Developing Dairy Cows.
Prof. A. M. Soule in Southern
.rm Magazine of Baltimore for
Some of the results accomplished
the development of dairy cows are
te short of incredible. For in
ee, Belle .Sarcastie, a Holstein
esian, yielded iii a single lacta
n period as high as 81.9 pounds of
Lak- per day, 554.7 pounds of milk
a week, 21,075.8 pounds of milk
a year and 632.7S pounds of fat
a year. Houwtje, another' Holstein
iesian, yielded 93 pounds of milk
a day, 62S.2 pounds in a week and
02 pounds in a year, equivalent
660.14 pourids of butter fat. Rosa
nheur, another- famous Holstein
iesian, gave 106.75 pounds of milk
aday, 726.23 pounds in a week and
033.5 pounds in a year. These cows,
re the property of the Michigan'
~rieultural Experiment Station, and
ile the milk was not rich in fat,
yields of both milk and butter
re, indeed, remarkable." The Hol
~in-Friesian, Shadybrook Gerben,
ampion in butter fat yielded at the
orld 's Fair at St. Louis in 1904,
ye 8101.7 pounds of milk contain
3.5 per cent of butter fat, or
D~.36 p@unds of butter in 120 days.
Y highest daily record was 80.0
unds of 4 per cent milk, and in
ren days she made 27.11 pounds of
tter. Records, however, are not
afined to any one breed. For ex
ple, the Jersey cow, Figgis, though
years of age, was grand champion
her breed at the St. Louis World's
ir. She has a butter test of 19
ands and' 15 ounces and 329
unds and 4 ounces of milk in seven
ys, and has given in one day 50.7
unds of milk, or 91S1.7 pounds in
months, which, according to the
licock test, would have made 347.6
ands of butter. Here was a cowga
ble of giving practically her body
ight in butter in the course of a
ir. Is it not marvelous that an ani
I should be capable of doing this?
den one considers that the average
ub cow in the country does not
ld more than 65 to 100 pounds of
tter, it is not surprising that
irying is often considered an un
fitable business. It is a far cry
>m 1000 to 2000 pounds of milk to
000 and from 65 pounds of but
fat up to 660 pounds.
