THE DAIRY. Practical Hints for Ensuring Good Butter, and Plenty of it. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 12 March 1870
. - THE DAIEY. Practical Hints for Ensuring Good Butter, and Plenty of it. . «Ail known fact, that perfectly sweet cream 'ÄTrnakc thS very best butter.. It will make WnVÍund butter, but it will bo insipid; that is, it g°u ho inferior in flavour to that made from r htlv acid cream. The reason of this is, that when m neVfectly sweet is churned, tho butter globules creiha broken by mechanical action alone, and the S is ap* t° be inched or.greasy, the grain being Swtrovod. When tho cream is slightly soured, the Si acid helps chemically to weaken tho casemo Socs of the globules. Tho butter comes more nuickly and nil other things being equal it is better to have tho cream somewhat acid. Tn the famous butter dairies of Pennsylvania, it is found that tho owners aro particular to keep tho milk Ind crown in cold water, and in skimming, it is their nraotdco to leave no milk with tho cream. They uso a slámmor, with very small holes, as fino as a sieve, »nd put no niilk into tho cream-pot ; but,...

German bee-keepers are certain that fresh milk is tho I best artificial food for bees. Better spend your surplus money for manure than hide it in a bank vault, or an old stocking. Every owner of a horse should have such information as fits him to critioise the blacksmith.
