Fourth of a Series of Articles on:
A Career in The Dairy Industry
NOTE: The first three articles of this series have dealt with the scope of the dairy industry and
its relation to the economy of the nation; they have then proceeded into a consideration of
various occupations within the industry which offer opportunities for a fine career. Thus far,
the areas of work presented have been on or in contact with the dairy farm and its production
The diversity of opportunities con-
nected with the distribution of fluid milk,
the manufacture of milk products and
their sales, as well as with the regulatory
services and research fields is infinite.
Many types of work are a challenge to
all the ambition, intelligence, willingness
to work and ability to get along with
people which you can muster. Among
them you will find ample opportunity for
employment, interesting fields of work,
security, and a chance for advancement
depending only on your training and
Some plants make a policy of hiring
students during vacation periods in order
to locate future valuable employees. At
the same time the student may be making
the decision as to just which phase of
the complex business of the milk industry
interests him or her the most. Although
many leaders in the industry today may
have come up the hard way, in many
plants now, management consistently hires
only graduates of dairy departments of
technical schools and colleges for many
areas of their work, so preparation is ex-
tremely important. Because there are so
many kinds of work however, various
types of training are applicable.
Considering the jobs which continue
along with handling of milk we come to
the laboratory work done in most pro-
cessing and all manufacturing dairy pro-
ducts plants. This creates jobs for chem-
ists, bacteriologists and technicians.
Analyses are made of milk which is
processed and of ingredients used in mak-
ing all its various products including
cream, butter, condensed milk, cheese,
and ice cream. Fine opportunities are
found in the plant laboratory which works
closely with purchasing, procurement and
manufacturing of milk products. The
whole quality control program makes this
a challenging career.
Research workers in these laboratories
devise new methods and new products.
The ingenuity of an inventor is called
upon in this department of laboratory
Numerous jobs are provided by the
manufacturing processes which involve
assembling, pasteurizing, homogenizing,
cooling, and packaging of dairy products.
The operation of freezers and novelty-
making equipment calls for MECHANI-
CAL SKILL and exactness. All the de-
vices known to sanitary science must be
utilized, also, to protect the product so
that the consumer may receive it in the
very best condition. Inseparable from the
making of dairy products, therefore, is
the work of a SANITARY EXPERT.
SAFETY DIRECTORS must supervise
the operation of a large plant and this
may be your choice of a career.
ACCOUNTING AND OFFICE
Dairy and ice cream plants require
BOOKKEEPERS, RECORD CLERKS,
CREDIT MANAGERS and COST AC-
COUNTANTS. Graduates of business
colleges are needed and your career with
the dairy industry may be on the basis
of business practices.
If you attend college and specialize in
dairy manufacture, include some business
courses and if you specialize in business
management don't overlook the dairy
manufacturing field when you enter the
MILK MADE THE DIFFERENCE

made during the convention are the Agri-
cultural Leadership Awards, which are
made each year to the most outstanding
students of dairy manufacturing from col-
leges throughout North America.
A special Awards Dinner will be held
under the auspices of the American Dairy
Science Association and the Dairy Indus-
tries Supply Association on Tuesday, Oc-
tober 27th at seven p.m. in the Bradford
Hotel. Guests at the dinner will be sen-
ior students from leading agricultural col-
leges who comprise the judging teams
on butter, cheese, ice cream, and milk.
Individual winners and winning teams in
Monday's contest will be announced at
the dinner. The Milk Industry Founda-
tion will, as in the past, present the Milk
Cup and the Milk Medals for profic-
iency in judging.

attendance although there will not be as
large a group as when the Dairy Equip-
ment and Supplies Exhibition is held
with the convention.
SOUTH NEEDS MORE DAIRIES
"The Milk Industry Foundation has
just issued some "Milk Facts" which the
South would do well to ponder," says
an editorial in the Orlando Sentinel.
"As great as have been the strides
made in the South in recent years in di-
versified agriculture, in emphasizing the
South's agricultural advantages with its
favorable climate and long growing sea-
son, and even in the development of the
cattle industry, the South still needs more
-and better-milk cows.
"The published figures show that the
1950 U. S. farm milk production
amounted to 56 billion 72 million quarts.
However, the 16 Southern states, which
comprise one-third of the area and con-
tain one-third of the people of the United
States, only produced 13 billion 281 mil-
lion quarts. In other words, instead of
producing its 33 per cent share of the
nation's milk, the South only produced
22 per cent.
"The South could add greatly to its
welfare in every way-by paying more
time and attention to the dairy industry."

First we wish to call to the attention of ice cream manufacturers who received
or may receive the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station Circular S-60 released in
July and containing the formula for the preparation of Orange Injection Material for
the making of Variegated Orange Ice Cream, that further experiments have led to

