PROSPECTS OF SEASON + COMPLETELY CHANGED BY WEATHER BREAKING. The break of the weather during the past few weeks has ohanged tbp prospects of tbe 1915 Reason as far ap Banks Peninsula farmers are con earned. During the winter, and in fact all through last year, there was not a heavy downpour which has given the ground a thorough soaking, and the hot weather following a dry winter made the prospects of a good season this year look very gloomy The heavy rain of last week, how ever, and the lighter rains before and since, are now giving an ample supply of moisture. Besides, there seems to be a permanent break in the weather, which promises to have ended the drought. DAIRYING. This indicates a record dairying seasoi for tbe Peninsula, and mosfcof the factories are receiving a larger supply than last year. The increased prices ruling for butter and cheese indicate an excellent season for dairy men. The very dry spring has been most detrimental fco a number of dairymen, and after the shortage of teed in tbe winter, followed by the dry spring, a great number of cows were lost There should be no shortage of fe9d now, however. LAMBS AND WOOL. Tbe lambing season on Banks Peninsula bas been a record one, and there are some splendid averages re corded since tailing. The wool prospects are very bright, and shear ing has already commenoed, though no main flocks have been started. COCKSFOOT. The dry weather in the spring and the shortaga of feed made it impera tive to sacrifice most of the cocksfoot on Banks L'eninsula this year, and few owners were able to reserve their usual area for cocksfoot. It might not yet be too late to shut up some of the paddocks which have not been fed off too bard. The paddocks which were shut up in September, and were not too hard fed, are now coming away fairly freely, though, of course, the crops are bound to be very thin. The big shortage in the Peninsula crop this year Bhould make the price of .cocksfoot very high again this year, and seems every prospect that a record orice will be realised.
