OUR GREATEST PROBLEMS ARE HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS
By: NORMAN MYRICK, Editor
American Milk Review, New York
NOTE: Following Mr. Myrick's visit to Florida in June as a guest
speaker at the Annual Meeting of the Florida Dairy Association at
St. Petersburg Beach, the Dairy News asked him for a guest editorial.
We are sure our Dairy News readers will be pleased that Mr. Myrick
responded with the following appraisal of the problems of the dairy
The rapid growth of population that is taking place in the United States is
the single most important factor affecting the dairy business today. The popu-
lation of the United States is growing at the rate of 3 million people a year, a
development which poses the same ancient problem of human relationships
that always occurs with increases in population.
The most casual glance at the dairy industry shows that the major issues
that concern us today are problems of people. There is no outstanding physical
problem that we have not mastered. The principal question in Florida is the
same question that is found in other markets from one end of the nation to
the other. That question is the problem of "fair competition" which is, in
essence, a problem of people.
The dairy industry in Florida is a classic example of the way in which
physical problems are replaced by human problems as population increases.
The fact that Florida's milk production and milk plants are "among the
most advanced in the nation" is proof to me that your problems are not
physical. Your problems are problems of people, problems of competitive
relationships as the stormy history of the Florida Milk Commission, in its
efforts to help solve your problems, demonstrates.
This poses a fundamental challenge. Historically, societies have failed
when they were unable to find a solution to the problems of human relation-
ships that arose as their populations increased. The pattern has always been a
trend from smaller to larger units with an attendant loss of individual freedom
and creativeness. The same pattern has been apparent in the dairy industry
during the post war years. The number of independent distributors has declined
by as much as 30 per cent. However, within recent months there have been
some developments which suggest that the dairy industry is in the process of
Winding a solution to this problem. Twin Oaks Dairy of Chicago and the Dairy
Center of the Berkshires in Massachusetts are examples of how a number of
small firms, by banding together into a kind of federation, have found a way
to place themselves on an equal plane with their larger competitors without
losing their individual identities as independent businessmen. These have been
creative responses to the great challenge of human relationships involved in
the competitive problem.
There are other obvious manifestations of the profound evolutionary nature
of the period through which the dairy industry is passing. The trend toward
regional plants, the development of automatic techniques in the plant, the
growing influence of organized labor in plant operation, are the surface shop
of basic currents. These currents, difficult to comprehend because of their
size and their intangible character, are the efforts of an enormous number of
people to adjust themselves to a new environment created by a rapidly grow-
ing population and a continuing agricultural and industrial revolution. People
are the fundamental problem. They are both the drivers and the driven. Until
we recognize and understand these first causes, our approach to the practical
problems of the milk business will be inadequate at best and aggravating at
the worst. The basic problem, in my opinion, is not one of economics, not one of
engineering it is a problem of sociology the relationships between people.
These problems as such are not new. What sets the present period apart
from others is the fact that a wide range of trends, a massive array of funda-
mental forces, are bringing to maturity with an unprecedented rapidity prob-
lems that have been developing during the last decade.

Says Advertising Would
Increase Milk Consumption
A New York state newspaper edi-
torial recently cited a lack of aggres-
sive advertising of fluid milk as part
of the reason for "under consumption."
The editorial suggests that dealers
"should . match farmers' contribu-
tions (for programs promoting the
consumption of fluid milk)." Another
editorial writer wonders why Ameri-
cans do not consume as much milk as
some other nations. Another writer
suggests that a Wisconsin congress-
man's statement may be the reason:
"In the 20th Century we have seen
advertising sales promotion of less
healthful substitutes and soft drinks
out-distance dairy products by as
much as 2,000 percent."