of the fruit, however, has been a limiting
factor in the selection of specific fruits
for such use.
Citrus fruits, because of their high acid
content, have not been found suitable as
flavoring materials for ice cream when
used in the conventional manner to give
a homogeneous mixture in the finished
product. The milk proteins become de-
stabilized at the low pH of the citrus
juices and the resulting ice cream loses
some of its desirable properties.
V The flavor compatibility of orange pro-
ducts and of dairy products, however, has
been appreciated for many years. Con-
sumer acceptance of such a combination
has been demonstrated by such arrange-
ments as orange sherbet and vanilla ice
cream in a single cup or package and as
ice cream bricks that consist of two layers
of vanilla ice cream separated by a layer
of orange sherbet.
A revolutionary method of preparing
fruit-flavored ice creams was introduced
in the early 1930's. This consisted of
preparing a puree-type product that was
injected into a semi-frozen stream of ice
cream to form streams or bands of the
flavoring material in a vanilla-flavored
ice-cream. To such ice creams may be
ascribed the term "built-in-sundae." The
consumer receives the pleasant flavor sen-
sation of the fruit only intermittently, for
Sthe predominance in quantity of the ser-
ving is vanilla ice cream. However, the
intensity of the fruit flavor is so great
that the consumer responds with delight-
ful eagerness for many repetitions of the
experience. An additional attribute of
such ice cream is its eye-catching quality.
Color adds greatly to the enjoyment of
foods and certainly tempts the palate of
the onlooker when ice cream of pleasantly
contrasting color arrangements meets the
In considering the several citrus juices
for the injection-type fruit preparation it
was very evident, from a knowledge of
canned and frozen concentrated orange
juices, that heat modification of the deli-
cate citrus flavors was a problem of major
importance because the established process
of preparing the injection purees included
heating of the fruit product. It was ob-
vious, therefore, that another approach
would be essential if the desirable attri-
butes of fresh orange, lemon, lime and
tangerine juices were to become partners
with the recognized qualities of milk con-
stituents in providing a new eating enjoy-
ment that offers the contrasting and stim-
ulating tartness of the citrus products

his address and participation in an all day dairy farm and parltmne tour at the Florida Dairy
Association Annual Convention in Miami Beach June 25th.
As an introduction to the Farm Tank Program for handling of milk at the dairy
farm with tank truck pick up (tanker), Florida's flag flies at the top of the mast.
The concentrated grade A milk producing area of Dade and
neighboring counties providing milk for Greater Miami with
their several score of individual tanker trucks for each dairy
farm's daily delivery to the milk plants have set the pattern for
S sanitation and economy for the nation. Other Florida cities are
paralleling this area in their progress and programs.

southwest corner of the United States has been quite completely
perfected in the Miami area with a much less number of dairy-

The wide opening up of another great,
useful era. Economics is the driving
force. Many leaders say it will be to the
nation as great an advancement as these
six others herewith related. WHY? The
value seems to be first to the quality of
the product. Second, the economics are
declared to be of equal value to the farm-
er and to the Milk HANDLER or
PROCESSOR. Perhaps first in its indi-
vidual establishment to the farmer and
then to the milk plant. It has been my
observation that of the multitude of these

most every DAIRY STATE, none have
stood still or gone backward. The now

my eyes open and alert to see. I have
entered into many discussions and asked
many questions. I am continually photo-
graphing in color movies those new ad-
vanced processes and items, which one
set of minds have improved or have done
differently than some one else.
I will therefore try to give you my ob-
servations of the milk tank truck and not
any experience of my own in owning or
The three groups directly concerned
with this new development in milk trans-
portation which I have rated so highly
among great American inventions are the
milk consumer, the milk producer and
the milk processor-distributor. How will
the tank truck affect each of these?
From the consumer standpoint, the
quality of milk is perhaps more uniform-
ly maintained, and in terms of flavor and
palatability made more desirable as a bev-
erage and food. The leaders who are
doing it say in time the costs of produc-
tion and handling may have a final price
recognition to the consumer.
From the milk producer standpoint I
will quote fro mthe experience of users
whose production is from 150 gallons to
600 gallons per day pick up. At the
present time the average investment for
a tank of 200 gallon capacity is about
$2,300 completely equipped and in-
stalled. On a 100 gallon tank we be-
lieve that this cost will be between $1,500
and $1,600. This is a substantial invest-
ment and obviously the larger the pro-
duction the less amount per can that has
to be invested. However, if we compare
this investment with other pieces of
equipment that are found on the average
farm today, we definitely feel that a
return on the investment in the tank is
equal to or more than on the investment
of a comparable amount in other labor-
saving devices and, in addition, improves
the quality of the farm's principal cash
SAVINGS TO MILK PRODUCER
Among the definite savings exper-
ienced by milk producers, using the tank
truck, are the savings in butterfat, in
volume (weights) and in can expense.
They amounted to an estimated saving of
4 cents per hundredweight for volume,
4 cents per hundredweight for butterfat,
and 2 cents per can expense, making a
total saving to the producer of 10 cents
per hundredweight plus any additional
savings that could be passed on to the
producer in the form of decreasing haul-
ing rates which users fully expect can
be a minimum of 5 cents per hundred-
weight, and probably a few cents more,
depending upon the route and if and
when every other day milk collection be-

