Causing So Much Excitement?
You'll know why-the instant you taste it!
Hi-C OrangeM is amazingly delicious-a thrill-
ing new treat for youngsters and the whole
family-at mealtime, snacktime, anytime.
Hi-C OrangeM, which has been called "The
Dairyman's Dream," is a wholesome beverage
delicately flavored with orange juice! But that
isn't all. Hi-C OrangeM is a low-fat milk prod-
uct with vitamins A and D liberally added,
and also vitamin C. Think of it! Every 8-ounce
glass of Hi-C OrangeM contains the minimum
daily adult requirement of vitamin C!

Dairy Industry Aroused To Action
Florida's next Governor, half the members of the State Senate and all members
of the House of Representatives have just been elected, with the possible exception
of a few Republican members of the legislature, who might win in the general elec-
One candidate for Governor and at least one candidate for the Senate, both de-
feated, staged an all-out campaign of criticism of the Dairy Industry, the price of
milk and of the Florida Milk Commission, a twenty year old state agency which
state agricultural authorities and the Dairy Industry have testified has been largely
responsible for the phenomenal development of milk production in Florida during
the past twenty years to such extent that today, 100% of the fresh fluid milk require-
ments of the state is produced in Florida and in strictly Grade "A" quality.
A defeated candidate for Governor pledged his efforts (if elected) to abolish
the Milk Commission and should he fail in this, to "stack" the membership of the
Commission (Against the Dairy Industry) by appointing members whose sympathies
were with the milk consumers.
He stated further that the present Milk Commission was "stacked" with a ma-
jority of Dairy Industry members. Unfortunately, many people listen to and believe
the statements of candidates and have no way of checking the truth.
The Dairy Industry of Florida was justifiably alarmed at such unwarranted mis-
representation on a statewide broadcast basis and indications are that the Industry's
twenty-five to thirty thousand owners and employees and their families united their
votes in protection of their enormous investments in dairy land, equipment and cows,
and their one product, "Milk," which ranks third among the state's cash farm in-
Members of the Dairy Industry are to be congratulated upon their united stand
in the face of attack and abuse but certainly a word of warning is in order as we see
it. It is not enough that a majority of the voters have repudiated these candidates
and their false representations of the Dairy Industry, the Florida Milk Commission
and the price of milk. The people should know the truth and it now should be the
number one objective of the Dairy Industry to furnish the consumers of milk with
If the price of milk in Florida is slightly higher than in some other areas, as it
admittedly is, every Dairyman knows there is a good and understandable reason why
this is true.
The fact that the Florida Milk Commission is not stacked with Dairy Industry
members, is well known to those in the Dairy Industry. Three dairy members against
four non-dairy members, would hardly constitute "stacking."
A small profit to the dairy farmer who produces milk, if he is fortunate enough
to make a profit, and the national average of 1/3 cent per quart profit to the processor
and distributor of milk is certainly not unreasonable and is not objected to by con-
sumers who know that this is the case.
It is up to those of the Dairy Industry to see to it that the people are made thor-
oughly acquainted with these and other facts. If that is done, there will be no oppor-
tunity for politicians to make political issues and public whipping boys out of the
We Can If We Will
"The perils of our time gravely threaten the destruction of human freedom.
The danger is neither mythical nor imaginary. It is impending and real. Uncer-
tainty, anxiety, and fear permeate the whole global atmosphere and grip the heart
and soul of mankind. In this 'course of events' the time is definitely here when we
must recognize and acknowledge that all of us-the common man, the laborer, the
farmer, the captains of finance, business and industry are sailing aboard the same
Ship of State with the distant port of survival, peace, and security as our common
hope and destiny. Without discounting or minimizing but rather with a full com-
prehension of the portent and magnitude of the dangers that beset us, we can, if we
will, fight through to victory and a happy landing."-from an address by Honorable
John J. McClellan, U. S. Senator, Arkansas.

PASTURE and hay provide the
cheapest feed for all classes of
livestock-and are real labor-savers
Comparative studies indicate the
response from fertilizer on grass-
lands is as great, or greater, as on
any other crop grown. One ton of
fertilizer produces enough grass,
when properly utilized, to give 1000
pounds of beef or 8000 pounds of
milk. At today's prices this means
a big return from every dollar in-
vested in fertilizer.

