| ~Winter Courses inl | ~~Agriculture 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.
