It Is necessary thnt moisture ho pres

It is particularly Important that

United States Department of Agricul

tccted from contamination with dual,
other dirt nnd files. Experiments car

must be sterilized with steam or boil

cans may bo left in it until time for
them to be used again, but there must
bo some means of ventilation to carry
off the moisture. Cans may lie,got on
a rack to dry, but thoy should be pro
tected from flies' and dust, preferably
In a ivell-screened milk house.
Producing Clean Milk
Factors to bo observed In pro
ducing good clenn milk:
Clean, healthy cows in clean,
well lighted and well ventilate!
Plenty of pure water Xor the
herd and mllkhouse.
Clenn utensils, thoroughly
washed, steamed and sunned.
Small-top milking pulls. Milk
with dry hands.
Removo milk from stable as
soon as drawn from each cow.
Have a separate mllkhouse for
handling milk nnd dairy utensils.
Cool milk to 50 degrees V. or
lower as soon ns drawn.
Keep milk at a low tempera
ture until delivered and deliver
regularly. G. K. Morton, Col
