Variations in milk of single cows. The variations in the tests of milk of single cows from milking to milking or from day to day, are greater.than many cowowners suspect. There seems to be no uniformity in this variation, except that, the quality of the milk produced generally improves with the progress of the period of ' lactation; even this may not be noticeable, however, except when the averages of a number of tests made at different stages during the lactation period are compared with each other. Vhen a cow gives her maximum quantity of milk, shortly after calving, the quality of her milk is generally poorer (by one per cent. of fat, or less) than when she is drying ofi'. Strippers' milk is therefore as a rule richer in fat than the milk of fresh cows. I48. By testing separately every milking of a number of cows through their whole period of lactation, the results obtained have seemed to warrant the following conclusions in regard to the variations in the test of the milk from single cows, and it is believed that these conclusions allow of generalization. 1 1. Some cows' milk tests about the same at every milking. Such cows generally give a uniform quantity of milk from day to day. 2.
