Dairying.—An object lesson in dairying may be seen at Mintaro, Mr. A. M. Keane, of that town, has an eighty-acre section on which he keeps 20 milch cows, and finds there sufficient sustenance for them to enable him to work at a profit. True enough, the soil is peculiarly adapted to the growth of summer fodder. Mr. Keane has 16 acres under lucerne upwards of 18 inches and 2 feet in height, and several acres of the fodder recently sown is now showing above the ground. Running water is provided by springs on the property all the year round, and altogether Mr. Keane’s land is the ‘beau ideal’ of country suitable for dairying. A few more farms like it in the district and our output of butter would increase by leaps and bounds.
