OKAIN'S BAY.

A POOR COCKSFOOT CROP.

The oooksfoot crop promises to be a very small one indeed, under 500 bags Growers are employing no outside labour, as it will be easy to harvest all their own seed, As showing the shrinkage in the crop, as many as 7000 bags of seed have been turned out of Okain's Boy, and the average j yield may be taken as between 4000 and 5000. The individual crops are very poor indeed. It is true that each year farmers have gone into dairying more, and a smaller acreage baa been shut up for cockfoot, but even allowing for this the orop is a very poor one, Tbe dry weather is affecting the supply of milk to the Okain's Dairy Factory, and the day's milk is down to 1200 callous, equivalent to 1£ vats, as against i vats at tbe beginning of the season. The dry weather is not only reducing tbe feed of the stock to a minimum, but drying up many springs, so tbat the stook are not; getting as much water as they should.
