BACTERIA IN THE DAIRY.
New Methods in Creameries as
sult of Use of Bacteria.
By Dr. E. G. Peterson. Oregon Agricultural
Creameries and dairies which are
run on any considerable scale now use
what is called a starter. A starter
is simply a growth of lactic acid bac
teria (bacteria which produce lactic
acid from the sugar in the milk) upon
some suitable frxxl, as sterile milk, or
beef extract. The starter is added to
the pasteurized milk or cream to pro
duce the right kind of change in the
milk or cream for butter and cheese
Usually the right kind of souring
occurs naturally, but it cannot be de

undesirable conditions that cultures of

The work done by the right kinds of

The culture is sent out in a small

which is next set aside until it coagu
lates, when it is added to cans of pas
The principle back of the use of the
starter is that of replacing harmful or
useless bacteria by those with the
[tower to produce exactly the right
sort of chemical change in the cream.
It is obvious therefore that a method
which would destroy all the bacteria
in the bottle» of milk which are to be
added to the cans for ripening pur
poses would be most desirable.
For this reason there has recently
been put into use a method of steriliz
ing instead of pasteurizing (pasteuriz
ing, of course, destroys only a certain
percentage of the bacteria present.)
The apparatus necessary in this oper
ation is a simple metal retainer of
some sort which can be connected with
the main steam supply of the cream
A simple boiler is sometimes
used. A rather close fitting lid on
this sort of steamer will allow a tern-
perature of 100 degrees C. inside.
Heating at this temperature for thirty
minutes on four successive days will
completely sterilize the milk in a
quart Ixittle. To this sterilized milk
is added the commercial culture of
lactic acid bacteria, which of course
rapidly multiply and after an incuba
tion of twenty-four hours may be add
ed to the cans of pasteurized milk.
In these operations loose cotton
plugs are us<s| to prevent the entrance
of the bacteria of the air into the bot
tles. In making transfers, or if for
any other purpose the plugs are re
moved, care must be taken to prevent
the plugs coming in contact with any
surface, which of course would result
in a contamination of the milk when
the plugs are replaced.
This meth<xl of handling starters by
means of sterilized milk has met with
success, and is recommended to those
who have the facilities and inclination
for its use.
It has been us<xl with en
tire success in the Corvallis creamery;
and results from outside the state, not
ably from Michigan, where it was
applied under the direction of the ex
periment station of the state, justify
its recommendation. It requires only
absolute cleanliness on the part of the
operator and attention to the details
of the operation.
The department of bacteriology of
the Oregon experiment station pro
poses to publish a bulletin on this sub
ject which will! give instructions for
the use and results of the use of the
sterile method of handling starters.
