    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

      o£ 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. [15]

      Canowindra's Winner Specialises In
      Fat Lambs
      IT Is a far cry from the wheat fields
      of Trundle to the lucerne flats at
      Canowlndra, but the Judge's party saw
      on the one day those two extremes of
      country.
      Canowindra's winners were Messrs.
      Finn and Murray, whose property at The
      Rivers, comprising 350-acres of river
      flats (of which
      200-acres Is under
      lucernec!' Is one of
      the show places of
      the district, Mr, Tom
      Curry is manager,
      and has energetically
      watched the partners'
      interests for the past
      eight years,

      duct, and there Is
      none better than
      that produced on
      the property of
      Messrs, Finn and Murray, It naturally
      follows that the resources of the farm
      are concentrated on the production of
      lucerne, both for sale and as a fodder
      reserve for the sheep carried on the
      place, Just now the bottom seems to have
      fallen out of the lucerne market and
      fairly heavy stocks are carried awaiting a
      favorable opportunity of disposal,
      With one mile of river frontage, the
      property is splendidly situated for the
      productlon of excellent lucerne crops and
      last year, which was considered a bad one
      for lucerne, five cuts were obtained,
      While a good deal of it Is chaffed, a pro-
      portion Is hand-pressed Into small bales
      and sold as hay, This hay at present Is
      worth about 6 a ton In Sydney, The
      production of lucerne , seed, In normal
      times, Is a profitable sideline. A 50-acre
      paddock Is set apart for this purpose, and
      in a good season three bags of seed to
      the acre Is obtained, although for the
      past season the yield was only one bag
      to the acre, '
      Apart from cropplng such a property
      Is Ideally situated for fat-lamb produc-
      tion, dairying or plg-raislng, and a neigh-
      bor has set out to raise 5000 pigs a year,
      Messrs, Finn mid Murray are not In-
      eresled In pig raising or dairying, but
      they go In extensively for fat lambs, and
      take a keen pride In their fine flock of
      800 crossbred ewes and Romney Marsh
      rams, Some of the rams were secured
      from Major Hinton's stud nearby. Last
      season 500 lambs were. turned, off the
      property, but the your1 before the output
      was 1000 fat ambs, Mr.Curry declares
      that If It were not for concentrating on
      lucerne he could run 1000 ewes, on the
      Besides the sheep, ten horses abd eight
      head of cattle are kept and 20-acres Is
      under oats for green fodder, In addition
      to the area under lucerne,
      The carrying capacity of the land
      under natural pasture was estimated at
      three sheep to the acre, Stored fodder
      Included 488-tons of lucerne hay In a
      large shed and a number of smaller
      stacks) 40-tons of first-cut lucerne and
      barley grass as semi-silage, and 10-tons
      of maizo grain, This was regarded as
      sufficient for 2085 sheep over a nine
      months' period, and full points were
      awarded on the scoe of carrying capacity,
      Although points were dropped because
      the ration wan Insufficiently varied and
      the cost of production was rather high,
      Messrs, Finn nnd Murray made a com-
      mendable showing, and their collection
      of fodder Illustrated what can be done on
      a small holding In the way of conserva-
      tion, Their success should point the way
      In greater efforts in other districts,
