MILK TESTING.
find the average test by adding the four tests together
and dividing by four.
A. 8,230 lbs. milk. Average test for month 3.15 =259.25 lbs. fat.
B. 3,564   " '-              -       4.075=145.23
C. 2,720                             4.325=117.64  "   "
Total 14,514 lbs. milk.               Total 522.12 "  "
N. B.-We find that in this case we have nearly one pound of fat
more for the total. By inspection we find that A. has nearly one
pound more than in the former statement. While B. has a trifle less
and C. has a trifle more.
  Of course if cows vary very widely in test and in
milk yield from week to week, we would recom-
mend   the   'tcorrect way."    But for general prac-
tical purpose the incorrectness of this "practical way"
is so slight, and labor saved in figuring so marked
that most any one will be justified in using it.
