Dairy Suggestions from European Conditions as Seen in the British Isles, Holland and Denmark (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Dairy Suggestions From European Conditions as Seen in the British Isles, Holland and Denmark A study of the dairy conditions of Illinois shows conclusively that the dairymen are not getting the profits they should from the money and labor invested in the business of producing milk. Since there are dairy sections in Europe where they are feeding American grown grain to their cows and producing dairy products which are sold on European markets in competition with ours, it is important for the American dairymen to know what is wrong with our methods, and the details of the system that permits profitable dairying on land worth from five to ten times as much as that in the Central West. This bulletin is the result of a summer spent in making a detailed study of the methods employed in the production of milk on the farms of the intensive dairy countries of Great Britain, Holland, and Den mark. The main purpose in the study was to look for points in which European dairymen excel. This was a second visit for the Chief in Dairy Husbandry, who eight years before noted the important features at that time, and the observations of the first visit, coupled with the more mature and deliberate opinions of the second, are herewith com piled. While many of the foreign conditions are, of course, vastly different from ours, and we cannot copy all of their methods directly, the underlying principles of dairying are the same the world over, and the high points of their success are uniformly good cows, economical feeding and care, and sanitary methods, resulting, in dairy products of high quality; The observance or non-observance of' these points make the difference between success and failure, and are of vital importance to all American dairymen.
