A General Farm. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 31 March 1914

A General Farm. There has never been much doubt cast on the future of fruit growing on thie Areia, and most people seem satisfied nowadays that dairying will also be a sucoess. Grave doubts are, however, expressed as to whe ther or not an ordinary general farmer will be able to " make a do of it" under irrigation. A visit was recently paid to Mr. P. Gersbach's farm (No. 330), and it can safely be said that his block is a direct refutation of the opinion that general farming cannot be successfully carried on at Yanco and Mirrool. Mr. Gersbach's block is an excellent one, but there is un doubtedly a lot of soil on the Area-deep, friable loam-at least equal to his. He took up his holding (which is 80 acres in extent) about 14 months ago. The whole of the block was heavily tim bered with pine and box, and Mr. Gers bach was limited in his operations to a very great extent by lack of adequate capital, but at the same time he has suc ceeded in getting 30 acres cleared while he has been in ...

Lucerne Growing on Stiff Soil. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 31 March 1914

Lucerne Growing on Stiff Soil. Lucerne growers, on parts of the Area where there is a persistent clay band a few inches in depth between the surface soil and the deep open subsoil, find consider able difficulty in getting the luoerne roots to penetrate the band of clay. Some even go so far as to say that the roots will not go down. Recent inquiries made at the Experi ment Farm do not, however, confirm this supposition, as the lucerne at the farm has undoubtedly gone through the sub soil. Mr. T. D. Williams states that the same thing applies at his place. The dif ficulty to be overcome by settlers on lands of this character is that of getting the water to penetrate the clay. There is no doubt that a watering of a couple of in ches will not do so. On the other hand there is every reason to believe that a heavy flooding at certain times of the year, particularly late in the autumn, when the heat of the sun has to a ver^ great extent gone, would be successful in the direction indicated....

Tobacco Growers Position. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 31 March 1914

Tobacco Growers Position. One of the matters most discussed on the Area is the question as to whether there will be any difficulty in finding a ready market for locally grown tobacco. Some months ago a notification was pub lished in the daily press under the au thority of one of the big tobacco manu facturing firms to the effect that there was very little possibility of a market be ing found for inferior leaf; in fact, the growers in the Tamworth district were advised not to plant extensively this sea son. The same notice was published in the Victorian press, and, commenting on the position that has arisen, the Victorian tobacco expert, according to a recent re port in the daily papers, says that the advice of the manufacturers to the grow ers not to increase their areas does not apply to the southern State. It appears that in New South Wales the amount of plug tobacco grown is out of all propor tion to the quantities of the finer grades but at the same time there is apparently an e...

ANNUAL MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 31 March 1914

ANNUAL MEETINGS. It has been said by some philosopher that an English speaking community's prosperity may be gauged by the sport ing activities of the residents. Judged by this standard, recent happenings seem to show that the Irrigation Area is a parti cularly flavored locality, as in this issue we have to chronicle the annual meetings of no less than four sporting bodies. The most gratifying feature about the life of the various clubs is that they are not confined to the officials. Settlers and townspeople have already taken a large interest in their welfare, and as time goes on it is confidently hoped that the strength of these bodies will be greatly increased as other residents begin to have leisure to devote to the various forms of recreation. Unfortunately, space prevents us from doing more than referring to the financial positions of the clubs and giving a list of the office-bearers for the ensuing year. The Leeton Race Club. The financial report for the year 1913 showed a cr...

Dairying Instructions for April. FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

Dairying Instructions for April. FEEDING. Lucerne.-Settlers by this time are well aware that much better results can be obtained by hand feeding lucerne than by grazing it off; This matter has been referred to in the ' Record" many times. It is noted, however, that recent experi ments in the United States have proved that 50 per cent.- better results have been given there on lucerne hand fed than on the same lucerne grazed off. During the month of April lucerne will begin to go off, and its growth during the winter months will hardly be sufficient ; to warrant" the running of the mower over it. From the beginning of May, while the weather is fine and the ground hard, stock may be grazed without injury to1, the lucerne. This, of course, would be cheaper at this particular time of the year than hand feedijig, owing to the slow growth of the plant. If rain falls, of course the stock should be immediately removed until the ground is in a fit con dition to carry it again without the soil...

Instruction to Settlers. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

Instruction to Settlers. Mr. McEachern has supplied the follow ing information which is intended for the use of settlers during the month of April: Lucerne. Autumn Planting.-All settlers on the Area intending to plant lucerne are now busy preparing the land, as this month is the most suitable for so doing. As a matter of fact, as pointed out in a pre vious article, the land which it is intend ed to seed should, ere this, have been ploughed and reduced to a fine tilth. If not done already, no time should be lost in getting this important work in hand. It is also important that the grading and other preparation of the land should be as nearly perfect as possible. Too much stress cannot be laid upon this point. Lucerne will not stand flooding; in fact, if water lies on it for any length of time during the hot weather it will, in all probability, scald and die. Once the land is sown it is almost impossible, with out carting soil from some adjoining land at great expense, to fill up depr...

