H..N. Colman, Supervisor of Official Tests for Oregon, of
the Oregon Agricultural College, Furnishes the Official
Records Brought Down to Monday, December 10th
A Work That Requires a Great Deal of Care and Ab
(The following article has beenlbility does not stop with the act-
furnished for this Slogan number
of The Statesman by. H. N. Col
man, Supervisor of official tests
for Oregon; connected with the
Oregon Agricultural College. The
records are brought down to Mon
day, Dec. 10th; and are therefore
right down to date; the latest
complete information to be pub
lished anywhere. Mr. Colman
i3 working on the standings of the
animals in the other dairy breeds,
and they will bo brought down to
date ready for publication by
Official testing may be defined
as a test for milk and butterfat
production under the supervision
of a qualified Representative of an
agricultural college or experiment
station for a" definite period of
time. Each breed association hag
divided its records into classes ac
cording to ago placing different
requirements for these various
classes. All records for Oregon
are conducted under the supervis
ion of the Oregon Agricultural
College. ' :
Many breeders do not realize
the responsibility the OFCgon Ag
ricultural college has in the of
ficial lest work in Oregon. It is
the duty of the Oregon Agricul
tural college to pee that the milk
record is actually of, the milk pro
dncod during tho test period, to
see that each milking is properly
and accurately tested lor Its but
ler fat content, and to, make. a
complete report to the respective
breed ossoclation. Its rcsponsi-
owned by I'ickard 15ros.. Marion,
Marion county, Oregon.
The .Salem district now has the
world record Jersey tow. She is
Darling's Jolly I-as.sie, owned by
Pickard T.ros. She produced
11 11. -8 pounds of butter Tat in
her year's tet. She. is trawling
up towards the 1200 pound mark,
. ia . . . i..
ual testing, however, for the name
of the Oregon Agricultural col
lege is signed to each test report,
vouchsafing to the public that such
test is accurate. Thus indirectly
is signed the name of each tax
payer supporting the college. To
protect such records all official
test work is governed by certain
rules and regulations. The exper
iment station and agricultural
colleges working throujih the
American Dairy Science associa
tion formulate these rules. It is
therefore the duty of each repre
sentative of the Oregon Agricul
tural college conducting official
test to follow the rules, and it i3
the duty of each breeder doing
official testing to sco that these
rules are carried out.
The purposes of official: testing
an (1) to secure information
whkh can be used in the selec
tion of animals for breeding pur
poses, with a view to improvement
of offspring: (2) to demonstrate
to the public the improvement
which has been secured through
selection and breeding. Official
testing is carried on at this time
under two general typs of tests,
namely: 1 YEARLY, where tbc
supervisor ia present at every
milking, for one or two days each
month (depending upon the
breed) weighing and testing the
milk. This test is U3ed in all
breeds. It is spoken of as a
semi-official test by tho Holstein
and Shorthorn breeds. (2) SEVEN-DAY
OR LONGER, where the
supervisor Is present as above for
at which Oregon Jersey breeders
are shootir.?. It will be reached;
pcThnps not soon, but finally, and
by a Salem district cow.
Said and Itcpratrtl
For, as The Statesman has said
and repeated many Jimes, the fu
ture world records for production
of Jersey cows will be made by Sa
seven or more consecutive days.
This test is used only in the Hol
stein and Shorthorn breeds. This
test is spoken of by these breeds
as an official test.
The benefits to be realized
from official testing may be sum
marized as follows: (1) It pro
vides a basis for proper selection,
breeding, and feeding sb essential
for developing a high producing
and profitable herd. (2)It in
creases the value of the cow, her
offspring, and other relatives. (3)
It stimulates personal pride in the
development of the kind of dairy
stock which will improve the
In order to aid in having well
trained and responsible men for
positions as herdsmen and as su
pervisors of tests the Oregon Ag
ricultural college is giving a
