SIZE OF SHEAF. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 16 May 1914
SIZE OF SHEAF. There can be no set size for a sheaf, t'i't Uie size must be regulated accord ing to conditions. For Instance, in wot districts, or where the crops are late in maturing, the small sheaf is the safer, as the sun and wind are better able to penetrate through the sheaf, and so minimise the risk of si.routing or moulding about the band. Again, by making the sheaves on tlie small size, stacking can be commenc ed a day or two sooner. On the oth er hand, however, the large-sized sl eaves have their advantages. First, it is more economical on twine; sec ondly, much time is saved in stook ing and stacking; thirdly, a fair-sized sheaf will stand up against winds in the ftook better than the small size.

CROPS FOR FODDER. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 16 May 1914
CROPS FOR FODDER. The time seems opportune to di rect the attention ot farmers to the necessity ot' planting fodder crops, and lor their subsequent conservation as a provision lor stock and feed dur irg the winter. The weather this season has been very dry, and in al most every district absence o£ rain has been severely felt. The man who dees not take this wise precaution o£ providing winter feed will have a grim realisation o£ his lack of forethought when ho linds his dairy herd, and other stock, languishing for the food which Nature withholds during her unpropitious seasons. It is, however, quit2 within the pro vince of the farmer to conserve suffi cient fodder for his stock to tide over the winter. There are so many ex amples of the splendid results from silos that it is hard to conceive why the practice of making silage has not become more general throughout the State. When we have the managers of but ter and cheese factories reporting "the satisfactory increase of milk supplies...

FLOCK MANAGEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Berringa Herald — 16 May 1914
FLOCK MANAGEMENT. If strong, healthy and vigorous Iambs are wanted, extra care must be given to the ewe llock £rom time Of mating to time of lambing. During ; this time the ewes should be steadily ' gaining in llesh. It is not desirable : that the ewe flock after mating should ■ ever have to become the scavengers I of the farm; that business should bo i leit for store sheep. The ewe flock ia I too valuable for that work, for it is from this flock that the future feeding j lamb is obtained. One often hears of heavy losses be | ing experienced by sheep breeders through ewes being frightened by dogs and other causes, aud this brings tc mind reasons that ought to be up permost in the minds of all those who have charge of lambing ewes. Among thorn there is one precaution that should never be absent, and that is this: That the ewe flock should never be allowed to be rushed by the shep herd's dog, nor should it be hurried when being driven, nor under any cir cumstances should it be given a...