comes the standardized practice.
Further on the farmer's side of the
economics of the tank truck one user
states that: "Present milk-handling meth-
ods are unsanitary, time consuming and
otherwise inefficient when compared with
bulk handling methods, since the new
method is a step toward streamlining
the whole operation." Milk tends to cling
to the tin-lined 10-gallon cans now in
use, but the stainless steel storage tank
sheds all the milk it contains and this
results in a saving on waste. Where bulk
tanks are in use they have saved 13 cents
on each 100 pounds of milk taken from
the cow. This means that if a farmer
produces 500 pounds of milk a day, his
daily saving is 65 cents. He goes on to
say: "It also makes it possible for the
farmer to sell his milk before it leaves
the farm because it is measured and
tested for butterfat before it is hauled
away. These tests are made under the
farmer's eyes, as are also the sediment
tests drawn, one pint from off the bottom
of the tank."
From the standpoint of the milk pro-
cessor the experience which I have gath-
ered from many users indicates that they
do not believe that milk plants will make
any substantial savings through this op-
eration until all 40-quart cans are elimi-
nated in the individual plant. Before this
time and during dual operation, it is be-
lieved there will be some plant savings,
where it is currently necessary to cool
incoming milk prior to its pasteurization;
also there will be some saving in out-of-
pocket expense, particularly where the
receiving of milk is presently done on
an overtime basis. I have heard officials
of large milk organizations speak of the
savings after complete turnover to the
tank truck in cleaning and sterilizing
needs, and the elimination of receiving
the room as now known.
One prominent processor states: "From
our four years of experience, however,
we know that further refinements will
further help to expand this type of oper-
Another plant manager reports that:
"Use of the tank truck reduces the
amount of refrigeration required at the
plant due to the fact that milk is received
cold and can be pumped direct to stor-
age tanks. (No milk cans to buy, rent
or sell.) Plants having all farm tanks
can eliminate the receiving room its
equipment, its labor, cleaning materials
and upkeep. This can amount to from
8 to 20 cents per 100 pounds of milk
received. The farm tanks seem to make
the problem so much easier that in a
large portion of the cases we find the
producers increasing their herds, thus
making the plant's procurement problems
We are finding many smaller milk
companies quickly going 100% to the
tank truck operation. The Los Angeles
area is now 100% farm tank operation.
The states of Washington, Oregon, Wis-
consin, Maryland, Connecticut, and per-
haps others have published regulations
for Farm Bulk Tanks. The triple "A"
Standards Committee of our industry have
given serious, thoughtful attention to the
subject. The United States Department
of Weights and Measures under date of
February 20, 1953, have published a ten-
tative code for Farm Milk Tanks.

GRASS VARIETIES. LIMING, FERTILIZATION AND SEEDING FOR
SUMMER. WINTER AND TEMPORARY PASTURES AND HAY CROPS
Now is the time to begin making plans for management of pastures so as to
increase the winter feed supply. In making plans the individual dairyman should
keep in mind not only his needs for feed but also the possibilities for growing the
pasture plants on his farm. He may need not only to manage his summer grass pas-
tures so as to provide winter grazing and to grow winter legumes wherever possible,
but also to plant temporary grazing crops where it is indicated that these can be
grown and will be needed. Factors that must be considered include varieties, liming,
fertilization, seeding and irrigation.
On dairy farms where all or most of the grazing is provided by summer grasses,
grown alone, the quantity and quality of forage may be improved considerably by
fall fertilization. The exact kind of fertilizer that should be applied will depend
somewhat upon the kind of fertilizer that was used during the earlier part of grazing
season. If a complete fertilizer, such as 8-8-8, was used in the spring, an application
of a nitrogen material or of a nitrogen-
potash topdresser may suffice. On the
other hand if only nitrogen was used in
the spring, a complete fertilizer should
be applied in the fall. The N-P-K ratio
for the year should range between 2-1-2
for Pangola grass and 4-1-2 for most of
the other grasses. The amount of nitro-
gen applied in fertilizer chosen should
range from 32 to 48 lbs. per acre, de-
pending upon the amount of grazing that
is expected to be needed. This applica-
tion may be made any time during Sep-
tember in the northern part of Florida
and any time up through October in the
central and southern parts of the State.
Such an application will result in growth
of high quality forage until frost occurs
and during periods of favorable weather
throughout the winter.
Winter legumes grown in combination
with summer grasses not only provide
good grazing during the late winter and
early spring but also store nitrogen in
the soil for use by the grasses during the
summer. Several varieties of winter leg-
umes have been found to be suitable for
use in Florida. Varieties should be se-
lected on the basis of soil conditions on
LOUISIANA WHITE is one of the
most productive clovers that can be used
in Florida. It has a long grazing season
and, under favorable moisture conditions
and with adequate fertilization, many
plants may live through the summer.
Louisiana White is a prolific seeder and
will reseed in subsequent years following
the establishment of a good stand that
has been allowed to produce seed. LAD-
INO, a giant white clover, has been used
successfully in all parts of the state. It
grows vigorously when well fertilized but
is a poor seeder under length-of-day
conditions that exist in Florida. With
inadequate fertilization or under adverse
weather conditions it may die out during
the summer. As a result, stands may not
be maintained without reseeding. Both
Louisiana White and Ladino require an
abundant supply of soil moisture and will
stand flooding for short periods. If rain-
fall is inadequate or poorly distributed
irrigation may be found profitable.
CRIMSON CLOVER, both common
and reseeding types, have been used suc-
cesfully on the medium to heavy well-
drained soils in the area west of Madison.
Some successful plantings have been made
in other parts of the state. However,
Crimson clover is regarded as being poor-
ly suited for use in peninsular Florida,
as the soils in that section of the state
are either too wet or too dry. Its graz-
ing season is not as long as that of
Louisiana white clover and Ladino but it
comes into production earlier.
White Sweet Clover
Two varieties of the annual WHITE
SWEET CLOVER HUBAM and
FLORANA-have been used successful-
ly in all parts of Florida. Annual white
sweet clover is more widely adapted than

either Louisiana White or Crimson clover.
It prefers moist soils but will not stand
flooding. It will grow on well drained
sandy soils but stands on such soils may
be damaged if the rainfall is inadequate
during the early stages of growth. Once
established, annual white sweet clover will
withstand very dry conditions because of
its deep root system.
Several varieties of KENLAND RED
CLOVER have been tested in Florida.
Of those tested to date, Kenland seems
to be best adapted for use under our
conditions. It grows fairly well wherever
Crimson or Louisiana White clovers can
be grown. However, it will not stand as
much flooding as will Louisiana White.
When properly managed, it has a longer
grazing season than any of the other
clovers grown widely in Florida. It is
a poor seeder under our conditions and
annual reseeding is generally necessary
for maintenance of a stand although some
plants will live through the summer.
Sweet Yellow Lupine
During recent years considerable inter-
est has developed in white-seeded Sweet
Yellow Lupine as a grazing crop for the
well drained sandy soils in central and
northern Florida. In those sections of the
State, lupine will grow on almost any
well drained soil that has been properly

