PIGS ON LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

PIGS ON LUCERNE. All interesting study of the use of lu cerne for pork production has recently been made by the New Mexico Expe riment Station, and is reported in Bul letin No. 90. Briefly the conclusions are that lucerne is a too one-sided ra tion for pigs, unless it is supplemented with grain or skim milk. Mature pigs are maintained nicely on lucerne alone, but pigs do not thrive as they ought. The largest gains were made when pigs had lucerne, skim milk and grain. This is as one might expect, the milk being an ideal ration in itself for a growing pig, and tlie grain supplementing it while the lucerne made tho bulk and ali'orded a good deal of the- protein of t.lio ration. flood results, however, were secured when only lucerne and a small ration of grain were fed. Calculations showed that the gain resulting from the lu eerno eaten was about 782 lb. per acre. Figuring live pork at 7 oents (3%d.) per lb., this would be^ equivalent to a return of o4.7 \ dollars (£11/7/9% roughly) per...

TOO MUCH FOR HIM. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

TOO MUCH FOB HIM. As a ploughman was about to cycle through a certain village another man on a motor-cycle came up. "What's the meaning o' a' they notices stuck up outside the toons, noo?" queried the ploughman. "That/' replied the motorist, "means you've got to pass through the village at ten miles an hour."

THINNING FRUIT ON TREES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

THINNING FRUIT ON TREES. The Toronto "Globe'' of recent date has an articlo entitled "Bigger ifieids by Thinning Peaches," giving the re sult of aii experiment conducted in the .Niagara district 011 fifteen St. John trees. The trees were of average sizo, healthy, nine years of age, and iieaded and pruned rather high. The "\keviotyi year they had borne no fruit at ail the first time they had ever failed and now they were heavily laden. These trees were chosen because they gave a chance to observe the greatesc extremes. The thinning was done ou 25th and 27th June. The result of the experiment was that the unthinned trees produced 32% lb. of firsts, lS)4Vi lb. of seconds, and 328 lb. of culls-in all 6429 peaches, having a total value of 31/. The trees thinned from lin. to 3 in., or just so that two ripe peaches would not touch each other, as nearly as could be judged in the early part of the season, gave the highest gross re turns, producing 201^2 lb. of firsts, 402% lb. of seconds, an...

MELBOURNE LETTER [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

MELBOURNE LETTER (From our SpsoisS Correspondent.) Tho views which the cable tells uk have been expressed by the Earl of Selbourne as to the sort of war news supplied are very much to the point, j According to the message, the Karl ! said that the Government and thop ress J were to blame for giving too favorable 1 a color to the war news. If those who ' were responsible understood the cliarac- I teristics of the race they would mini- j mise the good news, and feature the I bad. The need for something that will bring the people of this country to a ! more, adequate realisation of just what ; we are up against has been very much I in evidence during the past week. The chief autumn racing fixture has been on { and the festivities connected therewith have held sway. 1'robably the attend ances were not so good as former ! /ears. The drought would account for that, but there was each day a large crowd of apparently care-free pleasure seekers frivoling away their time and providing the whe...

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

OF RURAL INTEREST i (By "Busticus.") Already the problem'of what is to bo done to furnish suitable employment for -soldiers, at the termination of the war is exercising the nniicl.s of people i in England; Ft is interesting to note .the direction in which its consideration is leading. There would appear to be possibilities of an awakening to the great field for employment that lies in the development of rural Australia. There is also the reuHv.ition tiT:\t it is tlia vast eopty spaces in the outlying portions of the Empire, and particular-. i ly Australia, that will be the chief ele ment of danger in future. Earl Gray is at the forefront of a movement that commissioned Mr H.E. Eastou, secretary of the British Immigration League to inquire into the matter. Mr. Easton says that, in Western Australia Earl Grey has been offered 100,000 acres of fiu'it land, in proximity to the railway, at £- an acre, purchase money not to be paid for twenty years. The owner further offers to advance £50...

THE CANADIAN APPLE CROP. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

THE CANADIAN APPLE CROP. Although the iinctst apples in the world are grown in Canada, it is fre quently difficult to obtain them there, and Canadians have often to content themselves with those imported from the United States. This is due to the fact that Europe, appreciating the qual ity and flavor of Canadian apples,'im ports them in vary large quantities. The exporfci of Canadian apples to the United Kingdom have recently total ! led about 1,500,000 barrels per annum, entire ship cargoes Itching confined to '.'lis one -product. In addition, 75 ' per cent of the apples evaporated in Canada are exported to Germany. Aus tria. Hungary, and other European countries. Naturally the, war has. con siderably interfered with this section of the Canadian trade, and the Depart-, ment of Trade and Commerce at Ot tawa has taken upon itself the outy of assisting the growers and exporters in the development of new markets. A considerable amount of attention is being devoted to that at their own ...

