How to Start Dairying. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1913

How to Start Dairying. THERE are indications that dairying is about to make considerable headway on the irrigation areas during the ensuing year. The farms to be made available on the Golgedrie section will be specially suited to dairying, and dairy farmers will no doubt readily avail themselves of the opportunity. ^|!» W W Before commencing dairying 011 these irrigation areas it is desirable to have proper buildings and conveniences erec ted. Much of the alleged drudgery asso ciated with the industry is due to a dis regard of essential requirements at the outset. Lack of capital, of course, is responsible for this in many cases, but an industrious man can do much himself in establishing a good equipment at very little expense. If milking machines can be secured the industry may be carried 011 under most agreeable conditions. Cer tainly the cows require attention seven days a week, but even this is rendered less irksome under the improved methods of milking, handling', and feeding t...

Importance of Tillage. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1913

Importance of Tillage. Tillage opens the soil for reception of water and is even more important for the admission of water by irrigation than by rainfall; because an irrigated surface beT comes more densely and deeply, com pacted by the puddling action of a volume of Avater than by the action of rainfall^ even when the latter comes in heavy, downpours;- In fact; soil com pacted by irrigation becomes loosened and disintegrated by the action of sub sequent rainfall. ^ ''' For the same reason the penetration of irrigation is less than that of the same amount of water falling'as rain, and the consequent formation of an excessive amount of surface roots not only con tinually lessens this penetration but in creases the danger of drought-i'ijury and limits the plant food availab) i to the plant by confining its root activity to a shallow surface-layer of soil. For the same reason, the aeration 'of the soil is reduced and is rendered less hospitable to the plant. ' # . & # Tillage i...

Rents and Water Rates. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1913

Rents and Water Rates. Ais there appears to be a misunder standing* in the minds of some of the settlers as to the powers of the Com missioner regarding rents and water rates, he desires to explain, in amplifica tion of his verbal statements that have been iiiade from time to time, that the payment of rent is a statutory liability under those provisions of the Crown Lands Act, which refer to irrigation farms. These provide that a condition of the lease shall be payment of rent. Not only the Commissioner, but the Auditor-General has thus a statutory duty to see that rent is paid in respect of every farm that has been disposed of. A concession was made to settlers from Among' the Pines. Mr. T. J. Herbert's residence, Yanco Irrigation Areas. America that they would have their farms for one year free of rent. In order to meet the terms of this arrangement,, a special sum of money has to be voted by Parliament,: in order that the liability in regard to rent may be met in respect of these...

Boundaries of Farms. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 December 1913

Boundaries of Farms, H Mr. Frank H. Brewster writes:-"The pegs marking the boundaries of farms are in almost every, ease throughout the Yanco Area pulled out or displaced when the fences on farms are erected. This is a great pity in many respects, and will cause a great deal of trouble and expense if, in the future, any further surveys such as re-subdivisions of farms, have to be made. Tt is an easy matter to leave the pegs marking the boundaries intact' with out giving the settler any ,extra trouble in fencing. . The corner straining posts could easily be placed to the side of the survey pegs. ' ? -x- # # "I would recommend that the attention of all settlers in future be drawn to the fact that the corner pegs of farms should not be removed. T am not sure whether, under the Lands Act, it is an offence to remove - the pegs, but I believe it is so. Would the Manager please take action in regard to this.matter'?"
