HOW iionli COWS PAY.
It is well known that dairy cows,
to be profitable, must bo compara
tively large producers, yet few peo
plo reallte the remarkable rate at
which Income advances as production
Increases. Tabulations of 6.687 cow
testing association records from var
ious parts of the Cnltod States, cov
ering a period of four years, shows
that as the average butterfat produc
tion increased from 160 to J00
pounds, the Income over cost of feed
advanced from $21 to 984; that Is
a gain of 60 pounds, or 33 V4 per
cent. In production gave an increased
income of 02 per cent over feed cost.
The next gain of 60 pounds raised
the Income over cost of feed to 160.
the next to $63. the next to $74 the
next to $87, the next to $100. and
the last to $118.
As the butterfat production In
creased from 160 pounds to 300
pounds, the income over cost of feed
advanced from $21 to $63; In other
words, as product Ion doubted. In

three times. When the butterfat
