What as commonly known as the
richness of miilk depends upon the
amount of butter fait lit contains.
There is so much difference in the
composition of milk from different
cows that many large butter and
cheese factories now test all ithe milk
they buy, and pay for it according to
its butter fat content.—‘Home and

A Big Milk and Butter Cow.
The college of agriculture at Colum-
bia, Mo., has a cow, Lullu by name,
that has shattered aill previous Short-
horn records. She gave last year 12,-
342 pounds of whole milk, which
tested 4.17 per cent butter fat. From
this was made 605 pounds of market-
able butter—all in one year.
Only think of it! This at only 30
cents a pound wouilid bring in for but-
ter alone $181.50 a year. At 40 cenlts
—whlieb is not unreasonable—lilt would
make $242 from one cow in one year,
besides several dollars worth of skim
milk and buttermilk.
LUlu surpasses an former records of
her class in butter by 111 pounds, and
in milk by 1,904 pounds. She is seven
years Old, and she came from a Chau-
tauqua, N. Y., herd of milking Short-
horns that averaged about, one pound
of butter daily. The American Agri-
culturist says: “The herd was bred
for milking purposes for over thirty
years, and this cow simply accentu-
ates the principle that continued se
lection allong definite lines can not
but end in marked improvement.”
Think what a herd of only twenty
cows like Lulu would bring in each
year. Iin milk and butter alone fit would
reach from $3,000 to $4,000, and the
Calves would run Sit up enormously—
say from $20,000 to $30,000 more.
Highly bred Cows certainly pay well.

NEATNESS AND GOOD WORK IS OUR MOTTO
Keeping Record of Milch Cows.
Prof. T. E. Woodward of the Utah
experiment station has the following
to say in the Utah Farmers’ Institute
annual in regard to Utah dairymen
keeping records of their cows. This
good advice should be heeded by ev-
eryone engaged in the dairy business.
They should know what each cow is
doing in the way of milk production:
“It is a fact to be togretted that so
few of the dairymen in Utah are keep-
ing records of their individual cows.
I venture to bay that there are not one
dozdn dairymen in Utah who have bn
accurate knowledge of the amount of
milk and butter fat produced by the
individual members of their herds.
This is a sorry state of affairs when
we consider that the dairy cow is kept
primarily tor what she will produce
and the only way to know this Is to
weigh and test the milk systematical-
ly. When it would be so little troub-
le for any one to find out just
each of Ms cows was doing, it
ing one or two days each month as in
the preceding. This method takes
less work both in weighing and re-
cording and in figuring up results.
If seems, however, thaJt farmers keep-
ing records in this way do not take aS
much Interest in their work as those
who weigh the milk daily. Then,
again, if a cow fails in her milk It is
likely not to be noticed for sever'al
days or until the next day for weigh-
ing. For these two last named reasons
we find that daily weighing is on the
whole more successful.
“Many farmers are inclined to think
before trying to. keep records of their
cows that there is too much work con-
nected with this and that the game is
not worth the candlle. as a matter of
fact, it takes only a few seconds to
weigh the milk and record the result.
With a small four-bottle tester lit is
possible to make twelve tests in one
hour wh'en a person has had some ex
perience. An expert can make «
greater number than this. Of course,
with a large tester the work can be
more rapidly accomplished. Another
objection which is sometimes urged is
the cost of the necessary equipment,
scales and fester. Scales will cost
from 50c to $3 a pair and a four-bot-
tle tester will cost $5. The chemicals
used in making the test will cost about
a tMrd of a cent for each test. Fuvl
directions accompany each machine
and it is not d/ifficuflt for any intell'i
gent farmer to do accurate work.
“What would you think of a mer-
chant who did not knbw whether his
business was paying or not, Who did
not know whether his sugar was han-
dled at a profit or at a loss, who did
not know how much his flour cost him
and how much he sold lit for? WOuid
you predict for him failure or success
in bis business? Yet this is precisely
the fix in which most of the dairymen
of Utah find themselves on the cow
question. Most of them know they are
making a little money, but practically
none of them knows which cows are
paying the profit and which are not.
It is idle for any one to say that he
can tell by guess and know where we

omiiy of value in that It enables us to
determine a cow’s production, but al-
so in that it lends interest to, the bus-
iness, and if a person is interested In
his work he is more likely to be suc-
cessful, for the reason that hfiW (work
is better performed. But this is not
all. The keeping of milk records ena-
bles us to tell when a Cow IS off feed
or sick in any way and because of
this we are oftentimes able to treat
her before the disease wals advanced
to such an extent as to become seri-
ous. Then by studying the milk rec-
ords and noting the amounts of milk
produced under different conditions US
regards feed and care, we are able to
profit by this knowledge and handle
our cows in such a way as to yield the
greatest returns. I have had experi-
ence in keeping records of cows and
am also acquainted with quite a num-
ber of dairymen who are keeping rec-
ords and so can say positively that it
iB a great success and is entirely prac-
ticable for the ordinary farmer.
