    A long running periodical of notebooks containing useful and reliable information for sheep and stock owners. Owned and used by countless 20th century Australian pastoralists both for taking notes and as handy reference booklets. William Cooper & Nephews was a British sheep-dip company founded in England. It established Australian branches in the late 19th century and quickly became a leader of the Australian market. In response to an embargo on the import of ship dips in 1919, Cooper & Nephews commenced construction of a local livestock insecticide manufacturing plant in Exile Bay, Sydney.