For Our Youth Readers
Your Future Is What You Make It
NOTE: This is the fourth of a series of discussions on "Choosing Your Vocation." It is of
interest to both youth and parents.
For the past three issues our discussions have been centered around choosing
and testing your choice of a vocation. We are now at the point of assuming that
you know your talents and your opportunities and are ready to consider your prepa-
ration for your vocation. Some young people find that their first choice does not
work out" for them and frequently this is because some phase of general prepara-
tion has been neglected. No matter what vocation you enter the following points
Preparing For Your Vocation
If YOU LEFT SCHOOL TODAY,
WHAT KIND OF JOB COULD YOU
SECURE? Suppose you are 16 years old
and have completed your second year of
high school. You may become a delivery
boy, a stock girl, a telephone operator, a
farm helper, or a clerk. It is possible
that you might even advance from such
a position to the general managership of
a business or farm. .It has been done.
But here is a hard fact. Whether or
not you have the ambition and ability to
become a top executive, your chances for
advancement in nearly all fields are much
better if you finish high school-and even
greater if you complete college or techni-
cal courses. That's what statistics show.
Of course, you may make up for your
lapse in education through night school,
correspondence courses, or training in in-
dustry. But don't forget. The biggest op-
portunities are reserved for those who
prepare themselves for them.
Make Your Studies Count
IF YOU'VE CHOSEN YOUR VOCA-
TION EARLY, YOU CAN MAKE
YOUR SCHOOL CAREER REALLY
PURPOSEFUL. Pick your courses well.
Your teacher or vocational guidance
counselor can help you.
If you are planning for industrial work,
take all the shop work and science courses
If you are entering any branch of agri-
cultural work, be sure to take the courses
that will help you and affiliate with the
special programs and projects, such as
4-H Clubs, F.F.A. and vocational agri-
culture and home economics.
If you expect to continue with advanc-
ed studies, choose your college or techni-
cal school, write for its entrance require-
ments and see that you comply with them.
It may save you an extra year.
Your Record Is Important
Then there's the matter of your high
school record. The personnel manager or
prospective employer is likely to look at
it carefully when you apply for a job.
This record consists of many things, some
of which, up to now, you may not have
considered important to your future.
Your school grades may be figures on
a sheet to you. But to your prospective
employer they provide a rating of your
ability to learn, to organize your know-
ledge, to retain and to use it-in class
and in written examinations. If you want
to be a valued workman, you'll have to
be learning constantly while at work-
learning new tasks and new ways to per-
form old tasks.
One employer said: "As I interview a
prospective employee, I always wonder:
'Will this young man or woman be able
to learn and progress so that he will be a
more valuable employee? Is he capable
of becoming a real asset to our organiza-
tion? Or is he the kind that just gets
by?' In employment or in business for
yourself, you can't get by, by being 70%

4-H Dairy Team to the nation on a
national broadcast by transcription just
before their departure for England.)
The Florida Dairy Industry, the State
of Florida and other 4-H Club friends
have teamed up to finance sending Flori-
da's national 4-H Club Dairy Judging
Champions to the British Royal Live
Stock Show to be held in Devonshire,
England, July 1 to 4.
The Florida team won the United
States national championship in the
National 4-H Dairy Cattle Judging Con-
test held at the Dairy Cattle Congress in
Waterloo, Iowa last fall. Their victory
over the 27 states represented in the Con-
test demonstrated that the Sunshine State
has accomplishments in livestock farm-
ing as well as in citrus fruit and winter
vegetables. The states' dairy production
was almost doubled in the last ten years.'
Funds for the trip are provided by the
Florida Dairy Industry and the State of
The team is made up of Ray and War-
ren Alvarez, brothers from Jacksonville,
Fla., Steve Simmons from America's
oldest city, St. Augustine, and Paul
Thornhill from Winter Haven. These
boys are from 17 to 20 years of age. They
have belonged to the 4-H club an aver-
age of seven years and each one owns
several head of dairy cattle. They have
demonstrated the use and development of
"head, heart, hand and health" for which
the 4-H Club is named.
The team will be accompanied on the
trip by their Coach, C. W. Reaves, the
Florida Extension Dairy Specialist, and
by Albert Lawton, County Agent in Jack-
sonville. Enroute from Florida to New
York, they will visit some good herds of
cattle and be guests of the National 4-H
Camp in Washington on June 19, which
includes a tour of the White House.
First stop abroad is in Ireland where
the team will attend the Irish Live-Stock
Show and participate in a Judging Con-
test at Cork. Cork is in the same county
as the famous Blarney Castle and Kil-
larney Castle which their Irish hosts have
promised to take them to see. From
Cork, they go to England for a visit to
famous English farms. The British Royal
Show is held July 1 to 4. The Inter-
national Dairy Judging Contest will be
participated in by teams from three conti-
England, Scotland and the Channel
Islands are the birth place of most of
America's finest breeds of livestock. Fol-
lowing the Royal Show, the team will
visit London and other points in England
and then visit Jersey and Guernsey
Islands in the English Channel. These
tiny islands are the birthplace of the Jer-
sey and Guernsey breeds of cattle. Many
fine animals are imported from them into
the United States each year.
The team will make a brief visit to
Holland and France before leaving for
home on the S.S. America, July 23.
The Florida team is eagerly awaiting
the trip and the international competition
in cattle judging. They are proud of the
honor of representing the two million

