POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914

POTATOES AS A FOOD FOR PIGS. 1 do not believe that iho potato is. suflicioutly reoogiiiaed an ono of tho most valuable of foods for tho pig. Tho avoiago individual probably supposes that while it is an agreeable addition to the diuner-tablo, it is quite out of the question that it is sutliciontiy nu tritivo to maintain life. But this is not so; tho potato, cooked in its jackot and butterod, is amply sulliciont. to maintain man in healthy and muscular condition, tho iat being added partly as a relish and partly to reduce the quantity consumed. 1 have roliablo reoords of facts in proof of this re mark. When fed to pigs tho potato sliould form part ol a mixed diet, which will maintain the appetite bot tui-, and therefore assist, in making the j animal fat enough for salo at an ear lier date. It is, however, the econo mical character of the tuber which on ables it to obtain so high a position us a stock food. No form of grain will produce so much feeding matter to the acre.

PASTURING LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914

PASTURING LUCERNE. " That lucerno is not a pasture plant has long been recognised by our good farmers, and it is only as a rule in different landlords and rapacious tan ants that take chances on grazing it. Its intimate relation to the mower and the. rake is coming to be appreciated and either as hay or a soiling crop it finds its highest efficiency. This, how ever, need not imply that lucerne can not be successfully grazed. It's rather a question as to how this is done, and if certain precautions are followed grazing is not injurious. A primary rule should ho not to lot stock on lu cerno when there is no growth to feed on. A lucerne field should not ho a loafing place for stck. Tramping is injurious- to the crown and to the soil, as is also the eating of the tender shoots jiist as they start from tho crown. These shoots appeal to the taste of stock, and in eating them, growth is- not only stopped, but tho older stalks and leaves are refused. Secondly, keep stock out of lucerne whil...

FEED THE HEAVY MILKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 15 October 1914

FEED THE HEAVY MILKERS. • Did you ever have a cow go to "pieces"? if you nave been handling scrub, low-producing stock probably you hav© not had tho experience, but those of us who have mixed with that class of cows in which the milk-giving trait has been, as we may say, ab normally developed know what it means. Here is one of the best cows in tue herd, a purebred or possibly a grade Holstein, Jersey, or Guernsey. She comes in lresh and starts in with a milk flow that tickles your pocket book. Maybe you think of her needs in the way of feed and maybe you don't. At any rate she goes on with the same rations as tho rest of the herd. They are getting good pasture or good hay and possibly some concen trates-on tho side and you say to your self that ought to do and if it is good enougu for tho heavy producers you don't expect them to keep up tho gait aud that they will como down to more moderate yield with 110 harm to themselves.

If the skim milk is ..from the separator, it can be fed fresh, and the calf can be fed completely upon this ration within fif teen days of birth. If the cream is. 'raised by setting aside, it cannot ; be so fresh, and.more time should be given hi getting the calf on' to this Va-tion. .
