It has been fully' demonstrated this year not only that corn is a profitable crop but that dairying produces money at every season of the year and in sufficient amounts to make the enter* prise highly beneficial and worth while. Less of the element of chance enters into the game of dairying than it does in the problem of exclusive grain raising and the cash returns are spread over the year in a way that materially benefit in reducing store bills and keeping the running expenses that under a single crop system will amount to such large proportions be fore the end of the crop season.