fertilized. It will nco withstand flooding.
Living and Fertilizing
Any of the legumes listed above may
be planted on established sods of summer
grasses. The grass should be closely
grazed prior to seeding. Most of these
legumes listed do best if soil pH values
are in the neighborhood of 6.5. How-
ever, it is not necessary that the pH be
maintained at such a level if the calcium
supply in the soil equals or exceeds 1200
pounds per acre. In general, soils that
have not been limed will require one to
two tons of ground limestone per acre to
bring the pH value up to 6.5. One ton
of limestone would supply approximately
800 pounds of calcium.
When legumes are seeded on grass
sods that have been limed and well fer-
tilized for two or more years an 0-10-20
or 0-8-24 fertilizer, applied in the fall at
the rate of 500 pounds per acre, should
supply adequate quantities of phosphorus
and potash for good growth during the
first part of the grazing season. On most
soils, especially those that are sandy, an
additional application of potash in Feb-
ruary or early March to clovers is not
only desirable but is necessary if develop-
ment of potash deficiency is to be pre-
vented. The additional potash may be
supplied by an application of 100 pounds
of muriate of potash or 300 pounds of
0-10-20 or 0-8-24 per acre.
Legumes planted on newly established
grass sods should be fertilized in the fall
with 0-14-14 and in February or March
with 0-10-20 or 0-8-24, at the rates sug-
Minor elements are required for good
growth of clover on some soils in central
and southern Florida. If need for minor
elements is suspected they should be ap-
plied at planting time at the following
rates, in pounds per acre: copper sul-
fate, 15 to 20; manganese sulfate, 15 to
20; zinc sulfate, 10; and borax, 5 to 10.
Seeding should be done during Oc-
tober or in early November for best re-
sults, but may be done as late as De-
cember 15. Late seedings usually pro-
duce only small amounts of forage. It
is important that soil moisture conditions
at the time of seeding be favorable for
germination and growth. Good moisture
conditions not only favor establishment
of the stand but also tend to protect the
inoculant which must be applied to the
seed or to the soil to establish the nitro-
gen fixing bacteria in the nodules on the
roots of the plant.

4-H CATTLE TO EXHIBIT
AT MID-SOUTH JERSEY SHOW
The Florida Jersey Cattle Club and in-
dividuals interested in 4-H Club work
are making it possible for Florida to be
represented in the Regional Junior Jersey
Show to be held in connection with the
Mid-South Fair at Memphis September
25 to October 3. The top 4-H Jerseys
in the state have been selected by a Com-
mittee of Florida Jersey Cattle Club
members and C. W. Reaves, Florida Ex-
tension Dairyman, to represent the state
at Memphis. In addition to financial aid
by the Florida Jersey Cattle Club, a num-
ber of individuals are giving assistance
in providing trucks and in other ways
to enable the cattle to be exhibited.
Fifteen head belonging to eleven out-
standing 4-H Dairy Club members from
Dade, Polk, St. Johns, Duval and Jack-
son counties will be exhibited. Attractive
signs, exhibitor cards and "FLORIDA"
cow blankets in 4-H colors will add to
the attractiveness of these outstanding
4-H animals and help publicize the pro-
gressive dairy industry of Florida.

7th Annual West Florida Dairy Show
121 Entries Double Previous Shows
Marianna 4-H Member Exhibits Grand Champion of the Show
By: C. W. Reaves, State Extension Dairyman
Dairymen and future dairymen of the 14-county Northwest Florida area, from
Tallahassee to Pensacola, entered 121 dairy animals at the 7th Annual West Florida
Dairy Show held in Chipley August 13th practically doubling the number of entries
of any previous show.
Although the Show almost doubled previous years in size, there was no loss of
quality. A tabulation shows 62 in the Blue Ribbon Group, 30 in the Red Ribbon
Group and 29 in the White Ribbon Group, a total of 121 in all.
A major addition to the show was the greatly enlarged Open Dairy Show which
was sponsored by the three large milk companies in the area, Foremost Dairies,
Southern Dairies and Borden Dairies. A total of 24 animals were shown in the Open
Show, 59 in the 4-H Show and 38 in the FFA Show.
Other innovations which added to the participation this year were the "New"
and "Old" County Groups established in order to encourage new counties to partici-
pate. That this was a success was indicated by the fact that there were four counties
represented in the New County Group competing for the "County Group" honors.
Likewise, grade classes were provided growing dairy industry. Mr. Mayo an-

division, thus eliminating the necessity of group who have devoted much time and

animals. Florida dairy industry and the show, that

4-H Member Exhibits Grand
Clyde Crutchfield, 18-year-old 4-H
member and son of Mr. and Mrs. M. T.
Crutchfield of Marianna, took top honors
in the show with a four-year-old reg-
istered Jersey. Clyde has won many top
4-H awards and will exhibit his prize
animal at the Southeastern regional show
in Memphis, Tenn., this fall. He was
grand champion grade winner at the last
state contest and was a member of the
1952 State Champion 4-H Judging Team.
Earl Crutchfield, Marianna 4-H entry
and younger brother of Clyde, won the
"fitting trophy" for the best groomed
animal in the show, and George Ford,
FFA entry of Quincy, won the trophy
for the best job of showmanship.
Although the show was not set up for
a reserve champion winner, Miss Lyn
Fitzpatrick, Jackson County, ran a close
second in the competition for top show

