Fortieth Annual Report of the DAIRY FARM AT ANNAPOLIS. The Division is cooperating with the United States Naval Academy In equipping and operating a dairy farm to supply milk for that In- stitution. Grade Holstein cows will be used and the equipment is to be the best that can be provided within the limits of reasonable' economy, as it is the intention to make this plant an object lesson for visitors, especially those who are interested In sanitary and economical milk production. Such are the principal features of the work that is being done by the Dairy Division. The aim is to collect practical information and scientific knowledge from every possible source and place it before the farmer, the dairyman, the milk dealer, and the consumer; to co- operate with the state and municipal governments, with the dairy schools, and with all other institutions and organizations that are working to further the dairy interests and provide an ample and safe milk supply for the country at large. Recess to 1:30 P. M. The Convention met after recess at 1:30 P. M., the president In the chair. The Chairman: The regular work that this association is doing at i] present time, more than anything else, is the work of establishing - testing associations throughout the state, and we have here this atternoon the young men who are doing that work, and we will hear from a number of them, so that we will know exactly how that work is being carried on. Before they give their reports, however, we will listen to a talk on Barn Construction, by Mr. W. D. James of Fort Atkinson, who has set up in this hall a very beautiful model of a barn. BUILDING THE DAIRY BARN. By W. D. JAMES, FT. ATKINSON. Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: In responding to the call from Mr. Glover for a talk on barn construction, I did not realize the task before me; I am handicapped by not being a public speaker, but with your kind attention, I will endeavor to give you some of the facts that should be taken into consideration when building a dairy barn. The proper and economical erection of dairy barns requires more foresight and planning than is ordinarily given to their construction. I 4 : E t i : 64
