General results to date on the Quality Milk Program:
      1. Greater interest on the part of Dane County dairy farmers in re-.
          gard to care and handling of milk, resulting in better quality
          dairy products produced at milk plants and cheese factories.
      2. More interest on the part of plant operators in checking up on
          quality of milk delivered to milk plant, creamery or cheese
          factory. Many plant operators Save more aid to farmers in car-
          ing for their milk on the farm. This educational program should
          result in better quality dairy products.

     The county agent assisted in the reorganization meeting of the seven
Dairy Herd Improvement Associations. Due to the war, the fieldmen who were
in charge of the associations marked with a * have enlisted in the service
of their country - thus depriving 112 farmers of this important services
This problem may be partly solved by bimonthly testing where one fieldman
can serve two associations and also by a closer cooperation with the Agric-
ultural High School departments offering a modified form of this service.