Letter To The Editor
By: Alf R. Nielsen
School Milk Prices and Newspaper Editorials
DITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Nielsen is recognized in his own community of West Palm Beach as an
outstanding civic and youth leader. He is recognized by his fellow dairy men as "Dean of the
Florida Dairy Industry" and an outstanding national leader by the entire Dairy Industry. He
holds the distinction of being the first graduate of the College of Agriculture, University of
Florida, in dairying. He has served for many years as Chairman of the University of Florida
Committee for the Florida Dairy Industry.
Editorials in the August 14th, 1953 Tampa Tribune, and August 15th, 1953
Florida Times-Union have commended the action of the 1953 Florida Legislature and
the recent ruling of the Attorney General, Richard Ervin, wherein the Florida Milk
Commission cannot fix prices at any level on milk sold to schools and charitable
These editorials imply that the above mentioned action of the Legislature and
possible further expansion of the elimination of price fixing of the Florida Milk
Commission will automatically reduce the price of milk to consumers.
One might ask the question, whether these newspapers in their subscription and
advertising rates, can show as little increase in the cost of their services and product
as the dairy industry in the cost of their products to consumers ?
The question might also be asked, what product purchased and sold in school
cafeterias has increased as little in price as milk has? About the only item the various
cafeterias purchase that has shown as small an increase in price is orange juice.
The dairy industry uses a large amount of various grains that are blended to
make up very essential dairy feed. All of these grains are supported by the National
Government so that a minimum price is maintained. This has kept the cost of dairy
feeds artificially high in spite of surplus production throughout the nation.
The ever increasing cost of labor, which is important in producing good, safe
milk, and which also makes everything that a dairyman uses cost more, is continually
developing more and more problems for the dairy industry in keeping the cost of
milk reasonable to consumers.
Just why newspapers, editorial writers and a small segment of our population
insists upon asking an industry like the dairy industry to provide milk at a loss to
their children and unfortunates in charitable institutions, is beyond the comprehension
of the men and women that produce the milk, process and distribute this most
Using the same argument as do the people that continually insist upon lower and
lower prices for milk, certainly the dairy industry as taxpayers supporting the public
schools and other institutions would be justified in asking the school teachers, ad-
ministrators of the school system and various charitable institutions to work for the
same wages and salaries that they received before World War II.
The dairy industry of the State of Florida can be proud of the fact that milk
has only increased 42.2% since 1939. What other product used in everyday living
can show such a small increase in cost?
It might be well to call to the attention of these editorial writers and the Legis-
lature of the State of Florida, the fact that there is no marketing area of consequence
within the boundaries of the United States that is not under a milk regulatory agency
of the Federal Government or some form of State Milk control. These agencies in
these various marketing areas set the prices of milk for various grades produced.
Dairymen of the State of Florida have problems peculiar to Florida and the
semi-tropical climate in which milk is produced. The industry as a whole believes
that the closer home we have regulatory agencies the better rules and regulations can
be promulgated to fit conditions peculiar to the various sections of the State of Florida.
For that reason, the industry of the State of Florida has insisted upon their own
regulatory agency within the State; and furthermore, it must be emphasized that the
cost of administering the agency is borne entirely by the dairy industry itself.
Yes indeed, the growing and expanding dairy industry of the State of Florida is
justified in being proud of the fact that in co-operation with the Florida Milk Com-
mission, it has been successful in keeping the price of milk as low as they have,
keeping in mind always having high quality, safe milk.
Compare our 42.2% increase over 1939 with the average throughout the United
States where Federal Control operates, of 86% increase.
The dairy industry of the State of Florida, in co-operation with the Milk Com-
mission supplies milk to school cafeterias and charitable institutions at a discount of
1/2c per 1/2 pint of milk. Very little, if any profit is made by the dairy industry as a

"The world into which I was born was
little concerned over the Armenian massa-
cres committed by the Turks in 1895, and
even less disposed to realize the effects

his family fought to save their cows, be-
cause their one objective was to maintain
the life of their small son.
It is amazing how this small boy lived
through the Turkish massacre, but even
more amazing that he survived the long
years of famine which followed.
Since the family was fortunate enough
to save a few cows, they lived on milk
and milk products for over ten years. For
breakfast the small boy would have a dish
of yogurt. At lunch time a few pieces of
cheese and bread with a glass of yogurt,

This same routine of meals was broken

Milk sugar and fat are among the most
valuable of all our "body fuels" because
they are readily absorbed by our tissues
to give us heat and energy. The protein
is a muscle builder, and it also keeps the
body in repair. The mineral salts-especi-
ally phosphorus and calcium-help the
body make sturdy bones. Our richest
source of calcium comes from milk.
Thus I know from my own personal
experience that milk is a necessity of life
and that many people will be deprived

