feeds are based on prices quoted Janusiy, 1914.
     Cows which give milk rich in butterfat should receive the larger
amount of grain. Often the difference between a good and a poor
cow is the difference between a good and a poorly fed one. A hard work-
ing dairy cow should have from six to eight weeks of rest. During this
time her ration should not be cut down f6r she should be given an oppor-
tunity to get into good physical condition for her next lactation period.
     A higher and cheaper production of milk is made possible with
proper equipment. A separate stable or building where attention can be
                       given entirely to the production of milk should be

to pay high prices
for their feeds and

Means More Money   milk means an increase in its consumption and in
                      the consumption of all products in the manufacture
of which milk is employed. Increased consumption and a clean product
means a rise in the price paid to the producer.
     Simply following a few fundamental rules overlooked by most dairy-
men would increase the cleanliness of milk 100 per cent. Clean udders
and careful milkers are two of the most essential factors in clean milk
production.
