A record is left on the farm in a hard Book which is furnished by the Dairy division of the United states department of agriculture and a duplicate record is taken away in a Ledger carried by the tester. At the end of the year the Ledger sheets Are sent in and summaries Are made of the records of each cow in the association and Thea summaries Are sent to the owners of the cows at the end of the year. This furnishes the men own nip the cow a reliable record upon which to base his estimate of the value of his cow and also tells whether such cow should be retained in the Herd or sold for beef.
