OF THE REASONS WHY
States Separator -
IS THE BEST IN
The United States Separator employs a feeding device to
deliver the whole milk beyound the cream zone preventing
any remixing of cream and skimmilkand any conflict of cur
rents. No other device of any other Separator will do this
work so well, as the records show. This device is patented,
and can be used on no other Separator.
i'cup me unueu aiaies uscsiioii-uuueu uiiuuucia iui mc iur
rouV rents of milk through the separator bowl. This is covered by
strong patents. No discs or other construction can equal its
perfection in separation. It won the world's record for skirn
ming, in 50 consecutive runs continuing 30 days, with the
milk often different breeds of cows.
99 99-100 of the creameries use cream gathared from
United States Separators and are eager for more. Cream
from the United States is smooth and perfect for butter mak
ing. ' The United States skims cleaner, runs easier, washes
easier and lasts longer than any otner separator,
man who runs one. Ask for catalogue at once.
