COWS HARD TO MILK. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

>COWS HARD TO MILK. There are two methods of treating the hard-milling cow. One is to use teat plugs or diiaters. They are merely piugs made so that they may be inserted in the end o£ the teat, where they, remain between milking periods. The reason a cow milks hard is because the sphincter muscle, which contracts the end o£ the teat, is rigid. The teat plugs remaining in tue teat between milking hours have a tendency gradually to distend and dilate this muscle in such a ■rra} uiiiiine cow eventually becomes easy to milk. The second method is to cut the teats, thus weakening the sphincter muscle. This is accomplished by a teat-splitter, an instrument cliat is in serted into the teat. .By pressing the end, small knives are pressed out in such a way that when the teat-split ter is withdrawn the musclo is sever ed. There is really no reason why one should utilise his time with hard milkers when by use of these inex pensive instruments they may be ren dered easy milkers. One precautio...

DAIRYING. THE COWYARD. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

DAIRYING. . THE COWYARD. Under usual condition?, the cow yard is a serious handicap to good dairy products. It should be set up on i. well-drained piece of land with the slope away * lrorn the milking shed and dairy. . The use of gravel iB to be recommended, and some have employed concrete to make sure that the cows are kept away from mud and tilth. The yard should be kept clean, and the manure removed promptly and conserved at some con siderable distance from tlie milking shed or dairy premises. This pre caution will also greatly help in keep ing down the number of flies. The practice of milking in unsuitable sur roundings is possibly doing more to retard progress in dairying than any other existing custom.

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

SCIENTIFIC FARMING. Farming is no longer without at traction for the enterprising young man. It is calling to its service the engineer and the scientist. A farm conducted on modern lines can em brace as many of the nowest mechani cal developments at any other form of Industry. Many farmers have now their own little laboratory, for exam ination of the soil, and suitable fertilisers, an electric plant for light* ing the house and supplying power to the workshops, petrol-driven milking machines, ploughs and cultivators,and portable engines of the internal com bustion type, for thrashing and barn work. Science having got this grip on agriculture, farm life cannot fail to reclaim many who abandoned it originally on the plea of monotony.

New Year's Eve. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

New Year's Eve. - There was 110 comparison bet ween the celebration of Christ mas Eve and New Year's Eve in Shepparton. On Christmas Eve the sliops were open till 10 p.m. and the streets - were crowded, presenting with the brilliant il luminations, a most animated spectacle. On New Year's' Eve, the shops closed at the usual Wednesday hour, viz, ■ 12 noon, and< the town was remarkably quiet. Some of the buildings were superbly illuminated at night. The only attraction was at the picture show, where a double programme was presen ted, lasting until midnight. From 11 p.m. young .people, more particularly, commenced to gather in Wyndham street, and just before midnight there were some hundreds gathered in front of the post oflice. Just before the clock commenced to strike the exit of the Old" Year," signifying the entrance of the New Year, the town band started to play "Auld Lang Syne." Other bell.s were rung, the report of discharged guns came in on the air from all quarters;...

IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

IMPROVING PERMANENT PASTURE. TtlG Value'at pornmiitriU pasture la often prejudiced by the. presence in it of a large number of weeds. Not only is the thick growth of the nour ishing grass hindered, but also nox ious -weeds spoil the quality, eo that -It-.is an essential part of good culti vation to keep" the pasture free from such unsatisfactory constituents. The question—How can I keep my pas ture land free from weeds? iB not, an; easy one to deal with. . There is, bow ever, no doubt that by a judicious use of chemical fertilisers much can be done. But chemical fertilisers alone will not do everything. Their use must often be assisted by other means. Sorrel is caused by .sourness of the soil through want of ventilation and drainage, and a deficiency of plant food, especially lime. The reason why fertilisers work in this beneficial way is that most weeds flourish in soils poor in the mineral constituents, lime, phosphate and potash. These good plant foodB do not agree with weeds, wh...

PASSING OF THE HOLIDAYS. NEW YEAR'S EVE. AUSTRALIA'S GREAT HOLIDAY NEW YEAR'S DAY [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

PASSING 6F THE HOLIDAYS. new Vear's eve. AUSTRALIA'S GREAT HOLIDAY I NEW*YEAR'S DAY The holiday season for 1913 14 is fast passing into the limbo of the "has-boens." Its incidents are stored'Up in .the memory. Business places, banks, public offices, and the doors of other institutions -are once more thrown open to the public,, until the next disturbing element in the shape of a holiday comes along. Only the school children and their teachers are at liberty, and will remain so for some three weeks yet. "Hogmany," New Year's Eve, is a great time in Scotland, and it seems to be equally so in Australia. New Year's Day seems to be the most popular holiday of the year with Australians as with the Scotch people. After the "explosion" of Tuesday, the weather, as.if ashamed of its pranks, became inoro subdued, and' so Thurs day was an ideal Australian sum mer's day.

