SHEEP RAISING THE VALUE OF LUCERNE. SOME PRACTICAL ILLUSTRATIONS. SECRET OF SUCCESS. No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Snowy River Mail — 10 April 1914
SHEEP RAISING THE VALUE OF LUCERNE.. SOME PRACTICAL ILLU3TRA TION S. SECRET OF SUCOESS. No. II. The whole secret of success lies in good buying and selling. Some men have the faculty of hitting the marke right nearly every time; others cannot seem to do so. There is no doubt that the Goulburn Valley settlers are also largely assisted in this matter by tho fact that they have at their very doors several large markets for sheep, such as Shepparton, Rochester, Kyabram and Bendigo, all towns of several thousands of inhabitants. The matter was fully gone into with Mr Stover (an irrigation expert on the Shepparton settlement). Hle was enthusiastic over the matter. He stated that so far as the Shepparton district was concerned, although settlers had not been long in the industry, the system to he followed had been estab lished. He was. advising settlers to keep the kind of sheep that would give them the highest prcfit in any given length of time. At certain times -it would be lambs; at oth...

MALLACOOTA ENTRANCE -4---e BY AN OLD RIESIDENT. Twenty years ago the. large sand dunes, with heavy scrub of banksia and teatree, which ended a little be low Harrison's, were not nearly as large as now.. They ended about a mile'from Bastion Point in a.bank of c.eeping scrub, and f omn there a low, newly-formed sand spit ran down to the entrance, which .was then opposite Captain's Point. Be yond that to the rbcks inside Boat Harbour an older sand dune (vas formed, covered.- with an old scrub, perhaps as old as, that below Harri son's, with dead scrub fallen and lying among.the live scrub, The creeping scrub that ends the dunes at Harrison's Point runs under the sand and sends up branches here and there to blossom and seed, rooting as it goes. Someone pulled up an. armful, roots, and all, and planted them, about 50 yards apart, down the sandspit. Some of these grew and formed for themselves hum mocks with the sand they caught.
