Wiwcolvin Dainjry Associaon. effort being made to secure a large attendax~e, we would not exact the two hundred membership guaranty. I am, pleased to say that every promise made by that committee has been amply fulfilled. I want to say also that I have had the honor of presiding over a great many gatherings, nad never in all my experience have I presided over a body that gave such per- fect attention and showed such orderly conduct without any effort on the part of the presiding officer, as has this audience, which has greeted us here from day to day. They have shown intelligent appreciation, and I believe that you will agree with us, that you have had some excellent papers and discussions. The members of the Asociation who come from abroad, some- times known as the "Old Guard," are more than satisfied with what Platteville and the surrounding community has done, and we hope that you are reasonably well satisfied with the program which has been provided for you here, and that this community will see beneficial results from this meeting. CHEAP FEEDS FOR OUR COWS. Charles L Hpll, Rosendale. In these days of sharp competition in all lines of business, any man who achieves greatness is either a manufacturer, or a financier. I take it for granted, that to-day any man who calls him- self a dairyman, is a financier, in that he has learned to "water his stock," but are we manufacturers, looking for every way of cheapening production. I was talking recently with one of the leading dairy author- ities of America, and he said that if it had not been for the psge of the anti-oleo bill, that dairy products would, by this time, have been cheaper than ever before, and that prices would eontinue, even now, to average lower year after year. m 151
