CAUSES OF VARIATION IN TEST OF MILK. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 February 1914
CWi-UEO OF VARIATION IN TES1 OF MILK. Professor E, IH. Farrington, Wis 0?00oln Dairy School, U.S.A., records his experiences in this matter as fol. lows. lie says the variation in the test of a cow's milk from day to clay is influenced by at least ten different things:- d 0 1. The natural disposition of the cow. If she has a quiet, even tom* peramont, her milk will test about the same per cent, fat from day to day; while, on the other hand, if she ia nervous and easily excited, the per cent, of fat will change from one iliking to another, in some cases as mtuio as one per cent. I, The breed of the cow has some influence on the teot of her milk, As a rule the Guaernsy and Jersey milk is richer than that of the Ayrhilre and milking Shorthorn, 3. Thb period of lactation, Mo t sows give the thinnest milk when the Row is the largest, or a few weeks after the cow it fresh, the test gradually increasing until the time whoea she is a stripper, There is, however, some difference in cows re. ...

JUDGING A DAIRY BULL. Should be Three Years Old Before Breeding. [Newspaper Article] — St Arnaud Mercury — 11 February 1914
JUDGING A DAIRY BULL, Should be Three Years Old Before Breeding, if the bull Is properly taken care ot-provided he is healthy and sound constitutionally-he ought to be in better condition and ought to be much more vigorous at four years of age than he is at one year or eighteen months,. There is no way of accurately judg png the value of a dairy alro until hini heolers mature as cows, This would be when they are two years old, and this will make the bull five years ald; In other words, he should not be used for service until he Is three years old. We want Individuality; we want performance in ancestry or a good pedigree; but above all we want a sIre that will transmit these desir. able qualities to his female offspring, and how can we tell this until the heiters are old enough to be judged at the milk pail? No promising dairy sire ought to be disposed of until after he Is live years old. Then, If he does not prove to be what one desires, the sooner he is disposed of the better, On t...
