I lie falling rain alone prevented the big hall of the court house tieing filled Saturday afternoon at the dairy meet mg, hut the elements could not prevent several hundred enthusiastie creamery men and progressive farmers from being present, rile officers of the association had done all In their power to make the meeting a success, and it had been widely advertised, and hut for the rain, standing room would doubtless hate been at a premium Nevertheless iii** meeting was unqualifiedly a success, both speakers bringing out many points of vital interest to dairymen, arui both were closely questioned on innumerable subjects aud the discussion evidenced the interest Which prevailed. President Lawson called the meeting o order at 2 o'clock and introduced 'rot. ti haw of the state farm as the iirst speaker. While the professor is an erpert in the matter of sheep, he lias also a wide experience in the iRising of cattle food, having formerly lived in tile dairy region of Ontario, an so he took this for Ids subject. Ile said that while the rain prevented a larger attendance, nothing pleased him more than lo see tile mud. It meant great tidngs for the farmer. Bespoke of Hie wonderful adaptability of Minnesota for dairying ami the future in store for it, and then branched off into Hie different cattle foods. A hobby of his was peas arid oats sown together, about two parts of peas to one of oats; it makes a splendid summer food and he strongly advised all to try it; Hie land on which it is sown should invariably be plowed in the fall; it should he sow n about two aud one-half bushels to the acre. He touched lightly on Hie familiar subject of corn raising arid said that grain sown with corn will kill the weeds. Corn should he cut be fore it begins to dry up; always manure corn land; dry laud should la? plowed in the lull, wet land in the spring; spoke of the advantages of harrowing and surface plowing; corn is not valuable until it is in tile ear, but don’t let anything get too ripe and be burned up. •Sorghum is another splendid food for cattle; anyone who grow* it once will grow it again; it requires good land, and land must be harrowed often; three pecks of Beed should be planted to the acre; it should ire cut w hen it is breast iiigh and it also make.* a winter food; must be well cared for and kept free from weeds. Millet and rape are also two good dairy foods which can be grown anywhere, but best on bottom lands; they can be grown with corn. Alfalfa is little grown in Minnesota and makes a splendid food for cattle; it will grow in a strong loam with clay subsoil; the land should be plowed in the fall aud sowed early in the spring with oats or wheat; can be cut several times but no crop need be expected Hie iirst year; w hen planted alone requires fifteen pounds to the acre. Another good food is succotash. .Someone raised tile point that the mice got most of tim succotash, and the speaker advised the farmer to keep plenty of cats. Several questions were asked him on different subject*. Benamed as two good peas the Prussian blue ami the small white. Millet seed should be fed very lightly. Concluding the professor spoke of his pleasure on meeting the dairymen farmers of Freeborn county, congratulated them on their success and promised to meet them again soon. Prof. T. J,. II Hecker, the state expert and who has achieved a national reputation as a practical and scientific dairyman, next addressed the meeting. Be complimented in glowing terms the dairymen of Freeborn county, the banner dairy county of the United States; they have set tile pace for proper organization of creamery men; this means a great deal in five years’time. Be paid cooperative creameries a splendid tribute; Freeborn county is now in the van, but must redouble her efforts and stay there; the way to do it is to pay great attention to tile individual dairy cow; good breeds are tile Guernseys, Jerseys and Holsteins; they are especially adapted for dairy work. Be sure and get the best cows; another important point is the propel care of cows and their food. Be described ids experiments in the matter of foods and gave the following formula as tile nearest perfect for a day’s food as well as the cheapest. Six other shorthorn, a very large row’, yielded BIO pounds of milk, pounds of butter, ate 56 cents worth of food and tim butter brought 81.48, while a little Jersey cow giving 271 pounds of milk and eating 53 cents worth of food gave Ii pounds of butter which brought 82.80. The biggest milker sometimes gives the smallest return A cow should stand dry four to six weeks. After replying interestingly to a number of questions the professor con-ehided his address and tile very prolit able and entertaining meeting adjourned.

At the state farm after eating, the cattle are turned into ii covered runway, where they have free access to salt and water but are allowed nothing to eat during the day.
