"The Jersey cow is the best dairymen's cow,
and the dairyman's best cow."—Jersey Bulletin.
You ate turkey for Thanksgiving. Did you stop
to think if the cows had reason to be thankful?
Some people persist in feeding too much skim
milk to the calves, and then wonder why they
Some of the directions for milking that are
printed, causes a man who milks ten or more cows
every day to smile.
Farm Stock and Home says: "Dairying need not
imply abandoning wheat, but more wheat and less
acres." "Both bread and butter should be pro
duced on the farm."

It should not be forgotten that at the late spe
sial session of the Oregon legislature a bill went
through the senate by an overwhelming vote to
abolish the office of food and dairy commissioner.
As originally introduced the law provided for the
repeal of the pure food law as a whole. The mea
sure as it passed the senate would practically re
peal the pure food law as a law, as all of the pro
visions for the enforcement of the law require ac
tion on the part of the dairy and food commission
er. If the office of dairy and food commissioner is
abolished the law itself might as well be abolished
unless the law is so amended as to turn over to
some other person the duties which are now placed
upon the commissioner. —Oregon Agriculturist.
There is considerable Eastern butter masquerad
ing under Oregon labels in the Portland market at
the present time, but the native output has grown
so short that the imported article is not acting as
much of a drag on the prices, and best grades of
creamery will probably move up another notch be
fore the week is over. The present quotation is
55c for fancy creameries with an established trade,
while any good creamery will bring 50c. Dairy
runs between 40c and 50c, the latter being an ex
treme figure. Country store butter is more plenti
ful proportionately, and sells down as low as 30c,
although some of it will bring a shade more.—Port
Worth a Trial at Least.
Some three or four years ago a gentleman bought
a fine registered Jersey cow, a splendid milker, but
with the bad habit of sucking herself. He bought
the cow with the full understanding that she was
addicted to this habit, and paid only about half her
real value for that reason. He stated at the time
that he could cure her without any trouble.
The writer recently saw the cow and learned
that, by simply putting on the cow an ordinary
halter or bridle with a bit in the cow's mouth, for
a period of about six weeks after calving, she seem
ingly forgot her habit, and her owner has had no
trouble with her in that direction since. This
seemingly interferes little with eating and prevents
her in some way from sucking herself.
The writer knows of this having been success
fully tried with other cows also. Whether or not
it will effect a permanent cure in all cases I cannot
say, but being so simple it seems well worth the
trying.—Robt. R. McGregor in Jersey Bulletin.