Improved Feeding of Cows
Increases Milk Production
From a Talk at Univ. of Fla.
1958 Dairy Field Day
By: DR. J. K. LOOSLI, Cornell University
Improved feeding of dairy cows rep-
resents one of the important factors in
bringing about the steadily increasing
level and efficiency of milk produc-
tion. Better management and improv-
ed control of certain diseases have also
played a significant role. For example,
although early treatment of milk fever
was almost always effective in saving
the animals, it seems evident that for
optimum health and lifetime milk pro-
duction it is advisable to prevent the
disease. Feeding massive doses of
vitamin D before calving is reported
to be effective in preventing milk
fever in high producing cows. Ke-
tosis, an important cause of reduced
milk yields during early lactation in
many dairies, was prevented in a re-
cent experiment by feeding sodium
propionate for six weeks following
calving. Although the causes of this
complicated disease are not under-
stood at present, Howell and cowork-
ers at Oregon have recently shown
that copper deficiency may cause
symptoms similar to those seen in ke-
tosis at any stage of lactation.
Value of Urea in Ration
The abundant supply and relatively
low cost of urea places this nitrogen
feed material in competition with the
natural proteins. When urea is add-
ed to concentrates containing cereal
grains and by-products at a level of
1.0 to 1.5% to furnish 2.6 to 3.9% of
protein equivalent the urea contain-
ing feed is approximately equal to
those containing true proteins. Urea
is not always equal to protein feeds
when it is used at higher levels, and
it is never superior. For good utiliza-
tion, urea must be fed in a mixture
containing starch, such as corn. When
fed with only poor quality hay or
dried grass, or even with molasses
and poor roughage, urea is not well
utilized. Recent claims that a liquid
feed containing molasses, urea, alco-
hol and phosphoric acid is superior
to ordinary rations including cotton-
seed meal or soybean oil meal have
not been supported by research re-
sults. The addition of alcohol to the
mixture of molasses and urea improves
its feeding value with poor roughage,
but corn starch or corn meal is fully
equal to the alcohol for this purpose.
A pelleted product containing thy-
roprotein and alfalfa meal is being
widely advertised as a stimulator for
milk production. This material in-
creases the milk produced by most
cows (but not all cows) for a few
weeks after it is added to the ration.
This thyroid-active material increases
the heart rate and the respiration rate
of cows, and requires that extra feed
be given to sustain the increased milk
production. After the product is with-
drawn milk yield falls below the level
of cows not fed the material. Studies
at the U.S.D.A. show that the total
milk produced for the full lactation
is no more when thyroprotein is fed
part of the time than when it is not
used, and that feeding extra concen-
trates without thyroprotein will also
increase milk production. Breed asso-
ciations prohibit the use of the prod-
uct for cows on official test. There is
a possibility that it could be used to
advantage with selected cows, if a
temporary increase in milk was need-
ed for a special market, but its general

Better Forage Is Recommended
Claims that live cell yeast and dried
rumen preparations will increase milk

