LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 10 January 1914
LUCERNE AS A SOIL RESTORER. Mr. S. P. Keys, writing in "Hoard's Dairyman," says:-When we come to the question of.the upkeep of the fer- i tility of our farms, we find that we face quite a serious problem. From what source are we to restore the humus, or vegetable matter, that is being rapidly exhausted by continu-i ous cropping? Manures and commercial fertilisers, while valuable, are not always obtain able. Farmers waste the barnyard manure, and feel that they cannot af ford to buy commercial fertilisers. To fill the bill there must be something within easy.access of every farm. The answer to this is-green manures. The king of'legumes used in green manuring is lucerne. Not only does it answer every requirement of a green manure, but is is also one of the. most -valuable. of. the standard crops. You:maybe cropping a given piece of 'land to lucerne,' obtaining each year frbm' five to seven cuttings, and at.,the same time you have at hand the means, of restoring the fertility of the so...
SMOKING WHILE MILKING. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 10 January 1914
SMOKING WHILE MILKING: Do not allow dogs or loafers to be round at milking time. If any acci dent occurs by which a pail-full or partly full of milk becomes dirty, do not try to remedy this by straining, but reject all this milk, and rinse the pall. We remember one day, when on a visit, seeing a milking hand smoking a pipe. Suddenly, he spoke to the cow, and the pipe fell from the man's mouth into the bucket. He made one grab into the milk-bucket, put the wet pipe into his pocket, and went on milking! Then, what about the ash from a pipe or cigarette fall ing about everywhere? Sack the man or boy who smokes while milking.

IRON FOR FOWLS.'- ' Iron is present in the owil's body; part of this Iron is in an organilsed, torm in the red. corpuscles of the blood. The total amount of 'iron. i small, but neverthelessr, lit isi o, great importance, and a deflciencyre sults in anaemia. One frequently finds:that eggs laid' by insulticiently fed' fowls. have liale. yolks. The coloring of thlie yolk '7i due to pigments, and, possibly, to..the phosphollpine termed lecithin. Iron, in an organised form, is found in,the ash of the egg. Vegetable foods,.es pecially clover and lucerne, are rich in minerals, and their use resultsllii richly-colored yolks. Anaemic fowls may be easily treated by adniinister-' ing to each live drops of perchlorlde of iron in a teaspoon. of well-sweeten ed milk.

FATTENING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 10 January 1914
FATTENING POULTRY. The best and, at the same time, most economical method of fattenmng all kinds of poultry is to keep;them Im connuement for a short time before they are required for table.. A. good deal or judgment, however, has to;be exercised in deciding the length of time this, confinement is. to.last, for f1 overdone, even in the slightest de gree, the birds rapidly lose flesh and. go back in condition. Strange as it may seem, once this begins, no amount of feeding will restore either their weight or condition till after they have regained their liberty again. For this reason the poultry must be confined for too long a period before they are required.

FOR THE FARMER. HOUSING POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Warrnambool Standard — 10 January 1914
FOR THE FARMER. SHOUSING POULTRY. If all poultry houses of the closed in type had an end or one side of them knocked out, disease would' dim nish by one-half, and the profits from. the birds compelled to roost in them would, probably, be doubled. It is impossible to conceive anything more insanitary and conducive to. disease than the ordinary type of fowlhouse one sees in the country. It is cramp. ed, dark and without any ventilation, except the many draughty cracks. It is little wonder that going from the foetid atmosphere into olten an un* sheltered yard the birds contract colds, and soon become a prey to dis ease. It were far better to let. the hens roost in trees. The sleeping quarters of fowls should be merely draught-proof shelters from extremes of weather and, if winter eggs be de sired, they should have dry scratch ing quarters for bad weather. Always have your poultry houses open to'thie north.
