NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

NOTES. High prices for horses is turning the rural mind more and more to the possibilities of the motor as a farm implement. Trials so far. with motor power for ploughing and other farm work in this country, has so far had mix ed results; but in the main points to success in time. Importations are being made/ we hear of a motor which is said to be doing good w<5rk in England on the farm. It is a 20-h.p., and only weighs 35 cwt. A gentleman interested in farming property in this. State, recently saw a trial of one of" tliese agricultural motors in England, and was so satis fied that a machine is now on the way out here. It will be worked in the Young dis trict, and its progress will be watch ed witn keen interest. At the trial mentioned, the ground Avas very wet, but the motor faced it all right, al though the ploughs could not work the ground, which is promising. As things are, a lot of country last year was turned up with bullocks, which is rather going back a year or tw...

POTATOES. A Crop for Orchardists. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

POTATOES. , A Crop for Orchardists. Comparatively few orehardists ;.gr9W.-pptatoes as a money crop, al though they could do so with advan tage, as 110 extra implements are necessary. The same ploughs, horses, and men could just as easily grow potatoes as fruit, and if the "Irish 'Blight'* comes along the spray pump and familiar Bordeaux mixture is on hand as a preventative. Possibly, the chief reason has been the uncertainty .of sufficient moisture, and the diffi culty and expense of obtaining seed. "Now is a favourable time to work tip a stock of good seed. The best varieties are undoubtedly the Red Ruby and the Satisfaction; whilst the ?Coronation is the best blueskin va riety. If only a. few cwt., or say, half -a ton, was sown now, between .young trees with fertiliser, a few tons of good seed could be produced for spring .planting. The seed should be pur chased at once, and soaked for two "hours in formalin. '??.Mix well, 8 fluid ounces (about "half a pint) of commercial formalin...

CROPPING BETWEEN TREES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

CROPPING BETWEEN TREES. Broadcast crops should not be .sown between fruit trees, unless with the intention of turniiig them under for green manure. Certain drilled crops can, however, be sown between young trees, provided they are prop erly manured, cultivated, and rotated. It should be remembered that the .soil represents the fruit-growers' .capital, a reserve store of plant food for the future fruit crops. A set tler with limited capital may have to ? draw on. this reserve store, but he ' rS'Kotfld in all" cases pay back '-with interest by systematic manuring. Tor example, Swede turnips may now *be sown on cleaned land, and will :prove profitable if fed with fertiliser. JL cwt. "of "superphosphate and one of bonedust per acre is as good a mix ture as any, as the bonedust not utilised by the Swedes will come in for the fruit trees. On soils poor in .potash, or between passions, a bet ter mixture is 2 cwt. superphos phate, and % cwt. of sulphate of pot .ash, costing about 17s per ae...

THE FATE OF THE PODDY. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

THJEI FATE OF THE PODDY. The poddy always has been a strong object of sympathy about the dairy farm. If any members of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals So ciety are ever induced to go prospect ing about the dairies for objects of interest they will assuredly alight on the poddy. His troubles begin early. If he escapes the knock on the head when he presents himself on the first morning after his arrival he is regarded as one who was born under a lucky star, as the poddy is not wanted these times. Should he escape this fate, others less friendly might happen, for the poddy does not get much sympathy anywhere. If he is not well fed, lie is pretty sure to fall a victim to scours, and his end comes sooner or later, in a way that evokes pity. Right at the beginning he is about the only animal on earth which is denied its mother's milk. If he is a promising sort of poddy, and has an aristocratic parentage, he may get a share of his mother's milk for a week or two, but after that his, f...

WHERE THE REGULATIONS ARE WEAK. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

WHERE THE REGULATIONS ARE WEAK. There are weak spots in the regu lations devised to control the export of butter. For the most part, the industry is accepting the system of control' with equanimity-on the ground that it cannot do much harm, and may do good. The charge of one farthing per box is not only unfair, but it is absolutely paltry. On the whole output of the State it will not amount to much over £1000, and it will entail a lot of bookkeeping and work in collecting. Every time an agent goes along with a consignment he will be obliged to take with him a few pence or a few shillings, accord ing to the extent of the consignment. This charge might very well have been left out of the regulations, even if it were imposed in some other way, on the ground that it was a return for services rendered. But a much more iniquitous regulation is the one which imposes the claim of half a pound overweight in each box to make up for any loss that might result through the escape of moisture. An...