findings. I believe that the best way

ADevelopment of Citrus Pulp And
Its Value as A Dairy Cattle Feed
From an Address at the 1958 Annual Meeting of the
Florida Dairy Asso tation June 26, 1958
By: ALBERT J. SNOOKi JR., President
Florida Citrus Processor3 Association
I would like to tell you a little bit about the relationship between the
Dairy Industry and the Citrus Industry in Florida. Those of us associated with
the Citrus Industry, and particularly those of us in the Citrus Pulp Industry,
are very proud that in the short period of 18 years, the Citrus Processors
Association represents a 13 million dollar Industry.
The Citrus Processors Association had its formal beginning in 1941. How-
ever, the first formal records we have on the use of Citrus Pulp for livestock
feed are mentioned in a University of Florida Bulletin, dated October, 1934,
and it says:
"In 1925, one short feeding trial
was conducted at the Florida Agri-
cultural Experiment Station, using
dried grapefruit refuse supplied from
canning factories by the Florida Citrus
Exchange. The six Jersey cows to
which the product was fed gave in-
creased milk yields from additions of
the dried grapefruit refuse to their
So, in fact, the beginning of our
Citrus Pulp Industry was 33 years
Going back beyond 1925, we find
the real beginning of the Citrus Pulp
Industry in that it was the cattle, not
man, that discovered quite by acci-
dent the amazing possibilities of Flor-
ida Citrus Pulp as a nourishing, pro-
ductive feed for cattle. It came about
like this. Florida's citrus canneries are
located at widely scattered points
throughout the citrus growing area.
This area is roughly bounded by lines
across the state at Miami on the south
and Orlando-Ocala on the north -
covering the full width of the penin-
Now it happened that the same geo-
graphical area offered Florida's best
pasture land, too. So, with Florida's
booming cattle industry spreading all
over our State, it was inevitable that
some of the herds would be grazing
near citrus groves and canning plants.
It was only a matter of time until ob-
servant cattlemen noticed their herds
ate the citrus peel with relish when it
was hauled into the woods or pastures
as a means of disposal. Not only that,
but those herds which regularly ate
the citrus fruit residue developed a
sleek, well-fed appearance. Month by
month they put on more beef than
ever before and the herds were up-
graded in every way.
It was only natural that both citrus
men and cattlemen became vitally
interested and scientists were called
in to study this "miracle." They soon
identified and proved beyond all
doubt the value of citrus pulp as a
To give you some idea of the growth
and expansion of Citrus Pulp produc-
tion, in 1940-41, the total production
was 32,730 tons. Seventeen years later,
the annual production was ten times
as much, with an annual production
of almost a third of a million tons.
It is not generally known that you
people of the Dairy Industry have
had a great deal to do with the devel-
opment of Florida Citrus Pulp, both
in its present quality and volume. As
you know, other regions of the coun-
try have available from a local source,
a carbohydrate concentrate in pulp
form. Some regions use beet pulp,
others use apple pummice or pulp.
Here in Florida, Citrus Pulp was
available, but needed certain degrees
of refinement. It was not the Citrus
Pulp Industry that established what
Citrus Pulp should be, but rather the
The Dairy Industry of Florida has
been one of our larger markets, and,
at times, one of our most severe critics.
This latter is pointed out with deepest
appreciation, for without the close
cooperation and first-hand informa-
tion from our own Florida Dairymen,
our industry would be in no position
to take on the job of selling Citrus
Pulp in other parts of the United
States in direct competition with other

How to Prevent Milk
Flavor Defects Resulting
From Bulk Handling
By: HOWARD B. YOUNG
Assistant Extension Dairyman
University of Florida, Gainesville
With the conversion to the bulk
handling of milk, many problems have
been encountered. One of the prob-
lems has been the development of a
flavor defect known as "Rancidity."
Rancidity is probably the most com-
mon flavor defect associated with bulk
handling of milk.
Free fatty acids are liberated from
the butterfat when milk becomes ran-
cid and these fatty acids possess very
potent odors. Rancid milk is bitter
in taste and has a very objectionable
odor. Once milk has developed a ran-
cid flavor, the flavor cannot be re-
moved and also, it is difficult or even
impossible to utilize the milk at all.
The causes and control of rancid
flavor have been studied extensively.
It was found that the problem occur-
red most frequently on farms employ-
ing pipeline milkers. Through re-
search, the principal cause has been
found to be excessive foaming under
certain conditions of air intake and
milk flow in these systems.
Excessive air intake and foam for-
mation may be eliminated by (1) re-
ducing the amount of air admitted at
the milker claw and other points for
the purpose of assisting in moving air
through the lines, (2) keeping all joints
in the pipeline tight, (3) eliminate the
use of risers in pipeline whenever pos-
sible, (4) keeping high and low level
probes in good working condition, and
(5) turning the agitator on in the bulk
tank only after it is covered with milk.
(If further information is desired on
this subject, address your inquiry to
bers of Commerce, the population o'
Florida is scheduled for a substantial
increase in the future. This, of course,
means the market for dairy products
increases, and, in turn, the market
for Citrus Pulp increases. In short,
the Dairy Industry and the Citrus
Pulp Industry have been engaged in
a common cause. The Citrus Pulp
Industry is constantly striving to pro-
duce a better product. We feel that
Citrus Pulp has been accepted by the
Florida Dairy Industry to the extent
where it has become a common de-
nominator in every feeding program.

