PIG INDUSTRY IN DENMARK. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

INDUSTRY IN DENMARK. it is a noteworthy fact that, while the pig statistics of every other coun try of importance in the world show a continued decline in number, there is an increase in Denmark. It is due, too, to the fact that the Danes have been sending increased supplies of bacon to Kngland this year that the London market has yielded lower prices for Australian consignments than were obtained last season. In view of this, the following particulars of the Danish farmers' methods of handling their pigs, as related by a correspondent of the "Stockbreeder''' (London), have a special interest: "While I. was visiting a farm, good weanors were .purchased at from 20/ to 25/. It was tlio practice to keop for brooding purposes all sows which were considered suitable. These were sold just before pigging, and often the pro geny purchased' back again as weaners. 1 saw good young sows, which would weigh about 200 lb., sold for from £7 to £9. This was obviously better busi ness than selling a...

AUSTRALIAN WHEAT VALUES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

AUSTRALIAN WHEAT VALUES. | The normal wheat production of Aus tralia is approximately 100,000,000 bushels, with an avorago price of 3/G per bushel, the total value of the crop is, in round numbers, £17,000,00u. livery extra shilling per bushel received for wheat means an extra £5,000.000 to the Commonwealth. The London parity for wheat is at present about of per bushels f.o.b. Australian ports, and it is very imlikc*l3' that the price v-ill drop below this figure during the currency of the war. Indeed, as has been shown above, the tendency rather .<T,i:ki be for the wheat to rise beyond this evon after the restoration of peace. A normal harvest would, under these, circumstances, bring in at least /'l^.OOO.OOO, whilst a good harvest in 1.91 o over the extended acreage should exceed . £30,000,000. The effect of such bountiful primary production on trade and manufactures would bo im mense, and would aid in counteracting the inevitable depression of trade which economists ant...

RINGWORM IN CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

RINGWORM IN CATTLE. Xingworm is a skin diseaso most com monly found in cattlo; but it may occur in horses, fugs, and also in the human family. It is named, doubtless, from the circular shapes of tho patches in the affected part. They are irregular in shape, and vary from half au inch to some inches. Tiic "iair from the parts affected has disappeared,, and tho skin is thickened and scaly, it ia-'com moii enough on the heads and necks of calves that havo been confined. The skin is affected frequently round the eyes. It is a contagious affection. It is troublesome on account of the unrest caused by the itching which is more or less present, and the extent to which its presenco renders the animals un sightly. Being contagious, it is well to take steps to combat it. It is not, however, readily transmitted from one species of animal to another. There are several methods of treatment; but any method that may be adopted will givo better results if the affected parts are well soaked with soa...

SOIL FERTILITY AND CULTIVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

SOIL FERTILITY AND CULTIVA TION. "If vain and fruitless is the yearly toil, Wb ought to blamo the eulture-not the soil." Fertility may be abundant in the soil and yet bo not available for the plants. Fertility 'is 'often .bound Tjp._ lirmly in hard clods, which tho'roots of growing crops cannot enter, and so re cover the plant food that may be with in easy reach. Soils are formed by the disintegration of rocks, and by the de velopment of fertilising elements inci dent to the growth and decay of vege tation. Fertility has to be developed in various ways. Alternate rain and sunshine, the h^at of summer, and the frosts of winter, ploughing and harrow ing tho soil, working it over and over again, in connection with the applica tion of stable manuro and commercial | fertilisers, arc all effectual means of developing availablo fertility. We know now, thanks to tho discoveries in chemical science, that it rests with the individual to prevent the impoverish lnent of tho soil-similar to what...

HOW TO MAKE A MEAT SAFE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

HOW TO MAKE A F3EAT SAFE. A capital meat safe can easily bo mado at liome at very littlo coat. A safe is always usoful, winter and sum-: mer, though in summer time it is also an absolute necessity. If an empty wooden box is not at hand, one can be purchased at the f*ro car's for a'copper or two. One about£^ sixteen inches square would do nicely. \ for ordinary purposes; if it has a lid so niueh the better. Turn the bos BO that the top comes at the front aide; the lid thus forms the door of the meat safe. On each of the four sides of the box mark out a square, leaving a good margin of wood. Out or saw the square ( of wood out; this may be done with a / small saw. Buy some perforated zinc / at the ironmonger's; it can be bought j iu sheets. Have it cut the right size, v. and tuck a piece on each side where I .the wood had been cut out. Secure the door on by two hinges, and knock a : nail with a brass head on the door to , act as a handle. Instead of the zinc, ) very strong butter musl...

CARE OF FARM MACHINERY. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

CARE OF FARM MACHINERY. There arc many things which may be said about the care of farm machinery, a great many of which aro seldom ob served by the operator, writes E. It. Gross, of the Colorado Agricultural Col lege. Only a few of the most essential will be mentioned here. Oil is cheaper than repairs, but too much oil is often detrimental, it runs off the bearings and collects dirt over the parts to which it spreads through capillary and the motion of tho machine. Here it may cause excessivo wear, thon the lubricant becomes a hindrance instead of a help. TOO MUCH GREASE. Very slow-running bearings exposed to an oxcess of dirt and dust will some times wear as well or better without grease. ? Tho grease only serves as a moans of collecting grit ?nd holding it in the bearings, i'or example, tho fifth wheel of a buggy or the fore bolster of a waggon need no greasing. If never greased they will uot be likely to squeak, and will show less wear than with grease. Wooden parts of all machin...

