Dairy Report. DANGER OF AMBER CANE. [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 12 February 1915
Dairy Report. DANGER OF AMBER CANE. In his report to the Kerang Shire Council last week on the pre sent condition of the local dairy industry, Inspector Hooper said fhat the chief cause of the present unsatisfactory cream supply was the practice of keeping it too long before heing churned. In the western portion of the Shire there were only weekly deliveries. Such cream Was next to worthless. But the dairymen had not enough cieam to make it worth their while to send oftener. Even then the cans were only half full. At Co liuna the cream carts were running as usual, but even in the east the cream often arrived in a very bad bad condition. The dairies them selves were in' a neglected condit ion. One particularly bad case was at Mead, and another on- the Gunbower Island. " Surprise, vi sits showed that the separator had been left unwashed from a previous 'operation, the place was littered, and'the fowls had free access to the separator room, whilst a cat and kittens had there abode ther...

Very little Quality bullock beef came forward. There was the usual attendance of the trade, and two of the Melbourne wholesale men: were opera! ins. Prices for one or two odd pens of bullocks showed very little alteration from llic previous sale, but for middling descriptions of bullocks of which there was a Rood number penned, the, demand was dull, and lower prices ruled. The useful lo good cows and heifers were al so very much duller all round, and with the general market 'fluctuations'- values declined from tOs to 20s per head. Ye.tl ers are in request, but bulls, of which a larger nilmber than usual were yarded, were .easier. Stores are also dull and sales', hiu'd to effect.

CORRESPONDENCE. WELL SINKING. THE DIVINING ROD. (To the Editor of the "Farmers' Weekly."). [Newspaper Article] — Cohuna Farmer's Weekly — 19 February 1915
CORRESPONDENCE. WELL SINKING. THE DIVINING ROD. (To the Editor of the " Farmers' Weekly."). Sir,-Your account of the success ful sinking of the deep well at the Gunbower Butter Factory makes pleasant reading for many of : us who are at our wits' end to get wa ter for an acre or two of winter feed. The unpleasant part of the story is the cost, and also the great risk. Few people would care to go to the expense of .6250 to get even a good well of water; and there's the great risk of failure. You might strike a good spring at 40 or 50 feet, and you might not strike any water at all, although you sink 300 feet for it. That man would deserve a monument in every nor tlicrn town who could dcfinilcly lo cate underground water without boring or tlis:f?iup:. Is there any thing in this , divining rod ' busi ness, Sir ? I have repeatedly heard it said that there are certain per sons called ' dowsers' who by means of a forked hazel stick can tell exactly where underground springs are to be found...

KERANG. The stoppage of pumping from the Murray on Saturday at the Torrumbarry head works for a period of fourteen days, in accord ance with an inter-State arrange ment, has left Kerang with a very limited supply of water in the Loddon.
