Wisconsin bankers' farm bulletin. Bulletin 52: how, when and why--organize and standardize production PDF (940.5 KB)
THE PRODUCTION OF THESE SHOULD BE ORGANIZED IMMEDIATELY ! Dairy Cattle Live Stock-Township breeders' organizations to use pure bred sires of but one breed. Cow Testing Associations-To produce only high producing dairy stock. Tuberculosis-County organization under the new Wisconsin law making it possible to clean up tuberculosis in whole com- munities. These three moves will give us standard stock of a breed, high producing and disease-free. Dairy Products Through our many creameries and cheese factories we have made a long stride in improving our production of buttir and cheese over the former home made products. But we are still far removed from uniform quality, due to the fact that milk pro- duction is still carried on under thousands of various conditions as the fancy of the thousands of producers may suggest. So the butter or cheese you buy today is no guarantee of what you may get tomorrow. The Need What is now needed in Wisconsin most of all in butter and heese production is community organization of milk production in which every patron of a creamery or cheese factory will be following the same identical processes as every other in produc- ing milk. High producing cows, kept in well lighted, well ventilated, clean barns, turned out into clean yards, fed upon hay free from weeds and silage free from rag weed, grazed in pastures free from weeds, milked by milkers who carefully groom themselves and the cows, and the milk handled by people who are careful that all utensils and separators are washed clean after each use- these things are necessary to proper organization of agricultural production along dair lines and in this case, due to intimate onnection with the effects of bacteria it is absolutely necessary rhat every member of i producing community should be scrupu- lous about each and every process. To organize a dairy com- munity properly no careless or indifferent person should become a member. Just one such will make the product second or tlird grade stuff. Potatoes Perhaps in no other line has organization of production gone on faster in Wisconsin than in potato growing. 21J
