Our Evaluation of the Florida Milk Commission
SAVES CONSUMERS MILLIONS
Around State Leqislature time every two years, the arm-chair generals of certain
Florida Newspapers and a few politicians declare open season on the Florida Milk
Commission. In dairy terms we might call it a "field day."
We think it is time the Milk Commission be recognized and commended for the
good it has done during the past twenty years for Florida milk consumers, for the
dairy industry of the State of Florida and for the economic development of the state
What has the Milk Commission done for the consumer? It has stabilized the
price of milk and constantly kept it at a minimum consistent with the economic condi-
tions of the Florida dairy farmers.
The DAIRY NEWS quoted on the front cover of the last issue information derived
from the Milk Industry Foundation of Washington, D. C. indicating that the price of
milk in Florida has increased about 50% less since the beginning of the war in 1941
than it has increased throughout the nation as a whole.
If the price of milk in Florida had increased as much for the country as a whole,
Florida consumers would today be paying around 40c a quart for their milk supply.
We attribute much of the credit for this favorable position of Florida milk prices
to the Florida Milk Commission. It has on numerous occasions denied the pleas of
Florida dairymen for price increases.
BENEFITS PRODUCERS OF MILK
Florida dairymen under the stabilizing influence of the Milk Commission have
been able to operate with much greater economy than would have been possible
under constantly changing prices and conditions.
We note that a report of the U. S. Department of Agriculture Bureau of Aqricul-
tural Economics about February 1 shows a most favorable position which the price of
milk holds as compared to the price increases of other foods. This report indicates
that if the price of milk had increased as much as coffee, the price of milk today
would be about 90c a quart. As compared to sugar increases, milk would be 38c a
quart; with flour, 48c a quart; with pork, 49c a quart; with bananas, 54c a quart;
with salmon, 60c a quart; and with steaks, 50c a quart.
FLORIDA MILK IS SUPERIOR
While holding this favorable price position outlined above, Florida's home milk
supply is recognized as superior in quality to most of the fluid milk supply of the
nation. This is true because of the higher standards of sanitation and butterfat content
of Florida produced milk, which are enforced jointly by the Florida Milk Commission,
the dairy inspection division of the State Department of Agriculture, the State Board
of Health, and the various local Health Departments.
A prominent Miami dairyman told the House and Senate Health Committees of
the Florida Legislature a few days ago that he seriously doubted that the State of
Michigan's largest milk producing county which was his home county, had a single
dairy which could pass the rigid sanitary and animal health requirements of Dade
Florida is one of the few, if not the only state in the nation which prohibits the
sale of fluid milk of any grade less than "Grade-A."
The Florida Milk Commission held 54 meetings during the year 1952 in its efforts
to serve the public interest by insuring "a constant supply of pure, wholesome milk"
to Florida consumers, as it is charged to do under the Law.
If Florida milk prices had been allowed to increase since 1941 by the same
percentage as other major foods, or as much as the average incresae of the price of
milk for the nation as a whole, the Flroida housewife's bill would have been several
million dollars more than it has been.
We hold, just as every session of the Legislature since 1933 has held, that
the Florida Milk Commission is essential and necessary to the public health and public
welfare of our state.

