' Dairy Notes.
From tho Up-to-Dalu Farmer.
The best way to find out wheth
.er tho crunnory pays the farmer,
ia'to ask tho farmer who patron
izes tho creamery. The oreamer
iOjM invito investigation They do
not ask anybody to tako their
word for it.
Tho farmers in western Nebras
ka have had haul times ft r man"
years, hb a result of repeated crop
failures; but now they are learn
ing a trick or two. They liavo be
gun to appreciate the value of the
great Amoriean cow, and thoir
future is assured
It migh.t bo a good idea, whon
the Hies are at thoir worst, to let
tho cows run in the pasture at
night, and keep them in somo eool
and shady place during the day.
Tho popular plan is just '1.-0 re
verse of this. The cows arc kept
in tho burning field all day, and
shut up in a barren lot at night.
Three Rood cows, well kept and
properly handled, will bring to a
farmer every month SI 3. 00 if the
milk is taken to 'a creamery station
and the butter fat sold at present
prices. Tho milk conies back to
feed tho calves and pigs and tho
cows go on month after month
making this record of cash income.
What pays on a farm bettor than
if your cow isn't paying her
way got rid of her. If sho breaks
through fences, get rid of her, or
sho will teach other cows tho trick.
If Everything she entu goes to
th6 manufacture of tallow, instead
of iniHc, get rid of hor. Get rid
of bvery cow that is not profitable,
or there will bo no profit in dairy
ing for you. A fow losing cows
will knock tho profits from many
Tho old fashioned milking stool
iaatill in vogue in somu sections.
It has ono leg, attached to a small
p;e.cp of plank, for. tho milker, to
sit on. It-is made in that shape
bedaujo JfjB so convenient to pick
up and hit the cow on the head,
ljt itlso'fcnaules tho milker to cap
size and spill the milk, with the
least trouble in tho world. Wo
seoiio good reason why tho milk
er ahonldn.t be comfortable, and
suggest tliat ilii old bucket, with a
p;ece of sacking tacked over tho
opou end, to sit on, makes a very
haitdy and comfortable seat.
"Vo learn that one firm in this
neighborhood contemplates pro
curing seventy-five cows from
whjch to furnisli cream to tho
coming separating station at this
plapc,. This is the right spirit.
Moro of it will assuro the McCoolc
station to be a big success from
tho. start, although it usually
takes some time to make a success
of such enterprises. McCoolc
