SYDNEY, Monday.—The inaugural conference of the Institute of Pastures Protection Board officials was opened to-day under the presidency of Mr. Valder (Director of Agriculture). Forty stock inspectors were present. It was resolved that in the interests of the officials employed under the Act an association be formed. The conference adopted a resolution affirming loyalty and its determination to insist in upholding the hands of those in authority in the prosecution of the war until a victorious peace is secured. The president said there were many diseases of stock which had not been specifically studied. Now that the Government had acquired an area of land for a stock farm he hoped that good results would be obtained. A competent staff would be attached to the farm, and its success would depend in a large measure on the cooperation received from the P.P. Board officials in forwarding specimens and helping the staff to determine the nature and extent of diseases and the best way of treating them.
