whether such food is being economically fed in rielation to the -average quantity of milk produced. . Milk producers need to study this question of cost of-food in relation to milk yield very carefullv indeed. The fact is clear that a cow giving, say, SO0 gallons per annum costs practic ally no more to feed than one which only gives 600 gallons; yet, compara tively speaking, there is -a loss of £6 on the latter, if...
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
GENERAL CARE AND FEEDING. No branch of dairy farming is more important than the feeding and treat menit of cows; yet none is more gen erally neglected. The direct influence of what the coin eats and drinks upon the niilk she produces cannot be too shtongly. impressed upon the attention of the farmer. Of equal importance are the conditions under which food and drink are taken. If cows are chased by dogs or over-driven, or wor ried by boys on their way to pasture, their milk will surely show' the effects in a deterioration of quality. If their shelter in winter or shade in summer is insufficient, or the food is not suf ficiently nutritive, the penalty will in variably be paid in a smaller milk yield. These restrictions are inevi table. One of the greatest mistakes far mers make is in supposing that they may with impunity keep their cows on "short commons" during the win ter and that they will fatten up in the spring, and milk as well as ever. A cow -reduced to meagreness by semi starv...
SCOURING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
SCOURING CALVES. From experiments carried out in Germany it is claimed to have been discovered that sour milltk given to calves from the first to the fifth day of their lives, forms an excellent pre ventive of scour. The constant losses -sometimes of valuable pedigree ealhves-are well known in most herds, and are attributed to the curdling of thie milkli in the stomach. The bacteria in sour milk are supposed to act bene ficially. In Germany it is called yog hurt, produced by adding Bacillus bul garicus to milk. This generates lac tic acid in the stomach of the calves, which acts as a disinfectant, and pre vents the development of the hurt ful bacteria, and at the same time sti mulates the activity of the intestine, -probably by producing a ferment that destroys the bacilli which give rise to scour.

VETCHES OR TARES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
VETCHES OR TARES. Vetches or tares are of two distinct kinds-those sown in the autumn for spring or early summer use, and those sown in the spring which come in. after the winter sowing is used :up. There are few crops which yield such a large amount of succulent green food, though perhaps for special pur poses other crops are preferable, buti for general use and under all condi tions tares cannot be beaten. The amount of seed required per acre is about three bushels of tares and one bushel of oats or Iye, the latter being sown to keep the tares off the ground solimewhat and so prevent rotting in wet weather. In order to gain the full benefits from growing tills green crop thle sow ings shIould be made at differelt interl vals, beginning as early as possible, when the land can be prepared, so that successive cuttings are obtained without allowing them to become ripe. Tares are more suitable for soiling purposes than grazing,as this latter plan is very wasteful, much of the food bein...
THE BUSY BEE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
THE BUSY BEE. 'sinter is close upon us. In the coolest of our districts bees have al ready retired, and before the month is out the retirement will be general. During the warmer portions of the dlays, especially if the sun -is bright, the bees will still venture out, but they will not wander far from home ii last month's advice has been at tended to, i.e., if they are supplied with sufficient honey to carry them on till spring, or the coming breeding season. If bees are forced to go for aging on bright winter days, the sud den atmospheric changes prevent the return of many, and a good supply of food in the hive is the only remedy: It also forms one of the best methods to keep up the warmth of the hive. On every occasion when the weather is bright and drying, remove the wraps, etc., from the hives, and spread them out to dry. External dampness produces internal dampness, which is one of the most prolific causes of di sease. Just before sundown return the protections to the hives. The...
How the Horse Won. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
How the Horse Won. A few days after the new farmer had piurcha.ed a horse from a thrifty Scot he returned in an angry mood. "You told me this horse had won half-a-dozen matches against some of the best horses in the country. He can't trot a mile in six minutes to save himself. You lied to me!" he de nounced. "I didna lie. It wits in ploughiug matches hlie took sax prizes, calmly replied Sandy.
WINTER CARE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
WINTER CARE. The season is at hand that is the hardest on our ever faithful friend the horse.. The raw, damp, windy or extreme cold weather, together with a little neglect, may cause the loss of a valu able horse. When a horse comes in wet from work or drive, rub him well and cover with a warm woollen blanket. Always change to a dry blanket when the horse has cooled. Rub the legs well with a wisp of straw or a towel. Every horse is more or less warm when he comes in from a drive. Never strip off the harness or saddle and let the horse rush into a feed of oats or a trough of water. Never give water or oats to a horse until he has been in the stable some time, and has had some hay. This is a sane and safe practice and much loss can be avoided by en forcing it. Change the bit of the horse with thle sensitive mouth. Take off the check, or let it out. Try a large rub ber-covered bit. If the horse "drives on one line," look to his teeth at once; a sharp tooth is usually the cause.

A cordial invitation is extended to any reputable person who will act on the lines indicated " Concerning some parts of the dis trict, news comes but seldom. This is not entirely our fault; we have no miraculous power of knowing what is happening at all the places within our area of circulation. It is the fault of residents in silent places.

Seventh Day Adventism. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang New Times — 1 May 1914
Seventh Day Adventism. (By Rev. Joseph Nicholson.) In considering the teaching of Seventh Day Adventism, one of the first questions we have to settle is, what is meant by the- term "the law?" We hold that " the law" embraces the whole Mosaic law-moral, civil and ceremonial. Our Seventh Day .friends claim there -are two laws-the moral and the cere monial. But the Scriptures make no such distinction. The only proof they can offer is a very artificial and fanci ful one. It is claimed the Tenll Com mandments are the whole law, and they were placed in the ark, whereas the "hook of the law"-which they affiin is "ceremonial"-was placed in the side of tha arkt! Our answer is that the term, "the law," which occurs 400 times, is never once applied ex ciusively to the Ten Commandments, and so tar from the "book of the law" in the side of the ai'k being ceremonial it is largely "mora'," seeing it con tains the Ten Commandments twice over. - "The law was given by MIoses," and. it was given to th...
