Commission on sales � pee cent. Establishment of pastures. Good work needed. In View of the fact that the percentage of permanent pasture on a property is the main Factor in connection with carrying capacity this subject should be Given the utmost consideration. Though the majority of Farmers commencing fat Lamb production would Start with a few ewes they should Endeavor to increase their carrying capacity by laying Down a few acres to permanent grass each year. Even if a Man were Able to finance the laying Down of a Large acreage at the outset this method would not be practicable As he would be deprived of too Many paddocks at the same time and it is generally found that on the average farm of up to 100 acres 15 to 20 acres is the maximum that can be handled in a year. This acreage will depend on finance labor and horsepower available but it is far better to sow Down five acres properly than to half do a Largo acre age. The main Points to Bear in mind when endeavouring to establish pastures Are 1 thorough soil preparation. 2 sowing it Tho Correct Timo of j car. 3 using Only Tho Best of seeds. Good seed bed. Lot us therefore briefly consider each of these three Points. Soil preparation will Start by Early fallowing which should to done during june and july for Spring sown grass or during octo Ber and november for autumn swings. The two main reasons for fallowing Are Tho cleaning of Tho ground and Tho conservation of moisture the latter applying More especially to summer fallowing for autumn swings. Ono very important Point to be remembered in connection with this mat Ter is that surface working must be regular after Tho original ploughing for by this Means weeds Aro killed As they strike. On no account should a deep ploughing to Given just prior to sowing otherwise another crop of weeds will be brought to Tho surface and this will compete against the Young grass and Clover. So remember plough Early and work constantly. This will vary according to location. For the purpose of discussion to will differentiate bet you coastal and Back country farm. Take firstly Spring swings. These can be made in August on coastal farms whereas in Tho Back country the last fortnight in septem Ber is generally Tho most suitable time. Autumn swings should be Mado As Early As possible in both cases prefer ably during february. Tho importance of this Early autumn sowing cannot to emphasised too strongly As it is absolutely Esso Tinl for the Young plants to become established before they Are Likely to receive interference from frosts. As a general Rule Spring sowing is preferable in Tho Back country to avoid severe frosts in the Winter and receive Tho Benefit of higher summer rainfall whereas Tho Milder conditions and comparatively Light summer rainfall favor Early autumn swings on the coast. J time to sow. It is a general practice on non no farms to sow pastures after Early Pota toes or Grain crops and although Gool results Aro sometimes soon from this method it should be avoided and in Endeavor made to sow pastures As Earh As possible on allowed land Only l a dry summer it is not possible to Bov Early unless Tho land has Boon fal Lowed owing to tack of moisture Anc to wait for rain often results in sowing being left until Well into april which is far too Tate is the frosts Are Herc before Tho Young plants Are established Good seed pays. The amount of work required successfully to i Procaro land for grass if considerable and the value of this a to a Large extent lost unless Best Quality seeds Aro used. If sowing cock foot use Only Good local or new zealand seed. Do not buy danish seed in it grows a Large percentage of see Heads and vory Little Leaf. If using English grass do not buy the Ordinary English but make a Point of getting Cert lion first Harvest Peren Nial Rye grass. It costs very Little Moro and lasts for years longer. When purchasing Clover seed which is sold in several grades always buy the Best Grado. If including White Clover in a mix Ture Uso wild White rather than dutch White. The former is a perennial which spreads Over Tho ground whereas dutch White is Only an annual from which results will do Pond on seasonal conditions 1 sub Clover. On Tho majority of coastal soils subterranean Clover should form Tho basis of Tho clovers a but it is often advisable to sow this m conjunction with cow grass which will produce considerable toed during Tho first two or three years while Tho subterranean Clover is to coming established. It is not possible to Deal with Tho question of pasture mixtures in general but Farmers can receive advice from the agricultural department in connection with their particular eases and Are advised to get into touch with Tho agricultural Oili cers of their districts for this information. Next week the last article of this a Prius will appear. It will Deal with Tho management of a flock of ewes throughout the year. . In Stock. The former drastic methods.

