Irrigation Record. Published Fortnightly 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 — 16 February 1914

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. UP to the present time the people of New South Wales have always looked upon the North Coast District as the dairyman's Utopia. There is no doubt their faith in the Coast has been justified by the results obtained, but it is not too much to say that from now onwards the people of this State will be able to affirm that New South Wales contains another favoured district which will, in a short time, chal lenge the North Coast to its right to the title of the most successful dairying cen tre in the State. That district is the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. * # jfc 'This assertion is not made without good ground. Much has been published as to the possibilities of Yanco from the dairying point of view. Mr. M. A. O'Callaghan, State Dairy Expert, has al ways been enthusiastic as ...

A Visitor's Impressions. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 February 1914

A Visitor's Impressions Men of note in the commercial life of I the State, as well as distinguished visi tors from other parts of the world are | continually visiting the Irrigation Area, and hereafter an effort will be made to obtain their impressions of the scheme and its prospects for the information of readers of the Record generally. It is anticipated that this information will be of great interest. This week, for ex ample, Mr. P. Duffy, of the well-known firm of Duffy Bros, and Coy., Ltd., Fruit Importers and Exporters, visited the area in the company of Mr. E. Johns, of the Australian Fruit and Produce Coy., and Mr. J. C. Harlan, a Southern Californian, largely interested in the fruit industry. Mr. Duffy has been engaged in the fruit trade for over 30 years, and his time has been about equally spent in Cali fornia watching the firm's interest on the American side and in New South Wales. He is, therefore, in ;a unique position for comparing the conditions on the area with thos...

Beekeeping [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 16 February 1914

Beekeeping BEESWAX. EVERY bee keeper would have a slightly different method of starting an out apiary, but, in my opinion, the simplest plan is to choose twenty of the best hives in the home yard in the month of Sep tember. Before carting these to the site, take forty empty hives fitted with starters. Then some suitable evening take your twenty prime hives to the site and immediately 011 arrival divide each into three parts, making 60 good strong nuclei. Now, with a good ripe queen cell to the forty nuclei without queens and the job is done. For a honey house I would pitch a tent until the site proved to be a good one. TP "J* The cheapest, coolest and most per fectly bee-proof honey house is made from sun-dried bricks, provided water is handy. Two men could make enough bricks in one day to build a room 10ft. by 16ft., and it is cheap and everlasting. # # # Extracting is now in full swing, and great care must be taken not to extract any honey before it is thoroughly ripe, for unripe ...

Lucerne v. Paspalum. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

Lucerne u. Paspalum. THE Commissioner is considering the ad visability of gazetting paspalum as a noxious weed as far as the irrigation areas are concerned. It has been tried at the Yanco Experiment Farm, and al though it grows well under irrigation Lt has proved itself an absolute pest. Once it gets into the irrigation or drainage channels of the farm it takes a tremend ous amount of time and labour to eradi cate it, and its value as a fodder plant is not to be compared with that of lu cerne. Recently, in conversation with a North Coast dairyman, who was visiting the area, the writer made .some enquiries as to the present position on the North Coast as far as paspalum was concerned. It is generally understood that, during the last few years the grass which un doubtedly made the North Coast as a dairying centre has not been giving the same satisfaction that it did in the early days. Apparently, however, in some dis tricts it has been subject to very serious deterioration indeed. Som...

One for Mirrool. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

One for Mirrool. ARRANGEMENTS have been made for notes of interest regarding Mirrool to be for warded for publication each issue. Mr. D. G. Stark has kindly consented to act as local correspondent for the Recordy and anyone having news of interest re garding Mirrool is requested to get into touch with him. If Mr. Stark's notes are all up to the standard of the following as regards in terest, the Record will be lucky indeed; but listen to what he has to say: In view of the general advertising done by the Commissioner and the amount of publicity of other kinds given to the area it is really surprising what an amount of misconception still exists in well-informed circles regarding the scheme. Lately, in a leading metropolitan journal, under the heading "Broom Mil let from Yanco," Messrs. Pryde Bros, and Howe's farm at Mirrool was referred to as "Griffith Farm, Wilbriggie!" Simi lar errors are of constant occurrence. The sample of broom millet referred to, however, is worthy of note, an...

A Visitor's Impressions. (Continued from last issue.) [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

A Visitor's Impressions. (Continued from last issue.) THOSE settlers who are wondering bow to make ends meet until their orchards come into bearing will probably be in terested to learn that many of the most successful orchardists in California were faced with the same problem until it was discovered that sugar beets and beans formed a solution there of the difficulty. It is doubtful whether sugar beet will be of much use. in Australia as the sugar cane,'which grows so luxuriously in por tions of the Commonwealth, provides sufficient sugar for our requirements. There is, however,^ a lot to be said for the beans. In California the beans grown in the young orchard are princi pally "haricot," "dwarf lima," and the "Mexican red bean." These are dried and canned with pork. Almost every body in Australia who has read any American novel of recent years has pro bably recollections of coming across the expression '1 baked beans and pork,?' pro bably with the word "Boston" pre fixed. It appea...

More Dairying Results. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

More Dairying Results. Actual amount per cow per month re ceived from September, 1913, to Janu ary, 1914, by the twelve settlers referred to in the last issue of the Irrigation Record. In the last issue of the Record informa tion was given regarding twelve herds of cows on the area, the returns from which had remained somewhere near the £1 per head mark during the months of November and December. The returns for all these herds are given hereunder from September last right through until the end of January. The figures for Janu ary tell a sad tale. In five instances out of the twelve the figures are still above the £1 mark, in the others there is a fall ing away more or less serious. We are not at liberty to publish the names of the settlers referred to, but it can be safely said that the men who have kept up the average through January are those who have gone to the trouble of providing good rotation crops as fodder for their cows. The whole of the other seven have been more or less...