AGENTS' REPORTS. Messrs. Winclicombe, Carson and Co., .Ltd., report: Wheat. - The market remains steady, no change being reported from London, and 3/4% to 3/5 per bushel may be regarded as the market quo tation. Large quantities of bleached wheat continue to arrive, the market for this description being very dull at from 2/11 to 3/1 per bushel. Oats.-Prices are fairly well main tained, best Algerians for milling pur poses selling at 2/4 to 2/5, and ordi nary feed from 1/0 to 2/2 per bushel. Maize.-Owing to the enormous quantity of Queensland maize which has come forward during tne past week, the market has collapsed; to day it is impossible7 to get more than 2/6 for the choicest samples of cold climate maize, and there is very little prospect of improvement, more esjie cially in view of the fact that new maize may be expected to arrive free ly within' the next fortnight.

General Produce. RAILWAY YARDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

General Produce. RAILWAY YARDS. The lack of animation that has characterised *the auction sales at the Eaihvay Goods Shed, Redfern, still continues, and yesterday's sales were devoid of any other notable feature. There was only a small muster of buyers, and they showed little dis position to operate. Agents com plain of what they regard as shabby treatment by some of the consignors of produce, whom they accuse of "packing" the trucks, that is, putting in the inaccessible parts of the load, where the sampler cannot get at it, weather-damaged and comparatively worthless bags of chaff, wheat, etc. If the outside bags pass the sampler, and a sale is effected, it is quickly "cried off" when the rubbish in the centre comes to be handled. This is a silly game for anyone to play, and the sender in the end suffers for his folly. Certainly the agent is not willing to bear the loss. A buyer once deceived in, this way is well on his guard next time, and the sender's name is remembered as one wh...

BLOWFLY PEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

BLOWFLY PEST. W. H. Crouch, Coiidobolin, writes: -.'?Dear Sir,-Much has been written lately on the blowfly pest, more par ticularly on tiie damage it does to both sheep aiul wool. We have been doing our best to breed the blowfly for some years in the process of poisoning rabbits, allowing dead ani mals to remain unburnt, and as a natural consequence we are reaping' the harvest of neglect. "A method, easy, inexpensive, and safe, 1 have tried on a small scale,, and proved successful, is the follow ing:-J3oil in, say, 3 gallons water,. . 31b. arsenic, 01b. washing soda, 31b, sugar,; afterwards adding two or three gallons water.

MID-AIR COLT BREAKING. A Novel System. There are many' systems, good and bad, of eolt breaking-so many, in deed, that there would seem little ?room for improvement. or novelty.

BOOMING IN NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

BOOMING IN NEW ZEALAND. Encouraged by fat cheques the chief dairy districts of New Zealand are making preparations for an unprece dented expansion of the industry. The step must be thoroughly justified,» as farmers a,re not given to rushing at a barred gate. Indeed, they might with advantage do a little bit more of the rushing business. The result of this impetus in the Dominion is that there is a very active demand for good stock, which is a fact that should not be lost sight of by the breeders here who are looking for a market for choice lots. It would be a rather bad speculation to offer them inferior stuff, as they are- too well aware of the benefit- of buying only the best. The work of preparing land in New Zealand for dairying is a much more difficult problem than it is for the average N.S.W. settler, as it is im perative there to lay down suitable grasses, whereas'in parts of this State the settler can get to work on the natural grasses, increasing his areas of hand-sown as t...

Dairying. A GIGANTIC TURNOVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

Dairying. A GIGANTIC TURNOVER. What an enormous sum the dairy ing industry must be worth annually to Australasia? It would be almost impossible to secure data which could be regarded as accurate, for such a large proportion of the produce is locally consumed. The figures relat ing to export are easily secured, and these in themselves are almost in credible. The Victorians calculate that they sent away last year butter worth 2'/a millions sterling, but New Zealand goes half a million better. New South Wales is right on to the tail of the southern State, while Queeiislanders calculate their output at a round million. All this totted up sails very close to £10,000,000 an nually for dairy produce sent abroad, most of which, of course, goes to Tooley-street. But these figures do not fully represent the value of the industry to Australasia. There is not only the butter consumed by the masses, but there are the supplies of whole milk and cream and cheese to be added. These articles make up...

RABBITS ON CROWN LANDS. (To the Editor "The Land.") [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 24 February 1911

RABBITS ON CROWN LANDS. (To the Editor "Th/e Land.") The destruction ox rabbits on all Crown lands, t.s.r.'s, etc., in this State, is a matter that concerns all men on the land, large or small hold ers, and whether badly infested or not. In the several P.P. Acts, there is not any provision made for the destruction of the pest on Crown lands, and it is most unfair and un just to adjoining holders, who may be adopting all reasonable means to keep their country clean, to be con tinuously stocked up with rabbits from those lands, and compelled by law to destroy them, as well as their own, or be proceeded against for not doing so. Some years ago, several of the pas tures protection boards recognised how unfair the P.P. Act was in this respect, and one board in particular, to assist and encourage holders; treat ed all badly infested Crown lands in their district, with such good results that the board were in a position to say, that there were fewer rabbits on those lands, than on most of ...
