S. Department of Agriculture 1.

The sale of dairy products furnishes a steady income throughout! the year. The farmer who depends upon crop sales during one or two months of the year, while during the rest of the year he has no cash income. Such a system requires long credits in the community. 2. The market for dairy products fluctuates very little year by year as compared with other farm products.

3. Through the return of manure to the land, the fertility and physical condition of the soil' may be maintained at a high level and crops increased. Even after many years a properly maintained dairy farm has constantly increasing crop yields instead of decreasing ones. 4. In dairying, labor may be utilized at a more uniform rate throughout the year than is nearly any other farm business.

The grain grower example, may have to employ much additional labor at harvest time, but so far as the dairy is concerned, the dairyman has about the same duties to perform every month of the year. Thus, less help is required seasonally and permanent employes may be kept. 5. Through the dairy cow many unsalable roughages may be transformed into products from which cash may be realized. Grass, hay, corn fodder, and other roughage which may not have a ready sale are economically utilized by the dairy cow.

Land which is not suitable for cultivation can be utilized for pasturage for dairy cows. incidently all remained to hear the final verdict of 11 to" 20 in favor of the freshies. Henry Schroeder acted as referee. After the junior stars had all shown the II. S.
