The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 22



It is a satisfactory feature to note, that the local manufactures of specialties, which the district requires in an increasing ratio, have not been overlooked. All kinds of compositions for destroying insect life on sheep have been imported into New Zealand, but there is a fair prospect now that the products of the two local establishments, and the only two in the colony, for the manufacture of an improved composition for destroying scab and other insects on sheep will be not only extensively used in Southland, but will be largely exported to other parts of the colony. Indeed, I am informed that these sheep dips are already being used amongst sheep farmers northwards as far as Hawkes Bay.
