CATHCART. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
CATHCART. The Catlicart branch wants free dom of contract-employer and em ployee to be allowed to make their own bargains. The secretary reports: ?-"A fixed rule is not applicable to all districts, as some are more diffi cult to work than others, owing to chaotic influences, this is especially so in our district, as it is necessary to take advantage of all the fine weather during harvest time. We are opposed to any interference with a farmer or his family. If the lat ter were left till the age of 14, the difficulty would then be to be able to instil the practical side of dairying and farming, and that as long as the children comply with the regula tion re attendance at schools, no obstacle is presented to the rearing of a sturdy, active and practical race.

PORK MARKET SLUMP. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
PORK MARKET SLUMP. Several visitors from Great Britain, well qualified to speak, have lately told us of the splendid market in London for pork,, and indeed several Australian shipments have realised prices which have borne this out. JLU New Zealand the other day, Mr. Dun lop, of the Scottish Commission., re peated this assurance. He pointed out, however, that the Board of Trade , provisions are very stringent, and lie urged strenuous attempts to comply. Avitli these. Just while this expert was giving utterance to these re marks, word came by cable to the effect that there was a slump in the London pork market, the prices fall ing to a rate which were not pay able. This position, besides, had not been brought about by any over supply from Australasia, but by &lt;an unexpected and remarkable develop ment in other countries, including Russia and China. From China no less than 5000 carcases a month were reaching Liverpool, it was said, while Siberia! was sending a large quan tit...

NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
NOTES. The Stock Owners' Association of New South Wales, at their last meet ing, strongly protested against the proposed withdrawal from lease of the travelling stock reserves. Under present conditions they are kept clean, but if taken away by the Go vernment, it is feared that there will be little check on the growth of weeds, and 011 the spread of rabbits. The grazing farmers of Queensland will'this, season enjoy one of the best ever experienced. Grass has been abundant since last shearing, and the only difficulty experienced has been to keep the feed down, and to buy store stock at remunerative prices. Owing to formed difficulties in ob taining shearers, the shearing season now starts early in February, and ends the latter end of October. This month,?.March, over 2,000,000 sheep will be shorn, and about one and a quarter million in April. The clip is also expected to reach a record. A shearing contest took place re cently at Toowoomba for the cham pionship of the world, between Z...
WHEAT. MARKET STILL INACTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
WHEAT. MARKET STiLL INACTIVE. The hoped-for improvement in the wheat market lias not as yet eventua ted ; in fact, matters have rather gone from bad to worse, as far as prices .have been concerned. London and Continental operators have con tinued their cautions policy, of just purchasing as necessity arises, but there seems to have been an almost complete lack of speculation any where, even Chicago and New York pursuing moderate methods. Latest cables from London advised that the shipments afloat to the United King dom and the Continent were heavily maintained., while. the fact that In dia, . Argentina, and Australia have been rather pressing sales at home, has ? further tended to check any business, save for immediate require meints. , Some sales of Australian cargoes have, been effected at home lately, but the prices have generally ranged from 33/ to .33/3 per quar ter. which at present freight levels, does, not permit shippers paying more than 3/2. per bushely which represents , ...
BEEF NODULES. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
BEEF NODULES. Mr. A. J. Cotton, a Queensland pastoralist, and a dealer for many years in large lines of cattle, sheep, and horses, has just returned from Europe. Referring to the beef nodule scarce, he says that it is more on paper than in reality. He had many opportunities of seeing the inspection of Queensland shipments, and they Ave re readily passed. Where a no dule was discovered, the operation of cutting it out was' neatly done, and it did not disfigure the carcase. He predicts a bright future for Austra lian beef, as the consumption of beef is increasing, and the supply not up to the demand. He advises the breed ing of good quality sorts, and that nothing but prime should be ex ported.
FLOUR WEAKER. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
FLOUR WEAKER. Millers have evidently got tired of waiting for business to revive, and. to induce bakers to come in and operate, have once again reduced prices, the official quotation for leading city brands being fixed on Monday last at the lower rate of £8 per ton. This may have the effect of stirring up bakers, but they have certainly gain ed by waiting this year, and'buying from month to month. They have thus benefited by the continued fall in wheat, but it is doubtful whether there will be any further reduction. The millers in Victoria have also been forced to lower their prices. Current quotations in the three leading States compare as follows: 1910. 1911. Sydney .. .. £10/5/ £8 Melbourne £10 £7/15/ Adelaide .. £9/10/ £8/5/

Cornsacks have met "with some inquiry, but it lias been the city merchant rather than the country storekeeper av1io "lias been the operator. The continued broken weather in the country ?has ? checked the immediate demand for bran-bags, while woolsacks have mostly been quiet, though a little business lias been effected on account of Queensland and the early shearing districts here. Quotations have not materially altered since we previous ly reported.

Stock Relative Value of Black and White Faces. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
^8 .J Relative Value of Black and White Faces. BY "THE SHEPHEKiX" In discussing the relative value of black-faced and white-faced sheep, it must be done from several stand points. viz.. their adaptability for crossing purposes., for their quality of meat, economic production of meat, -wool-bearing qualities, and pro duction of profitable lambs. It is un derstood that the breeds to be re ferred to do not include the merino, except as a medium for crossing. As climate and soil plav such an impor tant part in sheep-breeding, in any comparison of breeds, it will be best to consider these factors as being the same for all. Xow, when it comes to the question of breeds, there is no necessity to deal with all those introduced * to New South Wales, much less with the total num ber existing. Until about fifteen years ago, there were only three breeds that held a good sway amongst all classes of graziers. Thev were the Lincoln. Romnev Marsh, and Shropshire. The first was crossed with the merin...

A WONDERFUL SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
A WONDERFUL SEASON. There is 110 one even among the old inhabitants who seems to remember a season quite like the present in Riverina. Throughout the spring and summer the average rainfall was between 3in. and 4in. per month, with about 5in. in February, and the whole country gives the impression of verdant and virile September rather than the sober-tinted March which is the normal state in Riverina. Tanks are full everywhere, thousands of acres of land are being fallowed, and what with the green sward, the sparkling brighter foliage of the tim ber, and the pleasant purple back ground of the hills and the ranges, the whole country is a vast pano ramic scene of eye delighting beauty and promise for the yielding of fur ther abundant harvests. It is literally a smiling landscape animated by flocks and herds, sleek and fat, which graze contentedly knee-deep in fodder. A district grazier was com plaining the other day that his hold ing was a wilderness of grass and herbage, anl that he h...

TOO MUCH GRASS. [Newspaper Article] — The Land — 10 March 1911
TOO MUCH GRASS. Large aiul small graziers in X.S.W. and Queensland, complain that there is too much grass, and it is growing rank. The consensus of opinion is that, with the autumn so near, there will be no herbage. This is a serious thing in country carrying one sheep to one acre or acre and a half, as the grass will be too rank for the lamb ing ewes, and there will be little or no sweet pickings for the lambs. Un less a sudden spell of dry weather occurs, the likelihood is that sheep will be troubled with worms and footrot, and the older sheep are not likely to keep up their condition. In many places the grass is up to the horse's wither. Old timers say that the season points to a scarcity of fats in the Homebush markets as soon as the winter sets in, and the earlier the shearing takes place the better it will be for the sheep.
