DESTRUCTION OF SPARROWS [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 18 April 1914

DESTRUOTION OF SPARROWS ---U- In anower to inquiries as to mears of destroying sparrows with poisoned grain, dlr. Farrer, in the "'Agricultu ral Gazette," N.S.W., states : "I haaw Sbeen experimenting with the poisoning of splqrrows for several years. Sollm three or four years ago I made a yard with wire' netting and in it fad the sparrows regularly for a time. When they had become accustomed to it, instead of unpoisoned cracked wheat, I gave them a food which had been strongly poisoned with areenic. This had the effect of hilling a con siderable number, but never after wards would they look at food placed in that yard. Another trial was made elsew riere of strychnine. At tie first trial a number were killed, but never afterwards could I get them to take this poison. "As the intelligence of these birds ,is evidently too" great for quickly act ing poisons to be useful, 1 conceived -the idea of making trials of a slowly acting cumulative poison. Such a poison hlns no immediate unpleasa...

Poulty Notes. FEEDING FOR EGG PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 18 April 1914

Poulty Notes: FEEDING FOR EGG-PIRODUGTIOI, Thliep is no one best ration for egg production. What may be the most, profitable ration for one breed may not give the same result with a differ ent breed. The best ration with a flock in very cold quarters will not be equally satisfactory for the same birds kept in a very warm house. The best ration for fowls having plenty of range will not be so successful with those kept in confined quarters. It is necessary, therefore, to study and un derstand thoroughly the composition of the varigus foods, and to note thoseo that are exceptionally rich or deficient in protein, carbo-hydrates, or -husk.- When this is done, a ration can be fed to suit the needs and con ditions of any particular flock: s ear ing in mind the price at wh'ch the foods can be bought and adtdng to ithem or subtracting from them those rich in protein-flesh-formers-or tho foods rich in carbo-hydrates--at-form ers-or those rich in salts and miner als-shell and bone-makers-as m3...

The Farm. PROFITABLE PIG FEEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Brighton Southern Cross — 18 April 1914

The /~armi. 7 1PROFITABLE PIG FEEDING. The only way to make money in feeding pigs is to comply with the laws of animal physiology. In feeding a 150-pound pig up to a weight of ..00 pounds, the average. weight is 225 pounds, while the average live weight of a 150-pound pig is only 75 pounds. Now the maintenance ration is in proportion to the live weight, so that the food used-icet so far as making pork is concerned-is three times as great in the larger as in the smaller. Suppose there had been put up a small pig, and one weighing 150 pounds for pork making, keeping them ih warm quarters, and well supplied with every thing required for comfort and growth, and feeding them on the ideal pig food wheat middlinigs-it will require four pounds of piddlings to each one hundred pounds of live weight for maintenance, and three pounds more will make a pound of meat. Now to make an average pound of gain on each, will require feed as fol lows W\ith the smaller pig, three pounds are required for m...
