Thin makes a total of 335 cow; signed in two weeks. A dairyman with a high-pro- ducing herd of cows has a better market for his product than one with a low-producing herd, de- clares Fred L. Thompson, assistant county agent. In analyzing a year's record in I the Dairy Herd Improvement as- sociation for a five-cow herd it ;was found that one cow produced jbuttcrfat for four cents per po I loss than another. The feed cost of a pound of fat on a cow with a production of 330 pounds butter- fat was 21 cents; on a cow with a production of 277 pounds butler fat the cost was 25 cents. The return which a dairymim receives for himpelf is determined bv -the differcr.ce between the m.irkrt price, fixed by world conditions and cost of production. I The dairyman referred to pro- duced a total of pounds of i hutterfat for the year with i five cows. Had this all bffn produced with cows like Vis host rather than his poorest, it would have meant nn additional ye.tvh income above cost, of feed for the herd of or 16 cent nbovr i what' it actually was with botr good and cows.
