ISSUES FACING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
By Richard B. Russell, U. S. Senator from Georgia
(Editor's Note. In view of the coming national election, November 4th, we believe our Dairy
News readers will welcome an opportunity to review this brief summary of national issues by
this great leader from our neighbor state. Dick Russell was elected to the Senate in 1932 and his
unbroken record of service has placed him fifth in seniority. He is Chairman of Senate Armed
Services Committee, one of the most important and powerful committees on Capitol Hill. For 19
years he has served as chairman of the Senate committee handling the agriculture appropriations
bill. He also is a member of the Joint Senate-House Atomic Energy Committee and the Senate
Democratic Policy Committee.)
"The real issues facing the American people today, are those which rightfully
should unite men rather than divide them.
"If there be one universal yearning in the minds and hearts of the American
people, it is the desire to avoid the calamity of a third world war. Insofar as our in-
ternational relations are concerned, the strength which must come from unity is the
only way to peace.
"Whatever sacrifice may be entailed, we must maintain a defense system adequate
to our needs.
"We cannot escape the responsibilities of world leadership, but in dealing with the
problems of today's troubled world, we should ever be mindful of the limitations of
the economic system which is the basic source of our greatness and the foundation
upon which our precious way of life is erected. If we are to survive, it must be con-
served and protected. National spending, including our assistance to other free people,
must be carefully weighed against our ability to pay and produce.
"No honest candidate for public office in these times can consider the tempting
prospect of promising 'all things to all men.' Our future security depends upon our
self-restraint and ability to cooperate with one another. Our cherished liberties were
not easily won. In today's troubled world they will not be easily held. Our hopes for
salvation can only be realized through willingness to serve and sacrifice.
"The very foundation stone of popular government is the confidence of the peo-
ple in their public servants.
"Fraud, corruption, and divided loyalties cannot be tolerated in positions of trust
"Among the dangers to our continued freedom is any unchecked trend toward
the concentration of all of the powers of Government in the National Capital. The
founding fathers, who had suffered the tyrannies of overcentralized government, wise-
ly sought to define and limit the Federal power.
"I am a Jeffersonian Democrat who believes in the greatest practicable degree of
local self-government. The maintenance of the rights of the States in an indissoluble
union is our protection against that loss of individual rights and liberties which has
always followed undue centralization of authority."
Government As A "Milk Cow"
The average man that I encounter all over the country regards government as a
sort of great milk cow with its head in the clouds eating air and pouring forth heavy
cream for everybody on earth!
With the cow concept of government unchallenged and unclarified, in school
and out, our chances to preserve the structure of American freedom are absolutely nil.
Until the nature and purpose of government in the mind of the average man is
re-instituted in the terms of the blueprint of this republic, there is no hope at all of
preserving the structure of American freedom!
CLARENCE E. MANION
Author "Blueprint For Freedom"
"Vote As You Please, But Please Vote." Americans must do their share in getting
and keeping good government. A citizen who serves his country loves his country.
Few people have the American privilege of electing their own officers by their
own individual ballots. History proves that Statism, in any of its forms, comes only
when people are indifferent to the loss of their personal liberties. This lack of interest
and apathy in voting paves the way for the loss of any nation's most precious posses-
sions its liberty and freedom.