For Our Youth Readers
Second of a Series of Articles on:
A Career in The Dairy Industry
Note: In the first of this series of articles on "A Career in the Dairy Indlutr,"
a general survey of the scope of the dairy industry preceded an outline of the various
opportunities which young people may find in this field of work. In this article will
begin a more specific consideration of some of the jobs which await you if you wish
a career in the dairy industry.
NEED FOR TRAINING
The opportunities for workers in the
dairy industry are, as in all other indus-
tries, greater for the trained than for the
untrained. Though many leaders in the
industry today have come up the hard
way and succeeded through hard work
and practical experience, training may be
had in every phase of dairying and its
allied occupations. There is little need
for a farmer now to proceed by the old
method of trial and error. Courses in
production, manufacture, distribution and
sale of milk and its products are offered
in both technical schools and state uni-
versities. Many schools, including our
own University of Florida, operate com-
plete dairy farms and dairy plants where
practical experience with the most mod-
ern equipment is to be obtained along
with technical instruction.
Almost every element of a general
education through the college level may
be applied to a career related directly or
indirectly to dairy farming. Also, the
highest technical skills are required in
many phases of handling animals, caring
for milk, manufacturing the many milk
products, managing farms as well as
plants, transporting and selling the
products, and working in the infinite
number of allied fields such as equip-
ment and prepared feed. Don't overlook,
also, the broad area occupied by the vital
ocupations of inspection, supervision of
animal health, control of disease and
farm pests for both plants and animals.
The basic level of dairying and the
entire industry built up around dairying
lies in the work of the DAIRY FARM-
ER. Animal agriculture is the backbone
of the American standard of living and
is our best guarantee for continued pros-
perity and stability. Animal agriculture
builds and conserves the soil, provides
our best food reserve, furnishes the foods
that we need most and like best, and
provides a livelihood for millions of our
people. The dairy cow is the major con-
tributor to an animal agriculture. The
cash value of the produce of the dairy
farm exceeds the value of the produce
of any other type of farming.
The dairy farmer, who breeds, feeds,
and cares for the dairy cow needs to be
recognized for the important part he
plays in this industry. It must be real-
ized, also, that the dairy farmer must
be alert and well trained in order to be
an efficient and successful business man.
The well-trained dairy farmer will under-
stand many phases of agriculture ranging
from pasture cultivation and feed produc-
tion to farm and dairy buildings and
their maintenance. Specialists in some
phases of the operation of the dairy farm
are examples of other opportunities for
the young man today, because these spec-
ialists carry to the farmer specific im-
provements of methods as soon as they
are developed. The farm and its opera-
tion, however, remain the basic founda-
tion upon which the industry is built.
IMPORTANCE IN NATION'S
More than half of the gainfully em-
ployed in this country are engaged, di-
rectly or indirectly, in the production,
processing and handling of food. In the
dairy industry alone, it is estimated that
at least 11/2 million persons are directly
employed in the production, processing
and distribution of milk and dairy
products. Should the dairy farm, its herds
and its products, disappear from our
economy as an industry, labor and in-
dustry alike would feel the effects a long
time before it would be felt by the farm-
er, because they would lose both their
jobs and their good meals.
The stability of the economic status
of the dairy farmer has been recognized
in nationwide surveys. He has been able
to pay his bills when others have found
it difficult to do so. Thus he contributes
to a more prosperous business in his
community. More dairy farms and more
good dairy herds are needed. They will
contribute to better land and better men
and the greater prosperity of the nation.
Dairying In Florida Continues To Grow
John M. Scott, Chief Dairy Supervisor
Florida State Department of Agriculture
What is the value of the dairy industry to the state? At the present prices,
the cash value of the 90 million gallons of milk produced annually is about 50
million dollars. The retail sale value then is approximately 85 million dollars. To
this can be added several million dollars received by dairy farmers for calves, other
dairy animals, and dairy fertilizer sold annually. The monthly payroll of some 1250
dairymen and dairy processing plants is another important item in the economy of
the state. Total employment in the Florida dairy industry is estimated to be between
25,000 and 30,000 persons.
More important than these, however,
is the fact that the Florida Dairy In-
dustry now produces practically 100 per
cent of the fluid milk consumed in Flor-
ida and of a quality recognized as among
the best in the country.
To consider the history of our growth,
in 1920 there were about 70,000 dairy
cows in Florida and they produced about
12 million gallons of milk. In 1930,
there were about 75,000 dairy cows with
a production of 20 million gallons. In
1940, there were about 110,000 dairy
cows and the production of milk that
year was 50 million gallons. In 1950,
there were about 155,000 dairy cows with
a production of 80,433,136 gallons. In
1952, the number of dairy cows had in-
creased to approximately 168,000 cows
with a production of 90 million more
During 1952, the following new con-
struction has taken place over the State-
88 dairy barns, 63 milk rooms, 55 wash
rooms, and 13 pasteurizing plants were
built. During the same time, the follow-
ing were enlarged or remodeled: 16 dairy
barns, 10 milk rooms, 8 wash rooms, and
8 pasteurizing plants.
Other improvements or additions to
the dairies in the last year or two were '68
pipe line milkers, 89 tank trucks for
hauling milk from the farm to the milk
plant in town, and 24 holding tanks.
In addition, a lot of other new equip-
ment was installed in the dairies and
Another increase that has taken place
is the number of heifer calves that have
been retained and raised as replacements
in the dairy herds all over the State.
The raising of replacements in the dairy
herds during the past three or four years
has been due to the organization of 16
Artificial Breeding Associations. This
means that this year about 7,000 Florida-
raised heifers were added to the dairy
herds in the State. In 1955, there will
be an addition of another 8,000 to 10,000
Florida-raised heifers. As a rule, these
home-raised heifers make better produc-
ing cows and stay in the herd for a
longer period of time. They may cost a
little more than cows purchased from
some other State, but in the end, they
are more profitable to the owner.

