George ana John Discuss Cream
Checks And Other Problems
By G. Drost, Manacer of the American ,
The following conversation took
place on the road between American
Falls and Rockland, between two farm
We call them for the sake of con
venience John and George.
"Hallo George where ore you going."
"I am going to th' depot to send off
"Why. I Just came from town my
self and delivered a can of cream to
the Farmers Co-op. Creamery, i have
been sending there ever since they
"Well," George replyed, "I have
beard many things aboil' that cream
ery and T don't know which to believe,
now you are a neighbor of mine and
you could give me the straight goods
about that place. They tell me, that
they do not pay bu*. once a month, Is
"No, they pay twice a month .every
first and every fifteenth you get your
cheek for the cream you bave sent In
during the preceed'ng It days. With
other words, all cream sent In there
bet wen th first and fifteenth is being
paid for 15 days later, sn on the first
of the next month, and ail thot you
send In between th 3 Itttli and the last
of the month Is being paid for on the
15th of the next month '
"Well John, why this 15 days later?"
"You see George, the money they
get for the butter they sell, Is all they
have got to pay for the cream they
buy. It takes about Mini long to ge4
returns for their butler."
"I see, but do th»y pay as much
therp as they do anywhere else?"
"Bo far Gorge, I got Just a little over
market price all the time, and one
thing I can say for them, they give you
absolute the hone-it weight"
"Yes, hut how about the test?"
• "When I first started to send to
them r got a test of 45 per cent and It
has never verlod a great lot from that.
1 feel sure that they give me a right
test. Bo I tell you George, you do hh
you like, hut to put the whole thing In
a nutshell, this Is what I found;
"I have no shipping charges or any
other deductions, as 1 deliver rny
cream myself I always know that my
weight is right. My test is honest the
year around, no matter whether 1 send
one day or one year, my test is honest."
"f get hutter there In exchange for
butterfat. I got the full market price
and sometimes even more. And then
an other thing, I have my cows tested
every once in a whl.e, which does not
cob! me anything ami II gives me an
Idea of how my herd 1 h doing. And
besides all of that George, I am help
ing to build up a errmery of our own,
and some day and that day Is not so
far off, we will own that creamery and
branch out, Hint once we goi her paid
for, we will harvest th« fruits of our

said that the reason a farmer is so
helpless, when it comes to getting any
thing for what he produces is because
he stands all alone."
"Now I am going to Cooperate and
I am starting with that creamery and
bo far 1 can see the results are good
and In my favor. So now George 1
have got to be on my way, but If X
were you, I would give them a tryout
and not for only a week or so but stay
with It, I know they 11 make you more
money for your cows."
"Well, John replyed George, never
knew Just how they did things there
and I was a little airald of It, hut 1
am going to send this can down there
and try them out. So lont John."
"So long George."
And George is still with us.
