Suggestion?* for Judging- Dut ter nt
County mul Community .Fairs.
Tho bu tier exhibited at many of
the fairs is really a work of art and
should be included in such collec
tions rather than in tho butter ex
hibit. The pineapple-shaped curies
and that molded hy tho form ot
ducks, etc., really deserve to be
classed in the decorative art depart
nient, for too often tho quality of
tho butter.sacrificed to tho design.
Butter made for eating purposes dooSN,
not gain in quality by the addi;ional
handling necessary for forming it
into fantastic shapes. The package
should be noni, dean and ntlnntivo,
and tho butter well protected by be
ing securely wrapped in a good gr ide
of parchment paper. The han.;
should bo snell :i$ to allow it to eo
woll wrnppod. The quality of the
paper ?s very important because
poor grade is sure lo he torn and
worn off hy much handling. Good
butter should be especially w?ii
packed. Boiler of such qual iy as
lo be lit for soap grease only may
bo packod any wny- it ddes not mal
ter if it is exposed to dust and dies.
Tho main point to take into ac
count in judging butter are flavor
and body. These are by far the niosi
important. The flavor should lie rich,
sweet, clean, fine, mildly ncld and
the aroma should he pleasing, it
should not taste co'wy. cheesy, milky,
curdy, rancid, unclean nor highly
Dody and texture should ho good.
If tho grain is good tho butter will
break like a piece of metal-not
smooth, lt should not contain too
much moisture, nor should the brine
ho milky, and it should be free from
curd. It should be waxy and ,110t
greasy in appearance.
Color and salt should also bo ta
ken into account. Tho color most de
straille is that of June butter, lt
may vary from a very light to a me
dium straw color, or that produced
by natural grass. It should not be
streaked or mottled. The salt should
be well dissolved and just enough
bring ont the highest flavor.
Tho following score card will bo
helpful in arriving nt definite scores:
Hod y. 25
Color . 1 ?
Package . ?
Butter scoring '...""> an 1 above
should bo perfect in .'ill lilli flavor,
and that should bo most desirable.
For thal scoring 03 and '.1 I the total
delects other th n flavor--and this
must have no off or foreign flavors,
not over point. Ninety-two butter
can have bul ono point cut other
than flavor. This must still bo good.
