COUNTRY AGENTS' REPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

COUNTRY AGENTS' REPORTS. Condon and Winstanley, of Glen In nes:-"We sold a splendid sheep pro perty this week, area 640 acres, free hold, with 1250 sheep on it, for £2150 for the lot. At the present time, the New England district is in a magni ficent condition, and prospects are very bright." William Cadell, of Quirindi:-"Dur ing the past month there has been a very keen demand for all descriptions of store sheep, wethers, and cross breds being the most sought after; but the supply of these is now ex hausted. There has also been an ex cellent demand for fattening aged i bullocks, and well-bred steers, but very few are available in the north of N.S.W. Female cattle and dairy sorts are still hard to quit, the de mand for fat stock, both sheep and cattle, has been good, but sellers seem to prefer Homebush market. In the property line, there are a number of first-class farms, now offering round Quirindi. All stock routes are in mag 'nificent condition, and the country looks better than ...

Quality i* all sections :was of a high standard, es pecially the baconers.

CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

CATTLE. Seventy-one owners sent 1850 head of cattle into the yards. Two of the drafts exceeded 100 each. Otherwise the yardings were made up mostly of small lines from 10 to 30 head. Con signments were chiefly from the Northern districts, with a few from the West and South. These latter were mostly cast dairy cows, that should have been relegated to the store market. It is nearly time that those in authority should take a stand, with a view of preventing the lower grades of cattle being sold at Flemington, for consumption, for no matter how strict the inspection may l)e at the slaughter houses, a large proportion of this low conditioned meat finds its way on to the market, to the detriment of the trade. The yarding consisted of about G50 cows, 100 vealers and yearlings, the balance being steers and bullocks. The-quality?.'ranged-??.from medium to good trade, with only a few odd prime yards. Messrs. Maiden Bros, topped this market with a draft of bullocks, fattened at Klori Estate, M...

Fashions of the Week THE RIBBON REVIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

Fashions of the Week THE RIBBON REVIVAL. The reign of ribbon is fairly be gun, After rather a long eclipse we are to see the ribbon sash and the rib bon loop and the ribbon bow in every shape and kind of knot. From the Japanese "obe" fashion is borroAvecl the idea of the large bow of ribbon at the back of the waist-long ends of the wide ribbon falling nearly, to liem of the skirt are' a Western ad dition to the Oriental sash; . Short waists are in again, which partly accounts for the popularity of rib bon, for the Empire style without the Empire sash is incomplete, and rather, meaningless. Rosettes and narrow ruches of ribbon arc seen on many of the new models, and as these require many yards, the employment of this new-old trimming will mean a heavy increase in the cost of the gown. ' Braiding is: still to the fore, however. Very wide ribbons of soft satin are used for scarves, and later on, we are to see these adorned with edgings and stripes of fur. Ribbon flowers, as well as chi...

MILK FEVER, OR DROPPING AFTER CALVING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

MILK FEVER, OR DROPPING AFTER CALVING. This disease sometimes causes very heavy losses. It affects the best cows, and those giving the greatest quantity of milk. Cows practically never have this disease before the birth of the third calf.. The symptoms of the disease are as follows: - The cow almost invariably has an easy calving, and appears to be do ing well, when suddenly from 12 to 48 hours after calving the animal is noticed to be shivering, and the milk nearly ceases. After wandering round for a short time in an aimless man ner, the cow staggers from side to side, and eventually falls. From this position she cannot be moved, even if a dog is put on to her. When ly ing down, she makes frequent at tempts to rise, and will dash the liead about in a manner which sug gests madness. Gradually, the ani mal becomes unconscious, the eyes wide open, but so insensitive, that the finger can be placed on the eye ball without the cow taking notice. If left to herself the cow will lie stretc...

