Cart the grass as soon as mown and firm this as soon as possible, remembering that the usual prooess of. stack-building is reversed in onsilago-making, for tlie sides must bo higher than tho centre, and a damp or wet day is rather better than a dry ono.

CLIP THE UDDER. [Newspaper Article] — Boort Standard and Quambatook Herald — 14 May 1914

CUP THE UDDER. Tt is nut uncommon among dairy ■.■■."■■ cows to" find the udder covered with a dense growth of Jong .air, which, al though it may bo of somo protection to the mlder," nevertheless, from the standpoint of sanitation and comfort to tltb cow dnriug milking, is a detri ment. Under ordinary farm condi tions tho hair is generally covered with filth, and oven in tho best kept dair-.v ies, unless clipped, will collect somo .dust •and filth. Furthermore, because of the location, it is highly probable that some hairs will find tttoir way into tho "milk pail during milking. In order that such conditions may not occur, these hairs should be clipped close once or twice each year, thereby preventing collection of filth, and per- _ mitting greater ease in washing tho udder. It has been my experience , ' that "kickers" are also developed when breaking heifers to milk because of these Ipng hairs.

' It was reported that the attempt to liold a conference, of the States oil the question of the bulk handling of wheat had not met with success, .owing to the fact that organi sations in other States did not think that- any good purpose would be served by the conference. Tho chaiauian (Mr. McLellan) said that bulk handling would come in New South Wales in time," indeed it would be ■ adopted by all States in the fulness of time. It was a big matter, and the Govern ments must jiroceed carefully. The chamber expressed itself as opposed to. an inercassd duty on superphosphates, which must raise tho price.

' The essentials of an environment suitable for breeding animals ^aro such ir and oxcroi.su dnriug' sunliglit, iroslj ,1ir and oxoroisu the day, and warmth and freedom from dampness at night. During the sum mer months the housing problem is an easy one; and that of providing range is more difficult because it involves fencing, and for this reason too many pig-gruwers fail to provide sufficient range to derive the greatest possible benefit from it. There aro no rules for determining the acreage necessary to pasture a given number of pigs. Kailifall, the nature of the soil, tillage, amount of grain fed, aro all factors that enter into the problem. In most parts of the province one-half acre of well culti vated land sown to a suitable forage crop will be sufficient to pasture one brood sow and her progeny of seven pigs. Tho amount of grain that should bo fed in addition to the forage thus supplied will vary from 13 to 10 lb. per day according to the s...