Causes of Subnormal Butterfat Condition
And Suggestions for Its Correction
From Talks at 1958 Annual
Florida Dairy Field Day
By: DR. R. B. DECKER and WALTER A. KRIENKE
University of Florida Agricultural Experiment Station
The problems of subnormal butterfat and of low solids-not-fat are being
dealt with by the staff of the Department of Dairy Science in cooperation
with the Agricultural Extension Service, the Chief Dairy Supervisor of the
State Department of Agriculture and several cooperating dairymen. These
problems are separate as to causes and are entirely independent of each
other, although they can occur at the same time in milk of a single cow or
of a herd.

Identical Twin Calves
Seek Identical Twin Calves for
Study at Experiment Stations
Identical twin calves are being
sought by the Department of Veterin-
ary Science of the Florida Agricul-
tural Experiment Station, Gainesville,
for use in research.
Dr. W. R. Pritchard, head of the
department, says any cattleman or
farmer within a 250-mile radius of
Gainesville who has twin calves sus-
pected of being identical twins should
notify him at once if he will sell them.
He stresses the importance of getting
the calves to Gainesville within three
or four days of birth so they can be
reared free of parasites.
Either purebred or grade animals
are acceptable, as are any breeds, al-
though dairy breeds are preferred.
A fair price will be paid for the
animals. No particular individual will
gain as a result of their purchase, as
the project in which the calves are
used will be of benefit to all livestock
by rainfall that leached the dead
grasses. Milk from cows on one pas-
ture soon decreased in butterfat tests.
Addition of some baled hay corrected
the condition in about two weeks.
Soon after the Dairy Research Unit
at the Florida Agricultural Experi-
ment Station was established, con-
trolled feeding trials were begun to
explore fully causes and methods of
correcting low fat conditions. Experi-
mental rations were patterned after
those observed in the earlier surveys.

Welkener and Dinsmore Dairy Farms. It was an all day affair in which mem-
bers judged classes of heifers and cows and gave written and oral reasons
on four of the classes. Rules and procedures for this contest was the same
as for the National Contest.
The 4-H'ers spent a full day of
judging and giving reasons. To give
reasons on a class of dairy cattle the
youngster must remember the ani-
mals and be able to tell why he placed
one animal over the other without
looking at notes. The contestants must
not only be good in their knowledge
of good dairy type, but have the
ability to correctly evaluate the strong
and weak points of each animal. They
must also be able to present the rea-
sons clearly with logical explanations
for their decisions. The pressure of
remembering the animals, to think on
one's feet and clearly express the
points on which the decisions were
made is not an easy task.
Additional training will be given
the team members by their agents and
by T. W. Sparks, Assistant Extension
Dairyman, who will coach the team
for the national contest.
Plans are being made to leave Flor-
ida several days before the national
contest for practice judging at the
Mid-South Fair in Memphis, Tennes-
see and for other practice sessions at
well-known herds to be visited en-
route to Waterloo.
Other contestants who were in the
top 14 of all the 4-H members in the
state were: Tommy Gomber, Sarasota
County; David Harrell, Duval County:
Gail Williams, Polk County; Charles
Chason, Duval County; Jeanette
Foote, Orange County; Graham
Hayes, Palm Beach County; Paul
Dixon, Marion County; Johnny Kay-
lor, Polk County; Willis Tate, Jr.,
The team members were presented
beautiful 4-H jackets which had the
inscription "1958 Florida 4-H Dairy
Cattle Judging Team" and were do-
nated by the Florida Power Corpora-
tion of St. Petersburg.
Sponsors for the teams trips to the
national contest have been the Flor-
ida Dairy Association, the Florida
Jersey and Guernsey Cattle Clubs,
the Florida Times-Union and the
State Department of Agriculture.

