ADDITIONAL WATER RIGHTS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

ADDITIONAL WATER RIGHTS. Up to the present season it has not been possible to accurately measure the water delivered to settlers owing to the- fact that the installation of Dethridge meters ha's not been satisfactorily completed all over the Areas. It was the late Commis sioner's intention to have inaugurated the charge^ for additional water last season, but in view of the difficulty in measuring the amount supplied, the lack of experi ence on the part of settlers themselves in using the water, and the very trying conditions of the season, it was eventually decided not to insist on the lodgment of applications for additional water. This season, however, the conditions are quite different. .The drought is a thing of the past, and practically the whole of the farms have been supplied with Deth ridge meters. It has been decided, there fore, that this year application will have to be made by settlers for additional water, rights when they have used the total amount available under the s...

Dairying Returns. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

Dairying Returns. There is no dottbt the cow has come into her own again as a revenue producer on the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas. Dur ing the recent drought in the Riverina many settlers threw off their allegiance to her, and there is no doubt the temptation to do so was very great. Whether a man was following dairying as a pot-boiler or a main revenue producer, it required a lot of foresight and a strong mind to refuse some of the tempting agistment offers going practically begging and stick to the milking stool day in arid day out all through that trying time. It is safe to say, .however, that it paid to stick to the cow. Results are .continually coming to hand to prove it. Mr. Alexan der gives some striking figures in his notes this issue, and he has a few home truths to tell also. Settlers are invited to peruse those figures, and also those accompany ing this note, and ask themselves whether it is likely that the starving-stock-agist ment mirage will ever again lead Yanco far...

THE PLACE OF THE HAT CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

THE PLACE OF THE HAT CROP. By H. R. Alexander. At the present time all over the Areas hay crops have been cut and stacks of hay have sprung up mushroom fashion. In viewing the crops growing on the Areas and crops grown in the district under dry farming conditions, visitors to Yanco have remarked that many of the dry area crops are equal to and in some cases better on the average than those on the irrigated country. This fact leads one to ask why this should be. The reason is obvious: Last year the whole of the dry area country was suffering from a lack of rain, resulting in an absolute fail ure of all crops. The land that would last year have grown a crop lay fallow, While it was lying fallow the various plant food elements in the. soil were gra dually becoming available for the use of the next crop to grow on that country when rain fell. All land needs a period of rest, and notwithstanding that a man may manure and otherwise maintain the fertility of his soil, he will find that at ...

Instructional Notes. DAIRYING AND STOCK AGISTMENT. A Few Facts to Show Why Dairymen Should Not be Misled by the Stock Agistment Mirage when the Next Drought Gomes Along. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

Instructional Notes. DAIRYING AftD STOCK AGISTMENT. A Few Facts to Show Why Dairymen Should Not be Misled by the Stock Agistment Mirage when the Next Drought Gomes Along. By H. R. Alexander. During the last 12 months the dairy ing industry on the Areas passed through what may be considered as severe a test as it is likely tQ ever again experience. The condition of drought which prevail ed was extremely adverse, dairying being looked upon as an industry to be most successfully carried out in conjunction with our dry areas. For 12 months up to June last the dry areas were of no value to our dairying men, as practically no feed was available on the dry country. In addition to this, squatters and others offered extremely high prices to settlers for the use of their irrigable farms, more particularly farms laid down in lucerne. In fact such prices were offered for agist ment that it tempted some dairymen to relinquish dairying operations and sell out their cows. At the time, per medium o...

Mirool Cheese Factory. SOME HINTS TO SUPPLIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

Mirool Cheese Factory. SOME HINTS TO SUPPLIERS. By 0. Bailer. - The manager of the Mirrool Cheese Fac tory, Mr. Bailer, will, it is felt, need no introduction to Mirrool suppliers by the date these notes are published, as it is hoped to commence receiving milk at the factory not later than the 8th or the 10th instant. Still, he makes his bow to them and other readers of the " Record" this issue as a valued contributor. The notes he has sent along as a first instalment are an earnest of further sound advice to come. They show that the writer is not a theorist who looks above a struggling settler's head. One has only to read his remarks on cooling milk to ap preciate the fact that Mr. Bailer sees the settler's difficulties from the settler's point of view, and is out to help overcome them in the cheapest way consistent with effec tiveness. Some of the advice given is on the lines of what Mr. Alexander has already writ ten, but the basic principles of sound cheese production cannot be ...