them at the convention headquarters.
The Miami area has one-third of Flor-

the nation's largest and most modern
dairy farms and plants.
The first afternoon session of the pro-

THE DAIRY MONTH IDEA
Many years ago a wide awake dairy-
man conceived the idea of attracting
more public attention to the virtues of
the Dairy Industry and its products and
succeeded in getting his fellow Dairy-
men and his local Chamber of Commerce
to join together in observing a local
"Dairy Week" program.
This idea of "Dairy Week" was such
a success that it quickly attracted nation-
wide attention and grew to be a month-
The original objective was to promote
a greater consumer interest in drinking
milk during the early summer period
when all Dairy regions had a consider-
able surplus of milk.
The nationwide June Dairy Month
program is now sponsored jointly by all
National and State Dairy Industry Asso-
ciations and is directed through the In-
dustry's national educational and infor-
mational organization, the National Dairy
June 1952 marks the 17th national ob-
servance of June as Dairy Month. The
program has gradually changed from one
on sales promotion to the one of en-
deavoring to give to the public generally,
a better knowledge and understanding
and appreciation of the Dairy Industry
and of dairy products.
Dairy Month grows more popular each
year with widespread recognition being
given by the press, the radio, and numer-
ous civic organizations as well as all
branches of the Dairy Industry from the
farm up through all milk, ice cream and
other dairy products manufacturers and
Dairy Industry Review
Annual Dairy News Release by the State Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with
observance of June as "Dairy Month."
Last year 85 million gallons of milk
were produced by Florida's 168,394 pro-
ducing dairy cows.
The 1951 milk production in Florida
was 6 per cent above 1950, the Florida
State Chamber of Commerce reported
yesterday, in recognition of June, Dairy
During 1951 a total of 480,722 gal-
lons of milk was imported into Florida.
However, slightly more than this amount
was exported, principally to Georgia and
Alabama. Seasonal variations and de-
mands, and geographical locations of
milk processing plants account for this
This week's business review of the
State Chamber's research and industrial
division places the volume of forty-per-
cent cream brought into Florida from
other areas at 1,733,857 gallons last year.
This amount is slightly under 1950 im-
portations. Cottage cheese importation
increased 10 per cent last year and
amounted to 2,794,989 pounds. A rela-
tively small amount of cottage cheese is
made in Florida each year.
The principal manufactured dairy
product made in Florida is ice cream. A
total of 12,202,712 gallons of ice cream
and similar frozen desserts was made in
the 297 plants of this type in the State
last year. Production increased 10 per
cent during 1951.
Unusual problems characterize the
dairy industry in Florida, the result, pri-
marily, of seasonal demand and of the
need for more local feed crops. How-
ever, through the cooperation of the in-
dustry and state and federal agencies, sig-
nificant advancement has been made in
recent years and Florida is today produc-
ing enough fluid milk to meet the de-
mand in the State.

More than a half billion gallons of ice cream were manufactured in the United
States in 1950. About 15 per cent of this amount was flavored with chocolate or
cocoa. Statistics show that chocolate and cocoa rank second only to vanilla as flavor-
ing for ice cream.