ORANGE ICE CREAM
(Continued from page 8)
In considering the individual ingredi-
ents that are necessary to give proper
consistency to the injection-type f r u it
preparation there appeared to be an al-
ternate approach. The obvious question-
why not combine some of the ingredients
and give them the necessary heat treat-
ment prior to the addition of the citrus
juices? Early trials confirmed such a sup-
position to be feasible.
Arriving at Formula
Final formula selection was made from
among a few of the preparations after
injection into ice cream and subsequent
hardening of the finished ice cream.
Taken into consideration were dipping
characteristics, appearance of the dipped
portion before, during and after slight
melting, and palate response to flavor
Other Citrus Fruits
The frozen lemon, lime and tangerine
products available on the local market
have been processed into the respective ice
cream injection materials. When replac-
ing the orange concentrate in the formula,
two of them resulted in finished prepara-
tions that were understabilized. A similar
condition prevailed when frozen concen-
trated grape juice was used. This condi-
tion required a slight change in the for-
mula whereby the stabilizer content was
increased by about 15 percent. Such
differences are to be expected and the
necessary modifications in the formula
must be made if uniformity of product
is to be obtained.
This process is suitable for the prepara-
tion of injection-type materials of all
fresh fruits by using the juice or the
puree of the fruit. Fruit juices or puree
having pronounced flavors may be used
as "single strength" products, while those
of low flavor intensity may be concen-
trated or they may be fortified with the
respective pure fruit concentrated flavor
Use in Ice Cream
These injection-type fruit products may
be used at the rate of 15 to 20 percent
by weight of the finished ice cream, de-
pending upon the composition of the ice
cream mix. Standards for composition of
fruit ice creams will determine the maxi-
mum amount to be used.
If the ice cream mix is prepared of
butterfat-containing dairy products not
highly colored the resulting ice cream will
provide a more desirable color contrast
for the brightly colored fruit preparations.
The method described is unique in
that the true fresh flavors of fruits are
retained in the finished products. The use
of colloids and sweeteners in preparing
injection-type products is not new, but
the use of the fresh fruit juices and/or
purees in the manner outlined makes
possible the production of certain new
fruit preparations as injection-type flavor-
ing materials for ice cream.
Storing the Material
No more specific data are available on
the keeping quality of the injection ma-
terial. It is safe to store at 350 to 400 F.
for 12 to 16 hours, and perhaps slightly
longer if the material goes into storage
at 300 F. or lower (it will not be frozen
at 300 F.). Keep in the hardening room
if longer storage is necessary.
Sales of the variegated orange ice
cream on the campus of the University
of Florida have been running at about 9
to 10 per cent of all ice cream sold. No
publicity or point of sales displays have
It would appear that the ice cream
manufacturers in Florida should be ready
for the winter tourists by offering the
variegated orange ice cream. Orange
growers and processors of the frozen con-
centrate should unite with them in a
sound promotion campaign.
Make it from the very best Florida
grown oranges and promote it to the
fullest. A good impression now will be
the very best "salesman" in "Yankee Ter-
ritory" later. Our ambassadors, the tour-
ists, can do much to put variegated orange
ice cream in regular demand as a fruit
ice cream. They will if they like it, and
they will like it if it is properly made."

JERSEY CATTLE CLUB NEWS
The American Jersey Cattle Club recently announced the following reports on
official registry tests made in the herds of several of Florida's well known Jersey
breeders. All records were made under supervision of the University of Florida and
reported to the American Jersey Cattle Club, which has its national headquarters in
Columbus, Ohio, for official approval and publication.
According to the A.J.C.C., the Jersey breed has more officially classified animals
than any other dairy breed. The classification program was started in 1932.

Ruby has been Officially rated Very
Good for type. She weighs approximately
950 lbs. During her last lactation Ruby
averaged 51 lbs. of milk a day (24
quarts). She reached a peak of 93 lbs.
of milk a day. Her high month was April
1952 with 2415 Ibs. of milk. She was on
good Florida clover pasture, all of the
home cured hay she wanted to eat and
approximately 25 lbs. of a mixture of
grain and citrus pulp a day.
While making these high records Ruby
has dropped 7 calves, twice having twin
calves. A son, X. Standard Ivy Rex, is
herd sire at Sunshine Farms, Merced, Cali-
fornia, owned by Mr. E. E. Greenough.
Mr. Greenough has shipped some heifers
to Japan who were bred to Rex, and Ruby
now has some granddaughters in Japan.

For Winter Dairy Feeds
(Continued from page 13)
Inoculation should be carried out care-
fully. It is generally recommended that
the inoculant for clovers be applied at
five times and that for lupines at twice
the rates recommended on the containers.
The inoculated seed should be protected
against sunlight and planted immediately.
Under favorable moisture conditions
clover may be seeded directly on the
closely grazed sod without covering them
with soil. However, it is generally good
practice to scarify the sod lightly with a
disk and plant the seed using a culti-
packer with seeding attachment. If a
cultipacker is not available the seed may
be sown with a whirlwind seeder and
covered with a log roller. Sweet lupines
should be seeded with a grain drill or
with a special seeder which will place
the seed one to two inches below the
surface of the soil.
Many farmers prefer to use a small
amount of nitrogen in their clover ferti-
lizers. It is generally felt that nitrogen
in clover will tend to stimulate the grasses
to the detriment of the legumes. This
drawback to application of nitrogen to
clovers can be partially offset if grazing
of the grass is continued after fertiliza-
tion and the cattle are removed as soon
as damage to the new clover seedlings
becomes apparent. If some nitrogen in the
clover fertilizer is desired it is recom-
mended that 3-12-12, 3-10-20 or 3-8-24
be substituted respectively for 0-14-14,
0-10-20, or 0-8-24.
Temporary grazing crops are counted
upon heavily in the central and northern
parts of the state for part of the winter
grazing. They may be used in the south-
ern part of the state if suitable soils are
available and flooding can be prevented.
Crops used include oats, rye, wheat, rye
grass, and rescue grass. In planting such
temporary grazing crops, choice of varie-
ties, fertilization and seeding rates, dates
and methods should receive attention.
Several varieties of oats are suitable
for use in Florida. Of these, Southland
is most popular at the present time. This
variety produces more early growth than
any of the other varieties in common use.
However, it is subject to attack by some
of the newer races of crown rust and is
often severely damaged by culm rot. For
this reason it may be desirable to use
some other variety. Floriland, which is
quite similar to Southland as regards the
period of maximum growth, probably has
the highest degree of rust resistance of
any variety of oats available to Florida
farmers. It is a good forage producer
but it has poor grain quality. Victor-

