BUTTER UNFIT FOR EXPORT. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 20 June 1906

BUTTER UNFIT FOR EXPORT. In the House of Representatives on Thursday. Mr. G. W. Fuller asked whether the Minister for Customs had any official reports that there were factories in New South Wales making butter unfit for export, and, if so, would he lay them on the table? Sir William Lyne replied that he was not aware u mere were sucn reports. If there were, he would table them. Mr. Fuller : In view of what you have been doing lately, I want to know whether you have any such reports ? Sir William Lyne : I am not aware that there are any. Mr. Fuller: I don't suggest that there are, but I want to know whether, in view of the action that the Minister has recently taken, he has received any such official reports ? Sir William Lyne promised to make inquiries. The fact that Mr. G. W. Fuller is a lawyer may enable him to see some thing'in these questions. They sound, however to the average dairyman like so much electioneering' fudge.

WHEAT AS PIG FEED. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 20 June 1906

WHEAT AS PIG FEED. Long ago it was affirmed that when wheat fell to 2,9 per bushel, it was most profitable to convert it into pork. That the cereal is likely in the near future to reach that figure, no one, we think, is going to predict. Our North and South Coast breeders swear by corn (maize), and where that is the staple of a district it would be idle to talk of anything else. But in the wheat growing centres, the case is different. Some experiments lately caried out at one of the Ameri can agricultural stations, showed that on an exclusive diet of soaked wheat, given twice daily, young pigs made steady, and highly satisfactory growth. In England, peas are much in demand for pig-feeding. Each of these foods has its advocates, but all are agreed that a daily allowance of green stuff is a necessity. A wire from Bathurst states : — At the Co-operative Dairy Company dur ing May there were received 15,672 lb net of cream, and manufactured 7285 lb of butter, being an increase of 3454 lb...

THE BRANDING OF OUR BUTTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 20 June 1906

THE BRANDING OF OUR BUTTERS. A wire from Melbourne states that at Warrnambool, last week, am impor tant meeting was held to consider the question, and 70 delegates attended, representing the leading butter fac tory companies in the western dis trict and including Mr. R. Crowe; Government Dairy Expert, and Mr. H. \V. Osborne, manager of the Wes tern District Co-operative Company. The following two resolutions were eventually carried : — ' 1. That this conference, representative of Western District producers, is in favour of compulsory grading of export butter for educational purposes.' ' 2. That this conference strongly objects to the proposal to brand the grade of butter for export on boxes, and requests the Minister for Customs to amend the regulation relating thereto.' Strange to say after all that has been publish ed in one or two of our metropolitan dailies about the strenuous efforts re cently put forth bv Victorinn dairy men against the grading and marking of their butter, the...

PORK-PRODUCING FOODS. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 20 June 1906

PORK-PRODUCING FOODS. According to an Exchange the Wilt shire (E.) County Council carried out recently some pig-feeding experiments which are of an extremely interesting and instructive nature. The dry feed was soaked over night, at the rate of a peck to five gallons of water, except when milk was used, when it replaced its own volume of water. The pota toes were boiled, and the foods were not given them in a sloppy condition. Appended are the points given to the different feeds : — 1. Barley-meal, milk, potatoes, 1000 points. 2. Barley-meal and milk, 903 points. 3. Maize-meal and milk, 877 points. 4. Maize-meal and bean-meal, 590 points. 5. Barley-meal, 519 points. 6. Maize-meal and pea-meal, 489 points. 7. Maize-meal, 484 pfjin^s. 8. Barley-meal and bran, 409 points. 9. Maize-meal and bran, 404 points. The most suitable meat for bacon production was obtained from barley meal and bran'. Maize alone was found to produce excessive fat.

Another harvest is coming in the distance ; another year's bap bill — an- other season's bag lumping- the fanner lias to face. Is this to no on for ever? Are the grain growers of this State to be deprived of their ? f-l profit because our State Railway Department is too slow to «rasp the fact that the bulk .-ysU'in is the only economical way to handle wheat either on the farm, the railways, or on shipboard? Willi our large wheat areas we must become large exporters. Wheatgrow ing has come to stay, why not adopt means to place our wheat growers on an equal footing with their competi tors in the world's markets? Why not introduce the system in time for the coming harvest? There is no insur mountable obstacle in the way. Wheat has been shipped from Svdney in bulk, there is no diflicully about it. Our railway trucks could be readily adap ted to' carry bulk wheat, at small ...

FORESTS IN RELATION TO RAINFALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 20 June 1906

FORESTS IN RELATION TO .RAINFALL. At a meeting of the Dubbo Branch of the Farmers' and Settlers' Associa tion last month a most interesting paper was read by Mr. A. Wurfel on the above subject. In his prefatory re marks Mr. Wurfel explained that the matter submitted was largely taken from proceedings of the Royal Society. Tlin cuKio/.f i\t rlnfnrnct-nfrinr* nnri linw far it affected the rainfall was, said he, fraught with momentous issues, especially in this country. In his na tive land the Department of Forestry was one of the most important depart ments of the State. Throughout Ger many, and in many parts of France, all public roads are lined with double rows of trees — with fruit trees for pre ference — and the native growth is pro tected along watercourses, ditches and rivers. It is in Germany, particularly, that the management of the forests has received the greatest attention, and has for nearly a century been most sys tematically and scientifically conduct ed. It is recognise...

THE RUSH FOR LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Farmer and Settler — 20 June 1906

THE RUSH FOR LAND. The Merriwa Land Board on Wed nesday dealt with 60 applications for each of the two blocks of S26 and 707 acres respectively, in the parish of Cranbournc, county of Brisbane. Twenty considered the most desirable applicants were allowed to ballot. The nisi uKicK was drawn uy minur jumus Lcggett, and the second by Albert Er nest. Stent, and their applications were confirmed. All the applicants were local residents, and are a most desir able class of settler. Excepting the travelling stock reserves, there is no Crown land of any value unaJienated. Concerning this matter, Merriwa Branch Secretary H. C. Andrew, in sending us a list of the names of the sixty applicants, says: 'Every one, of them would make good use of the land if they got it; and yet fifty-eight of them must go without. Yet this land is joined by one estate (an absen tee company's) of 110,500 acres, and another of 120,000 acres. It is enough to make a man clear out for Queens land or some other place of...

THE WORK OF THE LANDS.
