MAY FORM MILK TEST
W. W. HOWARD ARROUSKH MUCH
IVTIHFST AMONG FARMERS
BY PRELIMINARY Ht'RVEV.
A milk testing asiocintton to bo
organized among the farmer?, in the
vicinity of Ontario Is being promoted
by County Agriculturalist W.W. How
ard, and a preliminary suivc of
this section has given tauch oucour
agement to the movement. Over 400
cows for testing purpose i c;.n be ae
cured hy the association, and at tha
rate of $1.50 per he 1 per year,
would provide, ample f'wids for car
rying on the work. Tfet aaaoclatloa
will he based upon principles employ
ed hy other similar testing associa
tionn over the country.
A man to do the testing will be
employed, and he will devote his en
tire time to traveling over the dis
trict, and will test each cow once a
month. At the same time he will
weigh and ..,.ortion the feed for the
next thirty days, or ufftil the time of
hia next visit. The average of the
cows for the year will be made, and
in this maner It will be possible for
tiie owner of each row to know Just
how good hta cow Is and whether she
should be maintained In his dairy
herd, or fattened and sold for boot.
There is now about three hundred
such associations In the United Bute
Where they have been tried they
have been found very successful, and
In many places they have been In
operation , for years.
The territory that will be embraced
hy this association Is the Boulevard
section, the territory around N'yaaa
and toward Parma, and the Fruit
land Bench. Owners of over four
hundred cows in this section have
expreaaed a willingness to Join the
association. A meeting for tne pur
pose of organizing will be held about
ik. Ml t VaKpuaev Tito uu.i.ctu.
lliv ill nt n i coiuai; oeowvie-
tion will be organized with a presi

An O. A. C. Bulletin on the sub
ject or mtiK te ling gives tne ioiiow-
Variations In the fat content of
three per cent to six per cent of fat
with sometimes greater extremes
than these. Borne principles of
making the Babcock test are thus
, pointed out by the O. A. C. Exten-
j'on dl,y Piallata:
The milk should be thorough!
mixed by pouring from onr Of
nick.'t to another tw or three times
md samples taken at once It should
be tasted if possible with.in twelve
hours from the time the milk waa
ilruwn from the cow The cream
must be uniformly mixed with the
milk, which can be accomplished by
shaking or by pouring from one Jar
to another. If lumps of dry cream
or of butter appear they must be
melted by setting the Jar into warm
water. If the sample is sour and
contains lumps of curd these may be
destroyed by adding a knife-point full
of soda lye. shaking und let stain.
After thla treatment the sulphuric
acid should he added in small quan
tities at a time, since the chemical
action becomes violent. Both milk
und acid should be 55 to 7 0 degrees
1 wheitI.e test is made.
