Tuberculosis in Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Tuberculosis in Cattle. So far we have no evidence of tubercu losis in our dairy cattle on the irriga tion areas. It is, however, an insidious disease, and might come in with cattle notwithstanding our precautions. The climate is against the disease getting a serious hold here. In America they have devised a .scheme for minimising or con trolling the disease. The American Agriculturist, referring to tuberculosis, says that for several years the entire herd at Woodcrest has been under federal supervision. It is the regular practice to test the entire herd twice each y£ar for tuberculosis. Every reacting animal found during tliese isemi-annual tests is removed to a separate set of buildings one mile distant from the main barn. At this farm a model barn has been erected, for the Woodcrest people believe in giving their cattle careful attention and the best of care. # # # i The government induced the proprietor to adopt the Bang system of eliminating tuberculosis. He has become a very e...

The King of Fodder Plants. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

The King of Fodder Plants. Mr. Berriman, manager of the Com mercial Bank, Mannum, recently spent a couple of days in Renmark, and was much interested in the process of irriga tion adopted in this settlement and the results achieved thereby (says The Mur ray Pioneer). To a representative of this paper Mr. Berriman explained that he had embraced an opportunity of see ing the river above Mannum, where he has been stationed for the last few years, and had been much impressed by the evidences of progress on its banks. Some years ago; he was stationed at Bacchus Marsh, in Victoria, where lucerne fields are freely irrigated and farmers make big money by dairying. In Mr. Berri man'ts time a good deal of the irrigation was done by means of traction engines, which moved from farm to farm and pumped water from the Werribee and Larderderg rivers. The cost of the yearly irrigation ran to £3 an acre. Of late years water has been made available by gravitation. The Pike's Creek reser voir, construc...

Take Care of the Manure. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Take Care of the Manure. Dairying on the irrigation areas has even more to recommend it than the value of the actual product. Although a dairy farmer may have 150 acres of irrigable and dry land combined, it is a small holding compared with the areas used for the purpose under, "dry" farm ing conditions. When milking 100 to 200 cows on such an area the dairy farmer should be enabled to vastly im prove his land if he takes care of the manure. # # # The cow maintains the fertility of the soil. When it is considered that one ton of hay sold off the farm removes a>s much fertility as £10,000 worth of but-, ter-the fertilising value of the butter being only about 2/- per ton-the value of..,the manure from, the cows can be. better- realised. Protected from waste and. properly applied to the land, it is estimated that it will require about one tenth-of one per cent, of the value of the butter sold to purchase enough fer tiliser to replace all the fertility removed by the sale of butter....

Irrigation Record. Published Fortniglitly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irrigation Record," Leeton, N.S.W. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Hnidation IRecotb. Published Fortniglitly under the authority of the Commissioner for Irrigation at Leeton, New South Wales, Australia. Address all communications to THE EDITOR, " Irriga tion Record," Leeton, N.S.W. "ALL flesh is grass." We owe our ex istence to grass. The cereals as well as the stock fodders come under the heading of grass. The varieties and quality of grass are determined largely by the influences of climate and en vironment. Nature suggests certain kinds of grass for special localities. Indigenous grasses of stock feeding value should be fostered and main tained. Exotic grasses in many cases have done well after being transferred from their natural habitat to other parts of the world, but it is consistent to argue that there is, a better chance of main-, taining reliable pastures, especially under irrigation, if the native grasses are looked after with proper, sub-divid ing into paddocks to enable the grass to be irrigated, to give it a chance to seed annually, a...

Additional Agricultural Work. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Additional Agricultural Work. The Commissioner notifies that, "at the present time agricultural work is clone for settlers, on terms of repayment cov ering 10 yeans, to the value of £30," and that he "approves of further agricultural work being done for settlers condi tionally on the second amount, viz., £25, being repaid by instalments covering a period not exceeding five years." # # # Settlers likely to require agricultural work done by the Commissioner's teams are requested to state on or before the 15th January next the amount and class of work they want done so that arrange ments can be made to have the work in sections, thereby saving the teams much time in travelling to and fro which, under present conditions, is unavoidable. While not giving any guarantee to carry out the work applied for, every effort will be made to do so. Although it is not absolutely necessary that deposits be paid at present, an esti mate of the work should be made as accurately as possible, so that suf...

Mirrool Irrigation Area. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Mirrool Irrigation Area. THE manager of the Murrnmbidgee Irri gation Areas (Mr. Broatcli) recently visited the Mirrool -section of the irriga tion scheme to confer with settlers rela tive to several requirements for that area. Tlie. President of the Mirrool Irri gation Settlers' Association (Mr. Haw kins) and many other settlers met the manager, and stated what the settlers re quired of the Commissioner. EXPERT ADVICE. ;? It was pointed out that expert advice was not available at Mirrool in the same way as at Yanco, and the Manager was A Cool Retreat, Yanco Experiment Farm. This plioto. sliows a five years' growth of Oriental Plane, Kurrajong and Sugar Gum Trees. During the recent severe, though somewhat unusual, weather conditions the belts of trees at the Yanco Experiment Farm proved an effective shelter from the hot north-westerly winds. These windbreaks are an object lesson for settlers who have planted orchards. Their value is fully manifest to anyone in the orchards at the Exp...

