Governor J. A. O. Preus, addressing,
the convention, declared the creamery
association will be the greatest step
forward ever taken by thte dairy in
dustry of t!:e state.
The new agency aims to benefit ev
ery co-operative which joins it by
standardization and improvement in
quality, through cream grading and
proper manufacturing methods by
shipping and bargaining on the basis
of carload lots of butter and other
dairy products by service of experts
to assist in marketing on the princi
pal terminal markets and by co-op
erative purchasing, at wholesale
prices, of necessary supplies such as
salt, tubs and coal.
The plan adopted by the delegates
calls for placing experts on the Chica
go, Philadelphia and New York mar
kets to assist Minnesota shippers in
getting the best prices, accurate mar
ket information and fair freight rates.
It also calls for employing district
field men to assist the creameries
throughout the state in arranging car
lot shipments, standardizing their
products and solving all problems of
eo-operative marketing on a large
scale. Direct selling through the state
agency will not be undertaken for
The directors have requested the
Minnesota Farm Bureau federation to
assist in uniting the co-operative
creameries as members of the assoeia-
tion. They will receive the full co
operation of the farm bureau organi
zation from the state federation down
to township units. Centralization of
dairy, grain and livestock marketing is
the goal of the state federation.
Dairy Picnic June 22.
The Isanti County Holstein Breed
ers' association and the Guernsey
Breeders' association have gotten to
gether and are going to have a big
dairy picnic June 22, at the Edwin
Eastland place, one-half mile west of
Bodum and three miles south on the
Central avenue road and one half mile
east in section 16, Isanti township.
Everyone should provide themselves
'vith a picnic lunch and bring the fam
ily. A business meeting of the Hol
stein and Guernsey Breeders' associa
tion will be held at 11 a. m., and in
the afternoon, beginning at 1:30, Mr.
McGuire of the university 'farm, spe
cialist in dairy marketing, will give
an interesting talk on the plan to be
followed by the newly-organized Min
nesota Dairy Marketing association.
Mr. McGuire is very well known
throughout the state of Minnesota and
is a live, forceful speaker. In addi
tion to Mr. McGuire, L. V. Wilson of
University farm and secretary of the
State Guernsey association will have
something to say about Guernseys in
the state of Minnesota. Mr. Wilson is
also in charge of cow testing asso
ciations in the state of Minnesota.
This picnic will be unusual in that
the Guernsey and Holstein breeders
will be together. The committee
thought that the breeders were all
interested in the dairy business, and
as such their interests were mutual.
As a result they arranged to hold their
picnic at one time and therefore felt
that a larger crowd could be enter
tained and better speakers obtained.
The Guernsey and Holstein breeders
wish to extend a very cordial invita
tion to all farmers throughout the
county to attend this picnic whether
interested in the two breeds or not.
They also extend this invitation to all
business men in Princeton.
Rain Will Ruin Any Machine
It's a shame to see that valuable binder standing out
there in the rain today and the snow tomorrow when just
a few boards would protect it against the elements and pro-
long its life enough to pay for half a dozen sheds. How is it
with your idle machinery Just standing around just where
you last used it, or did you draw it into the farm yard to
rust and rot?
Why not stop the next time you're in town and take
home a "jag" of lumber for those much needed sheds?

KIM AND NYLAND, GOSPEL SINGERS
The purebred Holstein sale held on
the Peterson farm, south of Milaca,
June 8, was well attended. The bid
ding was dull, mainly due to the fact,
of ready cash. Several men there
were figuring on buying but, being un
able to raise the money, they were not
able to buy. The breeders were well
pleased with the distribution of the
animals sold, as most of them stayed
inside the county. Some went to
Koochiching countythe only cows
leaving Mille Lacs. It is hoped that
the tightness of money will loosen up
and that more people will take ad
vantage of the low prices of pure

with national reputation and knows
the purebreds from A to Z. For those
who do not know this man it might
be well to state that he is a breeder of

the breeding and feeding of cattle by
the sweat of his own brow, he is the
backbone of the Minnesota Holstein
association, and all who know anything
about Minnesota breeders know that
they rank second to none in the world.
