POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

POULTRY. But few sections of the Sydney show were so complete as poultry. But this has been the case for many years. The most excellent facilities for development which the R.A.S. provides are of themselves induce ments to breeders to come forward. Although the white leghorn is at present the most generally popular breed in the State, they were not pro portionately represented in the show pens. At the same time they were in much larger force than any other kind of Mediterranean breeds. Good judges detected drop in quality, al though something must be allowed for the tendency to breed away from the traditional type which is most in fashion by standard English fan ciers. Viewed with the single eye to utility points, perhaps the more rep resentative birds in the show pens were calculated to inspire hope in the future position of the breed rather than the reverse. Considerable falling off was alsa noticeable in the £ s. a. quality of the Wyandottes, though a thorough ly sound breed, whi...

Notes of the Week The Manufacturers' Week Out. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

The Manufac turers' Week Out. ?'i The display made by local manu facturers this week is a signal lllus tration of our pro gress. Taken in conjunction with the Easter Show it witnesses to the fact that Aus tralia is making its way along the soundest lines We are on the way to industrial independence. Certainly, forever, we must continue to send the greater part of our greatest pro duct, our wool, to be wrought into fabrics by the workers of other lands, but every year Ave will make a greater proportion of it into the finished product with our own labour and machinery. So with the leather we produce. In the end, we will probably shoe and clothe the whole people of the Commonwealth, except ing that fastidious few who, in every community, continue to prefer some brand of foreign article to the home made one. Our deposits of coal and iron point the way to an industrial eminence in the manufacture of ma chinery. In this direction our pro gress has been notable, indeed. This country wants ...

AGRICULTURE. A Display of Quality. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

AGRICULTURE. A Display of Quality. The Agricultural Hall was not so crowded as last year, and it conse quently gave the public a better op portunity. 01 criticising the exhibits. But what it lacked in quantity, it more than made up in quality, al though in wheat and maize the en tries this sear were more numerous. The Western Districts and South ?Coast and Tablelands were the only two entries in the Commonwealth District Competion, which surprised most people, seeing that the season has been a splendid one, almost over the whole of the State, and that the prize money is not less than £400, and £500 if five or more compete. The Western District trophy was made up of portions of the Bogan and Macquarie divisions, and South Coast and Tableland of portions of the Argyle, Monaro, Isepean, and South Coast divisions. The first had ?exhibits ' from Mudgee, Bathurst, Dubbo, Blayney, Millthorpe, Forbes, and Oberon. The judges had much to say in praise of the all-round qua lity of the individu...

THE LAND. u Nations may battle and the world rock with revolution but the land will care for him who cares for it." Telephone 1521 City. Telegrams, "The Land," Sydney . Offices 3 Spring Street, Sydney. FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 1911. The Enemy Within the Gates. During the week there has been held in Sydney a meeting of dair)'- representatives-mostly factory men--to decide upon further steps in connection with the Dairymen's Union, which had its genesisWASI Mr. Mark Morton at Kiama a little time ago, and which since has been assiduously engineered from Sus sex Street. At that meeting representatives of the Farmers' and Settlers' Association attended, but as obviously the business had been readied-up beforehand they were denied a hearing. Considering that the Farmers and Settlers' Association has some eighty branches in dairy districts and numbers some of its best workers among dairy farmers, this action on the part of the engineers of the meeting was, to say the least, imperti nent. It is .t...

Record in Shows-Magnificent Attendances. SOME STRAY POINTS* / : ? &» ? - :... ; Five days of perfect weather at a stretch for ;tlie ' Sydney Royal this year--and, of course, a record in at tendance and takings. Sunday the spell of radiance was broken, and Monday, which promised to be the biggest day of the lot, was beastly wet. Result, a big drop in the attendance, which pulled down the average. Nevertheless, Friday made up for a lot. Exhibitors, atten dants, officials, public, all taken to gether, there were probably quite 90,000 people on the ground-a mov ing black mass, reminiscent of a hotel table outback when the flies come in to dinner! .Just think, 83,000 people at the Showground on Friday, and all of them pretty well tired out by their day's sightseeing, and desirous to get back when all was over soon after 5 p.m. Imagine this endless flow of humanity seeting forth to and from the gates of the ground, and over flowing like some mighty river in flood across the roads,...

SHEEP. A Mediocre Display. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

SHEEP. A Mediocre Display. When tlie K.A.S. decided to add a sheep section to their schedule, they must haA'e been aware that the date the show is held on was inimical to a good display of sheep of all breeds, as owing to the shearing in this State, not starting much before Au gust there Avas little chance of ob taining entries from the leading me rino breeders. However, it was thought possible to get the breeders of tne mutton types-the British breeds, to send in a sufficient number to make the sheep-shed worthy of the efforts made. The response has not yet been as liberal as expected, but if the society can see its way to amend the schedule in the way of increased prizes, a better support should follow. Instead of a ribbon, a medal should be given to the cham pions. The insertion of the Hamp shire Downs in the breeds has occa sioned some surprise, as the Dorset Horn has been found a more profit able farmers' sheep, on account of its earlier maturity, whilst for crossing purposes, ...

WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

WHEAT. Naturally, the holiday feeling has been apparent in the wheat market,, the trade since our previous report simply marking time. The increased official estimates of the harvest pub lished a few days back (which we report fully elsewhere in our col umns), has tended to make buyers somewhat bearish in their ideas, while the general lifelessness of the home markets has not stimulated the demand for export here. Ship pers have mostly been standing right off; while their limits are gene rally in the region of 3/3 per bushel. Holders, however, have turned down such offers without the slightest hesitation, and have been demanding 3/5% to'3/6 per bushel, according to size of parcel, and date of delivery. In view of the wide disparity be tween buyers and sellers, and the consequent dearth of sales, it is al most impossible to quote a definite market. Millers, too, have been very meagre operators, and even their prices have fallen considerably be low what holders demand. But there is on...

AGENTS' REPORTS. Dalgety and Company, Limited, re: port:-Tlie Easter holidays have in terfered with business in wool since our last report, and there is very litte fresh to advise with regard to the market, which is quiet, pending resumption of auction business at Brisbane, on May 2, when import ant catalogues will be offered, in cluding one of 15-16,000 bales to be submitted by this company. Fur ther wet weather has been experi enced in Queensland, which has again delayed shearing operations in the Central district, so that wool has not been arriving in Brisbane as free ly as would otherwise have been the case, but this will not prevent at tractive and representative cata legues being brought forward on the above date.

The Market Mirror WOOL. Very Little Business Doing. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

The Market Mirror WOOL. Very Little Business Doing. The wool trade, in common with other branches of industry has been holiday-making, so that the past Aveek lias been very much of a blank as regards this market. However, despite the very limited amount of business going on, there is an un dercurrent of strength noticeable, values for practically all descrip tions of wool being more than main tained. Practically all the passed-in lots from the recent auction sales have found buyers, while the prices realised have generally been distinct ly higher than the offers bid during the sales. The lots available from fellmongering works, or any other source, have likewise been eagerly competed for, but there has been, and continues to be, but very little wool available at the present time. Agents report that consignments from the Northern State, and from the North-West districts of New South Wales continue to arrive in fair quantities, so that they antici pate the catalogues at the second of ...

CENTRAL QUEENSLAND SUBDIVISION. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

CENTRAL QUEENSLAND SUBDIVISION. The "Fairview" Estate, the auction sale of which is advertised in our column, is another instance of the spirit of the times. Over forty years ago, Mr. J. H. Farmer leftr Sydney for Central Queensland, which was then practically an unknown land. Like many other pioneers, he believed in going out where the land was good and plenty. As a result of liis visit he selected the property now known as "Fairview," situated on the Cal liope River, and being one of the first selectors, it is reasonable to assume that he selected only the very best. As a fattening property, "Fairview" has proved itself from time to time, and the hands at the Gladstone Meat Works, still speak of the famous mob of Shorthorn cows from "Fairview," which averaged over 800 lbs. About five years ago Mr. Farmer decided to put "Fail-view" to the test as a dairy ing property, and immediately sent to the South Coast of New South Wales for a number of picked dairy ing heifers, besides obtain...

Veterinary Some Bilious Opinions on Show Stock by "The Land's" Vet. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

First, it seems some what curious that a country possess . ing so many good thoroughbred horses cannot at the chief stock ex hibition of the year make a better show m that class.

It is divided into fifteen sections, headed as follows:-Farm Lands of New South Wales; The Chemistry of the Soil; The Cultivation of the Soil; The Farm Holding; Agricultural Im plements; Cereal Root Crops; Legu minous Crops; Miscellaneous Crops; Saltbushes and Edible Native Trees; Silos and Silage; Fodders and Feed stull's; The Farmers' Weeds; Live Stoeic; and Farmers' Calendar.

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Hydatids in Sheep. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 21 April 1911

ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. Hydatids in Sheep. E. C. Moringdale writes asking if there is any cure for hydatids in sheep. The hydatid cyst generally forms under the throat, and a sheep will linger for some time., but gene rally death ensues. The complaint is more pronounced in wet ewes. I have had a few ewes affected, with fatal results, and in every case a wet ewe with a sucker at foot. Hydatid cysts are nearly always confined to the liver or lungs, and very rarely attack other parts of the body. They develop very slowly, and for this reason are not likely to cause much mortality unless they at tack the brain or heart. It seems al most incredible that cysts can be the cause of death. It seems far more likely that there is a dropsical swell ing under the throat, due to worms in the stomach, and that wet ewes are more susceptible owing to the increased drain on their constitutions. If more ewes die, carefully examine the stomach for worms, and also make sure if the cysts are present i...
