AVERAGE BUttER OUTPUT DECLINES The more than 2,000 cows in the cow testing associations in Montana produced an average of 22.8 pounds o£ butter fat in November. Last June the average butter fat produc-1 *tion was 30.5 pounds. This great de-, crease in production is due primarily to the usual decline in production during winter months, but also re fleets the fact that too many cows are bred to freshen in the spring, says J. O. Tretsven, dairy specialist for the Montana Extension service. It may be impossible to maintain production at the same level through out the year, says the specialist, but it is entirely possible to greatly reduce Slump, However,. Is Seasonal-—-It Could Be Avoided by Breed' * ing To Freshen in Fall - spread that now exists be tween winter and early summer milk' flow. Cows bred to freshen in the spring approach the end of their lac- I tation period during the winter months. By breeding to freshen in j the fall dairymen would encourage • greater production at a time when ! butter fat prices usually are highest. | Thus, he points out, not only would production be maintained more uni formly throughout the year but total ■ cash returns would be higher. . 1 The Lewis and Clark Cow Testing i association had the highest average ! production during the month of No- j vember, according to Mr. Tretsven*s ; monthly summary, with 27.2 pounds 1 of butter fat, and 667,2 pounds of i milk per cow. The Lake County as- ! sociation was second and Yellowstone j county, third. The high individual producer for the month was "Miss Monte Silver ■ Homestead," a purebred Holstein | owned by the Green Meadow Farm of the Lewis- and Clark County associ ation. This cow produced 68 pounds of butter fat and 1875 pounds of milk. The mixed herd of George Wendt of the Fergus County association had the highest average among the herds of less than 15 cows in the state with a _ u , . j , , j / developed unexpcctcd defens,ve power on the part of their opponents, the Bobcats of Montana State college Saturday wort their first intercollegiate basket ball contest by defeating, on the local floor, the quint from the Montana Mines school of Butte.