MILLINERY MEMOS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

MILLINERY MEMOS. In hats the principal trimming is . the want of trimming. The shape of the new hat is everything now. One feather or one rose is enough to adorn a huge construction of felt or straw, and after the overloading to which our eyes have grown accus tomed, it is a distinct relief. Plain felt hats, in various rich-looking col ours are simply trimmed with a pleat of cord or silk braid, and finished off with a tassel of cut cloth. These are extremely pretty, besides being use ful for motoring, riding, driving, or country wear. These are round, in the old "pudding basin" form, but picture hats are still as wide as ever, and are suitable backgrounds for the rich plume in the new shape, which has a "willow" droop, but resembles the old kind of feather in the curl of its fronds. Polished beaver hats are seen at the shows, which have for trimming one jewelled ornament. Fur toques will be much worn, and these are also to be trimmed with a jewel, either real or sham, set in front.<...

SIGNS OF DISEASES IN A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

SIGNS OF DISEASES IN A HORSE. Frequent urination indicates exces sive quantity or irritation of the bladder, urethra, or kidney. Diminu tion in the quantity of urine voided may be due to a variety of causes, the principal ones being high fever, diarrhoea, disease of the kidney, _ or obstruction to the outflow of urine from the bladder. Changes in the appearance of the urine are the re sult of disease. Red flakes in the fluid denote a hemorrhage or suppu I'ation in the urinary tract, ^ while coffee-coloured urine is seen in aso turia. Painful urination is shown by frequent attempts, during which only a small quantity of urine is passed; by groaning, v-tc. This condition conies from inflammation of the blad der or urethra. Urine is retained by spasm of the muscle at the neck of the bladder, or by stone in tne blad der. In partial paralysis of the hind-quarters the urine dribbles away continually. . The condition of the faeces furnish us with a reliable guide to the con dition of the d...

THE MARKETING OF WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

THE MARKETING OF WHEAT. Australia, not so very many years "back, "was not regarded seriously as a - wheat-producing country, and the general idea seemed that she would probably not become a factor in the worlds supply. Her geographical situation which so far isolated her from, the markets of the old-world at that time, Avas a very serious handi cap/and also the recurring periods of drought and other climatic disadvan tages were looked upon'as almost in surmountable .barriers to wheat growing. But pluck and persever ance have gradually overcome these obstacles of climate and country, while the progress in.steamer transit lias brought, our markets nearer to those of the old world. Twenty . years ago New South Wales only produced 3,G49,216 bush els . of wheat, our last crop totalled 28,500,000 bushels. Twenty years ago, the entire .harvest of .Australia only registered 2G,000,000 bushels,"not sufficient -for internal requirements, now it lias risen to over 90,000,000 bushels, which giv...

VALUE OF STRIPPING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

VALUE OF STRIPPING. A Victorian farmer recently made an interesting trial with liis dairy herd to prove the value of stripping. The herd of 34 were yielding 148 lb. of milk per day in the autumn. As that did not pay for handling them, apart from feeding and paddock room, he made inquiries, and soon was sat isfied that the men were not bother ing to drain the udders. When they were made to do so, a gain was no ticed in a few days' time, and after 12 days the total yield showed a gain per cow of 12 ya lb. of milk per day. Heavy Stock Carrying.-A Bellin gen farm is said to have on 33 acres, 21 cows in milk, two bulls, three hei fers, 20 poddies, and five horses run ning, and was looking for another 20 head of stock to take on agistment "to keep the feed down." Finland exports ' a considerable quantity of butter of gQod quality. Norway and Sweden both have a well-organised and successful dairy industry. The dairy world is in debted to the latter country for one of the best-known cream s...

