SCHOOL FOR DAIRY
AND CREAMERY MEN
Missouri College of Agriculture Has
Special Short Course In
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
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.
