In our herd improvement we will
breed and feed for such size only in
the dairy cow as shall enable her to
perform the physical labors we put
upon her. We will remember that, un
like the poet's “1111111 with the hoe,”
she is not “ brother to the ox," but Ills
sister, and that upon her In no stren
uous physical sense rests the yoke or
the bunlea of the ox. Her obligations
are the gentler, more refined ones of
maternity. She should not be the pro
ducer of the raw materi.fl on the farm
or Its harvester. She is the changer of
the crude material into the highest
quality of finished food products. Tru
ly one of nature’s greatest wonders Is
the work of the cow! In our breeding,
therefore, we will want to produce a
cow of robust health without In the
least unnecessary degree sacrificing
her femininity. We will try to more
