Dear Sir—We would like to have
the creamery patrons report the num
ber of cows in each herd to the haul
ers. As we desire to make a table of
cows and the average amount of but
ter lat produced by each cow in any
herd. This report could be at the
annual meeting and may be of in
terest in making comparisons. There
has been considerable speculation in
the past as to which creamery is turn
ing out the most and the linest butter,
why not mix up the daiymen in the
business and get down to the real
thing. There is considerably more
difference in comparing different
herds than creameries, relatively
speaking, aud a yearly report ot same
like the creamery report, may lead
to a better understanding all around
and help herds which would make
a'creamery patron a satisfied patron
without regard to any creamery. The
hand seperator has enlarged the scope
of the creamery, reduced the price of
hauling aud lerseued the work and
expense at the creamery, liut they
have brought outside competition in
to contact with the creamery. Let
us make intelligent comparisons ac
cording to established rules as laid
down by law and custom. Better
herds, careful attention to feeding
and selecting cows and a more
thorough organization would defy
any competition which a co-operative
creamery may meet. Respectfully,
