Somie interesting figures are contain ed ill the ninth annual report of the -State Rivers and Water Supply Com mlission to June 30, which was present edl to the State l'arliament a few days ago. iJ this it was set out that during the year 317,287 acres were irrigated. This was an increase over the previous year of 67,304 acres, and an increase of 85,000 acres over 1907-08, which up to that time was the record year.

BEST CROSS IN PIG BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 6 November 1914
BEST CROSS IN PIG BREEDING. The manager of a leading British bacon curing firm, in answer to this question, advises the mating of largo Yorkshire boars with pure or half-bred rcrkshiro sows, and to mate the re sultant sows back to a pure Berkshire boar. He thus explains:--"The rea sonis for these recommendations will be easilo seen if wec consider the charnac teristics of the two breeds, and the es sestials of a good marketable pig. The size and constitution to its progeny, :although it lacks proper ham forma tions, a serious fault on the market. The Berkshire is a much shorter and thicker pig, not so robust, but with well-shaped hams, so by the first cross the qualities of both are well combined, and a great improvement on either. bIreed in a pure state, but not until the sows of this cress are again crossed with the pureim Berkshire boar will the ideal pig se obtained, both for market and for breeding purposes, marketable for their size and shape, and breeders on account of the nu...

TELLING THE AGE OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 6 November 1914
TELLING THE AGE OF CATTLE. A cow's age can be estimated quite accurately by noting the appearance of the second n?et of permanent teeth. The first set is known as the milk teeth. A calf is born with a central pair of teeth, and the remaining pairs appear witlhin the first month. \Whllen the animal reaches the age of eighteen months, the central pair of milk teeth is replaced with larger and permanent ones. These are easily re cognised, as they are nearly twice as broad as the first ones. Other pairs ap ipear at intervals of approximately nine months, ibut this may vary somewhat, according to conditions. When the ani mial reaches the age of twenty-seven months, the intermediate pair of teeth appears, making four permane, t nas, easily recognised by their larger uile. Thq thirdl pair usually makes its r" pearance at the age of thirty-six montls? andl the fourth pair, the two d - eet:. at the age of forty-five min' .?