For Our Youth Readers
Your Future Is What You Make It
Note: This is the sixth of a series of discussions on "You and Industry." Both parents
and young people should find them of practical interest.
In the first five of these discussions we have stressed the importance of a careful
choice of a vocation and considered the most vital factors in the preparation for one's
life work. The record you make in school, both in your academic work and in your
cooperation with your leaders and fellow-students, has been emphasized.
Don't Overlook the Extra-Curricular
You may think of the extra-curricular
activities at school as fun. Of course, they
are. They will also help you enjoy life
more in the future. And they offer further
preparation for your future work.
If you want to be a lawyer, a politician
or a clergyman, take part in debates and
such activities as the "Boy-State" and
"Girl-State" projects. F.F.A. and F.H.A.
projects can be fun as well as profit, too,
because of the spirit of rivalry fostered by
these organizations. 4-H Club work for
both boys and girls can contribute to your
program of preparation. In fact, any of
these are good experience for anyone who
hopes to be a leader in any field.
Sports will help you to keep healthy,
one essential to success, and to learn to
get along with others to work as a
member of a team. Music, dramatics, art
and photography clubs, the school news-
paper and other activities offer excellent
Through these activities, you can also
develop and demonstrate qualities of
leadership. Starting a specific project and
carrying it through to completion will
provide you with a background of experi-
ence which will stand you in good stead
when you apply for a job or start out on
a career in any field. It will also develop
your self-confidence and prove your abil-
ity to assume responsibility.
A high school girl saw an opportunity
to help out when her class wished to raise
money for a gift to the school. She or-
ganized and directed a campaign of sell-
ing with teams in competition with each
other. As a result of this project, a maga-
zine publisher offered her a sales-promo-
tion position in his organization.
Increase Your Hobby Horsepower
Your hobbies reveal a great deal about
you because you pursue them of your own
free will. Are you using your leisure time
profitably or wasting it? Are you spend-
4 FLORIDA DAIRY NEWS
ing your after-school hours in activities
that will be valuable to you in the future?
Have you looked into interesting hobby
Although some hobbies are expensive
they may be good investments. Others
actually pay their way and may even con-
tribute a small profit. Most will pay off
in dividends of knowledge and in the
satisfaction that comes from achievement.
You may select your hobby for its voca-
tional value or you may develop a skill
doing something for fun that will defi-
nitely affect your success in a business or
profession. Through stamp collecting you
can learn about printing and engraving.
Photography may become either your pro-
fession or a recreation. Gardening may
merely satisfy your urge to see things
growing and your desire for beauty and
orderliness as well -or it may start you
toward a career in farming or landscape
The story is told of a 14-year-old boy
who was fascinated with a work-bench
and some cabinet-making tools. Soon he
had made a book-case and some small
tables for his mother. She liked them and
so did her neighbors and friends, who
were very glad to pay for some like them.
He had so many orders that his hobby be-
came very profitable. It was only natural
that after finishing school he applied for
work in a furniture factory, and his hobby
record easily landed him a job.
Hobbies often help in unexpected ways.
Many have met future employers through
working in church activities or helping to
raise money for a community-fund drive.
Others have been able to place themselves
on a friendly basis at once with prospec-
tive employers through mutual interest in
a sport. Certainly there is much satisfac-
tion in having a hobby-something we
do for fun- turn into a practical aid to
success, whether it has developed either
good personality traits or health or voca-
Florida's Six Member 4-H Dairy Team
Describes European Travel Experiences
Four members of Florida's 1951 U. S. Championship 4-H Dairy Judging Team together
with their coach, Florida State Extension Dairyman Clarence Reaves, and Duval County Agri-
cultural Agent Albert Lawton as assistant coach, spent an eventful four weeks in Ireland, England,
Scotland and several countries of the European Continent during June and July as guests of the
Florida Dairy Industry and friends.
Members of the team- Ray and Warren Alvarez of Jacksonville, Paul Thornhill of Dundee,
and Steve Simmons of St. Johns County, by reason of their first place honors won at the 1951 U.
S. National Cattle Congress and Dairy Show--were to represent the 4-H Clubs of the United
States in international dairy judging competition at the British Royal Cattle Sho'w.
However, just as the group were planning to leave for England, word was received in the
United States that the competition at the British Show would have to be cancelled because of
Foot and Mouth Disease outbreaks.
Florida Dairy Industry Association Directors as sponsors of the team's travel fund hastily
conferred with contributors and authorized the team to proceed on the long planned and anti-
Those who read the team's account of this eventful journey published herewith as a report
and expression of appreciation to those who made the trip possible for them, till recognize
both the immediate and long term value of this unusual experience, for these and countless other
future young dairymen of Florida.
The team's report follows:
"It was a great experience and all of
us enjoyed it thoroughly. We made the
trip over from New York by air Ireland
was our first stop. We returned to this
country by boat. We left in the third
week in June and we returned to the
United States, July 29. We saw many in-
teresting things, talked with many friend-
ly people and learned a great deal about
dairy farming in Europe.
"In Ireland we visited farms, Blarney
Castle near Cork and other castles and in-
teresting places, and learned about the
two breeds of cattle that are native to that
country. We found Blarney Castle a very
interesting old place and we followed the
tradition of visitors and kissed the famous
Blarney Stone, which, as you probably
know, is supposed to bring good luck.
About the Irish cattle The Kerry breed
is the only native dairy breed left in Ire-
land, having been developed in the moun-
tains of Kerry County in Southwestern
Ireland. Other cattle on the Emerald Isle
include Dairy Shorthorns, Friesians, and
Jerseys. The Kerry breed is the survivor
of the ancient black cattle of Western
Europe, and has been called 'the poor
man's cow' because it can survive on
sparse vegetation of poor mountain soils
of Ireland. Like our native Florida cattle,
they developed a wiriness and hardiness
that enables them to live and do fairly
well under adverse conditions. The Ker-
ries are very attractive cattle, with their
black, satiny hair coats, and soft skins.
They are somewhat angular and deer-like
in build, but the best herds have good
chests, are well-ribbed, have rather large
udders, and weigh about 900 pounds at
maturity. We saw the herd of 40 pure-
bred Kerry cows at the Muchross Abbey
estate in the beautiful lake and mountain
country around Killarney, and were told
that the cows give an average of 600 gal-
lons of milk a year on pasture, hay, grass
silage, and a little grain. Incidentally, the
Dexter breed, which is the smallest British
breed, also originated in Ireland. The
Dexter cattle are hardy, compact, and
short-legged, and are said to be the fore-
runners of the Guinea breed, some of
which are still raised in Florida.
From Belfast, Ireland, we went by boat
to Glasgow, Scotland, and thence by train
to Ayrshire, native home of the famous
cattle of the same name. In Ayrshire we
had the pleasure of visiting Hobsland
Farms, owned by Allan Barr, an inter-
nationally known judge. Here we saw 60
cows of the breed being milked by ma-
chine and learned that they were making
high production records. He has sold
prize cattle all over the world. They were
large, straight-top, strong cows with won-
derful square-shaped level udders for
which Ayrshires are known. The build-
ings on the Scotch farms are mostly of
stone with the house and barn frequently
connected and facing a small paved court
yard. We were very much surprised when
we stepped from the Barr's milking barn
into a small court yard and then walked
directly into their living room. We enjoy-
ed talking with Mr. and Mrs. Barr and
their daughter and the cup of tea we had
with them. That evening we saw a small
herd of the shaggy, picturesque, Scottish
West Highland cattle. Twilight lasted
until eleven o'clock.
"We also visited Dunduff Farm, owned
by J. W. Montgomerie, where we saw
125 more fine Ayrshires and observed this
outstanding dairy farmer and his crew cut-
ting and storing grass silage in a trench
silo. Our visit with the Montgomeries
was indeed a pleasant one. Sitting before
a hearth fire in the Montgomeries' living-
room, we looked out of the big picture
window and saw the beautiful Ayrshires
grazing on the green slopes right down to
the Firth of Clyde. And steaming down
the Firth of Clyde at the time were our
big battleship, the Missouri, and three