HOLSTEIN CATTLE CLUB NEWS
Florida Holsteins Set New Records
A registered Holstein cow owned by the Florida Agricultural Experi-
ment Station of Gainesville has shattered an all-time Florida production
record on Advanced Registry Test. Hickoryvale Admiral Lana 3705298 VG
totalled 13,959 lbs. of milk and 505 lbs. of butterfat in 305 days, 263 days of
which she was in calf. This sets a new high in "butterfat" for Fla. Jr. 4-year-
olds milked two times daily in the Ten-Months' Division of the AR Program.
"Lana" is one of several Maryland Holsteins which provided the foundation
of the Herd at the Experiment Station in 1955. She was bred by Page I. Ifert,
Middletown, Maryland and is the daughter of Helengeorge Master Admiral-
A Gold Medal Sire.
Another cow owned by the Experiment Station, Gaymont Admiral Julia,
has also completed a testing period starting at the age of two years and 11
months and milked twice daily for 305 days. She produced 15,248 lbs. of
milk and 613 lbs. of butterfat on the Advanced Registry Test.
A registered Holstein cow owned by A. J. Rusterholz, Jr., Apopka, has
established a new high for mature Holsteins milked twice daily in the Herd
Improvement Registry test. Linda Sunny Glen Supreme 3849792 produced
18,067 lbs. of milk and 636 lbs. of butterfat in her 365-day production period.
She was bred in Finch, Ontario, Canada and is the daughter of Goodyear
Illmeracme Supreme 173636 CHB.
The Herd Improvement Registry Program, commonly referred to as HIR,
has been in continuous operation since 1928. It provides individual lactation
and lifetime records on every cow in participating registered Holstein herds.

Discount In Registration Fees
Voted for Members of State Groups
One of the actions of the 73rd An-
nual Convention of the Holstein-Frie-
sian Association of America in June
was the adoption of a new schedule
of fees for the registration and trans-
fer of purebred Holstein cattle. This
new schedule becomes effective No-
vember 1, 1958 and increases the pen-
alty for tardy filing of applications
for both registry and transfer.
The plan includes a discount for
Holstein breeders holding member-
ship in one of the 48 state Holstein
organizations as well as the National
Association who register calves at
early ages. Formerly the dual mem-
bership discount was applied only to
transfer fees. Since animals registered
greatly outnumbered those transfer-
red, the change is expected to attract
many new members to the state
American Holstein Cows
Are Thriving in Israel
The Holstein cow is milking her
way to new popularity in Israel ac-
cording to Dr. Solomon Bloom of the
Agricultural Research Station at Re-
hovot. Dr. Bloom in a recent report
points out that dairying is on the
upswing throughout Israel and Hol-
steins have become the "breed of
choice" in Israel's semi-tropical con-
ditions. Herds are thriving from the
Galilee down to the Southern desert
where the biblical Abraham tended
his flocks, land which had produced
almost nothing for 2000 years.
Holsteins, many of them descend-
ants of animals imported from this
country, are playing a major role in
the development of this new dairy
area with some of the black and white
herds averaging well over 12,000 lbs.
of milk per cow per year.

