Poultry. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
In the Agricultural Notes (7th March) issued by the Department of Agricul ture for the " Man on the Land" there is an interesting article on " Poultry," which is printed hereunder for the benefit of " Record" readers As the moulting season approaches, the hens will slacken off laying, and the cull ing out of those that it is intended to dispose of should be completed, and at tention concentrated upon those that are being kept, so that everything possible for the health and well-being of the birds may be done during the moult. This is a trying time for most birds, and their profitableness after t;he moult depends very largely upon the care and attention bestowed upon them. In any large flock of hens, three dif ferent conditions are usually met with, and these require different treatment in regard to feed, and the Poultry Expert advises that, wherever possible, the birds should be divided into different groups for the purpose, feeding each according as their condition indicates.

FARMERS' BULLETIN RE LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 1 May 1914
FARMERS' BULLETIN RE LUCERNE. The Manager is in receipt of a copy of the Farmers' Bulletin, No. 37, second edition, dealing with lucerne growing, published in December last by the De partment of Agriculture. The pamphlet is a very comprehensive one indeed, and is got up in first-class style, being well illustrated. It deals with the whole prob lem of lucerne grfwing, and should, the Manager thinks, b| in the hands of every settler on the Area; it can be obtained on application to the Department of Ag riculture. An effort is being made to ob tain a supply from the Department for the use of settlers on the Area. If suc cess is achieved in this regard settlers will be duly notified through the columns of the "Record." In the meantime applica tion may be made by those particularly interested to the Under Secretary for Ag riculture direct. Among other points dealt with in the pamphlet, the following are brought un der notice:-? 1. Nature of Plant. 2. Variety. 3. The soil. 4. Lucerne and ...
HANWOOD HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
HANWOOD HALL. Action in connection with the: erection of Hanwood Hall is proceeding. - Guaran tors have been appointed by the Mirrool Settlers' Association, and steps are being taken to prepare the draft . agreement. The association is very anxious" to have the hall erected in time for the holding therein, of its first annual meeting, .to. take place in a few weeks' time. A celebration could be arranged if the two things could bs made to fit in together. In connection with the appointment of guarantors, a rather peculiar coincidence occurred. The names of the whole of the Executive Committee, of about seven or eight members, were placed in the hat with the idea of drawing the three guar antors therefrom. The draw was made and the names of the president, secretary, and treasurer, Messrs. Hawkins, Lenehan. ;andv ^Williams came out. Perhaps some ^lath^piatician will be so good as to work o^t) what the odds are against such a .thing occurring again. ,In connection with the furnishing or...

FACILITIES FOR TRANSPORTING PERISHABLE GOODS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
FACILITIES FOR TRANSPORTING PERISHABLE GOODS. Speaking of markets, as we go to press we hear, unofficially, that the Railway Commissioners intend, in response to re presentations made to them, to attach t6 the daily passenger train which passes through the Irrigation Areas to Junee, a truck fdr the carriage of perishable goods, which will be detached from the passenger train at Junee, and attached to the fast goods. It is hoped that this will be con firmed, in our ;next issue, when we hope to be able to give additional details.
GENERAL NOTES. THE LAST WATERING. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
GENERAL NOTES. THE LAST WATERING. . The special attention of settlers is called to the fact that the last delivery of water for the season will commence on the 14th of the present month. Care should be taken that all tanks and dams are filled during the last rotation, and there be no further opportunity of so doing, in all probability, until the 1st September next.

Dairying Notes. Coming Into Its Own. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
Dairying Notes. (By M. A. O'Callaghan, State Dairy Expert). Coming Into Its Own. Slowly but surely dairy farmers of ex perience are finding their way to . the Murrumbidgee Irrigation Areas, and. slowly but surely a number of those farmers who had no experience in dairying and thought that it was work which "any fool" could effectively carry on, are finding out that in order to make a success of the industry a sound knowledge of at least two sub jects, namely, live stock management, and soil cultivation, is necessary, Many of these amateur dairy farmers will pass away and their places will be taken by experienced men from these and other States. The pity of it is that New South Wales dairy farmers did not make them selves acquainted with the possibilities of dairying at Yanco when the land was first opened for settlement. If they had, many of those who have recently visited the Area, and have offered premiums to buy out struggling settlers, would now have established complete dairy f...

