    Notes 
    • CANOWINDRA'S COMPETITION.

      Messrs. E. M. Finn and T. G. Murray, win- ners of the local competition at Canowindra, have little need to worry about the safety of their flocks. Mr. T. Curry, manager of their river frontage property a few miles out of the town, hand fed his sheep from Sep- tember till the beginning of last month, and still has enough lucerne hay In hand to place his reserves far above Hie requirements laid down for the competition.

      Benevento, Messrs. Finn and Murray's 350- acre property, comprises 210 acres of splendid river flats sown to lucerne, 80 acres of lucerne on uplands and 60 acres of pasture lands. Its carrying capacity, assessed in terms of natural pasture, is about three sheep to the acre, but 1200 Border Leicester and Romney-merino crossbreds are now being carried comfortably on about 200 acres of lucerne, and so far they appear to have made little impression on the stand. This is in spite of the fact that until 70 points fell about a fortnight ago, the effective rainfall for this year was no more than 16 points. Last year 800 lambs were bred on the property, and an additional 2000 fattened off for market. At the same time 500 tons of lucerne chaff were disposed

      oŁ at a good figure

      For competition purposes each sheep is allowed five cwt of lucerne hay or Its equiva- lent in nine months This calculation is then referred to the carrying capacity of the holding and as this worked out it 1050 sheep for Benevento, Messrs Finn and Murray needed 262 1/2 tons. So ably had Mr Curry tackled the problem of conservation however that 420 tons of lucerne hay had been stacked against an emergency equivalent in terms of sheep to no less than 1680 head. Seventy tons of hay were stored in well built well protected stacks and 350 tons in a huge iron roofed shed. The hay was located in handy positions and its quality left little to be de-
      sired. [10]
