Milking Sheds and Yards. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

Milking Sheds and Yards. The site of a milking shed and yards is a matter of importance that many farmers do .not properly ap preciate (writes a practical dairy man). Very often they are built so as to be handy to the house or near other shedding accomodation sometimes to save room, and some times to utilise the sides of buildings. The ideal site, in my opinion, should be at least 150 yards from stables, dwellinghouses, of other buildings. It should be, if possible, on a place open all round, and not be shut in by trees, as is so often seen. It should fie on a slightly elevated piece of ground^ and ac cessible at least to the prevailing summer winds. The' elevation is, of course, of great" importance. Not only will it facilitate the washing yfl and removal of ob jectionable deposits, but it will enable the farmer to carry away by means of concrete draius all such matter to some distance. It is no use to keep yards and sheds spot lessly clean if a heap of manure and washings are kept...

How to Minimise the Effect of Drought. The Value of Ensilage. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

How to Minimise the Effect of Drought. The Value of Ensilage. I After the very trying time the Coinniuinvealth lias passed through owing to the drought, farmers and graziers should take advantage of the abundant growth of herbage and make provision agaiut such an occurrence as past experience has proven that droughts occur fre ijuc-ntly. The use of ensilage as a substitute fo; green fodder during periods of drought or spells of dry weather, or for winter use, is less extensive in Australia than the circumstances would appear to warrant. There is, however, a a growing disposition on the part of dairy farmers to make the silos on their holdings, as they find that by its ueans the output of milk, both in regard to quantity and quality may be kept up long after the supply of ordinary green food is exhausted. Sheepbreeders are also recognising the fact that during the protracted periods of dry .weather the silo enables them to keep their stock in good con-. dition, and that lambing can t...

OUR EUCLAYPTUS INDUSTRY. Present and Prospective. ITS UNAPPRECIATED VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

OUR EUCLAYPTUS IN DUSTRY. Present and Prospective. ITS UNAPPRECIATED VALUE. Seeing, according to medical au I thorny, that Iuiclayptus oil lias proved such a valuable preventative against Meningitis and considering its many other pronounced med icinal advantages, it is surprising how little its value seenvs to be ap preciated and how sparingly it is used in the average household. Here in the district of Korong Vale is a large tract of country admirably suited to the production of the very finest cxtract of thceuclayptus plant, yet through the comparative paucity of demand, the industry is held within a circumscribed area of ex pansion. The trouble has been ac centuated sincc the outbreak of war because Germany, as our largest customer, lias, of course, been cut off. It is understood thai the Ger mans utilised the oil largely in the manufacture of explosives and the treatment of ores—departments of science in which they have made marked advancement—a fact which makes us appear in a m...

Publio Notioos. WE DO NOT HUSTLE OVER FILLINCS Treating a tooth that has to be filled is an operation demanding great care and patience. Unless the cavity is thoroughly cleansed, all the decayed dentine removed, the chances are that it will ^abscess and be lost for ever. Tooth treatment takes time. Until we are absolutely certain that the cavity is "right," we do not begin filling. Then our expert knowledge operates.

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Northern District Standard — 7 October 1915

CORRESPONDENCE. TO TII K KlilTOn, Sir, The mild but candid advice contained in your article of last week, re the selling of wheat for forward delivery, is most.appropriate and opportune, That such a princi ple is inimical to the interests of the wheat-growers, cannot be disputed but through the deplorable lack of proper organization among the primary producers, wheat growers are no doubt singled out as being the easiest of prey for spoliation. However, in the absence of that unity which should be expected amongst farmers, the ventilation of | the subject, through the medium of ) the Press, will do much good, and will perhaps, bring to the farmer greater pecuniary advantage which lie is this, Above all other years, justly entitled to. Now, Mr. Editor, to gauge what the price of wheat will be at the approaching harvest must be admitted difficult, yet it would appear only logical were farmers to discard all the "fanciful theories effects" and "influences" that we hear of, and take the ...
