Billy Van Says Nebraska and Iowa
Destined to Be Best in
the World.
From Our Near Neighbors
Billy B. Van, star In comedy, row play
ing at tbe Orpheum, la also a star in the
milk business and while there la nothing
. In It for himself, he Is letting the people
of Omaha know that he knows something
about keeping milk sanitary from the
time jt is produced until auch time as It
reaches the consumer.
Both father and grandfather of Billy
T. Van were In the milk business in Hoi
land and there he took his first lessons
on sanitary production and sale of milk.
JIo has now developed one of the most
widely known and complete dairy farms
and plants in New England.
The Bl'ly B. Van dairy farm comprises
1.000 acres of New Hampshire land near
Van Harbor and lying1 along the shores
of Lake Sunapoe. a body of water having
forty-five miles of shore line. Here he
spends five months of each year looking
after his dairy Interests. Jlere the men
in his employ milk ninety cows, selling
the milk at the summer resorts scattered
along' the shores of the lake. His milk
routes ore not covered by wagons, but in
stead gasoline launches dally skirt the
shores of the lake, delivering the milk at
t the cottages, hotels and towns.
Twenty Cents Quart.
While Omaha people think they are par
ing high prices for their milk, none of
them pay anything like Bllty B.JVan gets
for the.'nnilk that he sells. Far his. cer
tified milk he gets amenta per quart and
Is nnalile to supply the demand.
For fifteen "years Billy B. Van haa been
talking better m'lk and better methods for
handling milk. He has, been playing in
Omaha all week and each morning, in
stead of lying tu bed and snoozing, he has
been up with the sun and 'out to the
dairies, watching- the production and
treatment of the milk. In his mild and
. kindly way offering suggestions. Tester
day he spent a goodly portion of tho aft
ernoon at the plant of the Alamlto Sani
tary Pauy company's new plant at Twenty-sixth
and Leavenworth streets, going
there Immediately arter tha matinee. At
the Alamitc Mr. Van did not attempt to
deliver a locfire, but ho cave-the offi
cer and employes a plain talk on milk
and how to handlo and care for it. Ha
spoke in the highest termB of the new
Plant, saying, "It la ono ot the best I
have ever visited and I have seen about
all of them lt the I?nited States.''
Following the visit to the Alamlto
plant, Mr. Van was the guest of the offi
cers at luncheon and In turn they were
.his guests at the evening performance at
the Orpheum. '
Greatest Dairy Country.
In his talk at the Alamilo, Mr. Van laid
stress upon the fact that In his opinion,
within a few years Nebraska and Iowa
will comprise the greatest dairy country
in the world, '-for here," he added, "you
have yerylhlng that is neceeeary. You
have tbe climate and the soli that will
produce the feed; you have the water and
the facilities for getting your products
Into remote sections where stock raising
may never bo profitable. However, you
have got to build vf your herds and learn
that It costs more 'to raise a grade ani
mal than It dees 'to raise a scrub. Buy
the beet animals that you can secure an!
never. let the .strain run down. If you
cannot afford to buy a herd of grade
stuff on the start, then buy one anlma! at
a time and keep on doing eo until you
have weeded all of the scrubs- out of the
Mr. Van spoke at considerable length
of tha importance of producing pore milk,
asserting that In feeding: milk-producing
cows as much care should be exercised
in keeping them healthy as looking after
the milk after It is taken from the cow
and prepared for sale to the customer.
