DAIRYING STUDY "DAIRY QUALITY." [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914

0AI R Yl NO STUDY "DAIRY QUALITY." Two cows stand aide by side to th« bails. To both cows the same feed Is fed, yet one will extract from thai food as much again butterfat as the others (says a writer ini ^Farm and Home"). The butter product of the Eood is 100 per cent, greater with one ,cow than the other. This fact is seen m too great frequency in all herds of cows. What is that inner quality whereby one cow can producc so much more than the other from the same food? It is hard to find the right name for it, but it may be caled "dairy qual ity." Now, certain breeds of cattle are distinguished for this quality. They I have the power to accomplish this work In greater proportion and perfec tion by reason ot having been bred to that- tj«rpose from long, lines of an cestors. v:'bf"* like quality. * One would think that1-there would not be a dairy farmer in the land who would not be keenly alive to the necessity and econ omy of using such cattle for dairying ourposes.

DAIRY JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914

DAIRY JOTTINGS. The three essentials to know about dairy cow are: How much milk she gives, how rich in butterfats and oth er solids it is, and how much it costs to keep her. When these points are determined for each cow, the owner will know which to keep, and which to sell. Kindly treatment, comfortable build ings, .with good food, are the sources from which profit comes. Just how milk is elaborated in the udder is not well understood, but it is known much depends upon the sympathy of the cow with the milker. Be kindly, be cleanly, be regular, and thus you will get the best results. You draw your dividend on your cow night and morning. Your wheat crop /may rust, your pigs die from swine-fever, but the old cow ploda along, always doing her share to make the farm profitable. Some expert dairy breeders are in clining more and more to the belief that heifers should be allowed greater maturity before dropping the first calves, and are also permitting them, to lay on more flesh than has b...

ETIQUETTE AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914

ETIQUETTE AT HOME. There is certainly do better placa to learn the correct form of etiquette than at the family table and in the home. So many persons feel that it really makes no difference how they look or how they act at home if they can only be attractively gowned, and have good manners when in public. If they only, could realise what a mistake they make! How much more attractive the home would be if the mother and children were always • smartly and freshly dressed, and the simplest home meal served in a correct and dainty man ner. The unexpected guest would then cause no trouble or embarrassment, and the hostess would be free to en tertain her guests in a charming man ner. Children who are accustomed to good manners at home will never suiter from awkwardness and embar rassment when visiting, and as they grow older they will acquire an ease and grace of manner which will never forsake them, even in the most trying moments.

DISTRICT NEWS. Moondarra. [Newspaper Article] — Narracan Shire Advocate — 27 May 1914

DISTRICT NEWS. t(from Our Own Correspondents). Moondarra, The railway deviation at Erica (Harris) is now complete, and the first train ran over it on Thursday morning of last week. It is a very fine piece of work, considering the limited amount of money it has cost, and reflects much credit on Ganger Jas. Reid and the officers of the Department concerned. By its com pletion the weakest link in the Walhalla railway has been removed, and something sound and substantial put in its place. The total length of the deviation is 800 feet, aud its greatest distance from the' original line about 80 feet. It contains two reverse curves, one at each end of the deviation. The hill on the ea3t side had to be cut away for a considerable distance, and a large amount of earth had to be removed to make room for the loop. It is hoped that the train service will not be interrupted so frequently in bad weather, as was the case when the l< slip " was giving trouble all round. The timber is bei...
