THE SWEET BRIAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bathurst Daily Argus — 6 January 1909
THE SWEET BRIAR. j Mr. William Glasson, writing to the 'Herald,' says: — During aiecenttrip by rail to the western districts I saw near Tarana acres of ground taken pos session of to my knowledge for the last 30 years by the sweet biiar, and regard ed as valueless. I notice in to-days ' Herald ' that the Angora goat does well on briar feed and will eventually kill its roots by close feeding. Know ing; that the sweet briar was considered a most dangerour pest years ago, and that large sums of money were spent in clearing it from valuable ground, I was not a little surprised to be told by a sheepbreeder of large experience, who with others is suffering severely from the drought, that if he had no sweet briar on his run he would sow it j that it stands to sheep well in dry weather, and that they will eat it at all times ; and that the most effective and speedy way of de stroying the briar or the blackberry bush by anyone so desiring is to turn sheep on their growths.
