THE DAIRY COW AS A MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Melton Express — 18 March 1916

THE DAIRY C.OW AS A SMACHINE. (By B. A. Barr, Senior Dairy Supervisor, in "Journal of Agricul, f'tie, Victoria.") A: machine is a contrivance which, if supplied with sufficient power, is able to ,perform work.- By its use some of the potential energy of the fuel is transformed into w?ork. The work performed by a milking cow is in the form of milk production. To enable a machine to do worlk it is necessary to supply, it with suffi cient motiyv power, such as steam, gas, petrol, electricity, &c., all-of which possess varying .capacities for work. The, dairy cow requires" food as fuel, and just as the different fuels used to drive machines vary in value, so do the diffei'ent foods available to the cow vary in their value for milk production. Under similar conditions 1 ton 'of coal will perform a greater amount of work than 1 ton of wood, and similarly 1 cwt. of green oats will produce'a larger quantity of ..milk .than 1 ewt. of green maize, or 1.cwt. of bran .will give. a .luch...