Montgomerie home will long be remem-

"We visited the Channel Islands Jer-
sey and Guernsey-where the famous
dairy breeds of those names were devel-
oped. All registered Jerseys and Guern-
seys in America trace their ancestry to
cattle on those islands. Jersey, the largest
of the Channel Islands, is, like Guernsey,
near the French coast. It is only twelve
miles long and six miles wide, and its
principal crops, besides its fine cattle, are
potatoes and tomatoes. Of 10,000 cattle
on Jersey, all but 100 are registered. We
saw many famous cows and bulls on the
small Jersey Island farms we visited. We
saw the famous cow, Pavillon's Mervia
2nd. This cow is 16 years old, has had 14
calves and is now in calf, and is still pro-
ducing heavily. Another grand old cow,

Dairy Month Queen Is Honored
On Tour of Florida and Georgia
The Florida Dairy Industry's charming Queen Mary and her equally attractive
identical twin sister "Mildred" received the admiration and acclaim of their Jackson-
ville Dairy Industry subjects and distinguished guests at a royal reception party in
Jacksonville and of the Georgia State Dairy Convention in Savannah on their recent
royal tour as guests of the June Dairy Month Committee of the Florida Dairy Indus-
Mary Butler, Miami high school girl,
was elected Florida's State June Dairy
Month Queen at the annual convention of
the Florida Dairy Industry Association in
Miami Beach, June 12th.
Sponsored by the Miami Dairy Month
Committee, Mary, who had but a short
time previously won the title of Miss
Miami Shores, won the Dairy Industry
Queen Contest over contestants from Pen-
sacola, Gainesville, St. Petersburg and
It was not known at the time of the
contest that Mary had a twin sister. It
was later told but not confirmed that her
sister Mildred (an identical twin) had
intended to enter the Dairy Industry Con-
test and that because of sickness on the
night of the contest she sent Mary to rep-
resent her. An examination of the ac-
companying pictures will evidence the
fact that had this happened, no judge
would have known the difference.
After it was learned that the Dairy In-
dustry really had two queens instead of
one, both the girls were invited to parti-
cipate in a tour to Jacksonville and the
Georgia State Dairy Convention, which
had been promised the winner.
These most attractive young ladies won
the hearts and admiration of all who had
opportunity to meet them. Especially two
young men, Ray and Warren Alvarez of
Jacksonville, who were members of the
official reception and entertainment com-
mittee for the girls upon their arrival and
stay in Jacksonville. Ray and Warren had
just returned from a European trip as
members of Florida's National 4-H Club
Dairy Judging Team.
The Jacksonville reception and lunch-
eon for the queen, her sister and her
maids of honor was sponsored by the
Florida Dairy Industry Association June
Dairy Month Committee. Mr. Jack Dew,
Chairman of the Committee, presided and
was assisted by Andy Lay, F.D.I.A. Exe-

QUEEN ACCLAIMED BY GEORGIANS

received and were almost adopted as
Georgia Queens when the girls disclosed
that they are regular summer visitors to
Georgia to see their grandparents.

