(DOES EVERY COW YOU'VE
Did you ever mado any calculations
to ascertain what profit you make on
the feed you give your cows? You
figure the profit on other investment,
why not test every cow in your herd,
to ice just what she pays as a milk
The day has come when only scien
tific dairying will pay. Rend what
they do in Denmark to cnab'c them
to keep only their best cows.
The Work of the Assistants
The assi&tants' make periodical vis
its to the farm of each memtocr of
the association, and spend a day at
each place. If the association has
twelve members, the testing is done
every fourteenth day, the testing wi'l
be done once a month, making due
allowance for Sundays. In every
herd of forty or loss -cows, the work
can be done in a day. Tf the number
"of cows in a herd is greater than
forty, two days are necessary. On
the other hand, if the farms are lo
cated c'oso together mid the. herds
are not too large, two herds may be
tested in a day.
The milk from each cow is care
fully weighed, sampled and tested,

Yield from 386 herds averages .. .6,600 to 7,700 lbs. .

Yield from 5 herds averages ...., 11,000 and over.
These herds were regular herds as
they were fond in the contry nnd do
not include any "fancy" herds.
The Work Extended
Recently many of the association
have found the ostein of keeping
records so instructive and profttab'e
that it his bum extended to inc'ude
other branches of fnnniing, such as
the raising of young stock, horses,
hogs, poultry, nnd 'the growing of
We shall be glad to give you fur
ther information respecting the org
anization of testing associations, cat-
both night and morning. From the
data obtained in thi way, the
number of pounds of feed and the cost
of same is computed for each cow.
These details are entered into a book
keipt for that purpose. Thus at the
end of the year, the farmer will have
a completed record of every cow in
his herd, and with this as a basis, he
can make intcl'igcnt selection of
cows for breeding purposes.
Some of the Results.
The first aim of the associations
ha$ been to make dairying yield bet
ter returns and to increase the. in
terest in dairying. Through an accur
ate record of the yield and feed con
sumed, the dairyman has an oppor
tunity to judge as to the present
profitableness of his herd, and as
these records, when compaicd with
others, at the same time, show where
improvement might be irvndc, they be
come of great importance. The prob
lem is then, to avoid the mistakes f
the past and to make such improve
ments as arc needed, and the records
The forowing tabic shows what
systematically kept records will ac
complish in the line of milk yield.

A medal, a. silver cup or a diploma
awarded by the AlaskarYukon-Pu-cific
Exposition in the live stock ex
hibit will mean quite as much to the
breeder as a cash prize and yet
these are not counted in the $03,501
offered as premiums.

stock will be gratified to know that
