Vivian's Tryon Cafe Good food - Homemade pies - Friendly atmosphere Farmers And Merchants Bank Supporting the Tryon Community with Complete Banking Service C&S Grocery A complete line of groceries, produce and Meat Hinkle Hardware Your Neighborly Farm and Home Store Around The Farm Allan Wall During the past two week, an Australian named Terry Shea- les, has been visiting the George Hardi~'s south of Perkins. He left yesterday (Wednesday). Terry is on the last leg of his nine month trip around the world. He has been in Japan, U.S.S.R., Hungary, Germany, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Canada. He is now in file last country of his trip. In an interview with Terry I fotmd out that the trip is paid for by a bank in Australia. He was the winner of the 1973 Rural Bank Star award. The winner is chosen by a bank In New South Wales and receives a trip around the world to the countries of his choice. When he redeived the award, Terry was a member of the Rural Youth Organization, the equivalent of the American 4-H Club Organization. He is now 26. A junior , member of the~ Rural Youth Organization is from ages 10-18 while a senior member is from ages 16-25. The USDA finds 4-H families for Terry to stay with while he is in different partsofthe United States. However, in Perkins, Terry planned ahead to stay with the Hardins since he had met their daughter, Patsy, in 1972 while she was in Australia on a 4-H Teen Caravan. Besides working for the Australian Federal Government in the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, he manages a farm in New South Wales. On his farm he has around 1500 sheep.and 40 beef cattle. His ewes are Merino, a breed with fine quality wool, and his rams are Border Leicester. He shearshis sheep in Sep- tember and usually gets ten pounds of wool per sheep. HIs cattle are Hereford, and he sells both his sheep mud cattle at auction for slaughter. In addition to stock, he farms 500 acres of wheat and bar- ley. He also has 600 acres of grass on which he pastures his sheep and cattle. In the winter he pastures his barley. He plants his crops in May and harvests in December. Since Australia is south of the equator their seasons are exactly opposite of those in the United States. The farm's only tractor is a 70 horsepower Massey-Ferguson imported from England. It is a model 179. Terry said that the season with the most moisture is win- ter, which is May through October In Australia. The average rainfall in New ,SOuth Wales is about 20 inches comparable with about 34 inches in our part.of Oklahoma. In comparing Oklahoma agriculture with Australian agri- culture, Terry says that with the milder climate, the agriculture in Australia does not depend so much on the weather as in Okla- homa. The winter is warm enough that they don't have to put up hay for their c~ttle and sheep. Terry is very good at throwing the boomerang so that it will come "back to him, an art which few white people can mas- ter. He brought a boomerang with him and demonstrated throw- Ing it in a circle of about 70 ft. in diameter. Tomorrow and Saturday there will be a poultry show at the fairgrounds In SHllwater. The show includes poultry, rabbits, and pigeons. There will also be a judging contest. On November 29, a pecan show will be held at the Payne County courthouse. There will be pecans, seedlings, walnuts, and pecan bread, cookies, pies, and candies. Entries are due at 7:30 a.m. Further details are available at the County Exten- sion office.