New Research gives greater emphasis
to the value of milk as a mainstay in the
diet of nutrition-conscious America.
Larger food budgets would be needed
in the average home if the vitamins, min-
erals and calories supplied by milk had
to be secured from other sources.
Fresh milk is low in price compared
to the average cost of all foods in the
family market basket. This record has
been maintained despite the fact that milk
company wages, operating expenses and
prices of the raw product have been at
Milk in this country today is the best
in the world. Our system of efficient
low-cost distribution, sanitation, pasteuri-
zation and supply create a standard which
dairymen from throughout the world
come here to study. The United States to-
day is the greatest dairy nation.
Nearly half of the Nation's milk is
used for drinking and cooking. The
other half is used for butter, cheese, ice
cream and a myriad of products ranging
from powdered milk to pharmaceuticals.
The value of this annual output is esti-
mated at 8 billion dollars.
Milk was more than 14 per cent of
1949 farm cash income excluding gov-
ernment payments; larger than hogs; al-
most twice wheat; nearly one and a half
time poultry and eggs; more than one
and one-half time cotton; four times to-
bacco. Milk for only the fourth time in
decades, was not the largest single source
of farm cash income being exceeded in
1949 only by cattle and calves.
Nearly 23 million cows on three-quar-
ters of the Nation's 5,859,000 farms pro-
duce the "billion quart yearly supply.
Milk production per cow, averaged nearly
2500 quarts a year, is at an all-time high
Our most widely used food, milk com-
prises more than 25 per cent of the foods

than 13 per cent greater than before the

Dairy Industry Unites On Program
For Milk Commission Law Changes
BILL NOW AWAITING HOUSE AND SENATE VOTE
After months of consideration by special committees and several recent confer-
ences between producer and distributor members of the Florida Dairy Industry and
careful study with attorneys, agreement was reached in a final legislative committee
conference in Tallahasse on proposed amendments to the Florida Milk Commission
These amendments have been introduced in the Legislature as House Bill No.
908 and Senate Bill No. 636. A public hearing on both the Senate and House
Bills was held in the Senate Chamber of the State Capitol Building, Wednesday,
April 29th before a joint meeting of the House and Senate Committees on Public
Health. More than 100 dairy leaders from throughout the state attended the hearing
which also attracted the Senate galleries full of spectators.

The Florida State Capitol Building is a
familiar place to many of the members of the
Florida Dairy Association who find it neces-
sary to go back and forth at each session of
the Legislature to furnish information about
the dairy industry and how proposed legisla-
tion would affect it
These spokesmen had the difficult job
of presenting to the combined Public
Health Committees both the merits of
the Bill as sponsored by the dairy indus-
try and the objections of the dairy in-
dustry to the Senator Branch Bill (Senate
Bill No. 732) which proposed a Milk
Commission of only five members and its
operation only in areas designated by the
State Board of Health; and to House
Bill No. 150, by the five Republican
members to "repeal all pricing powers
of the Milk Commission."
INDUSTRY BILL IS APPROVED
The above bills opposed by the dairy
industry have both received unfavorable
committee reports, while the bill offered
by the dairy industry has been approved
by both the House and Senate Commit-
Governor McLarty and the Bill has his
Other changes include dropping from
the Commission, the Producer-Distributor
member and the Administrator, leaving
a six-member Commission with two con-
sumers, two dairy members-a dairy far-
mer and a milk distributor-the Com-
missioner of Agriculture or his represen-
tative and the State Board of Health Of-
ficer or his representative.
Other major changes include: (1) A
tax on the Dairy Farmer for the Admin-
istrative Fund, in the same amount as
now paid by the milk distributors. (1/10
cent per gallon on Class 1 milk sold).
(2) A voluntary plan for the coopera-
tion between dairies in transferring milk
not needed for Class 1 purposes to other
plants and areas where the supply of
Class 1 Milk is short.
Under the amended law which would
be effective July 1st, it is contemplated
that deputy administrators will be estab-
lished in each principal milk area to keep
a closer and up-to-date summary of in-
formation regarding both dairy farm and
plant production and operating costs.
It is also an objective of the industry
to urge the Milk Commission to proceed
immediately with the consideration of im-
proved procedures in the securing of
current accurate dairy operating costs and
in proving the price formula used in ar-
riving at a reasonable minimum farm and
retail milk price.