Record Participation In Dairy Month
Activities by State Chairman
Jack Dew, Florida's dynamic chairman
of the State June Dairy Month program
for 1952, has issued a letter to various
local Dairy Industry Chairmen and Junior
Chamber of Commerce Dairy Month ac-
tivities chairmen praising the fine pro-
grams held in various parts of the State.
Expressing the belief that there was
both greater participation and better plan-
ned activities than in any previous year,
Mr. Dew urged advance planning for a
still better program in 1953.
Mr. Dew said the State Committee was
very proud of a communication from the
1952 National Dairy Month Chairman
in which he commended Florida for its
splendid Dairy Month program which
compared favorably with many of the
best State Programs.
"I am grateful," Mr. Dew said, "for
the confidence shown in our State Com-
mittee by the Dairy Industry Association
by my reappointment as Chairman for
1953 and I want all who helped make this
year's program the success that it was to
know that their efforts were greatly ap-
Much Progress In Dairy Development
Demonstrated at Chipley Dairy Show
Washington and Gadsden County 4-H and F.F.A. Judging
Teams Win Dairy Association Trophies
Sixty-three dairy animals were entered by 4-H and F.F.A. members and adults
from 12 Northwest Florida Counties in the West Florida Dairy Show held August
14th at Chipley, Florida.
Officials of the Show said this topped any previous participation in this seven
year old event. This Show was also held to be the best from the standpoint of quality
of animals entered. All animals were in good condition and had been tested for TB and
Bangs before the Show.
William Schack, Greenwood teen-ager,
won the highest honors of the Show by
winning both the 4-H and F.F.A. Jersey
Championships, the Junior Champion and
the Grand Champion of the Show. Wil-
liam won the Grand Championship in
competition with his father who showed
the championship animal (a Jersey) in
the adult division.
Charles Crutchfield of Jackson County
showed the Reserve Champion.
In the Guernsey class, a youthful Chip-
ley High School lass, Lynn Fitzpatrick,
came through to beat her masculine com-
petitors and take the championship ribbon
for the junior divisions. The same animal,
a calf, won Lynn the beautiful Times-
Union trophy, an engraved sterling silver
platter, for having the best fitted 4-H or
The $75 awarded for the Guernsey
Grand Champion went to adult exhibitor
Lee Stanton of Washington County.
Young Lynn Fitzpatrick had the Reserve
Guernsey Champion. Special prizes of
registered bulls in both the Jersey and
Guernsey junior divisions, donated by
the Breeders Associations, were taken by
Lynn Fitzpatrick and Charles Crutchfield
of Jackson County, winner of Reserve
Grand Champion Jersey junior honors.
Since Schack had already won an animal
in a preceding show, runner-up Crutch-
field was awarded the prize.
In the F.F.A. judging competition, the
four-member team from Havana piled up
the top percentage followed by Quincy,
Marianna, Frink and Vernon. Best indi-
vidual for the Future Farmers was Bruce
Hasty of Vernon with Bobby Nichols,
Frink, second, and David Stalling, Ha-
In the 4-H judging contest, Washing-
ton County won the blue ribbon with the
two Holmes County teams, Escambia and
Walton, taking the next places. Carthel
Hodge of Holmes had the top individual
score followed by Geraldine Hicks, Wash-
ington, and Bobby Wilkerson, Walton,
and Oscar O'Steen, Washington, who tied
E. T. Lay presented a beautiful revolv-
ing trophy to each of the two 4-H and
F.F.A. winning judging teams on behalf
of the Florida Dairy Industry Association.
Each trophy will be retained permanently
by the first team winning it twice.
The winning 4-H team from Washing-
ton County consisted of Julian Webb, Jr.,
Gus Duncan, Sherrill Cobb and Oscar
Members of the F.F.A. team from the
Havana chapter included David Stallings,
Carl Barber and Bobby Holder.
A total of $750, an all-time high in
prize money, was awarded by show offi-
In addition to the cash prizes, trophies,
and the registered calves mentioned above,
the adult division drew valuable grass
seed and feed prizes. Fifty pounds of Ar-
gentine bahia grass seed was contributed
by the North Florida Experiment Station
at Quincy and Feed Dealers of the area
provided liberal feed prizes.
The West Florida Show, open to coun-
ties and F.F.A. Chapter from Gadsden
County to Escambia County inclusive, is
sponsored by the State Department of

