Tamleugh North. The absence of * good rainfall is causing great anxiety to the fanners in in this district, during the last month w« have had a Few good Bhowers which helped to refresh the crops and parched pastures, but a fall of two or three iuches is in gently required in order to give the subsoil a thoroughly good soaking. Some very fair crops of wheat are to be seen, hut the majority of them are in a vory backward state. The crops on tho fallow ground have kept their color «ell, and could yet yield fair returns, but nearly all the others are very poor and there is but very little chance of thorn yielding anything like a fair return. The oat crop is very poor and unless wa have a good dowupour very soon will probably not be worth harvesting. As might be expected the grass is vory short, but so far I have not heard of any Bheep being haad fed in this distriot. During tho Ia9t few years the attend ance at tho local school has fallen « great deal, but I aiji pleased to be ahl? to s...

FATTENING LAMBS. LECTURE ON RAPE AND ITS VALUE. [Newspaper Article] — Violet Town Sentinel — 15 September 1914
FATTENING LAMBS. LECTURE ON BAPE AND ITS VALUE.

Mr. J. D, P. Morgan presided. Mr. McConnell said that tho paper dealt rather with the small, intensive farmer than the large runholder. The farm of tho future would be small in area, necessitating the most intensive methods. In no branch of the farm ing industry was there a brighter pros pect than in fat lamb raising, and none with greater profit if carried out on improved intensive lines. After giv ing hints as to the best mating season and the care of ewes, the lecturer said that rape should be sown in the first week of September. It was a mistake to allow the rape to become too ma turo before turning in tho lambs. A little mustard should be added to tho rape, and free access given to salt. Rape was not blight proof, but early sowing and goo...
