This new attempt at agricultural education seems to have boen accepted
with enthusiasm by cattle breeders throughout the state.    The school met
the first time in the spring of this year for a period of one week of lectures
and discussion.   A similar one week session was hold this fall.    Instruction
was given in genetics (Dr. Cole), endocrinology (Dr. Casida), and tho keeping
of dairy cattle records (Dr. Dickerson). Dr. McKenzie of tho University of
Missouri, Dr. Kondrick of the Bureau of Animal Industry, and Dr. Hoizer of
Ohio State  have generously assisted with the instruction.    The bulk of
attendance was formed by battle brooders, fur brooders, and cow testers.
In a similar fashion, Doctors Casida and Dickerson have boon carrying
breeding information to dairymen on their home grounds by moans of brooding-
schools out in the State4   Sories of three to four meetings in each of eighteen
Wisconsin counties have boon hold.
