DAIRY COW IMPROVEMENT
County Agent Says There is Much
Room for Dairy Cow Improve
ment in County
There is a big chance for improve
ment of our dairy cows found on the
average farm in Kandiyohi County.
Some farmers have made rapid im
provement in their herds during the
past few years and have made good
financially by so doing. Most of these
places have made their progress by
a healthy growth which was paid for
by the cows as time went along. This
is the proper method for expansion.
The farmers that have been improv
ing'along this line have not been ex
ptriencing the difficulties financially
thivt many others have during the
past three years. For this reason
some bankers and enthusiastic indi
viduals have been advising farmers
to sell their cows and go somewhere
else to buy better dairy cows for the
purpose of going into dairying. In
some cases this is good advice but
it should not be app'lied to every in
dividual.- Lets consider the dairy
cow as a machine. When we buy a
new machine the old one is turned in
for what we can get and it is nec
essary to pay the difference. The in
creased depreciation, interest and
risks must be taken into considera
tion. Without changing conditions
will it pay? If it will not pay, can we
afford to make the change? Along
with better dairy cows, to get any
marked improvement it is generally
necessary to feed better, house bet
ter, and give better care. By con
sidering the above and doing a little
figuring it does not seem advisable
to sell old bossy for $30 and buy an
unknown dairy cow for $100 arid
give her the same treatment that
old bossy had, the straw pile, slough
hay and ice water. Our experience in
Kandiyohi County with dairy cows
picked up from other places and im
ported have not always been altoge
While we are on the cow discus
sion, it is in order to say that the
fellows in our county who have pick
ed up what appeared to be bargains
in females, at the stock yards in So.
St. Paul and other yards, have as a
rule been very much disappointed
when they tried to develop this stock
into a dairy herd. Just stop to think
what you and the neighbors are ship
ping to the stock yards in the line
of females. Farmers in other pla
ces are doing the same thing. When
a cow is to be disposed of, if she is
good, some neighbor is ready and
willing to pay more for her than she
wil'i bring on the market. If she has
been condemned by the farmer be
cause she is a poor producer, non
breeder, bad udder, hard to milk, off
condition, perhaps diseased and. is
shipped, let some one have her for
the cans, leather, tankage, etc.
Real good dairy cows are always
good property and in demand. Our
best local dairymen are not anxious
to part with their best cows, but they
often have heifers or good cows that
they will part with at a reasonable
/price because of lack of room or
help. If you want a few good dairy
cows get in touch with some of these
cow men that are making good and
see if you can pry loose a few of
their good female stock. If you can
not find what you want tell your tro
ubles to the county agent and get
him to help you.