Veterinary ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

Veterinary >3) Correspondents, when asking for advice on general cases of disease, should be careful to supply the following information: 1. Age and Sex. , 2. Date on which sickness commenced. 3. Full symptoms of disease or injury, with particular reference (when indicated) to the breathing, presence or absence of pain, condition of the bowels. 4. State if other animals are affected. 5. If hand-fed, state nature and quantity of food given. 6. Mention what treatment has been already carried out. ANSWERS TO CORRESPONDENTS. "On the Land"' writes, asking for the proper itiethod to treat a swell ing under the saddle on a horse's back. This is most' probably due to an ill-fitting saddle,. and to prevent its recurrence, the padding of the saddle should be examined, and if found necessary, it should be re stufl'ed. It may also be caused by a bent or broken arch. The swelling should be fomented as early as possible after it is seen. Don't wait for it to go down, but assist it to do so. Wr...

TREATMENT OF BROKEN LEGS IN DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

TREATMENT OF BROKEN LEGS IN DOGS. Many valuable animals are ruined, for want of a little care and atten tion when a limb is broken. True, limbs set themselves some times, but the result can never com pare with a carefully set fracture. The limb is either shortened and de formed, or else what is known as a false joint forms, .which means that the ends of the broken bone do not join, but are loosely held together by tissue. Such a leg instead of be ing a firm base of support is of very little use at all. In this article, I shall only deal with simple fractures. These are fractures where there is no external wound, and the bone is usually only broken in one place. In treating such a fracture have the dog held by an assistant on its side in such a position that the broken leg is uppermost. Then prepare what is required to set the leg. This consists of two calico bandages, about an inch wide, and G to 8 feet long, a piece of lint or wadding, sufficient to envelope the leg, and splints ma...

DEATHS IN SHEEP AFTER SHEARING. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

DEATHS IN SHEEP AFTER SHEARING. it is often found that deaths oc cur after shearing, generally within 24 or 48 hours. On some stations this is noticed annually, and as time goes on there is a tendency for these losses to increase in extent. The deaths start suddenly shortly after shearing, and after continuing for a short period, suddenly cease. Usual ly no symptoms are noticed during life, but if examined after death, the carcases show the following: - The region round the wound will he found to be swollen and black. Sometimes this extends for some con siderable distance along the" floor of the chest and underneath the abdo men. The black appearance is due to the death of the part. The cause of the deaths is blood poisoning. The organism which in fects the blood making its entrance into the cuts made during shearing. The next step is to discover where the injection takes place. A large number of experiments have been made, which clearly shows that the organism which causes the dise...

DISCREPANCIES IN WEIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

DISCREPANCIES IN WEIGHT. A constant cause of friction and misunderstanding between country consignors and their Sydney agents is the difference between country and city weights. This has been known to amount to as much as 9 cwt. on a 6-ton truck of green lucerne hay. It is impossible to account for all this difference by saying that the hay must have dried and lost weight to that extent, for at the outside, this most changeable produce should not vary more than about 3 cwt. But the discrepancy in; weights is not con fined to hay, and"'even if the whole 01 the 9 cwts. were accounted for in this way, there would still be the shortages in Avheat, chaff and maize consignments rcalling for explanation. ? Some of these are even more marked than in the case of the hay referred to. A reputed 6-ton truck of chaff lias been known to be 26 cwt. short when weighed in Sydney, and a simi lar truck of maize has been 16 cwt. It is unthinkable that any con signor would deliberately give short weight...

DAIRY LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 17 February 1911

DAIRY LINES. Butter.-A large operator in butter describes the London market as sick, and the local market very naturally sympathises with it. A strong effort is still being made here to keep up the price, and 90/ is still the quota tion for best grade, but there has been an effort on the part of London buyers to lower this long-sustained price, and ..some have offered 88/, it is said without result. In view of the continual heavy supplies coming into the market and the indisposition of London buyers to operate freely at present prices, there is a growing feeling that the present dullness will end in reduced figures being ac cepted.. Anyway, it is becoming in creasingly difficult to obtain 90/ from buyers for export, who have limited their prjces. Indeed, it is stated that some large buyers have filled their orders at concessions ; but with a steady local demand the market has so far been able to hold at 90/. Good to medium stands at 86/ to 88/, secondary 80/ to 83/, and pastry at 70...
