COL. YOUNG AND EMPIRE WORKS
The following extract from the Imperial food journal, dated eFbruary 23, 102 S, will be of interest to the farmers in this district: —“Lieut-Gol-onel T. Dunlop Young, chief veterinary officer of the City of London Co-op-eration, within whose jurisdiction 1 come Smith field, Leadenhall and Bill- - Markets, will sail on the s.s. rsova for Australia on the tour of infacilities to which he, has been invited spection of Empire meal production by the Governments concerned from Tilbury on March 31 next, and is due at Melbourne on May 7. After paying his respects to Ihc Commonwealth authorities he will proceed direct to New Zealand, where he hopes to visit oil the meat freezing works. Then returning to Australia, he will make a similar tour there. After lie will pay in second visit io New Zealand so as to be on the spot during Hie calf-killing
season. The lie he will sail direct io Vancouver. proceeding lo Calgary Winnipeg and Toronto. Later he will inspect meat works in New Turk. Ghicag'o. and other American centres. Mr S. u. G. Lye, managing director of Hu- Waikato and Thames Valley Calf By-Product Co.. Ltd., stales that this new export trade is entirely in the hands of ihe farmers to make or mar for all time, and very great care will need to he exercised in Ihe feeding given lo these calves during the few days that they are on Ihe farm: also care must be taken to see that the calves can stand the trip' from the
farm io Ihe works. Las! season a large- number of farmers allowed the calf lo stop with il mother for three days, and they have no! had as much trouble as formerly owing io the fact that during those days ihe cow was quiet and contented and nature had a chance io repair the damage that wascaused by Ihe delivery of Ihe calf. The gain by giving more attention to this business will be iwofold lo ihe producer—(l) it will stabilise the trade, and (2) il will allow the cow a chance to recover and thus put her in good form for a good producing season.