Butter Quality. New South Wales leads. Suggestive is info Nuion from Wales showing How that state consistently leads Tho rest of Australia in Butler Quality. Only three states Aro mentioned but we know regarding Tasmania that Tilo figures would not to flattering if they Wero detailed Tho report records the completion of Tho departmental Honor Board on exhibition it i to Wales Dairy factory managers con for enc and Tho records of grading in Victoria and Queensland recently compiled and Mado Avail nolo make it possible to Institute a comparison of Lontor Stato Quality averages that con Voys its own lesson. Tho highest average Quality of but Ter produced in Kow South Wales fac tories was reached in 1030-31, when Tho choicest percentage was. Dur j Jug Tho past year Tho average Quality was Asci Orson at s7.s per cont choicest Tho Comparativo Quality percentages Are new South Wales choicest 87.8 Victoria choicest i Queensland choicest Gil intense grazing. How it should be Practised. Much has Hoon written of late advocating intensive grazing by Tho rotational system it is Practised by a few progressive far mers in Tasmania but the urgent need is to Havo it extended. As to Tiow a now zealand Farmer o or. Phillips at Marton practises it Tho following statement explains or. Phillips farm consists of Only 300 Deres divided into fourteen pad docks of about seven Aeres each Yot it carries about 870 Breeding owes per year and their lambs until Tho Lamb s Aro sont to Market. The drop of Lam a is consistently about 100. Por cont., their Vallie Over �1 a head and Tho ewes put 8 la. Of Wool per Hoad. Pour Ewt. Of fort Lisor por acre Aro applied each autumn. Prom into sum Mer when nil Tho lambs Havo Boen sold until lambing comm Enos in july or August the ewes arb Kent in Ono in Obj being shifted daily. Hanco Tho stocking of Cash paddock is at Tho into of Over 120 per Aero for Ono Day in fourteen for about six months. Id other words Tho grazing period is Ono Day and spoiling period thirteen Days daily shifting. When lambing commences the daily shifting continues except that Only Tho Unla bed owes Are shifted. Tho lamed owes Are loft for a Day or two Tri the paddocks in which they lamed. After following this proc Oduro for n few Days the jammed ewes left be Hind in a few paddocks Are brought together into a Small mob. This is added to until so or 100 ewes have lamed. Those than have daily shifts and Are added to from Tiro up Timo Tho process going on with Tho ultimate object of dividing Tho whole of Tho ewes into twp equal flocks. Series of paddocks. On completion of lambing about september each sub flock has a series of seven paddocks Over which to rotate. By this time Tho recovery of growth is so tepid As to Noces Vitato Shorter resting period Between Graz Inga to obviate getting beyond Tho stage at which it can o readily util sed. Tho running of two rotations each Over six or seven paddocks continues until the lambs Aro soul away. In addition to Tho Breeding Ewo flock or. Phillips has found it Possi ble to fatten a few dry Theop during periods of High grass production and for Turco or four years to has closed Ono Sov Piniero paddock for Hay. In 1033 and 193-1. In addition to Tho Hay saved and fed 22 tons of Mangold Wero bought and fed out Over a period of six weeks in Tho Levy on butter. British plan forecast. A suggestive statement has appeared in the English press As to future imposts on imported butter to assist Tho Dairying Industry in the old land it is recorded Tho milk marketing Board is per severing in its endeavours to get Moro Money for Tho Homo milk Industry by the imposition of a Levy on All import Tod Dairy produce. At the to cent meeting or Tho Board or. T. Bax Tor Tho chairman said Tho Board re a a did it As indispensable that a policy of a Levy subsidy should _ Boim Plemen Ted. Tho government is already committed to this policy he continued. Imported Dairy products at Low Pri Ces and Tho scheme designed by exporting countries to dump supplies in this country there is no bettor alter native than to collect by Means of a Small Levy on imported produce a sub Stantial sum to assist Tho Industry at Homo. Tho act in operation at Tho moment will terminate in september 1037, and it a our expectation that As from that Dato the Levy subsidy principle will butter traders Hore have As yet no information is to what Tho amount of Tho Lovy is Likely to to. At present Thero is a duty of 15/ per cwt. On imported foreign butter but Dominion produce enters free of duty. It is thought that whoa Tho Chango is Mado in so Pembor 1037, Tho government t my possibly increase the Lovy on for sign to 20/ per cwt. And impose a 5/ per cwt. Duty on Dominion pro ducts but no definite information is available at the moment. And with the increasing higher butter yields. Should imitate Denmark. During an address to dairymen in Sydney recently the acting minister of co Morco or. Thorby stated if Tho average production per cow in Australia of butter fat could to increased to Tho average of new zealand in 1928-20, it would to Yorth to Australia at the Export prices then prevail ing �15,000,000 or oven at 1/ por lb., 10j millions. Against those figures let them compare those of Denmark where in 1003-04 the average production was 232.0 . Of Buttor int and in 1928 20 it had risen to 202.g ." these statistics to added showed what a tremendous increase was still possible in Tho Industry of austra Lia and they should Endeavor to Emu late