OTAGO FARMERS’ CO-OPERATIA’E ASSOCIATION. On© of the most interesting and wellarranged exhibits is that of (ho Otago Farmers’ Cooperative Association of New Zealand Ltd., who have spared neither trouble nor expense to make their display as attractive and instructive as possible* The stand is enclosed with various styles of Pittsburgh elcctricallyweltled fencing, and the challenge offered by their representative to all the farmers to break on© of these welds is being readily accepted, but without success to the competitors. In a small paddock fenced with the- Pittsburgh, oleotricallywelded fencing a number of healUiy-look-ing sheep are, seen, clothed with covers manufactured in the firm’.* own workshop. On the covers Belfast dip and ffockmaaler's friend branding paint (for which the firm are agents) are advertised in a novel way. The Marvel daily machine, tho only one of its kind in the world, is a recent Canterbury invention, and is being shown for tho first time in Otago. This wonderful machine, which consists of a separator, cooler, churn, and butter worker combined in one machine, is causing a great deal of attention. It is simple in construction and very easily managed and cleaned, and should prove itself a boon to tho small dairy fanner. The “ Perfection ” seed grader and cleaner, which is being worked and explained by tho inventor, is just the kind of machine required by the farmer who is anxious to sow only good, clean seed. It is a strongly-built machine, supplied with 27 outsets of riddles which will clean and grade any kind of grain or seeds grown on the farm. The double knocker which is attached to this machine keeps the bottom riddles from becoming choked and clogged, and fanners who have had anything to do with the cleaning of grain and seeds will understand what a great deal of time and trouble ie saved by this improvement. Sykes’s veterinary remedies and instruments, which have been the moans of saving thousands of pounds to the farmer of this country, are hero shown, and include the following :—Sykes’s drench, animal ointments, abortion and mamitia cures, abortion, mi lie fever and ndderine outfits, Domo separators (for which an open challego was issued recently to all other makes, hut not accepted), are hero shown in full working order. Tho latest self-balancing howl “Domo” separator is n compact machine, well worthy of inspection and very reasonable in price.
