The Application of Water. SOME PRINCIPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

The Application Water. SOME PRINCIPLES. The utilisation^of water so that it will giv^e the best results is a problem which to a great extent every irrigationist must work out for himself. So much depends on the physical properties of the soil on any particular farm, the grade of the land, weather conditions, the mind of the indi vidual irrigator, etc., that no hard-and fast rules can be laid down for individual cases. There are, however, a number of general principles which apply to irriga tion wherever and however practised, ana although these have been referred to pre viously in the columns of the "Record," it is perhaps as well to bring them to gether again so that they will be in every settler's mind during the present irriga tion season. Downward and Lateral Spreading.-An inquiry has just been made by one Yanco Settler on a light open soil as to how he . is to prevent the loss of water which occurs owing to downward percolation. The problem is one which other settlers may have ...

MIRROOL. The Cheese Factory Manager. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

MIRROOL. The Cheese Factory Manager; As reported last issue, a certain amount of difficulty was met with in arranging for the appointment of a manager for the Mirrool Cheese Factory. The trouble has, however, now been overcome, since the Commission has secured the services a? cheesemaker of Mr. C. F. Bailer, late of Warragaburra factory, Bega. Mr. Bailer holds good credentials, and has had a large experience of cheesemaking. He held the position just vacated since 1913, and at the last Bega Show his cheese won first prize in more than one class. It is hoped that the Mirrool factory under his management will be equally as successful as the Warragaburra factory. By the time these notes appear, Mr.Bai ler will have arrived at Mirrool with a view to taking up duty.

Grass Experiment Plots. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

Grass Experiment Plots. The grass plots put down last year have had anything but a fair chance, ow ing to the protracted drought and the shortage of water from which the- whole Area 'suffered last season. The position, as reported by Mr. Inspector Colwell, after a recent visit was as follows: Tall Fescue.-Sown 26/4/15. Rate, 22 lb per acre. Germination good. Growth to date poor. The warmer weather will ptobably result in a more vigorous growth. Apparently this grass will germ inate under most trying conditions. Phalaris Bulbosa.-Sown 26/4/15. Rate 81b. per acre. Germination good. Growth slow, chiefly due to being sown on poor clay soil. This is a variety that can be recommended. Bromus Ine.mis.-Sown 26/4/15. Rate, 321b. per acre. Germination poor. To date this grass has not proved itself jf value. Cocksfoot.-Sown 27/4/15. Rate 401b. per acre. Germination fair. Growth poor. As this grass thrives most prolifically in cold, wet climates, we cannot expect too much from it on The Areas. ...

Vegetable Growing. CALENDAR FOR DECEMBER. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

"Vegetable Growing. CALENDAR FOR DECEMBER. By H. Hogbin. - Tomatoes.-Tomatoes can still be planted, and for a late crop sowings should be made as soon as possible. From a ^mid-December sowing last season ex cellent results were obtained here, the fruits being of good quality and size. When planting at this time of the year some difficulty will be found in getting the plants to start into fresh growth after planting out. I find a good method to plant as previously advised, and cover each plant with a small sheet of paper (15in. x 6in. is a good size). It naturally entails more work, but will amply repay anyone for the trouble as the percentage of loss is very small. The paper should only be kept on for two or three days. Celery.-White Plume, White Paschall, and Solid White are good varieties of this excellent vegetable. Sowings should be made this month on a well prepared seed bed, covering until germination takes place-a hessian covered frame will be found the best for this purpose....

What to Grow. PEACHES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

What to Grow. PEACHES. In recent issues of the "Record", there have appeared a, number of articles based on information received from Mr. J. M. Arthur, of the Yanco Experiment Farm, as to the varieties of certain classes of iruit which it would appear advisable for settlers to grow in the light of the results obtained at the Experiment Farm. Pos sibly, one of the most important varieties cf fruit which will be grown on the Irri gation Areas, for many years to come at any rate, is the peach, since it comes into full profit at an early age, and peaches as a class do remarkably well on these irri- ^ gated lands. One only needs to take .a trip over the Areas in any direction to soon become convinced of that. For this reason, particular interest attaches to the notes which follow, giving Mr. Arthur's impressions as to the varieties of peachfs which it would be advisable for settlers to go in for, having regard to farm results. In notes published this issue, and those which follow, a ripe...

Instructional Notes Fodder Crops for Dairymen. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

Instructional Notes BY H. R. ALEXANDER. Fodder Crops for Dairymen. At the present time dairying prospects in the Areas remain good. Butter fat prices are high, and likely to be high throughout the whole of this season. The natural grasses and herbage on the dry areas have now ripened, but are yet most valuable and fattening fodders. What the cows really want now to sup plement the dry area fodders is a good feeding once a day on some green succu lent crop. Late sown oats is about the only fodder at the present time that can be considered succulent. Early sown maize crops will within the next six weeks be available for the use of cows, to be followed immediately thereafter by the millet paddocks, which have been sown out fairly extensively during the past month. Millets, inore particularly Japanese, have proved themselves of inestimable value in supplying a continuous and suc culent fodder for milch cows throughout the hot summer months, and ^ paddock of millet should be on every dai...