It may seem a bit unusual but it is a
fact that two girls and two boys consti-
tute this year's Florida State 4-H Club
Dairy Judging Team which are to repre-
sent Florida in the 1952 National 4-H
Dairy Cattle Judging Contest during the
National Cattle Congress in Waterloo,
As the Dairy News goes to press, this
team is already in Waterloo preparing for
Members of the team are: Inez Thorn-
hill, Dundee (Polk County); Marjorie
Lamb, Ocala; Clyde Crutchfield, Marian-
na; and David Page, Fernandina. They
were accompanied to Waterloo by their
coach, State Extension Dairyman C. W.
Reaves, who successfully piloted Florida.s
1951 team to the National Championship,
and Miss Helen Holstein, Food Econo-
mist of Florida State University, as chap-
erone for the girls.
The team members all come from dairy
families which has been a factor in their
early training and enthusiasm for dairy
animals. In order to qualify for the State
Team each member won a top place in
the 1952 State 4-H Dairy Show in Orlan-
do last February and again at the State
Dairy Judging Contest held at the Uni-
versity of Florida in June.
Spurred on with the incentive instilled
by the example of Florida's 1951 team
which won the National Championship
and a tour of European dairy countries,
the team has been engaged in special
training and practice as a group in prep-
aration for the National Contest under
the supervision of Mr. Reaves and other
County Extension Agents. Mr. Reaves
said he planned to give the team several
days special judging training at the Mid-
South Fair Cattle Show at Memphis while
enroute to Waterloo. He is also expected
to make a number of other judging prac-
tice visits at well known Ayrshire, Brown
Swiss and Holstein herds between Mem-
phis and Waterloo. These breeds are
not common in Florida.
According to Reaves, the National
Dairy Cattle Congress will have on exhibit
over 2,000 of the nation's finest dairy
cattle representing all Dairy breeds.
The team's expenses to Waterloo are
sponsored by the State Department of Ag-
riculture and the Florida Dairy Industry
Association Educational Fund subscribed
by various members and friends of the

FLORIDA 4-H PROGRAM
SHOWS 100% INCREASE
During the ten year period 1942 to
1952, the 4-H Club Program in Florida
has shown a most gratifying growth. Ac-
cording to a report of Woodrow Brown,
State 4-H Club Agent, a total present
4-H Club membership in Florida is 27,-
Mr. Brown reports that "in 1942 there
were 423 boys and 239 girls enrolled in
dairy cattle projects, with a total of 653
animals involved. In 1951 there were
971 boys and 228 girls enrolled in dairy
projects with 1,371 animals involved. In
1942 there was a total enrollment of 4,-
411 boys carrying a total of 5,190 pro-
jects as compared to 9,839 boys enrolled
carrying 13,246 projects in 1951."
It is interesting to note that while the
increase in dairy projects kept pace with
the total increase of slightly over 100%,
there was a slight reduction in the enroll-
ment of girls in dairy projects.

INTEREST OF FARM GIRLS
IN DAIRYING PLEASING
From an Editorial, Florida Times-Union
"Despite the trend toward mechaniza-
tion and specialization in agriculture, a
big percentage of farm operations remains
a family matter. The most successful
farms are those managed with the intelli-
gent and cooperative interest of husbands
and wives, sisters and brothers.
"That women and girls can hold their
own in any field is proved by results of
the statewide 4-H Club dairy judging con-
test at Gainesville. The four winners, who
will form the team to represent Florida
at the National Cattle Congress at Water-
loo, Iowa, include two boys and two girls.
"News reports failed to say whether
this is unusual or just to be expected in
farm youth programs. Nevertheless, it
has its pleasing aspects.
"No phase of farming is more rigorous
than dairying. If the women-folk object
a mere male is likely to be discouraged
from entering this field. Active participa-
tion of 4-H Club girls in dairy judging
contests augurs well for expansion of this
important industry in Florida."

Daytona Beach Dairies Cooperate
In Teachers Visitation Program
With J. A. Taylor (Borden Manager) serving as chairman, the Dairies of Day-
tona Beach worked together to put on both an enjoyable and profitable program as
a part of a recent Chamber of Commerce and Public Schools sponsored business visi-
tation day for teachers.
The program was held Friday, Sep-
tember 5th, just prior to the opening of
Volusia County Schools. In spite of a
very bad day with some of the season's
heaviest rain continuing well into the af-
ternoon, a splendid group of over twenty
teachers and school lunch managers and
supervisors participated in the dairy visit.
The Daytona Borden Plant was select-
ed for the plant visitation and place of a
general meeting. Raymond Beville, presi-

engaged in private business in Durham,
North Carolina, 1933 to 1942 and was
employed with the American Tobacco

member of the Methodist Church, Vice-
President of the Sweetwater Civic Club,
a Director of the Dairy Council of Hills-
borough and Pinellas Counties, a mem-

DAIRY RESEARCH FINDINGS
REPORTED BY DR. BECKER
Among the many results of Dairy
Science research disclosed at the recent
American Dairy Science Annual Meeting,
the following are pointed out by Dr. R. B.
Becker, University of Florida Dairy Hus-
bandman, as of special interest to Florida
(a) A progress report on production
records of cross bred dairy cattle was
given by J. P. LaMaster (Clemson Col-
lege). Sires were proved, and purebred
heifers from the same dams served as a
basis for comparison. Results to date ap-
peared to indicate that crossbreds were
approximately intermediate in production
between that for the respective parents,
capacity of bulls being measured by pro-
duction of their daughters.
(b) In controlled temperature rooms
at the University of Missouri, S. Brody
determined that Brahman cattle do not
"sweat" more per unit of surface area
than do European cattle, but had 12%
more surface per 100-pounds live weight.
This had an advantage at temperatures of
60 to 105 degrees Fahrenheit, but a dis-
advantage below 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
(c) A new pregnancy test for cows
which was 91% efficient has been de-
veloped at the Oregon Agricultural Ex-
(d) Development of oxidized flavor
in milk was delayed significantly in milk
from cows on fresh green feeds, parti-
cularly oats pastures, in investigations at

