THE FARM AND DAIRY. SILOS AND ENSILAGE. THEIR COMMERCIAL ASPECT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 April 1914

THE FARM AND DAIRY. 8II/OS AND ENS1L.AGK. |BlU COMMBKCtAI, ASPECT. Silage is fast changing the method* of feeding .'ill classes of live stock One of the chic? advantages of silage feeding is the cheapening of the ra tion nf the dairy cow. The succulent silage is murh mofc desirable than the dry, woody butts of tha fodder, or even liny with its large amount of crude fibre. Three dairy farmers, whose testimony is here, quoted «.« representative of a number of others, say "T am satirdkd . that the in crease of production of milk and cream 1ms paid for my silo this ye-ir. Mv co^s have milked the past winter just as if they were on cTass." "Si lage paves one-half in the feed 1 ill-, .and over one-half in the amount of hay eaten." "I find silage excellent for dairy cows. Our cows mil'; as well in winter as they do in Kurnm-r ; in fact, they usually ^ain when we com , mcnce to feed." j Besides the cost of the ration beifu reduced, there is also a reduction in the cost of producing a riven ...

BRANDING OF HIDES. OUR PRESENT WASTEFUL METHODS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 April 1914

M:ANMN<; OF HIDI OKK rrtKSK.N'T WASTKI'TI, M KTHODS. 1 The frn>nt waste of money cntailod by our present metho1 of branding caI tic is a .subject which periodically crops up in the newspapers and lea ther trade journals. It. never ap pears, however, to trot past this staice, for the same injurious method of applying hot irons to the best part of an aninvil's hide still con Itinurs. In this connection it is point ' cd oi:f b\ the ftni:lish Farmers' Fed eration that the difference in price : of leather, were it not branded, is probably M. to -Id. per lb. Then, again. raw hides, if not branded, ; would fctcli Id. per lb. more, and, as theye hitlcs wci^h from 60tb. to S0!b. the difference in value is very ap ; preciable. The Federation advocates either an alteration of the nvihod of , branding, fir that the animals be branded with smaller brands, c>n the (.hooks, ears, or flank-not on the. ( rump or the back, as is at present marly always done. They consider | that this...

THE DAIRY GIRLS FOR THE DAIRY FARM. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 April 1914

THE DAIRY GIRLS FOR THE DAIRY FARM. That life on the farm can be mad* an ideal one we do not donVt ; but as the labour question is at sent we think-on som? farms at ler-.st it must be far from it. The scarcitj of good, capable men is a:; great now as ever it was. This wmild : ot. be so bad, however, if we ronld get girls to take an interest in tin life on th« farm, for as Ionlc as a girl does not undertake too much milking, and takes sufneient rest during t'\e day t-.: make up for the early rising, she in just ;-s great an asset in t hj» shed as a man.

THE NEW COLOURS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Independent, Buln Buln, Warragul, Berwick, Poowong and Jeetho Shire Advocate — 17 April 1914

THE NEW COLOURS. New colours and shaded cffecta »r* important features. "Mushroom" i* i comparatively now shade, supplant ing "champagne," which was used so much last year. M Kust " colour lift.', many followers, but proves so very trying that a woman is brave indeed who will attempt to wear " rust *' without combining it with just a sup gestion of pale blue, violet or white al the neck. An authority on the subject has said that there are over a hun dred shades of green. It does not seem possible that the eye could detect s< many changes of the one colour, but when a shopper essays to match n green the pearch its usually fruitlesB. and this partly proves the assertion. There are enough browns to fill an en lire article if one attempted to tie acribo them, and the time-honoured Muea nre still with us. Purple, ame thyst and violet shades come with thr spring-time, and when carefully select .id are becoming alike to blonde and brunette.