than a year for an Annual State-wide Dairy Pasture Contest.
The contest will be held under the joint sponsorship of the Florida Dairy
Association and the University Extension Service with Extension Dairyman C. W.
Reeves acting as director of the contest. A number of pasture specialists of the
Agricultural Experiment station and county farm agents generally will assist in
enlisting participation of the dairymen in the program and in assisting dairymen
with their pasture improvement projects.
The objective of the contest is the development of a better pasture and forage
program on all dairy farms in order to obtain more efficient milk production and
more profitable dairying.
PLAN OF CONTEST FOR 1953
Interested dairy farmers will fill out
enrollment cards and keep specified data
on pasture crops and their utilization.
Certificates will be issued to each herd
owner submitting a report and making
creditable record of pasture production,
scoring at least 75 per cent on the score
County and state winners will be se-
lected in two divisions:
1. On the basis of the top pasture and
2. On the basis of the most progress
over the previous year in providing
pacture and forage to meet the
needs of the herd, on a per cow
The County Dairy Pasture Committee
will inspect the pastures and submit re-
ports on the top county winner in each
division and the names of all those quali-
fying for recognition.
County Dairy Pasture Committees shall
consist of the county agent or his repre-
sentative, a dairyman named by the Flor-
ida Dairy Association, and as many oth-
ers as these two shall select in each coun-
ty. If a dairyman on the committee is a
contestant, substitute judges shall be se-
A State Judging Committee shall select
the State Winners from the reports sub-
mitted on the county winners. (An ef-
fort at actual visits by the State Com-
mittee will only be made where the best
records are close and where practical for
the Committee to make trips.)
The State Judging Committee shall
consist of the FDA Dairy Pasture Com-
mittee Chairman, the State Extension
Dairyman, State Extension Agronomist,
State Farm Management Specialist, and
one other named by the FDA president.
The program will be announced in the
Florida Dairy News and by letters from
the Extension Service to the county
agents. The Dairy News will carry an
enrollment blank and the plan of the

/ Proper Control of Cream Layer
Formation On Milk
DR. H. H. WILKOWSKE
Assistant Dairy Technologist
Florida Agricultural Experiment Slatlio,
Large quantities of non-homogenized milk are marketed in Florida in glass
bottles with a visible cream layer. It is of commercial importance to avoid any
practice which might reduce the volume of the cream layer
since a deep cream layer is desired for eye appeal of the
S consumer. The normal cream volume formed on fresh, raw
S milk in 24 hours is approximately 4.1 times the percent fat
or about 15% to 20%o of the total volume.
In Florida the Island breeds of dairy cattle are the most
.., numerous. It has been noted that milk from Jersey and Guernsey
S cattle will produce deeper cream-lines than milk from other
breeds of dairy cattle. Careful studies have clearly shown that
& there is no advantage of one breed over the other in respect to
DR. WILKOWSKI creaming ability of the milk providing the amount of butterfat
present is taken into account. When corrected for differences
in butterfat content the milk from the various dairy cattle breeds are of equal
creaming ability providing proper processing precautions are observed.
It is well known that the actual num-
ber of fat globules is about the same for
all breeds of dairy cattle. The higher fat
test of Jersey and Guernsey milk is al-
most entirely due to the fact that the in-
dividual fat globules are somewhat larger.
Florida produced milk also is generally
a softer fat due to feeding oil products
higher in oleic acides and greater use of
green pasture feeding. These larger and
softer fat globules must be processed
carefully to avoid possible fat globule in-
jury which might result in a shorter ap-
pearing cream layer in the bottled milk.
Observations and calculations have
shown that about one week would be
required for an individual fat globule to
rise from the bottom to the top of a
quart of milk. Yet we know that a deep
cream layer actually forms within a few
hours under favorable conditions. This
is due to the joining of individual fat
globules into clusters which have a great-
er buoyancy and will rise more rapidly
in milk than individual fat globules.
These fat globule clusters must not be
disrupted by mechanical injury in pro-
cessing milk. Also, partial churning must
be avoided in which several clusters are
further joined together into larger clumps
of coalesced butter granules. These larger
butter granules have a strong tendency to
float and actually rise too fast with too
much force which results in a shorter
The agitation of milk is one of the
most important factors to consider since
excessive agitation is known to be the
cause of shortened cream layers. Much
damage may be done to cream layer for-
mation in milk by improper use of
pumps, primarily by rotary pumps rather
than positive displacement pumps. Milk
pumps should be selected which are of
the correct capacity. When the capacity
of the pump is too great, and a valve
is used to reduce the flow of milk, the
valve should be placed in the pipe line
on the discharge side of the pump and
the flow of product regulated by adjust-
ing this valve. In no case should the ad-
justing valve be located on the suction
side of the pump because this may
starve the pump of milk causing severe
agitation and partial churning of the
The best results are obtained with a
minimum of agitation due to pumping
when arranged with automatic level con-
trols to permit milk pumps to pump at
full capacity or stop completely. When
float valve controls are used completely
satisfactory results are not always ob-
tained. If the milk flow is decreased or
cut off and the pump is still running, the
milk is being subjected to a danger of
The temperature of the milk at the
time of pumping is related to churning
of butterfat. The fat in milk is churned
much more rapidly when it is in a semi-
solid state than when in either a solid
or melted state. Between 50 and 60 de-