cream samples are
submitted by ice cream manufacturers in
Florida and surrounding states for analy-
sis and observation. The 19.51 clinic was
devoted entirely to chocolate ice cream.
Results of the clinic served to emphasize
the lack of uniformity of flavor, body and
texture of the chocolate ice cream manu-
factured in this area. It must be made
clear, of course, that preferences of con-
sumers in different areas dictate to a cer-
tain extent the characteristics of the choc-
olate ice cream which any given manu-
facturer might make. On the other hand,
it was generally agreed after observing
the clinic samples that the overall quality
of chocolate ice cream in this area can be
Chocolate or cocoa may be of two
types: American process or Dutch
process. The essential difference is that
the Dutch product is alkali treated to in-
crease solubility and darken the color.
Chocolate flavoring materials vary in
quality in the same way as other food
products. Cheap cocoas sometimes have a
high hull content which give a bitter or
unnatural flavor to ice cream. It is neces-
sary, therefore, to select critically choco-
late flavoring materials.
Manufacture of Chocolate
Chocolate ice cream varies widely in
composition, color, quality of flavor and
intensity of flavor. Two methods are
commonly used in making chocolate ice
cream: (1) addition of chocolate syrup
to the basic mix at the freezer, or (2)
making a chocolate mix to which the
flavoring materials are added to the mix
in the pasteurizer before processing.
In small operations it is more feasible
to use the second method, that is, to
make a chocolate mix. If a chocolate
syrup is used with the basic mix, care
should be exercised in preparing a syrup
which has the following characteristics:
(1) It should be easy to pour when
cooled to storage room temperature
(2) It should contain enough sugar to
(3) It should contain cocoa and sugar
in such proportions that when the
ice cream is properly flavored it also
will be properly sweetened, and
when added in the proper amount
it will not reduce the butterfat con-
tent of the ice cream below the
legal minimum standard. In Flori-
da, the minimum legal standard for
chocolate ice cream is 8 per cent
(4) It should contain total solids at
least equal to the total solids of the
mix which is usually about 40 per
A satisfactory chocolate syrup can be
made by mixing 3 pounds of cocoa, 5
pounds of sugar and 7 pounds of water,
heating to 1800 F. for 10 minutes and
then cooling to 400 F. or lower. In mak-
ing larger quantities of the syrup pro-
portionate amounts of cocoa, sugar and
water are used. The syrup is used at the
rate of 71/2 pounds to 421/2 pounds of
the basic mix.
Preparing a chocolate mix has an ad-
vantage in that the chocolate flavoring
material is more thoroughly incorporated.
Thus a more pronounced flavor is ob-
tained as a result of a finer dispersion of
the cocoa. However, a chocolate mix
must have more sugar than a vanilla mix
to compensate for the bitterness of the
cocoa. The butterfat content must be 8
40.0 41.5 41.0
The formulas given are based on the
assumption that the cocoa contains 83
per cent cocoa-solids-not-fat plus 17 per
cent cocoa fat and that the chocolate
liquor contains 50 per cent cocoa-solids-
not-fat and 50 per cent cocoa fat. It
should be kept in mind that in calculating
the chocolate mix formula that cocoa or
chocolate liquor containing lesser amounts
of cocoa fat must be used in proportion-
ately smaller amounts to maintain the
proper balance of cocoa-solids-not-fat and
cocoa fat. A vendor of chocolate flavor-
ing materials usually will be pleased to
supply the purchaser with a statement as
to the composition of his product with
respect to cocoa-solids-not-fat and cocoa
fat. If laboratory facilities are available,
it is advisable to make moisture and solids
Processing the Chocolate Mix
The usual processing is followed after
assembling the ingredients in the proper
proportion in the mix vat. The mix is
pasteurized at 1600 F. for 30 minutes
and homogenized at 1500 pounds pres-
sure on the first stage and 500 pounds
pressure on the second stage. The pres-
sure on the first stage may be further re-
duced if the first mix over the cooler ap-
pears to be too viscous. The mix should
be cooled to 400 F. or lower and aged 12
to 24 hours before freezing. From one-
third to one-half of the regular amount
vanilla extract used in a vanilla mix, add-
ed to the chocolate mix just before freez-
ing materially improves the flavor of the
chocolate ice cream.
A common complaint among ice cream
manufacturers is that chocolate mixes are
more difficult to whip than vanilla mixes.
Some of the possible causes and remedies
for this difficulty are as follows:
(1) Sugar content too high: The
amount of sugar needed depends upon the
amount of cocoa used as well as its de-
gree of bitterness. Seventeen per cent
should be sufficient. An increase in the

ANNUAL DAIRY FIELD DAY
STRESSES FEED PRODUCTION
Nearly 200 Florida dairymen and al-
lied groups participated in the seven-
teenth annual Dairy Field Day at the
University of Florida on May 1-2 and
enjoyed the varied activities which occur
in conjunction with it. Dr. John S. Allen,
vice-president of the University, and
Theo Datson, president of the Florida
Dairy Industry Association, co-sponsors
of the Field Day, welcomed the dairy-

and pasture projects in progress. These
included an irrigated field of Pangola
and White Dutch Clover as well as
Camelia and Southland oats, combina-

harrow, tractors, a pick-up loader and a
new commercial hay drier.
The evening program arranged by the
Florida Dairy Industry Association is al-
ways an enjoyable feature of the Dairy