Letters to the Editor
There seems to be so much misunder-
standing and misinformation going
around concerning the price of milk in
Florida and its comparison to prices in
other areas of the country, I would like
the privilege of calling to the attention
of the readers of the Florida Dairy In-
dusty some facts on comparative milk
prices which appeared in a recent issue
of the "Milk Dealer" magazine.
These figures show, in my opinion, that
there is very little real difference in the
price of milk in Florida and many north-
ern areas when the butterfat content and
quality of the milk is taken into account.
Jacksonville and Miami each has a base
price of 260 per quart for creamline Pas-
teurized Grade A Milk. Miami is listed
in this magazine, page 136, but Jackson-
ville is not. Miami shows the 26 price
for 4% to 4.4% butterfat milk just
about the way of Jacksonville.
Other markets are listed as having a
price of 24 and 250 per quart for 4%
milk. This means that the milk is stan-
dardized to 4%. It is unlawful in Jackson-
ville to standardize milk. Therefore, you
can find milk on this market all the way
up to 5% butterfat. Mobile shows 25
per quart price at straight 4% butterfat
milk. Denver, Colorado is 230 for 3.6%
milk. Hartford, Conn. 240 for 3.7 to 3.8
milk. Atlanta, Ga., is 250 with no butter-
fat standard shown. New Orleans, 25
for 3.8 milk. Augusta and Portland,
Maine, 240 for straight 4% milk -
that's for milk in paper and a penny less
in glass. Atlantic City, N. J., 25.50 per
quart for 3.6 milk. Miami and Jackson-
ville have much the better buy in my
opinion for 4% plus at 260. Durham,
N. C., is 250 for 4% milk. Oklahoma
City 25.50, butterfat not shown. Char-
leston, W. Va., 24.50 for 3.5 to 3.8 but-
terfat. As I see it, we have a better buy
in Florida at 260 for 4% butterfat with
plus-Grade-A Pasteurized Milk than many
of these other areas.
Where Florida prices are 10 to 1.5
higher per quart, there is no benefit to
the dairy because of the extra for trans-
portation costs on feeds.
I think the Dairy Industry should go
all out to show the buying public facts
of this kind as well as what they are get-
ting for their money in the fine milk sup-
ply that is produced in Florida.
Very sincerely yours,
VAL A. LEE

DE LAVAL COMBINE MILKER
Mr. Isaac Shakarian and his son, Mr. Demos Shakarian, owners
and operators of the Reliance Dairy Farm at Downey, Calif., use
the De Laval Model F Combine Milking System to milk their
1,000-cow herd. We'll let their letter speak for itself:
"I have always believed in giving credit where credit is due-
and your company certainly deserves credit for saving me a lot of
time and money with the new De Laval Model F Combine
"We are saving labor since switching to De Laval. This is a
substantial item in itself; but coupled with this is the satisfaction
of a more efficient, modern operation.
"We operate a 1,000-cow dairy and efficiency is important.
Thanks to a fine job of installation by your dealer, Brown Brothers
of Bellflower, we are now able to machine-milk 120 head of cows
that previously had to be milked by hand, thus our operators are
now freed of drudgery chores and can handle 75 cows each with ease.
"Our veterinary bill has shown a big reduction, and the sanitary
problem is greatly simplified due to the new circulating washup
system incorporated in the De Laval installation."
The De Laval Model F Combine Milking System can save time
and money for you, too. Why not send for full information today?