PROFIT IN DAIRY FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

PROFIT IN DAIRY FARMING. In the February "Agricultural Gazette" attention was drawn to the case of Mr. Fowler, of Rawdon Island, Hastings River, who has a farm of 80 acres. For the year ending 30th June last his profit was £441, of which £120 represented his income from pigs. The year in question showed a considerable falling off from the previous year, when his. actual profit was £547, the falling off being due to the exceptionally wet winter and the short-, age of feed. Mr. Fowler's stock consisted of 36 cows in milk and four breeding sows, the work of. the farm being done entirely by himself. These figures are evidence of what can be done by hard work on a small dairy farm. A lot is said from, time to time as to the. possibility of men successfully dairying on small holdings.

Pigs and Profits. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

Pigs and Profits. While in Victoria recently, among other subjects discussed, the question of pigs and the profit on pigs naturally came up. It is generally considered over there that feeding pigs on lucerne is one of the most profitable ways of turning the king of fodder crops into sovereigns. Mr. W. T. Stover, the Expert on the Shep parton Settlement, has had a lot of Cali fornian experience which he finds no dif ficulty in applying, to Goulburn Valley conditions. The same thing should ap ply here. In Mr. Stover's opinion, pigs here are too much neglected altogether; in California they are kept on lucerne part of the year, and then taken into the barley to top off. When asked the ques tion, he admitted that he had never really estimated the number of pigs per acre which could be treated this way, but he considered that without doubt there was an absolute fortune in it if the idea was properly handled. He knew this from results obtained in California. Although it was practicable to...

FARM No. 21, GRIFFITH—MR. H. A. CRASE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

FARM No. 21, GRIFFITH-MR. H. A'. CRASE. Mr. Crase occupies half of a 50-acre block. When he took it up on the 16th December, 1912, it was very heavily tim bered; he has, however, cleared the whole of it, and has had it all under crop of some kind. It will be seen, therefore, that he has made use of every flying moment. At the present time he has five acres under onions, and they are looking very well indeed. Their size is not extraordin ary, but they are very firm and sound. Mr. Crase has also tried with satisfac tory results the experiment of growing sor ghum and other fodder crops for sale to his neighbors who are going in for dairy ing. At the present time he has some Japanese and Russian millet coming into ear, and it promises to give him a very nice return indeed. The coming winter he anticipates being able to put in 10 acres which he cropped for hay last sea of his holding with fruit trees. The 10 acres which he cropped for hap last sea son has now been ploughed up again, and ...

CONTAGIOUS MAMMITIS AND CONTAGIOUS ABORTION. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

CONTAGIOUS MAMMITIS AND CONTAGIOUS ABORTION. Up to the present time there have been no cases diagnosed on the Areas of either of these diseases, which have worked such havoc on both the NoiHh and South Coasts, particularly amongst the heaviest milkers. The Manager is most anxious that no effort should be spared to keep out these and other scourges which afflict dairy herds in different parts of New South Wales, and in this connec tion stringent regulations are in course of preparation. In the meantime, set tlers are advised to be particularly careful in connection with the importation of any milking cows or bulls. Once - these dis eases obtain a strong hold they are hard to deal with, but with proper care there need be little fear of their arriving here. Heifers may be brought from almost any part of the State without much danger, but with cows the case is quite different. A microscopic examination is necessary to detect the presence of either of the dis eases referred to, as they g...

BUILDINGS ERECTED FOR SETTLERS BY CONTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 14 April 1914

BUILDINGS ERECTED FOR SET TLERS BY CONTRACT. A number of settlers are taking ad vantage of a recent decision of the Com missioner to debit to their "terms" ac count the cost of approved buildings erect ed for them by private contract. A little difficulty has, however, arisen in connec tion with the making of payments in con nection with sixchv;.^^)^^'ttcrs to settlers' contractors. Iu order that the value of the work done may be properly checked, it is necessary that vouchers or receipts for all materials, & c., used should be sub mitted to the Commissioner's office. It frequentty happens that a contractor may be erecting a building partly with mate rials supplied by the Commissioner on terms, and partly with material obtained from outside sources. Unless a very clo^ check is kept, mistakes are very likely to arise in connection vit.a matters of the kind. The Manager would be glad if set tlers interested will give him all the as sistance they can by making a point of filing ...