merly a legal secretary in Miami, decided

agrees F. maximum churning will result.
Low temperatures decrease the tendency
for milk to churn. To prevent churning
the temperature should be kept either be-
low 40 degrees F. or well above the melt-
ing point of fat during the pumping pro-
cess. The melting point of butterfat varies
considerably throughout the year due to
variations in feed of the cow.
On the farm it is reasonably safe to
pump warm milk just obtained from the
cow since the butterfat globules will be
in a liquid condition. Between 100 and
125 degrees F. the most damage to cream
line formation will occur if the milk has
been previously cooled. Cold milk that
has just been warmed to 125 degrees F.
should theoretically contain fat in a
liquid state, but actually the fat is only
partially liquefied. To make certain that
the fat is in a melted condition at the
time of pumping a temperature of at
least 130 degrees F. should be main-
tained during the pumping process. Tem-
peratures slightly below pasteurization
are satisfactory for pumping.
It is a common practice to pump milk
from the receiving room at temperatures
around 40 degrees F. with very little
damage to cream layer formation. When

THE ELECTRIC FENCE
GAINS IN POPULARITY
JAMES M. WING
University of Florida Experiment Station
The use of electricity for control of
livestock is not a new procedure, but
many improvements have been made since
commercial electric fencing supplies ap-
peared on the market some twenty years
The growing popularity of the electric
fence in conjunction with dairy opera-
tions may be attributed largely to the
desirability of rotational grazing of im-
proved pastures, and to the adaptability
and inexpensive nature of present-day
electric-fencing supplies. Thus, the
charged wire offers an inexpensive way
for dairymen to follow the recommended
system of intensive grazing on small
It has been observed that dairy bulls
can obtain most of their feed, as well as
the proper amount of exercise, by grazing
individual improved-pasture plots of
about one acre. Since conventional wire
fences cannot be expected to hold such
animals, and the cost of heavy timber
usually is prohibitive, an electric fence,
placed inside a woven wire fence, seems
to be a feasible answer to the bull-pas-
ture fencing problem.
The electric fence is charged by a fence
controller, of which there are various
types. When electric service is available,
usually the high-line controller which
operates from an ordinary A. C. outlet is
employed because of the convenience it
In places not reached by power lines,
or for small operations, a six-volt battery-
operated controller is recommended. An
ordinary "hot-shot" battery usually lasts
for about three months. If this type of
fencer is used, it is well to keep at least
one spare battery at all times.
Combination battery and highline fence
controllers also are availbale, but they do
not automatically change from A. C. to
battery operation in event of current fail-
ure. If this precautionary measure is de-
sired, a conventional battery-operated
fencer may be connected through a nor-
mally-closed relay which is activated when
the A. C. source is dead and automati-

The State DHIA Herds averaged 51 per cent more milk and 58 per cent more
butter fat per cow than the average Florida milk cow. The dairymen use the records
as a guide in the feeding and management of their herds, thus assisting in the de-
velopment of higher producing and more efficient dairy herds in the state. The

Technical information on the principles
and methods of its operation should be
sought and understood by anyone wishing
to install an electric fence. There are a
number of special considerations to be ob-
served when electric fences are used:
1. The maximum current which can
be tolerated by animals is limited. Inter-
rupted charging at intervals of about one-
tenth second prevents serious injury
caused by "freezing" to the fence. The
charging interval, current and voltage are
carefully regulated in reliable commercial
fencers, but a slight imbalance in amper-
age and voltage or an improper charging
interval may occur in home-made devices
with fatal results.
2. Many fence controllers are adjust-
able for higher voltage during dry
weather. This increases danger if read-
justment is not made in event of rain.
3. The electric fence will not stop an
infuriated bull. One or two encounters
are enough to teach most bulls respect
for electricity, but special precautions are
necessary for uninitiated animals. It is
not advisable to turn two or more un-
trained bulls into adjoining pens simul-
4. Current failure may allow stock to
escape unless special provisions are made.
5. Weeds can ground most electric
fences, and thus fence lines must be kept

