MILKING MACHINE TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 29 May 1914

MILKING MACHINE TESTS. Bulletin 353 of the New York Ex periment Station at Geneva reports ^ extended tests of the efficiency of the milking machine compared with hand milking ; and finds that it does not measurably influence the yield of milk. That is, cows in the station herd milked alternately by han.l and by tho machine in 71 full lactation periods showed no more fluctuation in jield due to the method of milking than would naturally occur from year to year in a herd milked continuous ly by hand; As the station has already proved that clean milk can he-produced by the machine if simple precautions are ob served, the use or non-use of the machine would seem to be merely an economic question whose factors arc cost of installation and up-keep, availability and coBt of labour, size of herd and general convenience. The bulletin does..not discuss many of these factors, but gives some cate : fully collected data regarding the i time newssary in milking by the two methods, figures which s...

The French, desperato at defeat, were loath to lay down their wea pons, and ail night long the Swiss soldiers turned hack armed strag glers and scattered detachments.

THE DAIRY EXPERIMENTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. [Newspaper Article] — Malvern Courier and Caulfield Mirror — 29 May 1914

THE DAIRY I3XPK.niMH.NTS WITH CREAM SEPARATORS. The general opinions held with rc Kunl to speed and temperature dur ing the employment ol separators have been put to test at the Experi mental Station of the University of Missouri. The experiments showed that on increase in the speed of a separator leads to a higher propor tion of skimmed milk and to a high er percentage of fat in the cream, and, within ordinary limits, the higher the speed the less is the amount of fat remaining fi the skim med milk. It is further declared that, con trary to,_gcneral belief, a reduction in the temperature of the milk oc casions a higher proportion of skim med milk and a small amount of cream with a higher perefntage of fat. The effect is said to be still fur ther emphasised when the separator ir> adjusted to deliver cream with a high fat content. « A third conclusion which the in vestigators adduccd was that the. amount of fat in cream varies in di rect proportion to the composition of the milk. ...
