Cows Glvlna Down Milk.
John Burrows, the well-known scien
tist, in regard to cows giving down
their milk, says: "Many persons think
that giving down or holding up the
milk by the cow Is a voluntary act
In fact they fancy the udder as a ves
sel filled with milk, and that the cow
releases or withholds It Just as she
chooses. But the udder Is a manufac
tory; it is filled with blood, from
rwhlch the milk Is manufactured
While you milk. This process is con
trolled by the cow's nervous system.
"When she is excited or In any way dis
turbed, as by strangers or by taking
away her calf or any other cause, the
process is arrested and the milk will
nnt flow. The nervous energy goes
elswhere. The whole process Is aa
involuntary as Is digestion in man
nn4 is disturbed or arrested in about
the same way.
"Working in filth about the dairy Is
only a habit
"When a man says he has a hard
time drying up a cow, you may know
be has a good one.
The average cow produces only
about 165 pounds of butter yearly.
Bhe would produce more if she had
the chance. ,

Wet Feed or Dry?
If I feed my cows ground feed of
any kind, should it be fed wet or dry?
Which will produce the larger quanti
ty of milk? George W. Rapp.
In general it will make very little
idlfference wwhether ground feed is
(fed wet or dry. In absence of succulent
food, as roots or ensilage, it may be
to advantage to moisten the grain,
and there are certain dry foods like
knalt sprouts that are made distinctly
mom nnlatable by being moistened,
which Is also an advantage. Country

Packing Butter for Shipment
Packages of butter often rocolvo
rough handling while In transit For
this reason the maker should take
pains In fixing the package so that It
twill not reach its destination broken.
In his report of the last butter con
test Earle Brlntnall, assistant pro
fessor of dairying at Manhattan, Kan.,
recommends packing the small tub In
a larger one and filling the Interven
ing space with paper, or wrapping In
paper and then In a gunnysack, both
of which ho says are good methods.
The Test by Heat.
At the national dairy show at Chi
cago last winter samples of milk and
cream sent In for testing for flavor
were heated In a water bath to a
temperaturo of about 100 degrees.
This heating seemed to bring out ob
jectionable flavors In a more marked
degree than when the milk was cold,
although tests were made of both tho
cold and warm milk.