DAIRY INDUSTRY LOSES
The Florida dairy industry lost one of
its most prominent leaders of the past
two decades in the passing of Sam H.
Solomon of Quincy on March 23rd. Sam,
as he was affectionately known through-
out Florida and by prominent dairymen
in most states of the union, passed away
at the age of 69 at the Gadsden County
Hospital in Quincy after a brief illness.
Though his health had not been good

was near until a
short time before.
He had been at the
hospital but four

to which he had
clung so determined-

MR. SOLOMON for several years,
there had been no in-
ton, Alabama, Mr. Solomon moved to
Quincy 32 years ago. He started a dairy
business which prospered through the
years and ice cream manufacturing later
played an important role in the progress
of the firm. His products were sold over
a wide area of west Florida.
Although he had disposed of his dairy
and ice cream plant some time ago he
continued milking a herd until May of
last year when he temporarily withdrew
from the dairy business and sold his
cows. Only two months before his death
he started anew in business to which he
had devoted so much of his life when he
began milking a herd of 50 cows in a
modern dairy which was recently con-
structed at his place two miles north-
west of Quincy and now stands as a
monument to his indominatable spirit.
Mr. Solomon was an active and tire-
less leader in all branches of the dairy
industry. He served as a director for
many years and for two terms as presi-
dent of the Florida Dairy Association.

The Sixth Annual State 4-H Dairy Show showed marked progress in number
and quality of cattle and in the ability of the 4-H Club members to care for, con-

counties representing all sections of the state converged on the Central Florida
Exposition, Orlando, for Dairy Show Day, Monday, February 23. The cattle were
brought in on Saturday and Sunday preceding the show. Many 4-H Club boys stayed
in the barracks made available by the Orlando Army Air Base the night before and
the night after the big show. There was competition in many dairy events with
enthusiastic club boys and girls parading their animals in the show and trying their
skill in the judging and other contests. Members of the State Agricultural Extension

300 Attend Jacksonville Rally
On Milk and Ice Cream Festival
One of the largest and best of ten regional dairy industry rallies held for the
purpose of planning in the 1953 Milk and Ice Cream Festival programs of the
dairy industry was held in Jacksonville, March 3rd in the Auditorium of the
George Washington Hotel.
Milk and ice cream company managers and sales managers attended from the
states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina.
The Jacksonville rally, covering four southeastern states, was sponsored by the
dairy industry's three National Associations representing milk producers, milk dis-
tributors and ice cream manufacturers and the State Associations of these states.
The purpose of the meeting was to ac-
quaint milk and ice cream managers and
sales managers, also related foods manu-
facturers and distributors, of this region
of the National Milk and Ice Cream sales
promotional campaign known as the Milk
and Ice Cream Festival Program.
National association spokesmen who at-
tended and addressed the meeting were
Richard J. Werner, Milk Industry
Foundation, Bob North, International As-
sc:iation of Ice Cream Manufacturers and
Don Coleman, American Dairy Associa-
.Ed Volkwein, Vice President of Fore-
most Dairies, was chairman of the Com-
mittee on arrangements and promotion.
Ed was well supported by several special
committees in making the rally the fine
success that it was. These were Andy
Lay, Publicity; Rex Smith, Related Foods;
Jack Dew, Door Prizes; Carl Caudill, Re-
freshments; Dee Widmeyer, Displays and
Jack Johnson, Attendance.
FESTIVAL PROGRAM OUTLINED
The three national organization speak-
ers outlined from the platform and then
demonstrated on the screen with sound-
slide projector equipment the details of
the national milk and ice cream sales
and promotional campaign which were
planned for the 1953 Festival.
The Festival Campaign is related with
the regular annual "June Dairy Month"
program, with the special emphasis on
"milk" sales covering the period May 15
to July 15 and the Ice Cream campaign
running during July, August and Sep-
The total promotional and advertising
budget for the 1953 Campaign was esti-
mated at about $1,500,000.00. This esti-
mate includes the dairy industry proper
and related foods groups. Milk and milk
products, and ice cream will be extensive-
ly advertised during the period of the
campaign in many of the country's lead-
DISPLAYS ARE COMPLIMENTED
The displays arranged for the Jackson-
ville rally by both the Jacksonville dairies
and the related foods distributors were
one of the important features of the meet-
ing and were highly praised by the na-
tional representatives present.
These displays were designed to dem-
onstrate to both the visiting dairy man-
agers and sales managers, as well as the
retail store managers present, the type of
display material which would be avail-
able and the recommended arrangements
The drawing of 30 door prizes and
serving of refreshments provided a very
pleasant ending for the day's program.
Both the prizes and refreshments were
provided by the Jacksonville dairies. The
two grand prizes, table model radios, were
won by Mrs. Julia Cobb, a dietician at
St. Vincent's Hospital and Frank Doub

FEATURES PEACH ICE CREAM
During the 1953 "Ice Cream Festival",

advantage of the publicity.