Red Poll Cattle. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
Red Poll Cattle. Werribee Research Farm is of interest because it is the home of a rather re markable herd of Red Poll cattle. This breed is perhaps the best of the so-called dual purpose cattle. Some critics allege that there is no such thing as a dual pur pose cow; that milking strains of such breeds as the red poll do not possess the qualities looked for in beef cattle. There is do doubt, however, that these cows are much bigger framed than the Channel Island strains, and culls, which, after all, are those in which the beef strain is most required, should show good beef qualities since they do not possess the milking qualities of their relatives. The "Agricultural Journal" of Victoria for September last gives the following in teresting information regarding the Wer ribee herd: Season 1912-13. Cow. Days in Milk.

THE STORIES OF TWO PIONEERS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
J THE STORIES OF TWO PIONEERS. There is always something to be learnt from a consideration of the methods which have been adopted by settlers on other irrigation settlements who have made a success of their undertakings. In recent exchanges reference has been made to two cases which should be of special in terest to "Record" readers. The first one, mentioned by the "Murray Pioneer," is that of Mr. Rowe, of the Wai kerie Settlement. Mr. Rowe arrived on the banks of the Murray with the first settlers 20 years ago, and he and his family had to rough it for a considerable time. "When it rained," he states, "the young sters were put to sleep, not on the beds, but under them, and with bark strips from the trees an endeavor was made to keep the beds themselves dry. The^adults of the party generally sat round and waited for the weather to break." Naturally, they felt pretty miserable until the sun had dried their clothes. Mr. Rowe pays a tribute to the bravery of the early set tlers' women ...

PERMISSIVE OCCUPANCIES OF GOGELDRIE FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
PERMISSIVE OCCUPANCIES OF GOGELDRIE FARMS. It has been decided to throw open twelve dairy farms within the new Gogel drie subdivision, for application, pending their gazettal. The applications may be lodged with the Commissioner for Water Conservation and Irrigation at Leeton, on and after Monday, the 25th May, 1914. All appli cations received on any day from the 25th May to the 30th May, inclusive, where conflicting, will be treated as simultaneous. The application form for permissive oc cupancy may be obtained from the Com missioner for Water Conservation and Ir rigation, Penzance Chambers, Elizabeth street, Sydney, or the Manager, Murrum bidgee Irrigation Areas, Leeton, and when lodged should be accompanied by a de posit of £5. Successful applicants must take the risk of the capital value to be placed on the .land but the valuation will, of course, be at the same rate as on adjoining Yanco Farms.
BACON FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
BACON FACTORY. The settlers on the Irrigation Areas who are interested in pig raising will be glad to know that the Commissioner for Irri gation is calling for tenders in the Syd ney press for the manufacture, supply, erection, setting to Work and maintenance of an ammonia refrigerating machine and appurtenances for the full and proper completion and maintenance of a refriger ating plant at the proposed bacon factory. It is understood-that this action is being taken in anticipation of the completion of the designs o| the building, which it is expected will be ready in a very short while. Thus will another market be open to the irrigation settlers, and there will be another answer to the people who say: , "The scheme is all right, but what about the markets."
Electric Light & Power. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
Electric Light & Power. Reasons have already been given in the "Record" why farmers on the Areas should, where possible, avail themselves of the electric power for machinery driving. It is claimed that the Commissioner's plant can drive any machine on the Areas as cheaply, if not more cheaply, than any other engine power. A great many of the advantages of the electric drive have also been given, but after all "the proof of the pudding is in the eating," and no doubt farmers will be much more concerned by actual results obtained on the Areas than by any number of claims put forward through this paper. There seems yet to exist a certain amount of uncertainty in the minds of some of our settlers as to the validity of all the claims made as to cheapness and convenience, and this is hard to "fight down." It is certain, however, that it is only a matter of a short time when sufficient results will be forthcoming from settlers to convince those who now hesitate. The following figur...
STUD CATTLE. For Yanco Irrigation Areas. [Newspaper Article] — Irrigation Record — 15 May 1914
STUD CATTLE. For Yanco Irrigation Areas. Mr. O'Callaghan, who runs, through a local manager, a commercial demonstra tion dairy farm on the Yanco Irrigation Areas, has, during the show, obtained some valuable stud Guernseys and Jerseys for his farm, so that settlers will have an opportunity of seeing the best types of pure breds, as well as of grades. The imported Guernsey cow "Clatford Hopeful 2nd," was secured at a cost of £43, she having been awarded second prize in her class. This animal is a fine sample of the" most strongly constituted type of G-uernsey. The yearling heifer, "Innocence," from imported "Donnington Girlie," by a son of the noted "Goldfinder," was obtained for £26. This is a family of which it is diffi cult to get representatives, the Americans having taken a fancy thereto. The grand dam of "Goldfinder" gave over 31bs. of butter in 24 hours at Maidenhead Show in 1907, and a half sister, "Lady 88th," gave 1130gls. of niilk in a season. "Music," young cow bred by th...
