The Value of Cleaner Milk Does it pay to produce clean milkI It certainly does. Let Rogers tell you why. DIRTY MWIL SOURS EASILY "I am sorry, Rogers, but your milk is too dirty for us to use on our milk routes. It will sour before we can use it. We will pay you 20 cents under price, for it for our butter department." gI auess you don't want milk The condensery will take it," replied Rogers, as he rolled his can back on the wagon The condensery, however, refused to accept the milk be- cause it contabled over .2 per cent acid. Rogers was finally forced to feed to the pigs milk that if clean would have been worth $3 or more a hundred. This incident, which is a trie mne, occurs all too frequietly in almost every community. Because of it, the produeer loses money, the dairy produets plant loses business, and the public is robbed of a valuable food.

The inspection service costs these 12 cities over $306,000 an- nually. In 1915, 408 cities reported the use of city inspection. Undoubtedly Many cities employing milk inspectors failed to report.