The Friday morning session provided
discussion of homegrown feeds under
three headings pastures, hay drying,
and silages with Director H. G. Clay-
ton presiding. George Sixma of Lake

U. OF F. DAIRY HERD
Fourteen Guernsey heifers were ac-
quired recently by the Department of
Dairy Science from Florida breeders un-
der a program sponsored by the Florida
Guernsey Cattle Club. These animals
represent some of the top breeding of
Florida purebred Guernseys and com-
prise a foundation for building a quality
herd at the Dairy Research Unit.
This enlargement of the dairy herd was
made possible by the acquisition and re-
cent development of more adequate facili-
ties at the new Dairy Research Unit. As
these accommodations for additional ani-
mals became available, the Florida Guern-
sey Cattle Club initiated a program to
make available, at token prices, outstand-
ing females from Florida herds in order
to establish a good representation of
Guernsey cattle at the University. These
animals and their progeny will make
valuable contributions to future research
and teaching programs.
Participants in this Guernsey placement
program were: C. L. Bodden, Dinsmore;
Bautwell's Dairy, Inc., Lake Worth; Wil-
bur G. and Kathryn W. Casey, Clearwa-

The Dairy Products Laboratory was "at
home" on May 2. Other features of this
brief but successful Field Day included
a conference on regulations with regard
to anthrax, a meeting of the Dairy Herd
Improvement Association, an "early bird"
breakfast at which J. C. Huskisson and
members of the Livestock Committee of
the Florida State Fair made plans for the

IMPORTANCE OF INDIVIDUAL FEEDING AND INDIVIDUAL RECORDS
FOR EFFICIENT MILK PRODUCTION
P. T. Dix ARNOLD-Associate Dairy Husbandman
University of Florida, Agricultural Experiment Station
The net return from milk production
depends on the productive capacity of
the cows and the care and management
the dairyman gives them. Just as neces-
sary as well bred cows capable of high
yields a r e efficient
rations and intelli-
gent care. Without
these, good cows are
forced to become
breeding or improv-
ed feeding is the
more important in
production of Flori- P. T. D. ARNOLD
da cows is debatable.
There is no doubt that improved feeding
and management methods can increase
average production and profits.
Improved pasture of adapted forage
plants in sufficient acreages well fertilized
and properly managed is a prime essential
in profitable milk production in Florida.
Without such pasture feed costs soar to
the extent that little or no net profit re-
mains and cows "burn out," breed less
regularly, and have relatively short pro-
After providing the best possible pas-
ture for the herd, the cows individual re-
quirements need consideration. Too many
herds still are fed a measure full of pulp
and a scoop full of grain right down the
line regardless of size, milk production
or condition of pasture. A large cow
has a higher maintenance requirement
than a small cow. A 2 or 3 year old cow
has a growth requirement in addition to
maintenance that the mature cow does not
have. Low producers require less nutri-
ents than high producers while the cow
producing rich milks with a high butter-
fat percentage requires more nutrients
than a cow producing an equal amount
of low testing milk. Intelligent feeding
in the barn should take into consideration
size and age of cow, amount and rich-
ness of milk and condition of pasture or
quality and amount of hay and/or silage
Concentrate feeding rules such as one
pound of grain to three pounds of milk
produced are only approximate guides
but are much better than feeding all cows
alike. When pasture and roughages pro-
vide enough to satisfy maintenance, then
such rules apply fairly accurately. How-
ever, such conditions are encountered
only occasionally. When clover and mix-
ed clover and grass pastures are good or
very good and ample in acreage, 2 gal-
lon cows will actually require no grain
at all but under practical conditions are
usually given a handful of feed to coax
them into the stanchions. Three and 4
gallon cows will seldom consume more
than 6 or 7 pounds of grain daily on this
class of pasture.
When pastures are dry and brown and
small in area compared to the number of
grazing animals, then very little in the
way of nutrients can be expected and con-
centrate feeding rates will have to be
high-possibly one pound to 11/2 or 2
pounds of milk produced. This is ex-
pensixe and requires skill on the part of
the feeder to prevent digestive disturb-
ances and "going off in feed." Hay and/
or silage when pastures are poor usually
provide cheaper nutrients than grains and
mill feeds at the same time giving no
trouble with "off feed" and promoting
better reproductive performance.
High protein feeds are high priced and
the most expensive part of mixed dairy
feeds. Excellent clover and clover-grass
mixed pastures provide plenty of protein
so that grain mixtures need contain only
10 to 12 percent protein even for high
producing cows. When fertilized im-
proved grass pastures are luxuriant and
abundant in amount, grain mixtures con-
taining 12 to 14 percent protein will am-
ply provide for the cows requirements
for this nutrient. As pastures become dry
and scanty and the herbage becomes ma-
ture and tough the plants have lower pro-
tein content and mixed feeds will have to
contain 16 to 20 percent or more to bal-
ance the low protein content of the
roughage. This is especially true for
Keeping Records Pays
As a guide and aid to Florida Dairy-
men and Dairy Plants in more efficient
and successful operation, the Florida
Dairy Industry Association adopted an 8-
point efficiency program for recommen-
dation to all the Florida Dairy Industry