is 14 years old, is in high production, and
her calves have included three bulls which
were sold for a total of $14,000. One of
the bulls was bought by an American
farmer for more than $4,000. Keeper's
Dreaming Design has five annual records
running to 14,000 pounds of milk and
more than 700 pounds of butterfat a year.
"We also saw beautiful specimens of
Guernsey cattle on the Island of Guern-
sey. On Guernsey we learned that the
government has adopted a system of com-
pulsory production recording, but it has
not been placed in general operation yet.
"Strictly controlled grazing is practiced
on Jersey and Guernsey, and cows are
tethered or staked out on long chains in
pasture. Much time is required for mov-
ing the cows and taking them to water,
but the close attention given to dairy ani-
mals on the Channel Islands has resulted
in the development of the great breeds
for which they are famous.
"Unfortunately, we did not see much
of the dairy cattle in England because
farm visits were restricted as a measure
in the campaign to wipe out Foot and
Mouth Disease. Dairy Shorthorns and
British Friesians are the main breeds used
in England for milk production.
"We were the guests of the British
Ministry of Agriculture and the Nation-
al Federation of Young Farmers' Clubs at
the British Royal Agricultural Show and
in London. A number of enjoyable events
were planned for us including a trip up
the Thames River from London with
members of the American Embassy and
a banquet at Hampton Court Hotel.
"Incidentally, England is making stren-
uous efforts to increase production of
more food and more forage for its live-
"The European breeds have a 'grading
up' plan whereby grade cows meeting
type and production requirements may
be entered in an Auxiliary Register and
within three to five generations secure
full registration with the cattle breed as-
"From England we went to Holland
and the Friesland province, where our
American Holstein-Friesians were deve-
loped. It is in Northwestern Holland and
is rated as the best dairy region in the
world. The climate is ideal for dairy
farming, monthly average temperatures
ranging from 65 degrees in summer down
to 35 in winter. On the natural pasture
land of clay and peat the Dutch farmer
grazes his cattle from May to October
and milks them right in the pasture.

the fields about every 200 feet, cutting
the farms into small pastures of from
three to seven acres each, and the farmer
rotates his cows from one field to an-
other. The production of the Friesian cat-
tle on grass and water only is outstand-
ing. The Dutch farmer feeds his cows
hay and grass silage and a very small
amount of concentrates during the six
months they are in the barn. The govern-
ment rations concentrates at 375 pounds
per cow per year, but the cows average
about 1,000 gallons of milk a year.
"Like Jersey and Guernsey, Holland
was occupied by the Germans during
World War II, but the Germans did not
kill large numbers of cattle in any of
those places. They recognized the value
of the purebred Jerseys, Guernseys and
Dutch Friesians for milk, and only the
males and cows of least milk production
value were slaughtered.
"In Germany we saw dairy cattle simi-
lar to those of Holland. On the whole,
German lands are well-farmed and good
dairy farming practices are in use. Steep
mountainsides are used for grape produc-
"Most French dairy herds are of no
particular type and are characterized by
mixed breeding -facts which account to
a large extent for the comparatively low
average production in France.
"On our trip, as has been pointed out,
we saw many interesting things and talk-
ed with many farmers and others. Part
of the time we had the services of inter-
preters in talking with farmers and other
people. The farmers and others whom we
saw were pleasant and friendly, the farms
and landscapes were generally attractive
and picturesque, and the experiences we
had were interesting, entertaining, and
educational. We took pictures, as most
American visitors do. We saw many fam-
ous places, such as Blarney Castle in Ire-
land, Tam-O-Shanter Inn and Robert
Burns' birthplace near Ayr, Scotland, and
Shakespeare's birthplace at Stratford on
the Avon River. In London we went
through the House of Parliament and saw
the fabulous Crown Jewels in the Tower
of London. We saw Queen Elizabeth II
at the British Royal Show and took her
picture. We were not quite close enough,
however, for Albert Lawton to make
good on his promise to kiss the Queen.
We attended church one Sunday in West-
minster Abbey. We took a boat ride
through the canals of Amsterdam and
the boat trip up the Rhine River from
Kologne to Mainz, Germany, ending up
in Paris, where we visited the Louvre
Museum, Versailles Palace, Notre Dame
and other historical places.
"It was a great experience, and all of
us are grateful to those who made it pos-
sible: The Florida Dairy Industry Associa-
tion, the State Department of Agriculture,
the Florida Jersey and Guernsey Cattle
Clubs, dairy producer's organizations,
milk plants, feed and dairy supply men,
many individual dairymen and others."
There is no ruling class in America,
but the people who vote have within their
power the ability to decide what kind of
government we shall have. Won't you
be one of them?

MILK IN THE FAMILY DIETS
Milk has a unique place in present-day diets. Not only
is milk in its several forms the chief supplier of calcium,
furnishing three-fourths of the total of our national dietary,
but it accounts for nearly half the riboflavin, one-fourth the
protein, and important amounts of several other nutrients.
Small wonder then that educational efforts to improve diets
have put great emphasis on milk.
Practically every study of what people eat-whether it
concerns family diets, or food habits of school children or
other individuals-gives the same picture. In every group
there are substantial numbers of people using too little milk.
Milk is by far the most economical source of calcium
in diets, and offers good returns for the money in many other
nutrients, too. The low cost food plan of Bureau of Human
Nutrition and Home Economics suggests close to six quarts a
week for children of different ages; five quarts for adults,
with extra allowances in pregnancy and lactation. Liberal
quantities like these provide best assurance that diets will
have enough calcium; they will go far toward meeting needs
for riboflavin and high quality protein.
Much remains to be done to bring up milk consumption
where it is too low. Faced with high food prices, consumers
need to know more about uses and nutritional values of
various forms of milk and milk products. They need, above
all, to be convinced of the nutritional importance of milk, not
only for children but for grown-ups as well. This is a chal-
lenge that teachers, nutritionists, and health workers would
do well to accept.

