If this is properly done, J claim the butter is now ready to work and pack at once. In the foregoing I said Ashton salt. If Onondaga F. F. salt or any other good salt had been used in the same manner, I doubt if any expert could tell the difference any time after the salt was fully dissolved. But if the butter had been massed before the salt was added, it would have to be worked in, which could not be so perfectly done as in the gran- ulated state; consequently the butter should stand from twelve to twenty-four hours and reworked with considerable labor or the butter would be streaked. Upon this plan the salt would be fully dissolved and largely worked out in the brine and the butter wepld not be salted enough. The Ashton is a coarser salt and perhaps would not be so fully dissolved and remain in the butter. I am ashed that butter should be salted about one ounce to the ppund with good dairy salt, put in the butter while ia the granulated state in ome way that will incorporate it evenly through the ma of buf* ter, and worked and packed at once. I v butter but little, but pole it solidly in ash tubs and exclmd it from air at all times much as possible. Experts in buyipg butter desire a moit but- ter -they like to see the little clear drops of brine on the tryer. which will always be found in butter packed immediately after the salt is put in. Salted and packed in this way the salt remains in the butter, it weighs no less, and is more satishatory. When re- worked in twelve to twenty-four hours, the salt dissolves and is worked out, producing a dry butter which is objectionable, mad not salt enough if only one ounce of salt was used to the pound. President Beach -It is now time to adjourn for the banquet which the good people of Sheboygan Mve propared for the mem- bers of this association. We are to have singing, toasts and speeches. Mrs. J. L. Moore will read a poem, and when the banquet is over, there will be dancing. The convention now stands adjourned until to morrow morning at 9:30 o'clock. 88