VARIETIES OF FREESTONES NOT RECOMMENDED. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

VARIETIES OF FREESTONES NOT RECOMMENDED. The following varieties of freestones are rot recommended, as some of them clas*» with other varieties already recommend ed and generally they are not considered by Mr. Arthur to be so good. Almost with out exception, however, they have done very well indeed, and it should be borne in mind that their failure to give results is not the reason they are excluded from the list published above. Triumph.-Ripening date about Janu ary 1. It is a highly colored, good des sert peach, and fair carrier. It is one of the first yellow flesh peaches to come in. King Edward VII.-Ripening date, De cember 25; flesh inclined to be white, with a heavy pink tint at the pit. This variety is inclined to overbear, and must be thinned out. It is a very strong growing tree, but as it becomes older, the fruit has a tendency to become smaller. It is a poor carrier, and the flavor is not good. It cannot be recom mended for either drying or canning; in fact, it may be con...

POULTRY NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

POULTRY NOTES. By H. J. Braund. Greien Feed.-To keep the young chicics growing properly requires an ampel sup ply of fresh succulent greenstuff of good quality. Now that the natural tender grass has dried off it is necessary to keep up a full supply by artificial means. Have you sown a bed of silver beet, lettuce, endive? Perhaps you have a lucerne patch, and if so it is difficult to better it for poultry green feed, especially the young tender lucerne. Maize sown broadcast and very thickly on rich man ured ground makes a fine succulent growth when given plenty of water. Of course, the maize wants chaffing up. There are several good poultry green-food cutters on the market. The one I am using at present is Wilson's Gem Cutter. They cost 65/. Hawks.-Several settlers have com plained of losing chickens by the depre dations of ihawks. A method I have found satisfactory in dealing with hawks is to erect a pole about 10ft. high near the chicken pens, nail a board about 12in. 4in. x l'in....

THE BACON FACTORY AND OUTSIDE BUYERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

THE BACON FACTORY AND OUTSIDE BUYERS. By H. R. Alexander. On the 1st of this month the Yanco bacon factory was open to receive pigs. It was not contemplated that the factory would be ready to kill pigs on that date, the intention being to hold the animals for a few weeks till freezing plant and other machinery had been given a good trial run, and general slaughtering opera tions were being inaugurated at the fac tory. So far a few pigs have been se cured from settlers, but the number is altogether inadequate to warrant a com mencement being made with the bacon curing operations. The present dearth of pigs is due to the fact that Victorian buyers have been very persistent and successful in their efforts to secure pigs on the Areas for trucking to the southern State. In Victoria bacon prices run in the vicinity of 1/6 per lb. In New South Wales bacon is fixed by law at 1/ per lb. The result is obvious-a man who kills pigs and cures bacon in N.S.W. cannot be expected to pay the same pr...

Cannery Comments. WHY "CANNED" VEGETABLES SHOULD BE PREFERABLE TO "FRESH." [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

Cannery Comments. WHY "CANNED" VEGETABLES SHOULD BE PREFERABLE TO "FRESH." By J. H. Harrison. I }' [The successful canning of vegetables must be done where the vegetables are gfr'own, and the natural juices can be re tained. | Canned vegetables are vastly superior to the dried article, as in drying the na tural juices are lost, and when used water to a considerable extent must be added to somewjiat make up the loss. Few people realise that there is an im mense market for canned vegetables in Australia. It has been thought that such places as Java, China, and the South Sea Islands are the places for canned veget ables. . But Australia is beginning to re alise that canned vegetables are a boon to the people, especially those away in the back parts of this great land. ! The time will come when canned veget ables will be sold at reasonable prices, and the market will then be unlimited. Housewives will not trouble to cook dried Vegetables when they can be bought in the canned state. Ther...

SPLIT HOOFS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1915

SPLIT HOOFS. A split in any part of the wall of the hoof is properly called a fracture. The terms " toe" or " quarter crack" simply in dicate the location of the fracture. The cause of such fractures is a weak, brittle wall, resulting frequently from an attack of founder, or from a wire cut or other injury to the coronary cushion which secretes the wall. The use of seated shoes, too much sole paring and rasping away the outer wall, which permits evaporation, are also predisposing causes. A fracture may originate at the plantar surface and work up to the coronet, o-r originate at the coronet and work down to the.plantar surface; it may be super ficial or deep, but as soon as it extends to tht .laminae, the split opens and shuts at e:aeh step, pinching the laminae between the .edges of the fractured wall and causT ing lameness. In neglected cases the foot may" become affected, in which case the wound must be treated arid .the edges of the fracture should not be closed until the inflam...
