KEEP THE BEST HEIFER CALVES [Newspaper Article] — The Picton Post — 4 December 1907

KEEP THE BEST HEIFER CALVES Somebody must raise the dairy cows, and that somebody must be a dairyman if the calves are to be of high quality. If breeding means anything It means that the cow's quality of large milk pro duction is likely to be .transmitted to her daughter. This has been so' tho- roughly established by thousands -of tests that It admits of no argument. There is no other animal from which such an' absolute and complete record of performance can be secured as from the dairy cow. Shall the value of these records to her progeny be thrown away. by not saving the good heifer calves? As Dean Davenport recently said at the Illinois State Dairymen's Conven tion, the present plan of not raising t!-e, calves has the same ultimate effect on the dairy 'business as it would to shoot a good cow whenever you see one. It is deliberately choosing to stand still or go backward instead of advancing. J Nobody else has bo many natural ad- , vantages as the . dairyman for raisin j I good he...