grain 48-93 is more cold resistant than
other varieties of oats commonly used in
Florida. It produces more forage during
the cool months of January and Febru-
ary than does Floriland and Southland.
It is subject to damage by Victoria blight
and certain races of rust. However, Vic-
toria blight has not been a serious dis-
ease in Florida for the last three years.
Wheat, of which two varieties-Coast-
al and Coker 47-27-have been found
adapted to Florida, has come into gen-
eral use in some areas. Wheat, like Vic-
torgrain oats is winter hardy and will
furnish considerable amounts of forage
during the cold part of the winter.
Florida Black rye is an excellent forage
producer. When planted early it will
produce as much forage as any of the
other small grains used for winter graz-
Rye grass is a good forage producer
but most of its growth occurs during
March at which time grazing may be fur-
nished by winter legumes. Rescue grass
has received considerable attention in
Florida. On the basis of the limited in-
formation available it appears that rescue
grass is inferior to the other temporary
All of the above suggestions apply to
mineral soils only. The production of
winter grazing crops on organic soils is
an entirely different proposition. Tall
fescue grass is considered to be one of
the best winter grasses for organic soils.
The program outlined above includes
fall fertilization of summer grasses to
produce forage for use during the early
part of the winter season, the production
of winter legumes for use during late
winter and through the spring season,
the use of temporary grazing crops to
fill in the slack period between the sum-
mer grasses and winter legumes, and the
production of alfalfa hay for use as a
supplement to the grazing crops and

Largest Dairy Group Attend
University Course for Herdsmen
Studies Feature Herd Replacements and Pasture Development
The Dairy Herdsmen's Short Course, an annual event sponsored jointly by the
University of Florida and the Florida Dairy Industry Association was held in
Gainesville August 25-27.
Attendance was greater than in previous years with herdsmen and owners
coming from most parts of peninsular Florida and from as widely separated areas
as Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Miami and Ft. Myers. Visiting livestock owners from
Cuba and Bolivia also were present.
Dr. E. L. Fouts, Head of the Dairy Science Department welcomed the group
and outlined the work of the University in Dairy research and training.
In general, two subjects were featured. These were "Breeding and Development
of home raised Replacements" and "Pastures and their Utilization."
Extension Dairyman, C. W. Reaves explained numerous production testing pro-
grams that are available to dairymen and the many advantages of knowing the pro-
ducing ability of each cow as well as of the entire herd. Dr. R. B. Becker then pointed
out the fundamentals of inheritance of milk production and how records can be used
in establishing families of high producing cows.

Dr. Marshall reported on pasture work

nutrients was 4c per lb. These dairymen
spent from $14.00 to $30.00 per acre on
pastures and from these, and calculations
at other farms, an annual charge per cow
for pasture of $27.00 appears to be fair
to both cow and dairyman.
HAY AND GRASS SILAGE
During the peak of pasture season
more grass and clover are produced than
the cows can consume. Dr. J. M. Wing
discussed the utilization of this excess
herbage in terms of silage and hay. In-
expensive types of horizontal and stack
silos and equipment for harvest and stor-
age of grass silage was presented. A
moving picture showing grass silage har-
vesting methods in other states added
greatly to the program. Prof. J. M.

"BREAD AND MILK" PRICES
September 7th releases announce that
the Bakery industry finds it necessary to
increase the price of bread because of the
increased cost of producing a loaf of
It is not difficult to believe that bread
production costs have continued to rise.
However, it is difficult for us to under-
stand why some of the public and some
newspaper writers fail to understand that
the costs of producing "milk" and the
cost of processing and delivering milk
have continued to rise since the begin-
ning of price rises for all other foods and
most every other necessity of life.
Bread manufacturers list among their
latest increased costs: the price of flour,
lard, milk, freight rates, packaging paper
and materials and bakery equipment.
The Florida Dairy industry could enu-
merate many comparable milk production
and processing cost increases. The con-
sumer cannot reasonably expect and we
are convinced that they do not expect
either the bakeries or the dairies to pro-
duce and furnish to them any product
below cost or at a price which does not
provide a reasonable profit.
This includes school bread, school milk
and all other school or other institutional
Finds Dairies Not Guilty
Of Veterinarian's Charges
Following claims made by former State
Veterinarian Dr. Paul Vickers, upon his
dismissal by the Live Stock Sanitary Board
to the effect that Florida's milk supply
was sub-standard, State officials appropri-
ately suggested to the Dairy Industry of-
ficials that the charges should be carefully
investigated. The Dairy Industry spokes-
man stated that the dairy industry denied
the claims that had been made and that
such an investigation would not only be
welcomed but that the results should be
Reports have now been submitted to

tion records of Florida's approximately
1,400 milk producing dairy farms by the
the Commmissioner of Agriculture who is
responsible under the Florida Milk and
Milk Products Law for maintaining the
standards of Dairies and Dairy products,
and by the State Board of Health, which
is responsible for the health standards of

These reports have not yet been re-

vileged to announce that the net result
of the reports give Florida's milk supply
a "top rating" for sanitation and quality.

