Dear Editor
While reading the September 22,
1984, issue of “Lancaster Far
ming”, I saw the article on dairy
commercials, page A 12, I’ve now
seen several of those commercials
on television, and I’ve been struck
by their attractiveness. However, I
do think they may be missing the
Consumers need to be en
couraged to buy and use more
dairy products, so why doesn’t the
National Dairy Promotion Board
offer dairy recipes for those
delicious looking foods at the end of
each advertisement? To take the
idea one step further, why not offer
dairy savings coupons (10 cents or
20 cents or 25 cents off on milk,
butter, cottage cheese, cream
cheese, sour cream, etc., etc.?
This could be especially ap
propriate with the holiday season
approaching! Of course, con
sumers would have to submit a
self-addressed, stamped envelop to
reduce postage costs, but what a
bonanza for dairymen.
I’m certain you’ll say this better
than I ever could, so please foster
the idea along.
Sincerely yours in service* to

An increasing number of people
are doing their own automobile,

This may include draining and

Our Extension Veterinarian tells
us that dogs find the sweet flavor of
anti-freeze solutions very tasty.
Beware! Ethylene glycol, a chief
ingredient in anti-freeze, is ex

severe kidney damage. Never