41 Areas Report Milk Prices As High
Or Higher Than Florida's Price of 27c
(Many with Less Cream Content than Florida Milk)
July milk price reports of the U. S. Department of Agriculture and other
sources as shown on the accompanying table disclose that the retail price of
pasteurized home-delivered milk in 41 cities was as high or higher than the
270 price which prevails in most of Florida.
Twenty-three cities had a price
ranging from 3 to 43 a quart higher
than the Florida prevailing price of
The average price for Florida of
27.50 compares favorably with the
27.10 average for the 70 cities of
other states included in the table.
Florida's average milk price of 27.50 a
quart for the month of July remained
the same as compared to May as also
did the Class I farm price of milk.
In contrast to this, however, the farm
price of milk in about 160 markets in
early July averaged 180 per hundred-
weight above the June farm price.
This is the equivalent to an increase of
approximately 1%0 per gallon to the
Quality and Cream Content Compared
While the price of a quart of milk
is usually the first consideration of the
consumer, it's just as important that
the quality and cream content of the
milk be compared. Florida milk,
which in most areas tests 4% or higher
in cream, is too often compared in
price only with milk which contains
only from 3.2% to 3.8% cream, and, in
some instances, Florida's 100% Grade
A milk is compared in price with
Grade B milk.
Of the 70 cities with prices and
cream content reported in the accom-
panying table, 33 have milk with less
than 4% cream content.
The average cream test of sales of
all items for 39 Federal Order mar-
kets was 3.75% in May 1958 as com-
pared with 3.79% in May 1957.
The average cream test of receipts
from dairy farms in 64 Federal Order
markets during May was 3.66% as com-
pared with 3.70% in May a year ago
and 3.70% in April.

A Timely and Helpful Program
The Convention Program Commit-
tee, consisting of the President, the
Producer and Distributor Vice Presi-
dents, the Allied Trades President,
the Ladies' Auxiliary President and
the Executive Secretary, planned from
the beginning that the program should
be the best possible and should in-
clude speakers well qualified to give
timely information and advice to the
Florida dairy industry.
The Committee was most fortunate
in being able to carry out these goals
for the convention program.
National Dairy Leaders Speak
Representing the industry nation-
ally were the nation's top leaders in
milk and ice cream distribution-Dick
Werner of the Milk Industry Founda-
tion and Bob North of the Interna-
tional Association of Ice Cream Manu-
facturers. These two speakers, to-
gether with Norman Myrick of New
York and editor of the American
Milk Review magazine, were able to
furnish Florida dairymen an up-to-
date report and analysis of today's
conditions, progress and trends and
needs in the American dairy industry.
Four other out-of-state speakers-
Clayton Rand of Mississippi, Russ
Wilhelm of Toledo, N. D. Smithson
of Atlanta, and George Neely of Phila-
delphia-contributed expert informa-
tion on the important subjects of
"public relations" and of "proper pack-
aging of milk and dairy products."
Florida's Top Dairy Leaders
The Florida Dairy Association for
many years has considered those who
educate and train, supervise, inspect
and regulate the industry as Advisory
Members of the Dairy Association.
These who are so closely associated
with the industry are always invited
and accorded full membership privi-
leges at the meetings and conventions
of the Florida Dairy Association.
Many of this group including the out-
standing leaders attended the 1958
convention and a number of them
were on the official program.
Dr. E. L. Fouts, head of the Uni-
versity of Florida Department of
Dairy Science, and Walter Krienke
of his staff; C. W. Reaves, State Ex-
tension Dairyman, and his assistant,
Howard Young; Dr. Ralph Eastwood,
Extension Specialist in Marketing;
and Dr. Ouida Abbott, recently re-
tired head of the University Depart-
ment of Home Economics Research,
contributed much to interest and prac-
tical value of the program.
Col. Dexter Lowry, administrator
of the Florida Milk Commission, con-
tributed timely information concern-
ing the Commission's program.
Gordon Ellis (Nassau County
Agent) and Tommy Prator were able
to inform dairymen of the value and
importance of the State 4-H Dairy
Shows and the 4-H Dairy Judging
Contests. Tommy Prator recently won
first place in Florida 4-H dairy cattle
judging and was named one of the
four members of the State 4-H Team
which will compete in national judg-
ing contests at Waterloo, Iowa in
Other Important Speakers
Honorable Doyle E. Conner, 1957
Speaker of the House of the Florida
Legislature, was well received in his
dinner address on "The Bright Future
of Florida Agriculture" and Mrs. John
Hood of Hood's Dairy, Bradenton,
with her panel of newspaper men put
on one of the best panel discussions
on "public relations" ever to appear
on a dairy meeting program.
In addition to their worthwhile
business programs, Florida dairy con-
ventions have become well known for
good fellowship and good times and
interesting recreational features. Much
of the credit for this important part
of this year's convention goes to
F.D.A.'s permanent "Master of Cere-
monies," singing and contests, Jack
Dew of Southern Dairies, Jackson-
ville; the Sergeant-at-Arms and dis-
penser of attendance prizes, Jim Jen-
nings; and the officers and members
of the Alligator Club who provided
liberally of their money and their per-
sonal efforts toward the entertainment,
fellowship and recreational features
of the convention.

