Thk Autumn Feed —The recant rains thnt have fallen in the PenineuU districts hav> ■een a boon to farmers who a month sgn 'lespttirfd of any autumn teed. There ap peered no chance of tbe dairying herds holding on as they usually do well into April, as tbe milk supply dropped so low in January. The rains which have fallen however, have improved r the supply from dairy herds or at leaslfthe herds have maintained their supply for a much longer period tha was anticipated. The great improvement in the grazing paddocks has also, lessened the anxiety cf dairy farmers, concerning winter feed and there is a fplendid growth every where which should last well in to the wim>
ter, while the coooksfoot paddocks have CDn. siderably improved. Grazing should not be so scare- 1 as thought a month ago. The rainfall has been patohy, however and although a plentiful enpply of rain baa fallen in most parts of the Peninaula, and only warm weather is required to keep on the feed, tbe rainfall in Pigeon Bay and along the north side of the Peninsula haa been meagre and more is required.
