WEANING PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

WEANING PIGS. Almost every breeder or pork pro ducer has his own special method of weaning pigs. The most important con sideration in all methods is to see that the pigs are so weaned that they do not cease growing or lose during this critic al period. Some pigmen prefer to allow the pigs to run with the sows until they wean themselves; others practice forced weaning at three or four months of age. A method very commonly advised is to wean the pigs a few at a time, taking out the largest, strongest ones at first and leaving the smallest and runtiest pigs until the last. Where this method can be conveniently carried out it is undoubtedly a good one, but as a rule circumstances on the average farm are such that it is not practical to wean the pigs in this manner. Pigs should always be encouraged to begin eating additional feed as early as possible. Wherever swim-milk is available this may be given in a pen into which the pigs only can go. A little shorts and maize may be fed with skim...

EXPORT OF BUTTER SCARCITY OF STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

EXPORT OF BUTTER SCARCITY OF STEAMERS. A deputation from the co-operative butter distributing companies waited on Mr. Tudor, Minister for Customs, and brought before him the position of the companies in regard to the shipment of butter. They pointed out that on ac- count of the use of steamers for military transport purposes bottoms had been diverted from 28th October to 17th November, and no steamers would be available for the shipment of butter to England. Four thousand tons of butter had accumulated in the Australian States, and this would go to waste if not sent away immediately, Apart from that, the farmers would be obliged, unless relief was given, to obtain help from financial sources to carry on their business. Trade at present was com pletely disorganised. Steps should be taken to endeavour to secure some steamers. In reply, Mr. Tudor said he would consult his colleagues to see if space could not be obtained to meet the requirements of the butter ex porters.

LUCERNE AND THE BLOAT TROUBLE. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

LUCERNE AND THE BLOAT TROUBLE. Among the few things that stand in the way of the fullest success in the dairy business as regards feeding lucerne to cattle, one of the most seri ous is the liability of cattle to bloat and often die as a result of over-in dulgence in the luscious "kIing of for age crops." So much discouragement has resulted from dairymen from bloat that in the past it has been considered little short of foolhardy to try grazing it, and soiling has been the common practice of feeding lucerne in its green state. Aside from avoiding the bloat menace, the boiling system -makes a larger yield of lucerne from a given acreage possible, but against this is the heavy, constant amount of labour re quired, and also the fact that cows, when allowed to graze, will produce a better flow of milk. Just why a cow will bloat on standing lucerne and not after it has been cut is one of the things not yet understood, although the explanation probably exists in the fact that the standing ...

CHARCOAL FOR CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

CHARCOAL FOR CHICKENS. Too much cannot be said in favor of the use of charcoal in raising and maintaining chickens of all ages. Char coal pruifies the blood and absorbs the noxious gases generated. in the diges tive organs and neutralises their effect. It should be used in the first feed given the baby chicks, and continued through out the entire life of the chicken. A small quantity should be mixed with the daily mash. About five pounds of charcoal to every four hundred pounds of mash is a very good proportion. Be sides this it is well to keep a two-com partment hopper of charcoal and oyster shell in the laying house, so that the hens may help themselves at will. For baby chicks mix about a large teaspoonful of charcoal in a quart of mash and you will find they will clean this up with the rest of their food. Charcoal is one of the best regulators known to poultrymen, but like every thing else must be used with discre tion. For instance, if a large quantity is put in the mash the dr...

AUTOMATIC DEATH-DEALERS. SUFFOCATING SHELL FUMES. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

AUTOMATIC DEATH-DEALERS. SUFFOCATING SHELL FUMES. "This is not a war of men. It is a war of machines." A wounded officer was speaking, and speaking bitterly, for he had seen more than half the bat talion which he commanded swept down as the tall grass falls to the mower's scythe, by the terrible mitrailleuse. "There is an appalling soullessness about it," he went on. "It is savagely inhuman. Men turn handles and death Ilies out in 'large bundles' " (1 trans late literally to give the phrase -its full effect, writes H. HI Fyfe to the "London Daily Mail.") "'What this' battle lhas been-it is all really one battle, the 'Marne and the Aisne-no one can ever conceive who has not seen the battlefield. Men could never kill one another by heaps, by hecatombs. They would sicken at such wholesale slaughter. They would cry out, 'We are soldiers, not butchers,. A battlefield should not be an abattoir.'

QUICK FATTENING OF PIGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ringwood and Croydon Chronicle — 20 November 1914

QUICK FATTENING OF PIGS. "Pigs weighing 100 lb. at four imouths,"' is the heading of a letter from a correspondent to 'Hoard's Dairyman,'" in America, who says: "I have frequently read of quick fattening of pigs, and believe my experience may be of interest. I have a pure Chester Wh\Vlite sow that farrowed sitxeen pigs; she raised twelve of them. When six teen weeks old these pigs were killed, taken to the market and sold. They averageld t3 lb. each, the total weight being 1,117 lb., and at 12%e cents. (60 d.) per lb. (the market price), they brought me 139 dollars 62 cents (£20 10/ roughly). The sire of these pigs was a pure-bred Berkshire boar, which we find a good cross, as the pigs come white, and they do not have the smoky look that a Berkshire has. ''".We find it almost impossible to sell a pig that weighs more than 150 lb., and SO lb. to 100 lb. is the quickest selling weight to bring a good price. I once reached 13 cents. (6Ald.) per lb. To get the pigs ready for the market ...
