Establishment of a (Tanning factory at Leeton. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

Establishment of a (Tanning jfactor^ at Xeeton. THE attention of settlers is directed to the fact that it has been decided to estab lish a canning factory at Leeton for demonstration purposes. For the pre sent, of course, there will be no fruit to can, but it is felt that considerable assist ance could be afforded to settlers who are in need of help if remunerative prices could be guaranteed for vegetables grown. Owing to the distance from the large cen tres, and the present unsatisfactory nature of the railway facilities, a market is not available for fresh vegetables grown in any quantity. Satisfactory prices can, however, be guaranteed for canned veget ables, provided the article be of good quality, and with this object in view it has been decided to establish the factory right away. Full particulars of the scheme will be found herein. The Settlers' Co-operative Society is largely interested in the matter and sett lers who contemplate going in for veget able growing should call o...

Budding and Grafting. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

Budding and Grafting. Every fruit grower should know the .., fundamentals of both budding and graft ing, as the occasion often arises when this knowledge can be' put to practical use. The methods used in budding and grafting-are not intricate, and if the few details are carefully followed any one, . no matter how inexperienced, can be fairly 'successful. ' .v. - - Both budding and grafting are us.ed 011 one and two-year-old- seed-bed stock, but-the former gives a better and stronger union . on most, varieties .of trees and... should be given preference whenever pos sible. When for any reason it becomes necessary to change the variety of any large tree grafting is the only'practical method. By cutting back tlie . four or five main limbs of a tree to about two feet in length, and grafting on to these limbs cions taken from a tree of the proper variety, these grafts in a few years will be bearing the. desired variety of fruit. "Budding is done during the growing period of the tr'e.e, a...

Irrigation IRecorb. Published Fortnightly 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. DAIRYING and pig-raising are destined to go together as a money-making pro position 011 the irrigation areas. The pig is the most valuable animal in utilis ing the skim milk which would otherwise go to waste. Thus the pig as a con sumer of skim milk, a collateral product of the cow; gives additional financial as sistance to the dairy farmer in 110 mean degree. With a butter factory on the spot, and a bacon factory in the near future, settlers can find a ready means of obtaining a return from their land almost at once. * * * . As- milk and butter-fat are merely the change that takes place in the feed the cow eats, and which she puts through a definite process by the machin ery of her body, it is at once important to remember that in the proper feeding of the right type, o...

Dairying. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

Dairying. In an article in the. December issue of the Agricultural Uazvite, Air M. A. 0 'Callaglian, Chief of the Dairy Division Department of Agriculture, makes some interesting* comments 011 the dairying prospects on the irrigation areas. After referring to the excellent results obtained from dairy cows on the area Mr. 0'Callaglian draws attention to lucerne growing as a prime factor in dairying under the. conditions imposed here. # # * ""As lucerne is the best forage plant which suits our Australian conditions, so the soil highly suitable for the growing of lucerne is more valuable for producing fodder crops than is any other class of land on the Murrumbidgee irrigation areas; having proved itself particularly suitable to the growth of lucerne the land has become valuable accordingly. # # # "There are certain conditions, how ever, necessary to make lucerne growing a highly profitable occupation, and one of these is that a farmer must be in a position to market the product at an e...

LEETON AGRICULTURAL WORK. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

LEETON AGRICULTURAL WORK. The Commissioner is considering the advisability of carrying out by private contract a certain amount of the agricultural work which the Commissioner is doing for settlers, . and he will be glad to hear from settlers who would be prepared to undertake such contracts. It is con sidered that in many cases work of this kind would be a valuable boon to settlers who have done all that they can do on their own holdings, and are looking round for something to keep the 'Wolf from the door,' until such time as their blocks become reproductive. Mr. Broatch will be glad if any settler, wishing to take advantage of this proposal, will communicate with him in writing, stating the kind ,of work he would be prepared to under take, the horses and plant at his disposal, the period of the year when he could be depended upon to place his services at the disposal of the Commissioner, and his qualifi cations for the work. In all cases the work would be done for cash, on complet...

A Ration for a Draught Stallion. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

A Ration for a Draught Stallion. The Stock Branch has been asked what is the best feed to give a draught stallion during the season, when serving about fifty mares, how much gre.en feed to give, and what is the best chaff during the season-wheate.n, oaten, or lucerne. In reply it was state.d that the best feed for the purpose would be Oaten chaff 18 lb. Oats.. .. 12 lb. Maize .... .... 4 lb. Beans . .. .. .... 3 lb. Salt .. .. .... .. .. 1 oz. This should be:i divided into four feeds, the largest to be given, at night after the. day 's travelling is "done; Barley, oats, and lucerne, as green stuff, are all good, but lucerne has tlie greatest feeding value. If any consid erable quantity of greenstuff be given, the ration should be reduced, more espec ially in the case of luc.erne, owing to its high nitrogenous content. Roughly, lib. of the dry feed mixture should be de ducted for every 21b. of green feed given, but the latter should not be allowed to re place more than one-third of t...

Guernsey Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 January 1914

Guernsey Cattle. Owing to the extremely heavy demand for the leasing of Guernsey bulls, the Minister for Agriculture has under con sideration the question as to whether the sale prices of young Guernsey bulls bred by the Department should not be re duced, with the object of encouraging the. farmers to purchase young bulls rather than to extend the leasing system. # *>. # - The leasing system was introduced for educational purpos.es, in order to demon strate the value of pure-bred bulls of good strains, but this purpose has been served to a great extent, and hence arises the question of sale versus leasing. The leasing system could possibly be extended to meet requirements, but the Department finds that there are too many farmers who do not take the necessary care of the bulls which they lease, and conse quently a number of these animals have been returned in anything but the best condition after leasing. w w After due consideration the Minister has decided to considerably reduce ...
