VARIATIONS IN CREAM TEST
Common Cause of Dissatisfaction on
Part of 801101" Use of Tester Is
Urned by Expert.
(By C. II. ECKI-KS. Missouri Cotleiio of
Ono of tho most common causes of
dissatisfaction on tho part of tho man
who soils cream on tho butterfat basis,
rises from variations In the test. This
Is especially truo If each can Is tested
separately nnd tho best way for tho
seller to convlnco himself that tho
tester is neither caroless nor dishon
est Is to Bccuro a little outfit for him
self. A well-made, accurato and satis
factory toBtor can now bo bought for
flvo dollars and its uso will not only
satisfy tho sollor that ho 1b getting
honest treatment but will enable him
to detect tho boarders In his herd.'
Tho gonoral intorcst In this subject is
compelling tho Missouri agricultural
experiment station to reprint a cir
cular for general distribution, but a
little discussion of tho principal causes
of variation In this brlefor form may
avoid tho necosslty for bo wldo n dis
tribution of that circular.
Speed of Soparator. A chango In
tho speed of the aoparntor Immediate
ly causes a chango In tho tests of tho
cr,eam, tho higher tho speed tho great
er tho amount of skim milk thrown
out and so tho higher tho tost of tho
cream secured. Putting it in another
way, a low speed results In a larger
quantity of thinner cream.
Rato of Inflow. Tho uso of tho float
docs not always Insure a uniform flow
of milk Into tho soparntor, becauso
the faucet may sot always bo opened
equally wido and the flow will ho moro
rapid when tho tank Is full than when
It Is nearly empty. Anything which
makes the inflow moro rapid will In
crease tho prdpoiilon of skim milk
which goes through, and lower tho
test of tho cream secured.
Flushing the Howl. 'flio amount of
water used In flushing may easily bo
varied a pint or moro and this with
out any other causo or variation may
chango tho tost by two, threo, or oven
four or flvo per cent.
Variations In tho Milk Itself. Tho
milk of an cntiro herd may rlso or fall
in its test from day to day becauso of
excitement or change in tho wcathor.
If tho milk of a herd, whoso average
test Is four per cent. Is ordinarily so
separated that tho cream tests 40
per cent fat, tho test will suddenly
rise to 42.5 per cent if the milk of the
herd Is suddenly raised to 4.25 por
cenc without any chango In method of
Cream Scrow. Tho test Is, of
course, readily controlled by means of
the cream screw, but as It Is seldom
changed in this way, on tho nverngo
farm, there should bo no trouble be
cause of variation from this source
Feed of the Cow. Variations In
cream tests aro practically never
caused by changes In tno feed of tho
cow as every wciMnrormeu croara
seller is now aware.
Mistakes and Dishonesty. Mistakes
nro most Hkoly to result from enro
lessness in taking samples, ns thoy
must bo very carefully and skillfully
taken If they aro to toll tho truth nnd
result in a fair payment, but actual
dishonesty is probably much rarer
than many sollors boltovo. A clover
thief would manipulate the reported
test In such a way as not to arouso
the suspicion that an honest report
sometimes brings up in tho mind of
the man who does not consider all tho
po?slblo hidden causes of variation.
