significant as the other. There has
loin: been a theory that a cow would
give more milk if milked at regular

regularly. The department of agri
culture tried It out on a scale suf
ficiently largo to mnko certain of the

Irregular milking, although regularity

nnd milking were Irregular, as Is the
case on many farms. It hns always

n cow would trlvo more milk If sho
bad water constantly before her than
If she were watered onco or twice a

of wnter continuously lies mnlnly In
the saving of Inbor rather than In a
greater production of milk.
