NEW DAIRY RECORD The Guernsey cow "May Kilma 227(51," owned and bred by Capt. E. B. Cassatt, at his famou9 Chester- brook Farm, Berwyn, Pa., has just completed her official year's work. The making of large records and the possibilities of the dairy cow to yield maximum results at the pail is a matter of more than passing inter est to her owners. The producer wishes to know the cost of production and if his margin of profit is being increased under better methods. The consumer also, regardless of all breed questions, hopes it may mean to him better and cheaper milk, for he it is who in the end pays the bill. Whether it is a Guernsey, Holstein or a Jersey that holds the pennant for production simply shows which breed is making the most progress aloDg scientific lines and showing results. The name of the cow, the breed she represents and her wonderful record, should be known by all as a matter of dairy history. May Kilma produced in. 365 days from May 1, 1913 to May 1, 1914, 19673 pounds milk and 1073.41 pounds but terfat; nearly 10 tons of milk and the equivalent of 1260 poiinds of but ter. Her work has been carefully super vised under the Advanced Register regulations of The American Guernsey Cattle Club, whose headquarters are at Peterborough, N. H. Pennsylvania Experiment Station officials have conducted the regular tests through out the year; seven outside Institu tions from as many noted dairy states, and a member of the Dairy Division of the United States Department of Agriculture, have sent representatives to conduct tests for the club and How to Produce Clean Milk Profitably With our high-priced farm labor, high-priced land and high-priced feed, it becomes necessary to bring the EFFICIENCY of farm labor up to the highest point possible. Also it is difficult to make any money in the dairy business unless you get the largest amount of CLEAN milk at the least cost to you. CLEAN MILK brings the high price. You can neither secure the highest efficiency out of your farm help nor the CLEAN, wholesome milk that brings the good prices unless you install a good milker like THE B-L-K 1 Mil ICFR Haven't you had a sufficient amount of trouble with men milkers quitting at the wrong time or complaining about this thing and the other, to be willing to be shown what this mechanical milker will We recommend the B-L-K MILKER as the one you want and the one that will make money for you and with less trouble if you milk twenty-five or more cows.
