LARGE SILOS CONDEMNED MODERATE SIZE BEST [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

IjARGK SHiOS CONDEMNED MODERATE SIZE BEST American dairymen are of opinion that large silos are not the best. They base their conclusions on the fact that the owners of the big silos do not have cattle enough to get down every day to the sweet silage that is below the surface, which has had extra fermentation owing to exposure to air. As a result they are forced to feed partly de cayed silage. A writer in "Hoard's Dairyman" says that with the ordi nary silage, 16ft. to 20ft. in diameter, one needs a feeding consumption of at least 3in. or 4in. a day. This can hardly be had without a herd of at least 50 cows. He advocates either a larger herd or smaller silo, otherwise the cow does not get the amount of good silage that she should have. The Iowa farmers are finding it more economical in the long run to have more silos, and smaller ones. If they are to be filled with the blower, adjustments are easier and more quickly made. If filled with carrier, the silos should stand about 4ft or 5...

WEST AUSTRALIA [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 3 January 1914

WEST AUSTRALIA Sir John Forrest, the Federal Trea surer, recently suggested to Mr Scad den, the Premier, that he should ask the Federal Government to relieve him of one-half the contract ~ to supply karri sleepers, and arrange for a sup ply of jarrah instead, thus delivering 60000 karri and 60,000 jarrah monthly.