satisfaction that several members and
their families arrived days early and

The Ladies' Auxiliary of F.D.A. en-
joyed both a record attendance and
one of their finest programs at the
1958 convention. Mrs. Kathryn Casey,
President, with the splendid help of
her local arrangements committee and
Mrs. Marjorie Lay, Secretary, provid-
ed the over 100 ladies with a most
enjoyable and entertaining program.
The program included a "Get Ac-
quainted" Party during the afternoon
of the first day. On the second day
there was a special Ladies' Auxiliary
luncheon, the finest we have ever seen,
which provided a guest speaker on
"nutrition"-Dr. Ouida Abbott of the
University of Florida; a fashion show;
and prizes and favors for all those
Mrs. Jessie Johnson of Tampa, a
past president of the Auxiliary, was
roundly applauded by the group for
the unusual job she did in securing
many of the prizes for the occasion.
Convention Queen Selected
One of the surprises in connection
with the record family attendance at
the convention was the discovery that
13 teenage daughters of members
were adorning the lobbies and meet-

pools. This led the convention com-
mittee to plan a Convention and Dairy

Several groups of the Dairy Indus-
try like to take advantage of the op-
portunity offered at F.D.A. conven-
tions to hold special sessions of their
own organization. Meetings were held
during the F.D.A. 1958 Annual Meet-
ing by (1) the F.D.A. Board of Di-
rectors, (2) The Florida Guernsey Cat-
tle Club, (3) The Florida Assn. of
Milk and Food Sanitarians, and (4) a
State Conference of Milk Producers'
Officers Elected for 1959

of 1958 unless the F.D.A. should be
reorganized before that date.

