NEW DAIRY RECORD
The Guernsey cow "May Kilma
227(51," owned and bred by Capt. E.
B. Cassatt, at his famou9 Chester-
brook Farm, Berwyn, Pa., has just
completed her official year's work.
The making of large records and
the possibilities of the dairy cow to
yield maximum results at the pail is
a matter of more than passing inter
est to her owners. The producer
wishes to know the cost of production
and if his margin of profit is being
increased under better methods.
The consumer also, regardless of all
breed questions, hopes it may mean
to him better and cheaper milk, for
he it is who in the end pays the bill.
Whether it is a Guernsey, Holstein or
a Jersey that holds the pennant for
production simply shows which breed
is making the most progress aloDg
scientific lines and showing results.
The name of the cow, the breed she
represents and her wonderful record,
should be known by all as a matter of

and a member of the Dairy Division
of the United States Department of
Agriculture, have sent representatives
to conduct tests for the club and
How to Produce Clean Milk
With our high-priced farm labor, high-priced land
and high-priced feed, it becomes necessary to bring
the EFFICIENCY of farm labor up to the highest
Also it is difficult to make any money in the dairy business
unless you get the largest amount of CLEAN milk at the least
cost to you. CLEAN MILK brings the high price.
You can neither secure the highest efficiency out of your farm
help nor the CLEAN, wholesome milk that brings the good prices
unless you install a good milker like

Haven't you had a sufficient amount of
trouble with men milkers quitting at the
wrong time or complaining about this
thing and the other, to be willing to be
shown what this mechanical milker will
We recommend the B-L-K MILKER as
the one you want and the one that will
make money for you and with less trouble
if you milk twenty-five or more cows.
