TESTS OF DAIRY COWS. The Report of this Experiment Station for 1889 gives on page 106 to 134 the results of the first year's test of three breeds of dairy cows. When this work was undertaken it was the intention to continue it for two years. The second year's test has been completed and the results reached, combined with those of the first year, can be found on the following pages. The general conditions under which these trials have been conducted, the methods adopted and the objects sought to be reached are fully stated in the Report of 1889, and as that Report has been sent to all those who are likely to receive this one, or can be had upon application, a restatement of these facts is not considered necessary. There were omitted from the description of the six animals used in the test the records of the Holstein cow, Agnes Smit. In order to make these descriptions complete her record is inserted at this point. Agnes Smit, Holstein, No. 4,479 H. F. H.
