Use Good Management
A study of 116 Noith Caiolina
d.iuy laims analyzed the factois
affecting i etui ns to labor and
management It is interesting to
study the ranking in oidei of
impoi tance as they affect dollar
1 Size of held
2 Hired labor pei bundled
weight of milk sold
3 Milk sold per cow
4 Total purchased feed and
crop expense per bundled weight
of milk
5 Blend price of milk
6 Livestock expense per hun
diedweight of milk
7. Machinery and genei al farm
expense per hundredweight of
These seven factois explained
80% of the variation m net oper
ating income The factoi that is
often placed first by dairymen as
a reason for low income, the
blend price received for milk, is
The fiist four factois are all
related to the management abil
ity'-of the aanyman and are di
rectly under control of the dairy
man. Let’s not blame the price
received for milk for all of the
low dollar ictuins to manage
Best Foot Forward
What is your image as a dairy
man in the eyes of the consuming
public 7
Theie was a time when the ap
pearance of your faim was not
too important You weie isolated
fiom the consumei This is not
so today Consumei s by the thou
sands drive through the farming
areas of Pennsylvania and what
they see and smell formulates
their opinion to buy or not to
buy milk
The appeal ance and odoi of
dairy farm waste (manuie) is
accepted by you and your neigh
bors as part of the faim, so you
have learned to live with it.
The city consumer who enjoys
a drive thiough the countryside
is upset by the appearance and
aroma that you accept as normal.
Good dauymen are learning the
value of handling farm waste
properly so that it will not be
objectionable to those who dnve
by the farm Those drivers are
your consumers
Attention Dairy Farmers
All danymen should be en
couraged to pay paiticular atten
tion to any farm diainage from
the imlkhouse, barnyaid or silos
that could be taken by the public
as a source of stream pollution
President Nixon’s speech on
pollution has turned many
Americans into “eagei beaveis”
looking for every possible source
of pollution.
Don't be surprised if a summer
tourist reports you, if he sees
youp farm drainage running to
ward a stieam The “heat is on”
to clean up oui environment and
no individual 01 business is going
to be ovei looked as a souice of
pollution This will include dany

Electric heating cable is invisible. You don't see
it or hear it . . . only gentle warmth tells you
it’s there.
Basically it’s wire . . . usually hidden in the
ceilings of your home. The wire’s connected to
thermostats that let you "dial” the comfort level
you prefer in every room. Incidentally, ceiling
cable rarely requires maintenance because the
thermostat is the only thing in the whole system
that has a moving part.
There’s no furnace ... no flame ... no dirt

no wasted space ... no chimneys. It is clean,
comfortable and carefree.
If you’re thinking of modernizing, be sure to
think of installing flameless electric heating
cable, or one of the four other types of electric
heat... warm air, hot water, baseboard or heat
pump. For more information and a free estimate