Feeding of Dairy Stock. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

Feeding of Dairy Stock. EVERY farmer on the area is aware of bow well dairy cattle produce milk on the natural pastures that grow during the spring and winter months, and so long as fresh pasture grasses are abundant the ordinary cow is about as well provided for as she can be to produce milk economically. Unfortunately, the season of abundant pasturage does not continue through our summer months, hence the dairyman must be prepared to feed his cows through this period, and not, as is the tendencv when field and other work is pressings let the cows get along the best way they can on scanty pastures. The maximum production of a cow can only be maintained throughout her lacta tion period by an abundance of palatable food, a balanced ration, and succulent feed. In producing milk the cow may be looked upon as a-milk-producing machine, which we supply with a certain amount of raw material in the form of feed; this raw material is manufactured into milk. She is, like any other manufacturi...

Sheep Raising on Lucerne. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

Sheep Raising on Lucerne. In the Goulbtirn Valley at the present time there, is 110 question being so gen erally clisenssed as that of sheep raising on lucerne.. Until recently the very large areas of irrigable land in the Goul burn Valley put down with lucerne were almost exclusively used in the feeding of dairy herds, and the consequent produc tion of butter and pigs. Recently, how ? ev.er, some settlers have been extremely successful in fattening she.ep on the lu cerne areas with the result that all over the district there is a very evident ten dency for settlers to discard the old and well-tried dairy herd and graze their lu cerne off with sheep. Thinking men of tho district are shaking their heads dubiously as to the ultimate result of this specu lative experiment. While, admitting that dairying is laborious work, and a continual tie on the settler, there is no doubt that the results are sure and the profits comparatively large. With she.ep raising on the other hand, although l...

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. FOR the past twenty years a lot has been heard in the Commonwealth of the bene fits to be derived from unity. Such mot toes as "Unity is strength," and "United we stand, divided we fall/' have been connected more or less with almost every phase of our political and social life. The benefit to be gained by any body of people interested in a particular matter, who unitedly face the problem which confronts them, is admitted by all schools of thought whether advanced or conser vative. # # # In a community such as the Murrum bidgee Irrigation Area, where we pride ourselves on that fact that we are, at any rate, in the vanguard of progress, it is rather remarkable that this matter, which may be termed one of the basic principles of our national life, has, to a certain extent, ...

Electric Supply on the Area. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

Electric Supply on the Area. A RESIDENT electrical engineer is now sta tioned on the area, and he will welcome any enquiries, either made personally, by letter, or through the columns of th-3 Record, on the question of electric supply (either light or power). He is endea vouring to call on as many of the sett lers as possible, to discuss these matters with them, but the area is a large one, and his speed of transport is limited, so settlers between Yanco Siding and Stoney Point thinking of installing any other than electric power immediately are advised to look before they leap. Almost any machine can be efficiently driven by an electric motor, and with the advan tages of cheapness, small initial outlay, and convenience as well, it has advan tages over other sources of power. Again, with the electric motor the speed re mains practically constant at all loads within the power of the motor, although when the load falls off the current con sumed . by the motor decreases accord ingly. ^...

HANDLING SHEEP ON THE FIELD. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 2 March 1914

HANDLING SHEEP ON THE FIELD. In connection with this important mat ter, Mr. Stover has very decided opin ions. He considers it absolutely essen tial to divide the lucerne field up into paddocks-at least four were essential, but he preferred five or six. With a 50-acre block of lucerne four of the pad docks should be ten acres in extent with two smaller ones of, say, five acres each. From experience he found this the best system. The shape of the paddock should, of course, conform to the natural outline of the block. His idea was to put the sheep on one of these, fields when the lucerne had practically reached the cutting stage-a little before, perhaps, but not much. Sufficient sheep should be. allowed in the paddock to graze it down in a week or ten days, not longer. If the weather happened to be dry and the paddock became dirty and dusty, it would be well to shift the. sheep temporarily on to one of the small paddocks and give the wind a chance to clean up the dirty field. The litt...

"POILITE" Asbestos Building Sheets (Genuine British Made) One of the chief features about " POILITE " lies in the fact that it is ANT-PROOF. For this reason alone you should consider the wisdom of Building with "POILITE" Sheets. But there are other reasons, perhaps, equally as important. We mention a few "POILITE" Sheets are fire proof, therefore take the lowest rate of insurance. They are heat-proof, climate-proof, are easily put up, and will not warp.

Any hive that is be^ hind its fellows in honey-gathering. qualities .. or. numbers--providing, of course, that such hives were in proper ? condition at the right time-should have their queens replaced with young ones from a reliable source. These can either be procured by buying them or breed ing them oneself; if the former, the worthless queens should be killed two days before the new queens are to arrive, for a hive must be queenless 48 hours before a strange queen can suc cessfully be introduced. It is possible, however, to introduce a queen when the hive has been queenless only a few hours, but the beginner's safest plan is to let the hive remain queenless for two days before an introduction is attempt ed. One of the simplest plans-if we intend rearing our own queens-is to remove two frames from the centre of the brood nest in the hive'we intend to breed the young queen...
