Miss Julia Kobriger went to de records of production obtained from our cow testing associations Are worthy of a great Deal of study because they Are obtained under strictly farm conditions. It is probably True that the average Dairyman belonging to a cow testing association has better cows and gives them somewhat better care than the average Dairyman who does not belong nevertheless the members of those associations Are not maintaining conditions on their farms that cannot be maintained by others. Some interesting figures were recently brought to Light in a study of the production records of in Iowa cow testing associations. The 10-highest producing cows in each of these 18 associations yielded an average of 11,352 pounds of milk and 453 pounds of fat while the 10 poorest cows in each of these same associations yielded Only 3,453 pounds of milk and 133 pounds of fat. The average feed Cost of the Good cows was Par Siead As compared wan $40.41 for the poor cows. The god cows consumed a Little Over twice As much iced As the poor ones but what about the income the Good cows brought an average income above feed Cost of $136.42 while the poor cows returned Only $28.71 above the Cost of their feed. From a profit Point of View therefore it took nearly five of the poorer cows to equal one of the better individuals. These figures speak for themselves. A poor cow is an expensive luxury on the farm. Again if we compare the Best 18 Herns m these 18 associations with the poorest 18 herds the results arc equally striking. The Best 18 herds yielded an average income above feed Cost of is of per cow while the poorest 18 herds returned Only 49.79 per cow.
