TIME TO CUT GREEN MAIZE. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 28 January 1915
TIME TO CUT GREEN MAIZE. This is a question thnt often crops up—when to cut maize for greatest feeding value. l'rof. .1. H. Sheppard, Dean of Agri culture, Xorth Dakota Agricultural College, says that the amount of dry matter in a maize iielil increases at al most a regular rate from the time of tasseling until fully ripe. In round numbers it is as follows:—When in silk it lias twice .-is much dry inattcf as when in tasse!. when in milk three times, when glazed four times, and when ripe live times as much us when in tassel. The digestihlo matter also increases as the maize matures, so that the increase in dry matter is even less than the increase in digestible matte?" per acre. With these facts in tniud one cannot be left in doubt as to the importance of allowing maizo to come as near ripe as possible before it is cut for fodder. It should not be left, however, after it is ripe for the leaves to be broken off bv the wind and the digostiblo matter bleached out by rain and dews. The c...

ATROCITY STORIES NOT EXAGGERATED. Mrs. Henry C'Jews, the wife of the well-known American hanker, returned lately to New York. She told the ship-news reporters that the stories of German atrocities in Belgium had not been exa^gcrarod. ami she herself had personally investigated a number, with the result that she found that half had not been told. It was a war, she said, ruthless beyond description, and the German?, far from trying to conceal their malpractices, opeulv defended them on the giound that the life of a Vrnssiun soldier in the present crisis was worth more than that of any civilian, t:o matter what age or sex. Mrs. Clews said there is a chance of people misunderstanding the alleged friendliness to Americans shown by the Germans:. She said that she and others were openly insulted in the I streets of Munich mauv a time. ''It is j not because the Germans love us so ! that they foregather at the railway stations and ctv 'Koch!

FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Ballan Times — 28 January 1915
FEEDING COWS ACCORDING TO THEIR YIELD. The recently introduced system of feeding dairy cows on a graduated 6cale according to the niensure or then milk-yielding capabilities, ongmojl> devised in Denmark, has been recon ing increasing attontion 011 the of progressive dairy farmers in tms country. This method, which marks tho 1fttest development iu tho practice of cow feeding, has much to iccoin mend it, for it is rational in pirnoiple, while easily carried out in practice. Its special merit consists in the fact that it promotes economy in feeding; Uv bringing the cost of the food ration into proper proportion with the return obtained. It is based upon the i>vin c'.p!o that tho extent to winch dany cows are able to respond to a nulK forcing diet by giving an euhanoeu yield, is dependent upon the degree ot development attained by then* ni''k" producing powers; that is to say, tne more fully a cow's inherent nulkuig capacity is developed. tho more call her milk secretion bo develo...

BELGIUM'S WAR DOGS. VALUE OF THElli WORK. Convincing testimony to the useful ness of the Jog has been supplied by the campaign in Belgium, our brave Allies, employing large numbers for pulling machine guns anil accompany ing seutries on nocturnal duties. Curi ously enough, this form of traction has only been adopted within the last year or tiro, and only fifteen mouths a go a Belgian Service paper wrote approv ingly of the experiment, pointing out that, in addition to being docile and competent, the animals had become great favourites among the soldiers. •Among tlieir advantages it was men tioned that they move sileutly, with out apparent effort, over the roughest country, and that they arc practically invisibje a few hundred yards away.

The now bye law is welcomed by London motorists, for sincc the reduction of brilliant lighting in the English capi tal, Hie difficulties of motoring have been considerably increased. An English motorist snggests that it -would be a good thing for motoring generally if an annual long-distance reliability contest could be organised in England, in which car designers should take the driver's point of view. Some of the leading English firms -who do a big business in Aus tralasia could even go further, and arrange for their engineering repre sentatives to take part in, say the Sydney-Melbourne test.
