LUCERNE AND MAIZE IN PORK PRODUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
LUCERNE AND MAIZE IN PORK PRODUCTION. Lucerne and maize are a splendid combination for cheapening the produc tion of pork. At Orbost, in Eastern Gippsland, Victoria, large numbers of pigs are fattened in this manner. They are run out on the lucerne stands and topped off on maize and pumpkins. They are seldom jf ever shut up to fatten, The usual method is to. throw the maize cobs out to them, and they w?ill do the threshing. Pumpkins, suo gar beet, or mangels make an excel lent addition to the grain. When they are used its consumption is lessened. Snowy River farmers estimate that the equivalent of two'bagsof shelled maize. will, together with the lucerne, suffice to fatten a pig. When fed conjointly with one or more of the other fodders slightly less will be required. In the United States of America the value of lucerne for fattening pigs is becoming generally recognised. There the ani mals are ringed to prevent rooting the ground up. They harvest their own feed, and from 700 lb. to...

HINTS ON REARING CALVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
HINTS ON REARING CALVES. (By a Practical Australian :Farier). In order to secure strong, healthy calves it is essential that the cow be well cared for previous to giving birth. She should be well fed during her milk ing period, and should have a rest of from six to eight weeks prior to calv ing. If the cow is milked too close up to the time of calving the calf will be deprived of its full supply of nutri ment, and the cow's milk yield during the following lactation period will be greatly reduced. Dry cows should not be turned into poor country, but should be kept in good working conditioh.- If good pas tures are not available, dry cows should be supplied with food of a laxative character, such as bran, lucerne, greenstuff or ensilage. Cows about to calve should be kept in close, handy paddocks; and if much milk is made previous to calving the udder should be 'eased, but not milked dry. Allow the calf to remain with the cow for one day after birth, so that the cow may clean and feed ...
RAPE AND KALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
RAPE AND KALE. (From eesse's "Agriculture in New Zealand.") Both'these crops belong to the same natural order and to the same genus as the 'turnip and cabbage. They are allU included botanically among the" cab bages, or brassicae, and the great diver sity in form which they exhibit is striking. These differences are prin cipally confined to the stem and leaves: The flowers, fruit and seed, are so similar that it is not easy to distin guish them. RAPE.--B. campestris, var. Rapa, is really a cultivated variety of the Swedish turnip, in which leah has been developed, while the root remains divid ed and fibrous. Botanically, the two plants. are identical. KALE.--B. oleracea,,var. Acephala, is a variety of the cabbage, possessed of an extraordinary constitution, and' capable of throwing up a copious crop of fodder for several years if not al lowed to run to seed. The rape, kale,- turnip, and. cabbage family., are all. descended from, one original plant--the sea colewort (Bras sica operac...

Among the reasons for an oceasional top dressing of salt for the soil are that it softens, moistens and breaks up the soil, making a larger proportion available to nourish the roots of plants; absorbs moisture from the atmosphere, retains such moisture in the soil, and compensates for a deficiency of rain; purifies and deton1poses all inactive matter, and distroys noxious germs and ova of insect pests. Tt renovates old pasture lands, making sour grasses rect.f n1 p? ntfnble for cattle and sheep; strengthens the straw cereals by setting free the requisite quantity of silica to nourish the stems. Suidden changes in the system of feed ing poultry are often responsible for vexation and loss. Any contemplated change should be made by degrees. _

OF RURAL INTEREST [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
OF RULiL INTEREST (By "Rustious.") Some interesting figures are contain ed in the ninth annual report of the State Rivers and Water Supply Comn mission to June 30, which was present ed to the State Parliament a few day ago. In this it was set out that durinl the year 317,287 acres were irrigated. This was an increase. over the previous year of 67,304 acres, and an increase of 85,000 acres over 1907-08, which up to that time was the record year. The actual development of irrigated agri culture was, however, much greater than the increase in acreage alone would in dicato. In 1907-08 the greater part of the land was only irrigated once. I was emergency irrigation of unpre paced land due to an abnormally dey season. Every year since there had been an increase in the acreage devoted to orchards and fodder crops, and con sequently in the percentage of the irri gated acres which each year is watered from three to six times instead of only one.

BEST CROSS IN PIG BREEDING. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
BEST CROSS IN PIG BREEDING. The manager of a leading British bacon curing firm, in answer to this question, advises the mating of large Yorkshire boars with pure or half-bred Berkshire sows, and to mate the re sultant sows back to a pure Berkshire boar. He thus explains:--"The rea sons for these recommendations will be easily seen if we consider the charac teristics of the two breeds, and the es sentials of a good marketable pig. The large York is long bodied and imparts size and constitution to its progeny, although it lacks proper ham forma tions, a serious fault on the market. The Berkshire is a much shorter and thicker pig, not so robust, but with well-shaped hams, so by the first cross the qualities of both are well combined, and a great improvement on either breed in a pure state, but not until the sows of this cross are again crossed with the pure. Berkshire boar will the ideal pig be obtained, both for market and for breeding purposes, marketable for their size and shape, an...

TELLING THE AGE OF CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
TELLING THE AGE OF CATTLE. A cow's age can be estimated quite accurately by noting the .appearance of the second seot of permanent teeth. The first set is known as the milk teeth. A calf is born with a central pair of teeth, and the remaining pairs appear within the first month. When the animal reaches the ago of eighteen months, the central pair of milk teeth is replaced with larger and permanent ones. These are easily re cognised, as they are nearly twice as broad as the first ones. Other pairs ap pear at intervals of approximately nine months, but this may vary somewhat, according to conditions. When the ani mal reaches the age of twenty-seven months, the intermediate pair of tooth ap)pears, making four permane. t nis, easily recognised by their larger sire. The third pair usually makes its r. pearance at the age of thirty-six montA?s and the fourth pair, the two 'd ',eot:, at the ago of forty-five mar'.s. _. there is any variation, the : ? . apt to be older rather than younger t...
BREAKING IN COLTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Lilydale Express — 6 November 1914
BREAKING IN COLTS. Have the colt in a spare box and get the halter on him, and let him come out side to have a turn by trying to get him to lead. Then get the harness, and shake it about him to make him get used to the rattle of the chains, etc. Then commence to put the harness on bit by bit, and, as ploughing is mostly the first work, put him in between two imore horses, all walking in the furrow, with a man each side leading the colt, and a boy to drive the other two. It is best to havýe a front horse that is quiet and that keeps his chains tight, as then the colt will not have a chance to plunge about. Teach him to turn at the ends steadily, and coax him when he has to turn at the end of the fur row. Never use the whip at the begin ning of working the colt unless it has to be. used to teach him to stop with the others, and the same at starting. Be gentle and quiet with him, and he will soon know his work, and after the day's work lead him home apart from and behind the other hors...
