SCHOOL FOR DAIRY AND CREAMERY MEN Missouri College of Agriculture Has Special Short Course In Dairying. Columbia, Mo., Nov. SO A course which will prepare a man for a posi tion in any kind of dairy work will open January 4 at the University of Missouri. It is a special short course in dairying to last seven weeks. It will cover "very phase of the work. The efficiency of the instruction given is shown by the fact that almost all of the men who have taken the course in the past are doing dairy work now. Some are managers of private dairies, some are testers in cow testing asso ciations, some are buttermakers in creameries and others are makers of ice cream. Men who studied dairying in this course have taken the highest prizes in the Educational Butter Scor ing Contest held at Columbia. The course has classes in receiving, nanuing, grading, testing and pas teurization of milk. Theory and prac tice of churning, the study of the fac tors influencing overrun, moisture and percentages, the making of ice cream, and marketing are other subjects studied. The student is also given a chance to study the production side of dairying. He is taught the care, handling and feeding of the dairy herd. At the University of Missouri the student gets his instruction in dairy ing under actual working conditions. He spends half of his time practicing the best dairy methods in the best managed dairy in the state. P. M. Brandt, superintendent of the short courses will send out announce ments giving cost of board, fees and other information to any one who writes to him.