A CLOVER FOR DAIRYMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

CLOVER FOR DAIRYMEN. Suecess has been achieved with ber seem or Egyptian clover in South Aus tralia, where it was introduced by Pro fessor Perkins. Beraeem i3 usually re ferred to as an irrigation crop, but it has done well this year at Grafton Ex periment Farm (N.S.W.) on red vol canic upland soil, aud with a compara tively light rainfall. Tho experiment alist reports that for a supply of win ter forago this clover, in combination with cereals, should be very valuable, and when grazed off two or three times it should produco a very high yield of nutritious fodder. Tho chief points in favor of its more extended cultivation, he states, aro the high yields of green stuff obtainable, four or five cuts may be made in a season, yielding. five to eight tons per cut; it is more drought resistant than any clover so far tried at Grafton Farm; it is not killed by light frosts; it is a soil-renovating crop of high order, being a legume, and en riching tho soil by the fixation of nit rogen; whe...

A PROFITABLE EXAMPLE OF MANURING FOR GREEN FEED. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

A PROFITABLE EXAMPLE OF MANURING FOR GREEN FEED. In dairying and even in general farming districts the cultivation of aome cropa for green feed is considered advisable. In many eases cereal crops sown chiefly for grain (or hay) are made use of towards the end of winter or in the early spring by being fed off by stock. Such practice is often of great importance to the farmer for it gives him a supply of good feed when grass may be very scarce. The value of this feed should not be overlooked, and naturally the more feed available the more stock can bone fit by it. Whother the crop is grown only for green feed or whether it is subse quently to be allowed to grow to ear and bo cut for hay or harvested for grain, the use of suitable manures will invariably prove highly satisfactory and moat profitable. In order to try the effect of a top dressing of nitrato of soda, an experi ment was carried out by Mr. George Langley, manager of Sir William Mc Millan's farm, at Albion Park, N.S.W. "Thew...

FEED AND MILK ODORS [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

FEED AND MILK ODORS There is some relation between thv. feed and ttie milk. If onions are fid to a. cow, it is expected that the milK will have t-lie odor and flavor of onions. Tne same is true of turnips, but in a less decree. If, however, the turnips or cabbage are led m moderate quan tities tiiitctly alter milking, no bad result- is noticed, Because in this case tii0 system iiaa hud time to absorb the malodorous material. tillage is as~ strong m odor as onions, and yet a cow can consume a large quantity or even the rankest adage, and produce milk without a trace of silage odor. Yet the .silage odor is very penetrating. It hangs to the hair of the cow, and the garments of the milker; it fills tno air of the byre. When fed just be fore milking, and when the m-lKing ia done without washing the hands, the milk is sure to he tainted. Milk kept m the building where silage is, easily absorbs the odor. These odors that enter milk alter it is drawn from the cow ca.ii be largely removed by...

PIG ITEMS. DISARMING THE BOAR. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

PIG ITEMS. DISAKM1NG THE BOAR, The tusks of a boar ought to be kept short. This not only makes him less I a menace to the other animals, but many pig-raisers believe him less fierce and self-confident. An inch and a halt' in length is about the limit to which the lower tusks should be allowed to grow. This moans taking them off once every six months. Tho quickest and one 01 the commonest ways of dis posing of thom is to knock them off with cold chisel and hammer. The trouble with this method is that it is likely to splinter the bone around the socket of the tusk, and I have even known the jaw-bone to be broken. A much better way is to break the tusk olf with long horse nippers or with blacksmith's pincers; or the tusk can be nicked deeply on both sides with a throe-cornered file, after which it can be knocked off with greater safety, though it is still bettor to uso pincers. The stub can be smoothed down with n few. strokes of a flat file. 'i'o hold him for this or any other operati...

MILK IS A FOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 19 March 1915

MILK IS A FOOD. The act of milking is the prepara tion of a finished food product. How many milkers realise thiB The stable ig a laboratory in. which is prepared tho most useful of all food products. If this labortory its dirty and poorly you lilated; if the cow and the milker arc unclean; if in the operation of milking dirt gets into the milk, the result is a product injured as a food. Pen* men would pick up a piece of bread from the floor and eat it with, any relish, yet some would permit the dirt from the cow and the hands of the milker to enter the mink and think nothing of it. This dirt in the milk has much more significance to-day than it^ had a few years ago. Tho science Ox pre\ ontivo medicine has developed wonderfully since we knew something' about bacteria. It has been demon strated many times that the intestinal diseases of infants fed on eow'a milk come largely from the milk.
