Test Your Cows and
Keep the Best!-
                          SELL your culls and feed the rest. Loafing cows
    By Roy T. Harris        eat as much feed and take as much time to care
for as
    State Supervisor        hard working cows. We pay for them at every milking
    of Dairy Tests       and feeding time, yet they produce nothing but empty
                            Thousands of Wisconsin farmers are paying for
                          privilege of keeping loafing cows and do not know
                          But by joining the local Herd Improvement Association
                          they could easily prevent this costly loss and
make the
                          old herd produce more.
                            I know one farmer in Southern Wisconsin, and
                          are many others, who joined his local Herd Improvement
                          Association rather reluctantly because he thought
his was
                          the worst herd in the county. At the time he joined
                          was making a very small profit from his herd. Today,
                          his income over feed costs per cow is equal to
the income
                          from three cows kept six years ago when he first
                          a member I
                            Just as the Herd Improvement Associations have
                         helped thousands of farmers to make more money,
so your
                         Association helps you . . . Join it.