PENNOCK AND JOHNSON
WIN D. H. I. A. AWARDS
An average of 6,702 pounds of milk
given by 200 registered Jerseys testing
five percent or 332 pounds of butterfat
per cow was reported as the best butter
fat record of the year at the annual meet-
ing of the South Florida Dairy Herd
Improvement Association meeting held
recently in West Palm Beach. This re-
port was made on Pennock Plantation of

Palm Beach, had the highest average milk
production per cow of any herd in the
Officers elected by the group were:
John Tripson, Vero Beach, re-elected
president; George F. Johnson, vice-presi-
dent; John Causey, an assistant county
agricultural agent, secretary; and J. W.
Strickland, a Production Marketing Ad-
ministration official, treasurer.
The year-end summary of records of
individual herds and of the association
were made by C. W. Reaves, extension
dairyman, University of Florida. It shows
that the South Florida D.H.I.A., which
takes in the area from Vero Beach to Ft.
Lauderdale, averaged 6,215 pounds milk
testing 4.3 percent butterfat last year.
This is approximately 1,000 pounds more
milk than the average of all dairy cows
in the area, showing the results of herd
improvement practices of feeding accord-
ing to the individual needs of the cows,
culling low producing, unprofitable cows
and breeding for a still higher producing
herd in the future.
More than fifty dairymen of Pinellas
County met at the Largo Fair Grounds
recently and formed an organization,
electing Jack McMullen president. Other

NATIONAL JERSEY ORGANIZATION
CLASSIFIES FLORIDA HERDS
The official classification of six Flor-
ida Jersey herds was made during the
week of April 13 by Mr. Harold Ewalt,
Oregon Extension Dairyman and an Of-
ficial Classifier for the American Jersey
Cattle Club. Mr. Ewalt flew from Ore-
gon to Florida to classify the herds under
the auspices of the Florida Jersey Cattle
Club. Herds classified were the Univer-
sity of Florida Experiment Station, Clay
County Farms at Middleburg, Meadow-
brook Farm, Skinner Brothers, Walter
Welkener and W. J. Nolan of Jackson-
ville. These six herds had 163 cows for
initial classification and a total of 753 to
be inspected by the classification judge.
The judge assigns a type classification
on each animal of Excellent, Very Good,
Good Plus, Good, Fair, or Poor accord-
ing to its conformation. Registration
papers are cancelled on any animals class-
ified Poor. The Classification Program
is a part of the Breed Improvement Pro-
gram of the American Jersey Cattle Club.
It also sponsors a Production Testing
Program for recording the milk and but-
terfat yields of cows for use in herd in-
provement. Records are made under the
supervision of the Extension Dairyman of
the University of Florida.
Dairy Associations Formed
In Marianna and Mayo Areas
Local dairy associations were recently
formed in the Jackson-Washington Coun-
ty area and the Lafayette County area at
Mayo. Both groups have affiliated with
the Florida Dairy Association.
The Lafayette County group may have
made a record in making a 100% initial
membership report for every dairy in the

Completely mechanized milking... as provided by

type of dairy and offers wide flexibility in planning
The "Barn Type" Combine meets every require-
ment of the dairyman who prefers to milk his cows
in the stanchions... and does not want to build or
use a separate milking room.
The "Milking Room Type" Combine is the choice
of the dairy farmer who feels that a separate milk-
ing room best meets his needs.
Both types fully mechanize the milking operation
- milk...convey the milk... filter it...weigh indi-
vidual cow production, if desired...and automat-
ically discharge the milk into cans, farm tank or
over the aerator. And... both types provide mech-
anized "In-Place" cleaning by means of the De Laval
Vacuum Cleaning Method.

