in advance ef the milkers, a man goes
with a flail o f warm water—warmed

man can cleanse the udders for nlue
or ten milkers if the cows are conven

had each milker go over his row of
cows and cleanse them before cleaning
himself up. Hut I soon discovered, as
the cows were put from the other sta

IIow shall the dairy cow I k » changed

flow? The answer to this question
will be modified specifically by local
ity, but some things may he said with
reference to it that will apply to any
locality, according to Professor Shaw,
who advises in American Agricultur
ist: As soon as the pastures begin trt
fall In quantity, so that the cow must
necessarily begin to work for her food
unduly, supplemented food must be fur

to materially lose their succulence
more succulent food should be pro
vided. The former may i»e furnished
as mill feed or In the form of soiling
food; the latter will be furnished as
soiling food. I f the dairyman can fur
nlsh both nutriment and succulence In
ample supply In the soiling food, then
outlay for mill feed Is not necessary,
and tliis certainly should be his aim.