ommendations from various active com-
mittees of the Association are as follows:

heavy producing cows which have to con-
sume at least 11/2 times as much digest-
ible protein in their rations as they pro-
duce in the milk.
For most efficient and profitable milk
production, cows must be fed individual-
ly according to their requirements and
according to the pasture and roughage
available so as not to overfeed or under-
feed either in amount or protein con-
tent. The efficient dairyman must know
his cows, his pastures and his feeds to
keep each cow doing an economical and
proficient job of producing milk.

IMPORTANCE OF RECORDS
To really know a cow means more than
recognizing her by name or number. The
real herdsman will know her approxi-
mate age, her last calving date, her breed-
ing history, her current production rate
and previous location record, the butter-
fat content of her milk, the amount of
feed she consumes, her general disposi-
tion and how profitable she is. Few peo-
ple can remember with accuracy all these
facts for more than a dozen or so cows.
For an intelligent job of keeping these
facts available at all times, written rec-
ords known as a "herdbook" will be nec-
essary for the competent management of
the herd. There are a dozen good herd-
book record systems and they all require
systematic daily entries to be kept com-
plete and up-to-date. This takes but a
few minutes most days in the month.
One of the best record systems devel-
oped and proved over a 46 year period
is the Daily Herd Improvement Associa-
tion. It has the advantage over most
other systems in that the supervisor visits
the farm monthly and calculates the
monthly milk and butterfat production
and summarizes the records of feedstuffs
consumed, the costs thereof, and the val-
ue of the milk above or below feed costs.
Yearly milk records and lifetime records
are also summarized as the testing year
ends or the cow goes out of the herd.
With this type of individual record the
herdsman can be well informed on each
individual in the herd and be in position
to start on a definite herd improvement
program as provided for in numbers 2

gram sponsored by the F. D. I. A.

A Tribute To The Dairy Department Of
The State Department Of Agriculture
During the last twenty years, the dairy
industry of Florida has not only made a
very rapid growth, but it has also been
built on a substantial foundation.
Today, the Florida Dairy Industry is
a 50 million dollar going concern. If
you add the value of the cows, land, and
buildings devoted to dairy work, the in-
vestment reaches an almost unbelievable
amount not far from 160 million dollars.
In addition, the dairymen, milk plant
operators, and ice cream manufacturers
employ about 25,000 men and women.
This in itself is a sizable payroll each
From time to time the Dairy Industry
and the public would like to pay tribute
to those who have given their best toward
building this industry. Our present tribute
is to Honorable Nathan Mayo, Commis-
sioner of Agriculture, John M. Scott,
Chief Dairy Supervisor, and his staff.
The six dairy supervisors who earnestly
trive to help build and protect the dairy
industry so that the industry of this State
will rate among the leaders in the nation
are: Lewis T. Smith, Jacksonville; Alex
G. Shaw, Tallahassee; H. H. Rothe,
Gainesville; John D. Robinson, Plant
City; J. W. Saunders, Key West, and R.
R. Hood, Pensacola. In addition, Mr.
Scott has three girls in the office, Mrs.
Ora M. Stanley, Mrs. Marjorie H. Schis-
ler, and Miss Mary Goodbred, to handle
correspondence, issue licenses and per-
mits, and compile statistical records and
data, such as, the gallonage of frozen
desserts manufactured and sold within

now enacted applying to the production,
processing, and distribution of milk,
cream, and milk products. The ability of
the present staff has been proved by the
cooperative spirit that exists among the
supervisors, County and City Health De-
partment Officials, and the dairymen.
All the supervisors are specially trained
in sanitation work and are continuously
getting new and better ideas of the latest
methods and equipment by attending
short courses, field trips and expositions.
One of the many valuable services the
State Department offers is blueprints of
barns, milkhouses, etc., which are fur-
nished free to anyone wishing to build or
remodel, and these supervisors are trained
and always ready to help those interested
in interpreting, altering or adjusting the
specifications to meet both state and city
requirements. To be successful, a super-
visor must know a great deal more than
to look for dirt. He has to know some-
thing about animal diseases, know grasses
and how to grow them, and should be
well informed in building, mechanical,
and electrical engineering to be of serv-

