DAIRY JOTTINGS. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 15 April 1914
DAIRY JOTTINGS Something that is often negleoted In the dairy is regular watering. One farmer waters horses throee timea a day, whethpr they are doing anything or not, but the cows are watered only once a day, and sometimes a day is slipped.

It is ImpDos siblo for her to take all that at one time, and it is not possible for her to give the maximum amount of milk un, less she has that amount of water, as water constitutes 87 per cant, of the milk produced. If a dairy farmer wishes to eUcOOOd he should study the habits, likes and dislikes of his cows. He should food them liberally and make them as com fortable as iossible. Unless he or she is prepared to be a student of cows, success is not probable. To the dairy farmer we should any, know your cows individually. This can be beat done by weighing the milk from each cow daily, once a week, on two consea cutive days each month, or even once a month. ...