ON MILK PRICES
According to figures released by the
U. S. Dept. of Agriculture early in 1953,
milk has increased in price less than other
foods. For instance, this report indicates
that if the price of milk had increased as
much as coffee, the price of milk 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.
MILK VS. CIGARETTES
Prices do seem high for almost every-
thing we buy as compared to pre-war
prices. But how many consumers stop
to consider what they are getting for the
price they pay?
American consumers are said to be
spending more of their dollars for ciga-
rettes than they are for milk. The price
of a package of cigarettes and a quart of
milk are about the same. Yet the quart
of milk is two pounds of Nature's most
nearly perfect food, 100% digestible
with no waste, while the cigarettes go
up in smoke. How about that?

Alabama has legalized the manufacture
and sale of "Mellorine," a combination
of vegetable fat and milk solids, as an

GOVERNOR REAPPOINTS NICHOLAS
MILK COMMISSION ADMINISTRATOR
Governor McCarty announced July
22nd the reappointment of L. K. Nicho-
las, Jr., of Miami and Jacksonville, to
his fourth consecutive term as administra-
tor of the Florida Milk Commission.
Mr. Nicholas was first appointed by
Governor Holland after serving as a
deputy administrator. His long and suc-
cessful service as Executive head of the
Milk Commission, considered one of the
most difficult administrative positions of
the State's various agencies, is a tribute to
Mr. Nicholas' ability.
During his service as administrator, he
has served as secretary, vice-president and
president of the National Conference of
Milk Commission Administrators. His
advice and assistance was sought on a
number of occasions during the food
shortage years of the war by the officials
of the National regulatory agencies.
Mr. Nicholas' official residence is in
Miami where his wife and three lovely
daughters reside, but his duties as admin-
istrator keep him in the Jacksonville
headquarters of the Commission a large
part of the time.

larger and better shows in the state.

Milk Man Saves Child
In Unusual Accident
The following story of heroism on
the part of a Jacksonville Milk Man
was related in the Jacksonville morning
paper, The Florida Times-Union, on
Charles Skaff, 27, of the Skaff and
Sons Dairy, Jacksonville, was peacefully
delivering milk on Sunday morning pre-
ceding Labor Day, when he heard a
mother's screams for help a half block
away. Abandoning his milk truck in the
middle of the street, Milkman Skaff
rushed to the home of Mrs. D. L. Blan-
ton, where he found Mrs. Blanton and a
neighbor frantically working with a 14-
month-old child, Steve Blanton, who was
suffocating from a lollypop which he had
acidently gotten lodged in his throat.
After finding that the usual first aid
method of holding the child upside down
and slapping the back and chest were of
no avail, Skaff, seeing the child already
turning blue from suffocation, decided
upon an unusual effort to save him.
He held Steve tight in his arms and
pressed his mouth against the child's-
and sucked. In half a minute the candy
was drawn out. The child began to
Skaff handed the boy to Mrs. Hanks,
the neighbor, then turned his rescue ef-
forts to Mrs. Blanton, who had fallen
into a faint on the floor. He carried her
into the house and stood by until she
Then Skaff went back to work, de-
livering milk, with the thanks of Mrs.
Blanton and Mrs. Hanks ringing in his
ears. Skaff acted pretty modest about
the whole thing in discussing the incident
later. "I have three kids of my own,"
he said, "and when I saw that boy turning
blue I knew right away what the matter
was. Kids are always getting things
caught in their throats." Then he added,
"But this is the first time I ever had to
act like a suction pump."

GUERNSEY CATTLE CLUB NEWS
GUERNSEY REGISTRY TESTS ARE ANNOUNCED

School Milk Prices and Newspaper Editorials
(Continued from page 18)
whole with such a discount. What other industries, such as the meat industry, flour
and baking industry, or any other industry supplying products to school cafeterias
can show such consideration ?
The action on the part of the Legislature during the session of 1953 wherein
they eliminated the authority of the Florida Milk Commission to set prices on milk
purchased at the farm, and eliminated the authority of the Milk Commission to set
minimum prices for it to school cafeterias and charitable institutions can become the
means whereby the school children and unfortunate people in charitable institutions
can become the "dumping ground" for "distress" or low quality milk.
It is doubtful that any reputable dairy concern or group of farmers will sell milk
below cost to these institutions. The profits obtainable cannot justify such a policy.
Of necessity, the quality of milk must be in keeping with the price obtained for it.
People generally get what they pay for. Certainly the people of Florida want to be
sure that the milk their children drink in school cafeterias is safe and of good quality.
They cannot be sure of the quality if it is sold at less than it costs to produce, process
Florida is growing in population from month to month and year to year, and
adequate supply of good, wholesome, safe milk must be available to this increasing
population if we are going to continue to grow and expand as a State.
Florida has made great progress in its dairy industry. Florida must continue to
expand and progress in this essential industry.
With all the regulations emanating from Washington by way of artificially
holding prices up on all grains that go into dairy feeds so essential to good dairy
production; with ever increasing wages of every segment of our national economy;
with increasing freight rates and other transportation; the increasing cost of trucks,
farm machinery and everything a dairyman uses in the production of milk, and the
increasing cost of labor in the production, processing and distribution of milk, it is
highly essential that Florida as a whole sees to it that a regulatory agency such as
the Florida Milk Commission be fostered and maintained. The Dairy Industry, in
co-operation with the Florida Milk Commission can assure the people of the State of
Florida an orderly market for a safe, high quality milk at the very lowest cost possible