Beekeeping. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Beekeeping. By BEESWAX. WITH the bush full of bees it is an easy matter to start an apiary. If one goes to a water ihole on a hot day, bees will be seen drinking freely. Note the direc tion the bees are going and follow them. If they are flying low, you can depend the hive is not far off; but if they are flying high you may depend the hive is some distance from the water. * * # If there is little or no honey about,, the easiest way to find wild hives is to take about a dozen chunks of honey comb in as many small boxes. Place these some distance apart-the further the better-in a locality where you are sure there are wild bees. Now walk from one box to the other, and when the bees get working on the honey, note the way they fly, and move the honey along in that direction; but be careful that you carry along with the honey some bees that ar.e feeding so that when the honey is placed in the next position the be.es will be able to find it again quickly. Every time the boxes are shifted y...

Mirrool. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Mirrool. Mr. D. G. Stark writes: "A move is being made towards forming a branch of the N.S.W. Agricultural Bureau at Griffith. It is considered that the Bureau will be a useful medium through which much valuable information to settlers re garding agriculture and irrigation can be disseminated, besides providing' oppor tunities for the experts attached to the Department at Leeton to give lectures and demonstrations. The first action of the Bureau, which is expected to be open early in the New Year, Avill probably be the arranging of a practical demonstra tion in grading land for lucerne, the Manager (Mr. Broatch) having promised to have this done as soon as the neces sary grading implements are available. : ' jJc # jJ: "Negotiations are proceeding for the erection at Griffith of a public hall and committee rooms, to be the headquarters of the local Irrigation Association, and suitable for all purposes connected with the Agricultural Bureau. # # # "We held the first concert at Griffit...

Grazing Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Grazing Lucerne. The Victorian Water Supply Commis sion recently arranged for Mr. J. H. Refshange, Principal of the Agricultural High School at Ballarat, and Mr. John McDonald, a successful settler, to in spect the irrigation areas of Victoria and advise settlers regarding the treatment of the soil and the growing of crops. # * # In reference to the grazing of lucerne it is stated that on several, blocks in each of the areas, we noticed that the grazing of. stock on lucerne fields was being practised. Grazing may do such injury to both plants and soil, that heavy and profitable crops cannot be looked for. If stock are allowed- to graze over .crops when the surface is at all moist, the soil on drying out becomes so hard and padded that aeration cannot go on. Intensive farming cannot allow of this treatment of permanent crops. Spec ial crops might be grown for grazing purposes; but, after being grazed, till age operations must be carried out to get good physical condition of the soil....

Improving the Herd and Feeding Cows. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Improving the Herd and Feeding Cows. THERE are many useful suggestions made from time to time by men exjDerienced in providing feed for dairy cows. Such advice may fit the conditions of some settlers or be a guide in their future operations. For example, the Victorian Water Supply Commission furnishes-a re port by one of its inspectors which is worth attention. In dealing with the im portant phase in dairying', namely, the proper breeding up and maintenance of a dairy herd, the inspector inter alia says: # # # In dealing with this question I will' assume that the fact is realised that a very large number of the cows that are now kept by th£ settlers are of a quality that its entirely impossible of being made profitable for dairying. Also, many of the settlers who have cows are without the almost necessary experience, or adaptability to manage cows profitably. Therefore, how shall we increase the re turns from what we have'? #.& I will say, first, after the selection and prop...

Cultivating Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Cultivating Lucerne. Mr. F. G. Chomley, Manager, Yanco Experiment Farm, writesI would like to sound a note of caution to settlers who practise the very necessaiy operation of scarifying their lucerne. # # # On land which has but a slight fall and inclined to be stiff, the direction of culti vation. should be up and down the grade. If two strokes are given-one across the other-the final scarifying should be in the direction of the flow of the water. «M» , . > W ^ W A plot at the Experiment Farm, which consists of very shallow soil overlying clay, was cultivated in two directions with a double-disc cultivator, the, second stroke being across the very slight fall, the hope being that the land would be given a thorough soaking.

Cultivating Maize. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 December 1913

Cultivating Maize. "SUCCESS with maize depends more upon the cultivation which the soil receives both before the crop is sown and while it is growing, than upon any other factor." So wrote the manager of Coonamble Experiment Farm a year ago. "Unfor tunately it does not receive the attention it deserves. If cultivation is given at all, it is only to kill weeds, which are looked upon as pests, but which indirectly are the farmer's best friend." They lead him to work the land in a way that bene fits accrue of which he is hardly con scious. This question is referred to in the Department's Weekly Notes. . JL TP W Maize really requires an enormous amount of water to maintain it during growth, and to ensure a profitable crop, but even if we say what that amount is, the case would not be fully stated, for it has to be remembered that of every heavy rain a proportion is lost by "run off," and the heavier the rain the greater the "run off" is likely to be. Further, a pro portion is lost by ev...