Milk Is Your Best Food Buy
DR. HOWARD H. WILKOWSKE
Assistant Dairy Technologist
Florida Agricultural Experiment Station
In these days when all of us are concerned with the high cost
of living, and especially price increases, let us not lose sight
of the fact that MILK is still the best food buy for the money.
Milk is our most nearly perfect food. Dairy products, and es-
pecially milk, are low-priced items in the diet when one con-
siders the nutritional value. Milk contains all the food ele-
ments required for growth, vitality and health. It has gen-
erous quantities of proteins for growth, carbohydrates and fats
for body warmth and energy, as well as minerals and vitamins
which are absolutely essential to the diet. It has been estimated
that three fourths of our total national requirements for calcium
in the diet comes from dairy products. General amounts of vita-
mins are present which help fight disease and build up our
resistance. With all these vital constituents present in milk it is
no wonder that milk is nature's most perfectly balanced food.
Perhaps the reason for this is because milk is the only food
produced in nature which is intended to be used exclusively and
solely as a food. There is no waste in milk as every drop can
be used, and the cost is very low in proportion to food value,
and few of us stop to think that there are two pounds of milk
in every quart. A much larger food budget would be needed
in the average home if the vitamins, minerals and calories sup-
plied by milk had to be secured from other sources. Nutri-
tionists recommend that at least 20% of the food dollar should
be spent for dairy products. Careful research shows that for
every 20 cents of the food dollar spent for food a family will
get twice that amount or 40% of the total daily food require-
ments necessary for good health. Therefore, from a nutritional
point of view we could actually pay considerably more for milk
and still be getting our money's worth when compared with
other foods. Families on low-cost diets need a generous allow-
ance of milk and milk products as these diets are limited in va-
riety and lack vital essentials. Milk products can make up that
deficit at a low cost.
In recent years the price of bottled milk has risen less than
almost any other food product. According to the Milk Industry
Foundation, during the past twelve years the price of milk has
risen 92% while the price of all foods has risen 129% for the
same period. Since the per capital disposable income is 183%
more for that period, the average consumer's income now will
buy about one and one-half times as much milk as during the
1935-1939 period. A typical hour's work in 1919 would earn
3 quarts of milk, in 1939, 5 quarts of milk, and today the same
amount of work will earn 7 quarts of milk. Today the average
worker labors less than 9 minutes to earn a quart of milk as
contrasted to 20 minutes in 1919.
Milk is one of the outstanding food buys today. Milk prices
have risen much less than the average for all foods. The record
of milk as a low-cost food has been maintained despite the fact
that milk processors wages, operating expenses and prices of
the raw product have been at high levels. Research gives great-
er emphasis to the value of milk as a mainstay in the diet of

country-wide observance of June as Dairy

ern States during the month of April
which was terminated by his visits to the
three Dairy Council Units in Florida.
Familiarizing himself with the situation
in the South, Mr. Hult also added to the

Mr. Hult was elected to his present
position in 1936 after 20 years experience
as head of a dairy company. In 1940,
he received the Goodrich Award for dis-
tinguished service in the dairy field. Mrs.
Hult was formerly director of a local unit
of the Dairy Council and visited Jack-
sonville when the Jacksonville Dairy
Council was organized.
Accompanied by his wife, Mr. Hult
arrived in Jacksonville in time to attend
the supper meeting of the Board of Di-
rectors and their wives of the Jackson-
ville Dairy Council on April 7. On the
following evening he addressed the An-
nual Meeting which was attended by ap-
proximately 250 members and friends of
the Council in Jacksonville.
On April 10, Mr. and Mrs. Hult were
the honor guests at a dinner meeting at-
tended by the Board of Directors of the
Dairy Council of Tampa and St. Peters-
burg area. The wives of the Directors
were guests at this meeting, also. Mr.
Hult addressed the group and explained
the outstanding features of the program
of the Dairy Council on a country-wide
level, pointing out that Florida leads the
nation in its increase of the per capital
consumption of milk.