NEWS & VIEWS
MILLIONS SAVED CONSUMERS
BY PENN. MILK COMMISSION
It is refreshing in the midst of wide-
spread discussion, by the Florida press,
about the halls of the Florida Legislature,
and among Florida milk consumers, of
the pros and cons of the Florida Milk
Commission, to learn of the findings of
an official investigation made recently of
a similar State Milk Control Agency in
the State of Pennsylvania.
According to a report published in a
recent issue of the Pennsylvania Farm
Bureau official publication, the Pennsyl-
vania State Legislature provided for of-
ficial studies to be made of various State
Boards including the Pennsylvania Milk
Commission, an agency similar to the
Florida Milk Commission.
The sum of $130,000,000 estimated
as saved represented the amount which
consumers would have paid in higher
milk prices and the amount dairy farmers
would have lost in lower prices for the
milk they produced.
As stated in the editorial column of
this issue of the Dairy News, we believe
the fact that Florida milk prices have
been kept down during the period of
price increases (1940 to 1953) to the
extent that Florida milk prices have in-
creased approximately 50% less than for
the nation as a whole, should be proof
enough that the Florida Milk Commis-
sion has been saving Florida consumers
and Florida dairy farmers millions of
dollars a year.
1951 WARNING OF
While serving as president of Colum-
bia University in 1951, President Eisen-
hower issued a warning to the nation
against "dictatorship" and "centralized
government" which may well be re-read
and re-emphasized. The then general,
university president, and newly appointed
commander of European Defense was re-
ported to have declared that the kind of
dictatorship to which this nation may
succumb is not the kind that is brought
about by a sudden seizure of power with
the aid of the Army and the Navy. In-
stead, it is the kind "that can come about
through a creeping paralysis of thought
and readiness to accept paternalistic mea-
sures from the government."
"If we allow this constant drift to-
ward centralized bureaucratic government
to continue," he said, "it will finally be
expressed not only in the practice of lay-
ing down the rules and laws for govern-
ing each of us-our daily actions-to as-
sure that we do not take unfair advantage
of our comrades and other citizens, but
finally it will be in the actual field of
"There will be a swarming of bureau-
crats over the land. Ownership of prop-
erty will gradually drift into that central
government and finally you will have a
dictatorship as the only means of oper-
ating such a huge organization."
PUBLIC RELATIONS EXAMPLE
SET BY MIAMI DAIRIES
Wherever dairymen meet there is con-
versation about the need for more and
better "public relations." All agree that
more should be done to acquaint the
general public of the facts about the
dairy industry. Speakers at all dairy con-
ventions talk about it; editors write about
it; and even Governor Dan McCarty in
his last conference with the directors of
the Florida Dairy Association suggested,
as a bit of friendly advice, the impor-
tance of a better information program to
While a beginning has been made by
the F.D.A. Public Relations Committee
to plan and set in motion a program, only
a beginning has been made.
However, there is now a bright spot
in an otherwise hazy picture. The dairies
of the Miami Area have led out with a
shining example of one way to tell the
people about the dairy industry.
This enterprising group, comprising al-
most one-third of the total dairy industry
of Florida, carried seven pages of in-
formational and advertising copy in the
Miami Herald Sunday Edition on April
The material includes many dairy farm
and dairy plant pictures and excellent
information on the unusual and rapid
development of the industry in the Mi-
ami area to the point that it is compar-
able to the finest dairy sections of the
May this example encourage the dairies
of other areas to follow suit.
QUALITY OF FLORIDA MILK
"SECOND TO NONE IN COUNTRY"
Florida's Dairy industry has made giant
strides during the past decade, according
to C. W. Reaves, dairy specialist of the
University of Florida Agricultural Exten-
Mr. Reaves said: "In every phase of
the industry, tremendous progress has
been made since 1940, and dairy farmers
are continuing efforts to increase produc-
tion and improve the quality of their
products. Already the quality of theirs is
second to none in the country and, in
some respects, such as butter fat content,
is superior to that of most other states."

JERSEY CATTLE CLUB
PROPER CONTROL OF
CREAM LAYER FORMATION
(Continued from page 10)
milk is cooled rapidly down to 40 de-
grees F. with a surface or plate cooler
the fat globules do not immediately
solidify but remain in a semi-liquefied
form for several hours which encourages
churning. If the milk at the bottom of
the cooler is re-pumped within a few
minutes before the fat globules have a
chance to cluster the product will not be
visibly damaged. The best arrangement
of equipment permits a continuous flow
of milk over the cooler and into the filler
in one direct operation.
In addition to agitation other factors
also contribute to a decrease in the length
of the cream layer. Market the milk as
soon as possible because the longer the
milk is held in the refrigerator after
bottling the shorter the cream layer will
become. Avoid shaking of bottles after
filling and during storage and delivery,
since mixing of cream and milk in the
bottle after once having formed a cream
layer will result in a shorter cream layer
upon re-creaming a second time. Avoid
slight warming during delivery because
when again cooled the cream layer will
be shorter. Do not let part or all of the
milk freeze during cooling because this
has been found to rupture the individual
free butter fat globules which in turn are
no longer capable of forming the desired
cluster necessary for good cream layer'
formation. Overheating during pasteuri-
zation will result in shorter cream layer
formation and should be avoided by care-
ful temperature control. Proper pasteuri-
zation by either the holding or continuous
methods will not seriously affect the
depth of the cream layer. Avoid bottling
and storage temperatures above 40 de-
grees F. since the colder temperatures
favor deeper cream layers and a more
attractive product to the discriminating