WELFARE MILK REQUESTS
"ON THE FUNNY SIDE"
These are some extracts from letters making application
for supplies of Welfare Milk in the Glasgow, Scotland area:
"Please send me some cheap milk as I am expecting
"I have a baby twelve months old, thanking you for
same. Please send the form for supply of milk for having
babies at reduced rates."
'I have a child two months old fed entirely on cows
and another child."
"Will you please send me a form for cheap milk. I
have a baby two months old. I didn't know anything about
it until a friend told me."
"Sorry I have been so long in filling in form, but I have
been in bed with my baby and didn't know it was running
out until the milkman told me."
"This is my eighth child, what are you going to do
"Sir, I am forwarding my Marriage Certificate and two
children one of which has been a mistake, as you can see."
-From "The Milk Industry," London, England
Retail prices of regular milk delivered to homes in 25
major cities in the country averaged 23 cents per quart early
in July. This average was 1.1 cents higher than for July of
last year. Milk dealers' average buying price in more than
100 cities early in July averaged $5.34 per cwt., or 29 cents
higher than in July of a year ago.
In most Florida areas there has been no milk price in-
creases within the past year.

GUERNSEY GROUP MAKE
INTERESTING CUBAN TOUR
By V. C. Johnson
Pres. Dinsmore Dairy, Jacksonville
(Pictures on page 14)
The Florida Dairy News has requested that I submit an article reporting a spe-
cial tour to Cuba made some time ago by a group of Florida Guernsey breeders and 1
am happy to tell our friends of some of the features of the tour which appeared to us
to be of special interest.
The tour was sponsored by the Florida Guernsey Cattle Club for the purpose of
becoming better acquainted with the dairy industry in Cuba and with some of the
well known dairy cattle breeders of our close neighbor country to the South of us,
to whom Florida purebred animals have been sold from time to time.
The removal of milkstone from
pasteurizers (especially H. T. S. T.
plate type), need no longer be a
time-consuming task. Now you can

Acting as our gracious hosts were Dr.
and Mrs. Roberto Parajon of Havana,
prominent Guernsey breeders and both
of whom are practicing veterinarians.
They had been guests in Florida last year
of Florida Guernsey Breeders and were
guest speakers at the 1951 annual meeting
of the Florida Veterinary Medical Asso-
Assisting Dr. and Mrs. Parajon in
various arrangements for our party was
our good friend Mr. O. L. Menendez,
Cuban representative of the Standard
One of the most interesting of the
various places we visited was the Cuban
National Live Stock Exposition at Ha-
vana. Here we had an opportunity to see
many fine animals of some of our own
country's prominent dairy breeds. Among
these were Guernseys, Jerseys, Brown
Swiss and Ayrshires.
Dr. Parajon, who is one of the spon-
sors of the Exposition, had on exhibit a
number of fine Guernseys, one of which
was judged the Grand Champion. Beef
animals and horses were also prominent
in the livestock exhibits.
Our party were guests for dinner at
the Parajon home on their 400 acre
Guernsey Farm where we had an op-
portunity to inspect their herd of 63
registered Guernseys, some of which had
been purchased from prominent Florida
breeders. We were impressed by the Cu-
ban names seen around their dairy barns.
For instance, the calf barn was labeled
"Zona Infantil" and the maternity barn
sign read (if you could read it) "Mater-
Much American machinery was seen
both at the Exposition and at the farms
and dairy plants.
One large dairy farm visited furnished
quite a surprise to our party with their
modern 122 cow milking barn.
One of the interesting facts about dairy
farming in Cuba is their development of
a native dual purpose dairy animal, slight-
ly smaller than the average American
dairy cow and of a dark red color. These
cows are said to be good average milk
producers and superior to other dairy
animals for beef.
Another interesting item seen on Cu-
ban farms was their live fence posts which
take root and grow after they are cut
from trees and set out.
Our tour took us by bus more than
half the length of the island, some 343
miles as far as Camaguey which is one of
the country's best dairy areas. Here we
visited a large modern factory which man-
ufactures butter, cheese and dried milk.
In peak season the factory uses 135,000
gallons of milk per day. We also visited
near Camaguey one of Cuba's largest
A visit to an old American Colony
on the gulf beaches north of Camaguey
proved to be most interesting to our party
as we learned that an original colony
numbering three or four thousand Ameri-
cans was today reduced to only a few
Cuba has much of the very modern-
particularly in Havana and other cities.
However, there remains over much of the
country much of what we term the life
of the pioneer days in America.
The production, processing and de-
livery of milk in Havana compare favor-
ably with American cities. However, in
the smaller towns, delivery seemed to be
done entirely with small two-wheel, one-

who have not had the pleasure of going.