PREVENTING EVAPORATION. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

PREVENTING EVAPORATION, The frequent stirring of the surface portion of the soil, as for example by cultivation and harrowing, Is an im portant question in lessening the am ount of evaporation and minimising the risks of drought toy breaking the capillary attraction. This operation is, of course, impracticable once a crop is sown, except in the case of the mangold or turnip or similar crops, when the drills are left sufficiently wide apart to allow of after-cultivation. With an ordinary crop, however, the soil has to remain undisturbed during the whole of the time the ground is occupied .by such crops, so that much more will depend upon the thorough ness of the tilth previous to sowing the crop. The principle object to be aimed at in the preparation of the land for such crops is to keep the surface cobbly while the underneath is com pact. This can be obtained by plough ing deeply, and by thoroughly culti vating as early in the season as pos sible, so that the surface need only be cu...

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

INJURY DONE BY WEEDS. In the treatment of weeds, it 1b em phatically a case of "a stitch in time saves nine." They should tie preven ted from seeding, whenever possible, and when buying Beeds for sowing, get them, pure, so as to tie certain that you are not sowing wild seeds. Weeds often grow more vigorously bhan useful plants, and, as a conse quence, they shade or crowd, or par tially choke the seedlings of the de sired crop. Weeds, naturally, make use of the same food as the cultivated plants among which they grow. Consequent ly, they deprive a crop of a large am ount of nourishment; and they rob the succeeding crop as well. On arablc~ soil, weeds are trespassers that should be prosecuted with the utmost rigor of the law.- WeedB having large leaf sur face draw from the soil and give off through the leaves a large amount of water, and thereby rob the surround ing plants. Many botanists consider this waste of moisture the most ser ious injury done by the weeds.

FOR THE FARMER. THE COMPOST HEAP. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

FOB THE FARMER. -THE COMPOST HEAP. B. Harrison, Burringbar, Tweed River, Inquires as to the proper Meth od of making a good and cheap com post heap,-for manuring purposes. The compost heap is a most valu able adjunct to a farm or orchard. The principle of this method of malt ing, manure is the fermentation of easily-decomposed vegetable material in the presence of earth and lime. It is not only substances like peat, litter, straw, which form the usual basis of compost heaps that are thus decom posable, 'but almost every kind of or ganic substance, both of vegetable and animal origin, can be thus composted. Dead leaves, bush scrapings, sawdust, weeds, tops and stalks of vegetables, as well as bone and animal refuse, the operation is much slower, and sub stances like bones, should be first crushed. It is also important to be sure that animal refuse so treated is not derived from a diseased source. As a general method of procedure, the following will 'be found satisfac tory:—Make a hea...

CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

CULTIVATION OF CARROTS. The carrot, which Is not grown so extensively as it might be with advan tage, resembles in composition the turnip and mangold, but it is much more concentrated than the former, ae it contains from 14 to 20 per cent, of dry nutritive matter against about 10 in the turnip. It flourishes best in deep loamy soils, not too wet, or the carrots are liable to rot, and not very dry, or the growth of the root is cramped. The soil must be deeply cultivated to per mit the long-penetrating root lull power of development. The ground should be well manured. Half-rotted stable manure, applied in the autumn at the rate of twenty loads to the acre, is a good prepara tion. The requirements of the carrot for a liberal supply of plant food are so great that, in addition to the dung, it can utilise with advantage a supple mentary dressing of readily soluble chemical fertilisers. The application of 3cwt. superphosphate, 26 per cent, soluble, and Miowt. of sulphate of pot ash, appli...

CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. [Newspaper Article] — Shepparton News — 5 January 1914

CONVENIENCES IN FARM HOMES. One of the strongest objections to country life by those who live in cities is that the conveniences of the farm home are few, and that the "work of the housewife is made a much greater hardship than it is in the cities. This is, as a rule, the case. The ordinary tarin home has not t' e labor-lighten ing improvements of the city home. There is no plumbings in the house by which the luxury of the bathroom can be had, no running water, no sew age system, heating is done by stoves instead of furnaces, and the whole plan of the house is to increase the steps of the good housewife rather than to lessen them. •Now, this is not as it should be. The farmer and tfis wife should have as many of the luxuries of life as may be possible, and it is possible to ar range the house of the farm so that many of the necessities of the city house may -be had. Recently equipped farm homes are usually better equip ped than are those of several years ago. This is by reason that ...
