The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 72

Disseminating Information for Farmers

Disseminating Information for Farmers.

The Revising Committee reported on this subject—"It is desirable that a better system for collecting and disseminating information on agricultural, pastoral and other industries connected with the soil should be adopted, on the line of the Agricultural Bureau of South Australia."

In connection with this subject Mr Bradey moved, "That in the opinion of this Conference it is desirable to collect and obtain all the information possible in connection with the management and treatment of land, sheep and stock in general within the Colony. That the various agricultural and pastoral associations in the North and South Islands be asked to assist in the above object. That all such information so obtained be submitted to Mr Ritchie, of the Stock Department, with a view to have all that is considered useful advice to settlers published in pamphlet form."

The resolution was seconded by Mr Seon, and carried.