SHEEP AND CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

SHEEP AND CATTLE. A test was made at Cockle Park, .Northumberland, of the relative profits to be gained by grazing sheep alone, or grazing sheep and cattle mixed. The experiment seems to have ended cor. clusivcly in favor' of mixed grazing. The live-weight gain of the sheep per acre was 115 lb., and of cattle and sheep per acre 21U lb. The difference in money would be less marked, as mutton brings a higher price per pound than beef; but still there is a substan tial margin in favor of mixed grazing. The official report states that when the pasture is grazed . with sheep only, rough and beuty herbage is developed, owing to the sheep grazing the finer grasses only, and these very closely. The cattle, on the other hand, are more even mowers, and do not graze so closely. The replacing of halt the number of sheep with the equivalent of cattle-one to five or six sheep-is thus more profitable than grazing sheep alone, and it helps the pasture and pro vides the sheep with more of their fav ...

PROFITABLENESS OF OLD COWS [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

PROFITABLENESS OF OLD COWS If a cow has been rightly fed all of her life she will bo a good cow when she becomes old. -A cow that has been overfed for years will havo becorno "burned out" by the timo sho is ten or twelve years of age. The cow that has never been fed to bring her up to her highest capacity for milk .giv ing will have fixed her habits of milk production at a low point and will not be valuable as an old cow. She will therefore have to be disposed of to the butcher several years before she would otherwise have gone out to service. There are a large number of old cows that will increase their capacity for milk-giving if fed on a properly bal anced ration and with a largo amount of succulent food the year round. This' is what develops the capacity of the cow. A great many cows arc never fed with the idea of getting out of them the greatest amount of miik pos siblo each year, with due regard to tho health of the cows. If, however, the old cows were fed with this idea in mi...

SUPERPHOSPHATE OF LIME. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

SUPERPHOSPHATE OF LIME. Soineono has made the remark that the three virtues of plant fertility are nitrogen, potash, and phosphoric acid, and that the greatest of these is phos-' phoric acid. Certainly it may be said that phosphate of lime is the most vital constituent in the formation and nourishment of life in both animals and plants. "The significance and import ance of phosphate in the vital process is obvious, as this ingredient is never failing in all the organised structures of the body," wrote Liebig. "No phos phate, no life," is a phrase which sums up its absolutely essential character. And if 'phosphate of lime is necessary for mankind and animals, it is equally so for plants, from which animals draw their supplies. ' 'No seed suitable to become food for man or animals can be found in any plant without the presence and co-operation of phosphate of lime; a field in which phosphate of lime is absent is totally incapable of producing nourishment," and again, quoting from Lieb...

SCIENCE IN ANIMAL BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

SCIENCE IN ANIMAL BREEDING. (By Frank A. Hayes/ in ..Hoard' Dairyman.") In the days of our forefathers, stock- < breeding was not a science, but was | carried on without any knowledge of the great scientific principles that un derlie this great iield of activity. Tho success of the early, breeders, cannot but bo regarded as remarkable when wc-. consider the great handicap under which they worked. Animal breeding is not only a science but an art as well. In other words, in order to be successful, a breeder must possess cer tain natural gifts that not all man kind possess, and he must be a student. It is only during the present century that mankind has begun to acquire accurato knowledge of the operation of some of the laws of animal breeding. Since tho discovery of 1900 of Mendel's work in crossing planes, tho bcienco of genetics has made rapid strides, and evidences of the true behaviour of ani mal characters arc beginning to accu mulate. Any facts bearing upon this impor...

BREEDING GOOD CART HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Powlett Express and Victorian State Coalfields Advertiser — 26 March 1915

BREEDING GOOD CART HORSES. Those farmers who want to breed a I good soiling' horso for town purposes j would bo well adviaed to go in for a pedigree mare or two, says tho "Aus tralian Farm and Home," as they .are as usefui for farm work as the usual non-pedigrv.e typo of l'avm horse, whereas their progony from a stallion of their own breed is a much more sale able article, as it is usually more mass ive, stronger, and more stylish " than when the mother is not well bred. If one cannot afford to buy a pedigree mare at a breeding age, however, the next best thing to do is to go in for a iilly foal or two and rear thoiu till they arc old enough for stud purpose's. Tho Clydesdale is the most useful breed and as roomy and big a typo of mare as possible should be bought, as the heavier a maro is the more valuable she will bo for breeding from. The average type of farm maro of- no par ticular breeding is not big enough to give good selling stock for town work, even if she be served b\' a f...

FROM FLOUR TO BREAD. Ail old English flour miller writes in .ii.> "Hawkes Bay Tribune": A ton of flour in England of 2,240 lbs., or eight sucks of 2801bs, will pro duct'. on an average between 1300 and 1440 loaves of 21b weight. '.Bakers in England weigh off dough at 21b 3oz, or. 21b 4 uzs., the extra ounces allow ing for evaporation in baking. Water, salt, potatoes and yeast arc added to the flour to ferment and make dough. An average of 1,350 loaves from a ton of flour at 5d per 21b loaf, is £32/5/10. With flour at £16 per ton, comment is superfluous. Fifty-four bushels wheat produce 2,2401bs flour, namely, on® ton English weight. Offal payg cost of milling.

THE COST OF MILK PRODUCTION In the courso of a comprehensive re port just issued by the South-eastern Agricultural College, "Wye, England, the results of extensive inquiries into the cost of food iu relation to the pro duction of milk are given. Mr G. H. Garrod is 'responsible for the report from which it is gathered that one ben efit derived from this careful inquiry has beon a coiniuondable desire to save money on the food bill without im pairing the efficiency of the dietary. At one time, excessive supplies of turnips and mangolds were given during tne winter months, but in the past year, the quantity was roduced to an average of o^lbs daily. Of the fodder crops, hay is the most valuable, over 70 per cent of liay being furnished in the builder portion of the dietary.
