Many a furmer would go Into the

Dairymen practically all agree that a
greater total amouut of milk Is ae
cured when the cowa freshen In the

comes from the stimulus of fresh graaa

reached at the time pastures dry up.
Then aa the neutral tendency la for
the milk How to fall off, the change to
dry feed la made, which brlnga a fur

that have freahend in the fall are turn
ed oh spring pasture, and the flow kept
up for some time. Twenty per cent aa
the Increase In yearly production la
probably none too high an estimation
for the additional amount secured by
that practice.
Winter dairying haa other desirable
features on the small farm or on the
general farm where only a few cowa

The writer beard it remarked the

The white, hard, taateless character of
winter butter results from the food
