SOUTHERN WIS. C11EESEMAKHRS' & DAIRYIMN's ASS'N. 01} Winter Dairying compared with Summer Dairying. Dallas E. Davis, Monroe, Wis. Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen: Why the task of comparing winter an(l summer dair vin- should be given to one so young and inexperienced in the business, I (1o not understand, because there are many farmers in Southern Wisconsin, who not only have been to the school of experience for many years, but have trimmed and tried theories until they have worlied them out into successful practice. On the hand four years has been allowed me te gather up a herd of dairy cattle and to try out winter and summer dairying. Therefore what I shall sav ma! contain more or less theory, and how valuable this will be to you my fellow dairymen depends upon how much of this theory will stand the scourge and trimmings of intelligent and careful practice. When we begin to talk about winter dairying it means intensive dairying. Intensive dairving means dairv farming governed by good business principles. Dairying is no longer something we have to (1o because we keep cows on the farm and cannot get along without milking them and disposing of the product, but is one of the best, most clean cut business enterprises in the United States. It gives the broadest field for thinking, and if governed by brains and business principles returns a good net profit for the energy expended. Dairying of any kind naturally resolves itself into three parts.