A Plea for the Pig. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

A Flea for the Pig. BY "OBSERVER." The time has now arrived when the settler can produce pigs without fear of having them left on his hands. Of late years the demand for bacon has been steadily increasing, until to-day it is al most beyond the working man's power to purchase for his table. This should not be the case. Facilities are offered throughout the State for converting the pig into bacon at the least possible cost. Still the demand exceeds the supply. It is the custom generally in this State for the factory to depend upon the dairy farmer for its supplies, and the dairyman usually only feeds his pigs on by-pro ducts, such as skim milk, non-marketable maize, potatoes, pumpkins, &c. Grazing crops for pigs in most districts are sadly neglected. This should not, however, be the case in a district where unlimited water can be obtained for the successful growing of pig feeds. The pig will feed himself with the least amount of trouble to the farmer, if given the opportunity ...

How Farm Plants Feed. An Explanation of the Manner in which Nature's Pumps Draw Upon the Reservoir of Stored Water for the Plant's Supplies. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

How Farm Plants Feed. An Explanation of the Manner in which Nature's Pumps Draw Upon the Reservoir of Stored Water for the Plant's Supplies. The most important function the roots of farm plants have to perform is that of absorbing the moisture contained in the soil, together with plant food which such moisture holds in solution, and then de livering this life-giving liquid to the stems of the plant for distribution throughout its system. Scientists are pretty well agreed that the real absorbers are the very minute root hairs which branch out in myriads from the fine roots and not the fine roots them selves . King (,?" Irrigation and Drain age") says that these root hairs are usually not more than one-eighth of an inch long and one-hundredth of an inch or less in diameter. In the sketches being published this issue, therefore, the size of the root hairs have been very miich magnified. They form at the very tip of each ad vancing root, and die off after a few days, but by that time ne...

Hybrid Melons. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

Hybrid Melons. , Last season very large specimens of cer tain varieties of melon, notably " Cuban Queens," were common on. the Yanco Areas, and perhaps also at Mirrool. These as a rule were found on cutting to be of inferior quality, the flesh showing large patches and \ streaks of white, and eating very indifferently-in fact, sometimes it would not be at all palatable, quite a con trast to the usually splendid flavor of the Areas' melons. The common explana tion given was that the " bees had pro bably caused cross-fertilisation with a pie melon." Apparently this is but another case of the busiest insect workers being charged with a misdemeanor to which the plea is " not guilty," for scientific opinion seems to. prothat,., with . such phir.ts as melons and cucumbers, cross fertilisation does not immediately lead to inferior fruit. .Of course, it does, in terfere with the seed for next year's crop, but that is another stoiy. The quesiijn is, Can these crops be grown near each other w...

A NEW DISCOVERY. Concentrated Grape Juice. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1915

A NEW DISCOVERY. Concentrated Grape Juice. The American Department of Agricul ture announces that there has been dis covered at Washington a method for con centrating grape juice which promises to be the greatest discovery in the vine in dustry since Pasteur discovered the method of preserving light wines for the French Government. This new method is altogether novel, as it consists not in boiling down the juice, but in freezing the juice. The ice is then cracked into small pieces and whirled in a centrifugal machine; by this means all the sugar and. thick syrup are separated from the ice, which is almost pure water. A gallon of the syrup, is thus reduced to one quart. . A peculiar phenomenon incident to this process is .the fact that the cream of tar tar crystallises out with the ice and makes the acidity of the juice, much less than normal. :This new method of freezing the juices to concentrate them preserves in a wonder ful degree the natural purple color of the juice and makes t...
