FARMS READY FOR SETTLERS PREMIER NOT FOR PLAN [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

FARMS READY FOR SETTLERS PREMIER NOT FOR PLAN It is not intended by the Victorian Government to copy a proposal oX Mr. Tolmie, the Queensland Minister for Lands, and prepare farms ready for working- by settlers. Mr. Watt, the Premier, on being asked, in the absence of Mr. Lawsoii, Minister for Lands, and Mr Hutchin son, Minister for Agriculture, how he regarded Mr Tolmie's idea, said that h© thought the Victorian Government was doing as much for new settlers as it was advisable in this State of limited area, In the irrigation districts new settlers were -materially assisted. Land was graded, houses were erec ted and expert advice was given. Ordinary closer settlement allotments •were obtainable on easy terms. Pay ments extended over SI years and help was given to build houses. The policy was for the State to help those willing to help themselves.

AYRSHIRE CATTLE. ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

AYRSHIRE . CATTLE . ORIGIN AND DEVELOPMENT Ayrshire cattle originated (says Mr G. S. Martin, professor of dairying- in the North Dakota Agricultural Col lege) in the country of Ayr, which lies In the south-western part of Scotland.. Their origin is somewhat obscure, but the records date back over one hun dred and fifty years. 'This breed car ries a mixture of blood from several races of cattle on the Continent, but for the last one hundred years they have been bred pure. The conditions under which the breed developed were rather severe. The country lies close .to the sea, ris ing in rugged . hills covered with . heather, on which the cattle pasture. The climate is raw and severe at times, with much rainfall and snow. The soil supports good pasture, and is well adapted to growing root crops, which furnish ample winter food for the stock. Under these conditions the Ayrshire cattle have developed rugged constitutions, with strong ten dencies to readily adapt themselves to local conditi...

THE DAIRY PIG INDUSTRY CONSIDERATION OF BREEDS VALUE OF BERKSHIRES IMPORTANCE OF FEEDING [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

•CONSlDEJiR'ATIO'N OF BBE3BDS VALUE OF BERKSHIREIS IMPORTAsNiCE OF FEEDING By ."CASIETN." .For a long -tim© Berkshire pigs .held sway as the most profitable breed for Victorian dairymen and farmer#. Dur ing recent years the Yorkshire has come into prominence, and many fg-ybr a judicious crossing- of tlie two. Some prefer the Yorkshire, and have- dis carded the Berkshire altogether. Vary ing opinions are held regarding- the merits of- each breed: Mr Jas. Hamil ton, of Noorat, in the Western district, is one of the most experienced and successful pig- breeders in the State. Without disparag-hig- the undoubted Qualities of Yorkshire pig-s, Mr Hamil ton is of opinion that the Berkshire breed will show the best results overa number of years." He has handled both in a large way. The Berkshire is said to -be the hardier animal, and when properly managed is equally as prolific as the Yorkshire. There is an im pression that this is not so. Mr Hamil ton, however, is confident that the fecundi...

CARE OF HARNESS. A STITCH IN TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Weekly Times — 10 January 1914

.V-'r. v r'iCABIJu# i,v]ptftNESS A STHPOH IN TIMR: ^ it is worthy iof,. note, < apart from a matter of comfort, now: much more work eanbe done by A' horse with pro perly fitting harness, that is .kept in good condition by liberal oiling and cleaning, tlmn with any chimsy collar that seems to have feeen thrown oft, and which fits where it touches. Just imagine the discomfort to a small man having to wear a large man's clothes, and work in them all <rla.y, or a large man working in: a. small man's clothes. It makes a great difference whether harness is kept- soft and plia.ble, hard or rough, whether it fits" snugly or not. There are more horses permanently in jured by badly-fitting" harness than most people are &ware of. Jt is espe cially important in the case of young horses that .their collars should fit them well, and that the slope of the hamcs should be considered.
