"One of the great made in Montana was when the peo ple of the state voted down the meas ure last fall which was intended to help those who are right now suffer ing," said Mr. Story, "and it is just such action as this which has given this state a bad reputation from an agricultural standpoint. That meas mistakes ure, had it been passed by the peo ple. would have made it possible for the irrigable land in the state to re •ceive the financial aid it needed. It would not have added one cent to the taxes of the people of the state, but would have made it possible to pro duce many millions of dollars' worth of products and in that way the state would be in a position to help the worthy farmer. •> Those present at the dinner were Dr F.

MARKETING METHODS USED BY CREAMERY (Continued from Page One). porations. As a rule the stock com ■ any creameries purchase the butter fat from the farmers outright at a price based on a recognized whole sale butter markets like Chicago and New York. Sometimes they will pay the farmer the average price for but ter less a fixed manufacturing charge of from two to four cents per pound. It is the general custom among the these creameries in Mates to recèive the raw materials hen manufacture sell and the finish ed product at the best possible price. At the end of the month the cost of manufacturing and other operating expenses plus a small sinking fund deducted from the gross'return °* ,ales. The net returns are then pro rated among the patrons on the basis of the number of pounds of butter fat delivered'. This plan is perfectly fair to all patrons but is not so satis factory as the more modem plan of paying market prices for the cream each day and then at the end of the year pro-rate back to each patron the surplus they may accumulate each month. This plan enables the farmer to realize on the product that may go onto storage for a short period It is customary for local co-oper ative creameries to require the farm er to deliver his milk and ceam or to pay the cost of collecting. Pamers' Bulletin No. 690 shows that reports from 126 creameries in Wisconsin in dicate that 71 creameries include the cost of collecting in the operating ex are prfcnse, while 54 charged the costs of collecting to the patron. The cost of collecting varied from half a cent to 4-6 cents per pound of buttefat, with an average of about 1-7 cents. The patrons of many local creameries in Minnesota have organized "rings" of two or more farmers in wh : ch each takes his turn in hauling. This plan gives each member full benefit of a delivered price. At about 20 per cent of the creameries, all or pai*t of the cream is gathered by routes, the av erage length of which is about twen ty-three miles at a cost averaging 2.7 cents per pound of buttefat. In transporting of cream by rail way to 40 centralizing creameries the average express cost is reported to be 1.6 cents per pound of butterfat. However, this does not include the cost of the farmer of getting the cream to the railway station, which would naturally be about equal to de livering the same cream to a cream ery. A large number of creameries have recognized the relation of first grade cream to the securing of a high grade butter so have tried to encourage the cooling of cream on the farm and to encourage more frequent deliveries by paying a lower price for off fla- vored. second grade cream. Two grades are usually employed with a cut of prevailing market prices of two to five cents per pound of butte- fat on all second grade cream. The results from eight creameries that grade the cream and churn the grades separately show an average increase in price of 3.6 cents per pound /or# the butter churned from the first grade creame. This is the only safe and proper way to conduct a creamery in these days of keen competition on the butter markets. There are 811 co-operative cream cries in Minnesota. About 80 per cent of them pay their patrons once a month and 16 per cent pay twice a month, while the frequency of pay ment varies with others. In Wiscon sin reports from 250 creameries show 48 per cent paying monthly, 35 per cent paying semi-monthly, and the rest daily or weekly. The more mod ern way is for the co-operative creamery to pay market price for butterfat daily then at the end of the year apportion the extra dividend to each patron on a patronage basis. The advantages are the elimination 'of delay in sending out the checks as it is not necessary to wait for re turns on the butter then it gives the manager more range in changing, prices to meet competing buyers in the same locality.
