Dean Amide, director of Field Operations,
reported a very successful beginning for the
Milk Urea Nitrogen program. First offered in
October, a total of 1,066 herds have already
enrolled with several reporting a reduction in
feed costs made possible by the MUN test for
protein levels in the milk. He invited DHIA
members to attend the district meeting which
will be held at the Cross Keys Inn, Adams
County, on Feb. 1 and the state meeting sche
duled for Feb. 16, in State College.
County Agent Thomas E. Piper presented a
summary of results of production testing for
1995. With 3,360 cows on test, average milk
production at 19,453 pounds exceeded the
state average with the county ranking 7th in
Pennsylvania. An average 616 pounds of pro
tein was produced by each Adams County
cow on test. A total of 1,284 cows, nearly one
third of those in the member herds, were
removed during the year due to low produc
tion, health causes, or sale.
A cow in the herd of Ray Dutterer, Littles
town, was honored for producing 217,127
pounds of milk in her lifetime. The Robert C.
Hoffman herd was recognized for producing
the highest quality milk. Awards for high cow
single lactation production of milk and pro
tein went to Penn Gate Farm near Littlestown.
Following Clowney’s Lagging Stream
Farm in receiving the Pa. DHIA herd manage
ment award were Latimore Valley Farm in
second place, Stoner Dairy in third, Robert C.
Hoffman, fourth, and Getty Acres in fifth
