W     ISCONSIN has been a leader in meeting the prob-
       lems of agriculture in production and manufacturing
  W T of dairy products.
  The Short Course in Agriculture was established in 1885
and since that time it has been an important factor in the
agricultural development of the state. Among its graduates
are many of Wisconsin's most successful farmers. The men
trained in the Dairy Course for butter making, cheese mak-
ing and city milk supply have done their part to make Wis-
consin a dairy state. Men of both courses recognize today
the value of a course giving technical knowledge, a broad-
ened vision of agriculture and an inspiration for the future.
They are boosters for these courses. Other winter courses
such as the Tractor course, and Nursery Salesman's course,
have been given. This circular also describes courses for
cow-testers, herdsman, seedsman, farm business, farm en-
gineering and poultry.
                   Equipment Modern
  The equipment of the College of Agriculture is thoroughly
modern and practical. The farm buildings stand for the
best types of farm architecture and the ideas represented in
their construction can be adapted readily to the average
farm. For years attention has been given to obtaining
breeds of livestock that will be representative and true to
type. The instruction in the Winter Courses is given by
the regular members of the staff of the university,
and the students have every advantage offered to the stu-
dents in the other courses.
                 Purpose of the Courses
  The primary purpose of the Winter Courses is to train
young men for the business of farming and its special jobs.
