Dairymen everywhere are uwukeulug
to the fact that cleanliness Iu the sta
ble means better milk and consequent'
ly better prices, and any arrangement
that will help keep the milk giver out
of the dirt should be of Interest The
illustration shows a stall that a writer
In the Prairie Farmer claims will keep
a cow perfectly clean. It Is construct
ed as follows: Use a 2 by 4 for bottom
of feed rack. Place this throe feet
from floor to stall. Use 1 by 4 strips
placed about Blx Inches apnrt, forming
the rack. The strips should slope back

milking you hang the empty pnll on
the hook and set tho colored pointer

the milk you read the weight aa mark
ed by this hand. A cprlns balance
that can be bought for 25 or 35 cents'
will answer the purpose, but will not
be ns convenient. A shelf on which
the bottles are kept, n record sheet and
a lead pencil complete the stable equip
ment for testing your herd. It H but a
moment's work to hang the milk pall
on the scales, read the dial and record
the weight. Mixing the milk and tak
ing the sample will occupy a few mo
ments more, says Kimball's Palry
Farmer, but all represent a very little
time and a great deal of gain.

The cows should be well bedded
both for comfort and cleanliness.
A bran mash now and then a short
time before calving Is most beneficial.
If tho udder Is excessively caked and
hard, it is well to draw a little milk
from It. This will help to ward off
inflammation and garget.
It's poor policy to use anything but
the best bull. A grade has no place at
the head of your herd. v
Do not move cows faster than a
comfortable walk while, on tho way to
place of milking or feeding.
The breeder who has a definite Idea
In view can improve his animals. Tho
one who goes at it blindly never can.
Too many dairymen do not know
whether their cows are payltig or not.
They do not know which are the good
and which the poor ones.

leaving the droppings behind It When
she lies down she will be compelled to
lie in front of the 2 by 4, with her head
under the feed rack. It is not neces
sary to have a gutter in a stall of this
kind. There should be short partitions,
however, to keep the cows from turn
ing arouud.
Testing tho Dairy Herd.'
Records of the performances of dairy
cows form the only accurate and safe
basis for judging their value. It is
tho constant aim of progressive dairy
men to improve their herds, and such
improvement must depend largely upon
culling the herd
nnd getting rid
of the unprofit
able animals.
From the breed
ers' standpoint
records are esp
daily valuable
in assisting in
finding custom
ers for their
stock. Many
buyers insist on
seeing records
of dairy per
formance before
A record is al
so of great help
to the feeder. If
he knows exact
ly what a cow
Is doing he can
prepare the ra
tion accordingly
and often feed
more economic
ally. Again, a daily milk record en
ables a dairyman to detect the ap
proach of sickness in a cow and thus
to take steps to ward it off. Great In
spiration Is obtained from keeping a
record, and nothing gives n dairyman
more satisfaction than watching tho
improved returns from his herd.
The scales shown in the illustration is
milking shod.
If you want a ventilator to draw
well, says an Ohio dairyman, run It
straight up and do not put uny curve
or dips In it, and let no man tell you
that the middle of tho barn Is the
proper place to have the ventilator. I
would rather have four ventilators
than one.
Sunlight Is the groat natural disin
fectant. Sunlight and pure air are
two great essentials to tho health of
man and beast. . Dark, poorly venti
lated and filthy stables are disease
breeding grounds. Keep tho stables
clean' and let the sunlight and fre:;h
air penetrate every nook and corner
therein. Provide plenty of window
In the stables and fix them so they can
