Cheese v. New Milk. People sometimes wonder (says the; London " Dairy") whether cheoso making or new-milk selling pnjs best. At the present time it is- a question that coincs to the front because eveiyone knows that ne\V' milk has gone up in price for the timo being, while, so has cheese. The basis of comparative competi tion is easy to get at, how'ever. One pound of curd is produced from ono gallon of milk, tho cheese itself being probably something like 8 per cent, less than the original curd.. It milk, therefore, is reckoned at Sd. per gallon, then cheese is also re quired to bo sold at Sd. per lb., or, say, 7-ls. per cwt.» while other prices would be in proportion. The great drawback in the process of cheese-making is the extra labour required. Financially it is usual to reckon that tUc^Svhey as a by product would cover the cost of labour whether fori to pigs or calves. All the same, paying for the labour docs not exactly cover the cost, because cheese-making is a ticklish jol),...