Members of the Dairy Industry throughout the State are invited to please
send to the "Florida Dairy News" all news about dairies, dairying and the
good people who devote their time, talents and money to this great industry.
FIRST CALF ARRIVES IN
A big to-do was made over the fine
heifer calf born recently on Hillcrest
Ranch, the Jersey farm of Ben Waring,
F.D.I.A. member, Madison, Florida, be-
cause it was the first calf dropped in the
artificial breeding program of the Geor-
gia-Florida Breeding Association. Brooks
and Lowndes County in South Georgia
and Madison County in Florida make up
the Association. Mr. Waring is a direc-
tor of the organization.
Beginning operation June 1, 1951, ap-
proximately 1000 cows will have been
bred during its first year. The value of
the work of such an association is in-
estimable. The end result will be the
improvement of dairy and beef cattle
and the elimination of the necessity of
a farmer with a small herd to purchase
an expensive bull. The joining fee is
50 cents per cow and the service charge,
$7.00 for each cow bred. Only the north-
ern part of Madison County can partici-
pate under present operational limitations
but the Association is making sound and
Testing Of Cattle
Vital To Health
In a recent interview Dr. C. L. Camp-
bell, Director of Brucellosis and Tuber-
culosis for the State Live Stock Sanitary
Board, emphasized the importance of
testing cattle for these diseases and the
risks to humans consuming the products.
Obviously families owning cows whose
milk is being used without pasteuriza-
tion are most susceptible if the cows are
diseased because inspection of beef under
competent supervision and processing of
milk under rigid local or county ordi-
nances removes all but a negligible risk
to the consumer.
While the percentage of brucellosis
cases compared with the number of cat-
tle tested has increased, the risk to a hu-
man occurs only when he eats uninspected
meat. The incidence of tuberculosis has
greatly decreased and this is due in a
great part to the cooperation of all agen-
cies working for early detection and
proper treatment. Pasteurization and
proper testing can further improve the
SHORT COURSE FOR MILK LAB-
At the same time that the Annual
Meeting of the Florida Dairy Industry
Association is in session in Miami, a
valuable short course for Milk Laboratory
Technicians and State Board of Health
employees will be in progress in Gaines-
The April-May issue of the Dairy
News gave an outline of the complete
week's program, June 9-13, which is
sponsored jointly by the University of
Florida and the F.D.I.A. Plant Commit-
tee. Hugh Butner of the State Board of
Health and Professor Walter Krienke of
the University of Florida Dairy Depart-
ment have arranged a comprehensive se-
ries of lectures, demonstrations and lab-
oratory practice along with discussions
which will be extremely valuable.

(2) Homogenizing pressure too high:
because of the greater tendency for the
fat in some chocolate mixes to clump ex-
cessively, sometimes the mistake is made
of homogenizing the chocolate mix at the
same pressure as the vanilla mix. Usual-
ly reduced pressure on the first stage is
recommended for the chocolate mix, par-
ticularly if the mix shows a tendency to
be abnormally viscous.
(3) High acid cocoa: Viscosity is
usually high due to unneutralized acids
normally present in cocoa, especially in
American processed cocoa. Alkali used in
the Dutch process tends to give lower vis-
cosity mixes because of the neutralizing
action of the alkali.
(4) High acid mix: The chocolate mix
sometimes serves as an outlet for return-
ed dairy products. This practice some-
times results in high mix acidity. Because
it is not always possible to titrate choco-
late mix, some manufacturers have adopt-
ed as standard practice the addition of
sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) at the
rate of 1 pound per 1000 pounds of mix,
thus insuring a substantial reduction of
(5) Egg yolk powder and emulsifiers:
Slow whipping can be improved by the
addition of as much as one-half percent
of egg yolk powder or up to one per cent
frozen whole yolk. The difficulty of slow
whipping also may be improved by the
use of certain emulsifiers.
Among consumers, chocolate ice cream
is gaining a better reputation. Over-
flavoring and the use of inferior grades
of chocolate flavoring materials is still
too prevalent and is responsible to some
extent for the failure of chocolate ice
cream sales to soar. It appears that the
present trend is in the direction of a mild-
er chocolate flavor in which less flavor-
ing of a higher quality is being used.

WHAT IS YOUR FEED COST PER GALLON OF MILK?
WHAT IS YOUR FEED COST PER GALLON OF MILK?
More and more Florida dairymen are realizing that more attention must be
given to feed cost per gallon of milk, rather than the cost per bag of feed. Low feed
cost per gallon of milk requires sound planning and sound feeding based on a com-
plete program-a program that reduces "cow-turnover"
in the herd and achieves the greatest possible milk
production per cow. Naturally such a program re-
:luires close attention to herd replacements, care of the
dIrv cow, and a sound pasture and roughage program.
These coupled with SECURITY DAIRY FEED mean E
low feed cost per gallon of milk. I
