SUCCESSFUL FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Advocate — 23 January 1912
SUCCESSFUL FARMING. Mr Alex. Anderson, of Pine Vale, Daroobalgie, goes in for wheat growing and dairying, the latter being under the care of Mrs Anderson, whose excellent butter finds a market anywhere. The vicissitudes of farming are exemplified in the result of his crops for the past two seasons. In the harvest of 1910 he took off 40 bushels to tlie acre from 100 acres, and received 3/6 a bushel for it, which is equal to £ 7 an acre—a fine return for the wheat grower. The last harvest yielded only 12 bushels per acre .off the sahie 100 acres, whilst some of nis other land under wheat yielded still less, some of it giving only two bushels to the acre. He looks forward to a good crop next season, when he will have about 600 acres of wheat in. Last year he had about 1000 acres under crop, and he is now fallowing 200 acres, and massacring the weeds.

THROUGH THE DISTRICT. OUT BOGAN GATE WAY. (By Our Travelling Representative). The storm which swept over the town and district on Monday of' last week was particularly sev.ere in the Bedgerabong and Gunning district^, the wind in many cases carrying away iron roofs, etc., and the accompanying lightning levelling many giants of the forest. The rainfall varied from 20 points on the river at Bed\x=req-\ gerabong, to one inch at M'Cann's, over near Bogan Gate, and around Gunning Gap 80 points fell. The wheat having been garnered, rthe farmer is now busy ploughing. A fair amount of new ground is being broken up for next season, and many farmers in this district will have a fair proportion of fallow under crop. The up-to-dateness of our present day farmer is demonstrated in the number of new telephones that have of late been installed throughout the Forbes district, and a line, now under construction- from Bogan Gate, will serve a number of settlers in Daisy Park and Gunning. Along the Bo...
