The feeding of nearly sour milk has been practiced, and the feeding of. whey, but we are euro that the calf has no particular liking for that kind of food. Under modern methods of dairying it is pos sible on many farms to have the skim milk sweet. Where hand separators are used, of course it is an easy mat ter to have milk of the kind we have, indicated. Even where the milk has to be hauled to the creamery, tho farm er can, if ho will, have milk that is sweet when he gets home from tho creamery. If it is not, he has himself or the creamery to And fault with about it. If it is tho creamery, he should take tho matter in hand at once. In many cases it is the fault of tho other patrons of the creamery, if the skimmilk is sour when the farmer gets homo with it. The said other patrons have got into the habit o...
