want to call attention to the fact that
most of our dairy products, represent
ins In value hundreds of millions of
dollars, are made on our dairy farms
and are of Inferior quality. More than
this, most of the inferiority of quality
iu both farm and factory products Is
due to milk contamination. The lm
portance of cleanliness of cows, sta
bles and utensils has been emphasized
so often that it ought to be known to
every one who has eyes or ears.
But one of the newer ideas of reduc
ing Contamination of milk is not gen
, erally known. It is the use of the
small top milking pail. Based on
sound common sense that prevention
is better than cure, this Is the coming
Idea In sanitary milk production. Re
member that half the ordinary dirt
getting Into milk is soluble and that
more than half of the teeming millions
of bacteria readily pass through strain
ers. To Avoid Stable Dirt.
During the milking dust and larger
dirt particles are constantly settling
Into the pail even though care is taken
to clean the cow and to avoid dust in
the stable air. It is most reasonable
to reduce the size of the opening
through which the dirt falls into the
milk. It should be reduced Just as
much as the interest and patience of
the milkerv will permit. Chance for
contamination is reduced more than I
one-third when the diameter of the
opening In the milk" pail is changed
from twelve to nine inches, and it Is
reduced three-fourths when the open
dug Is changed from twelve 4o sis Inch
es. Experience shows that great im
provement can be made without any
Inconvenience to the milkers. Every
inch of reduction helps.
We have become so accustomed to
ordinary milk for butter and cheese
making that we fail to realize what
really good milk means for these prod
ucts. Experiments made by Mr. Hall In
New York show that a larger yield and
better quality of cheese can be made
from sanitary milk than from the prod
uct of the ordinary dairy. To his own
surprise there appeared to bo abso
lutely no fat lost at the press when
cheese had been made from 5.5 per
cent "certified" milk. rrofessor R. A.
Pearson In Kimball's Dairy Farmer.
Planting Abandoned Lanes.
Passing through the country we often
notice long lanes leading from the milk
yard back Into the pastures. Many of
such appear to have been in use for
many years, until from the excess of
plant food present there is scarcely
any grass visible. This practice could
be Improved by making one perma
nent center fence, wire preferable, and
put up a movable one to one side,
causing a June of liberal width which
should correspond with size of dairy.
After three years move this fence over
to the other side of the center one.
Plant the abandoned lane two years In
succession to corn fodder. Follow the
next year with grain and stock to
clover; keep on making these three
year rotations, and with but a very
small expense what now is a constant
waste will be turned to cash. S. Gor

ts consequently worm more Tor reea.
Branding of Butter. .
A speaker nt a recent butterniakers'
convention said: I have sold buthtr un
der my own brand for the past twelve
years and know that It has meant
much to me In the way of obtaining
not only prices, but weights. The
branding of butter means as much as
the branding of flour. The man that
goes out to buy Big Joe will not go
home with the Gold Medal. If lie can
not get his brand at one store, he will
go to some other to find It. If yon
have your own brand on the butter
the grocer cannot palm olf some other
brand on his customers that are used
to your make. The result is they will
go to some other store in search of
their favorite make.
Temperature to Separate.
The warmer the milk the more fluid
it is. It is a rule adopted by all
creamerymeu in operating power ma
chines that the milk must be separated
at a temperature rbove 85 degrees.
Cold milk is more viscous or less fluid
than warm, and the cream will not sep
arate so readily. If this is true of
power machines, where everything
runs more uniformly than la possible
with a hand machine, it Is certainly
true of the hand machine. Professor
E. II. Webster. s
How Prize Butter Was Made.
George II. Bristol, who won the first
prize on dairy butter at the Illinois
State Dairymen's association, says of
his daily methods: 1 keep only Jersey
cows and endeavor to have my sta
bles and all dairy utensils as clean as
possible. I feed and milk regularly,
giving ground feed (corn, oats and
bran mixed) for the grain ration and
for roughage shredded corn fodder and
alfalfa hay. I use the De Laval sep
arator, keeping the cream at about 50
degrees F. I warm it up to OS degrees
twelve hours before churning, and
f whpnt. I then draw olf the butter
milk, wash twice in clear well water,
salt about. one and a quarter ounces t'1
the pound, work a little In the vorfcK

Milking Stools.
Every milking stable should be fitted
up with plenty of good milking stools
and proper places to keep them. It is
astonishing how some dairymen- man
age to get along year after year with
the makeshifts, that are found in sta
bles. Rickety old boxes that are black
with filth, broken stools of almost any
type or variety, and no place to keep
them out of the dirt or out of the way.
It is easy to make a good "milking
stool, and the cost Is not great. With
the proper material and a few hours'
time a' good comfortable lot of stools
may be easily provided.