the Danos instead of criticising Thom. Unsolved questions. There were Many unsolved questions being considered or. Thorpy continued. There had recently been a re organisation of the Dairy. Produce control Board and Tho producers had gained a greater degree of representation than they had Ever had before. Tho Board would sit towards Tho end of Tho present month and Many Vita questions were being referred to it. Tho government hoped to get most valuable advice and guidance from Tho Board. Nothing to Pear in future. So far As the butter Industry was concerned or. Thorby continued Australia had nothing whatever to fear for the next Fow years. To had already Given the Figeros As to imports to Tho United kingdom of but Ter from other than Empire coun tries arid indicated the big margin still available to one Urago expansion in Tho dominions. Or. Thorby added that to Hood that on or. Earlo Pago s return we should hear something of the forma Tion of an Empire Dairy products Council much on Tho same Linos is Tho Empire meat Council of which Tho foundation was Laid lost year. Empire organisations. He hoped and expo Tod that in Tho near future they would Seo Tho Empire meat Council on Empire Dairy products Council and Empire fruit and councils functioning and others wore in View to cover Tho operations of. A wide variety of do minion products. Tho dominions Whilo sending to Tho British markets their own products and admitting freely British Mado goods in Exchange would by main Taining a two Way traffic which was going to make England tend up to Tho Trade jars which to Day wore raging air around it referring briefly to Tho Export but Ter question or. Thorby concluded by congratulating Tho new South Wales managers upon the Quality they had attained and retained and regret Ted that go far Tho other states had not been Able to stand up to their Lead. Avoid bad cleansing at calving time bad cleansing if a source of great trouble and is caused by membranes remaining in Tho uterus and decomposing causing inflammation often blood poisoning. This condition leads to a diminished milk Supply ill health and even Joss of the cow All because proper attention was Noe paid to the cow at calving Timo.

Is Dane favored commenting on the temporary arc Mont entered into Between Britain and Denmark for Tho continuation of Tho existing rate of imports of danish Buttor into Britain Tho primary producer Sydney says an examination of Tho Anglo danish Trado figures Bingo 1033 will show " that Tho bal Anco of Trado Bot won Tho two countries has remained persistently unfavourable to Britain. In 1933, Tho and Torso Balanco was Moro than fstg.23,000,000, Whilo in 1934 it was nearly �stg.l9,000,000, and in 1035 about �stg.l7,500,000. This re a auction was contributed to by both a Small Iner Easo in British exports to Denmark and a decrease in imports from Denmark but the unfavourable Balanco is still too Large to support a claim that Tho Danes had made h serious Effort to Honor their obligation under Tho agreement to Correct Tho Denmark has not sent to Britain Tho full Quantity of Buttor permissible under Tho agreement but that was because it preferred to Send it olso Liere certainly not because it was sensitive about its failure to increase materially its own imports from Bri Tain. Actually of course the Danes like Tho australian producers Hava found Tho British Market first. Our own attitude has been and still is based on Tho Broad Principio that Empire countries should Havo first Placo in Empire Trade. This Principio has been Tho guiding Factor Trade. Policy of Tho government of which or. Thorny is a Mcmoor and has had Tho whole hearted support of Tho Stato government also. Recently Tho of Coral government gave comorote expression to its. Empire first policy through Tho customs Tariff and is now asking other sections of Tho australian primary producers the Wool and wheat growers to Havo Faith in its a Wisdom and Bear patiently Tho first repercussions to its claim. To Havo no desire to criticise that policy / Tho paper adds. Indeed to believe that in the Long Mil it will prove to have been Tho right Ono to pursue. But to do a Oslo to Point out that if it is Wise and just for Australia to Maka sacrifices for Intra pm Piro t Rade it is Rio less justifiable o ask Britain As we do to safeguard the interests of Tho Commonwealth and Tho other dominions. Beyond this to have not gone and do not intend to go. We have claimed and to Rop cat Tho claim that in Tho interests of Tho Empire is a whole the Mother country should by asked to secure to Australia and Tho Oiler dominions an expanding share of its import Market for primary pro ducts. Foreign treaties. Whoa therefore Britain Renews Willi a foreign country even temporarily an agreement continuing with out precise qualification that country s privileges in its markets to claim the right to protest and further to ask Australia s representatives in Tho pre sent Trado negotiations in Britain _ to maintain and if necessary intensify their efforts to gain Tho objective of the producers they represent. Liat. Objective in Australia s Case is after Ali no More Aud no less than Australia itself a s conceded to Bri Tain. While always glad to have Tho views of Tho governments and their responsible ministers and give them serious consideration to therefore must in Tho present instance decline to Retreat Ono step from Tho attitude or have consistently maintained on Intra Empire Trade Canada s wealth.
