QUESTION TIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Central Queensland Herald — 9 January 1930
QUESTION TIME. B.C. asks : We have had two cases of milk fever this year. The cows get nothing but grass. Is there any way of avoiding milk fever ? Answer : Allow the mother to nurse the calf for at least a week from birth. If you do not prefer this do not Etrip the cow clean when milking h«r foe a few days affcsr calving. To empty the udder of a large quantity of warm milk may induce a chill. Cows should be dry for at least six weeks before calving. Put susceptible animals on poor grazing before calving and feed something light and laxative. Ten grains of potassium iodide given daily for two weeks before calving will pro bably be found helpful in keeping a susceptible animal free from the dis ease. ' COMET ' says : Pigs are thrift less and pot-bellied. Sometimes they scour and vomit and their coats a« harsh and lifeless looking. The pigs eat well, but do not put on weight. Answer : You should treat the pigs for worms. Make up the following, ?which is a dose for a 100 lb. pig : Two ...

Much has been said in these columns from time to time about herd testing, and it lias Iwen pointed out that tlw application of such is one of the lnost needed advances in the dairying iudus try. Despite the fact that there is a Uov eminent herd testing scheme, which makes it vary easy for dairymen to sub mit their ''.erds to test, they have not given this scheme the support one would expect. Whatever the causes, we neod not discuss them here, but there arc, no doubt, many dairymen, who, although perhaps not prepared to have thsir herds tested under any scheme, would be quite willing to apply the Uabcoek test lo their own herds privately, if they knew how. It appears that a personal know ledge of herd testing would do more than anything else in this respect. We have mentioned somewhere pre viously that it is only a matter of...