MILK COMMISSION NEWS
CHANGES MADE IN COMMISSION MEMBERSHIP
Walton Becomes Administrator
About July 15 some significant
changes were made in the administra-
tion and membership of the Florida
The milk producer member of the
Commission, Wilbur Casey of Clear-
water, whose partial term expired, was
replaced by Jim Acree, Jacksonville
Dexter Lowry, who had served
about a year as administrator, resigned
his post and was replaced by Howard
Walton of Miami, who had served
for some three years as a consumer
representative on the Commission.
Walton was replaced as a member
of the Commission by Mrs. Charlotte
Tomlinson of Lake Wales.
Walton, who had served as repre-
sentative of the Communications
Workers of America local union in
Miami for several years, said he had
resigned this post in order to take the
Milk Commission assignment. He is
considered business-like and efficient
and says he had some experience in
dairying as a boy on his father's small
dairy farm in Dade County.
Mrs. Tomlinson is the wife of Dr.
J. P. Tomlinson, Jr., an M. D. of
Lake Wales, and has a married daugh-
ter and a son who is a medical stu-
dent. The Tomlinsons have lived in
the Lake Wales area for many years
and own a cattle ranch near LaBelle,
August Meeting in Tallahassee
The August meeting of the Milk
Commission has been announced for
August 20-21, Wednesday and Thurs-
day, in Tallahassee.
Among the subjects to be consider-
ed at the August meeting are two
matters postponed from the July
meeting. These am (1)~ An order set-
ting hauling charge wbich may be
made by distributors qq their pro-
ducer's milk which the distributor
hauls from farna to plant and handling
charges which distributors Xqay make
on their own base produoe's milk
which is diverted or trainfeed to
some other plant; (2) f.posed
changes in the classification and regu-
lations of military milk.
Commission Wins Court Decisions
But Faces Supreme Court Appeals
The circuit court in Tallahassee is-
sued a ruling on two cases in which
distributors had challenged the legal-
ity of certain Commission orders, hold-
ing that the orders are legal. The
distributors involved in the cases have
indicated that appeals will be made to
the State Supreme Court.
One of these cases challenged the
legality of the Commission's order
setting up a producer base plan
throughout the state and the other
challenged the Commission's author-
ity to set the price of Class II and
Class III milk.
A third case which was originally
brought and argued along "with the
two mentioned above has not been
decided by the court. In this case the
right of the Commission is challenged
to require a distributor to purchase
all milk produced by his base pro-
ducers and pay prices determined by
Pensacola Area Withdraws
From Commission Control
During their May meeting in Talla-
hassee, the Milk Commission received
a petition from producers of the Pen-
sacola marketing area to withdraw its
jurisdiction over that area. After con-
siderable investigation of the petition
by deputies of the Commission and
some of the members of the Commis-
sion, the petition was recognized by
the Commission at its June meeting.
They removed from the Commis-
sion's control the counties of Escam-
bia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton
and Holmes, making a total of 16
counties now without Milk Commis-
sion jurisdiction. The Southeast Flor-
ida Federal Market Order covers 10
counties and Indian River County is
under neither the Federal Order or
the Milk Commission. These 16 coun-
ties represent approximately 50% of
total milk production and milk sales
in the state of Florida.
Jax. Store Milk Prices
Steady Under M.C. Order
The serious milk price cutting situ-
ation which developed in the Jackson-
ville area a few months ago through
"tie-in" and "loss leader" sales appears
to be completely stabilized by the
Milk Commission's order which de-
clared the "tie-in-sales" of milk or
"limiting the quantity" of milk a cus-
tomer could buy, as illegal.
Open New Milk Stores
In Jacksonville Area
The dairy owned and operated
"milk store" method of reaching milk
consumers, which has spread rapidly
in recent months in central, west
coast and Miami areas, is apparently
about to move into the Jacksonville
The Skinners' Dairy opened a dairy
store across town from its plant a few
weeks ago because of Cash and Carry
and store competition and a few days
ago, the Meadowbrook Farms Dairy
opened an attractive new drive-in
dairy store on the main highway South
on the Southside of the City.

HERD IMPROVEMENT TEST
The registered Jersey herd of the
Gulf Wind Dairy, owned and operated
by the Gombers brothers of Venice,
Florida, recently completed a 12-

ment Registry. The 43 Jerseys pro-
duced an average of 9,003 lbs. of milk
containing 464 lbs. butterfat per cow.

F.D.A. Directors Oppose
A.D.A. of Florida
At a July 28 meeting in Tampa,
producer and distributor directors of
the Florida Dairy Association in joint
session voted unanimously that they
do not favor the organization of a
unit of the American Dairy Associa-
tion in Florida at this time. Reasons
for this action were:
(a) Florida is only a fluid milk
producing state while American Dairy
Association spends its funds for pro-
motion of all dairy products.
(b) Florida needs most a "fluid
milk" promotion such as extension of
"Dairy Council Programs" throughout
the state with possibly additional
"fluid milk" promotion and advertis-
ing through a strictly Florida pro-
gram planned and financed by both
"producers and distributors" rather
than by producers alone as A.D.A.
(c) The cost of A.D.A. to Florida
producers would be 20 per 100 lbs.
on all milk produced. This is 1/5-cent
per gallon .. 2 times the amount pro-
ducers now pay to the Florida Milk
Commission (1/10-cent per gallon,
Class I) . and .. 5 times the pro-
ducer membership rate (40 per 100
gallons, Class I milk) for the Florida

counties established May 1, 1958, by
the Florida Livestock Board.
This action ties in with the screw-
worm quarantine line being establish-
ed along the Louisiana-Mississippi
border by Federal authorities co-oper-
ating with regulatory agencies of those
states. Inspection stations along that
line are established to prevent trans-
port of screwworm-infested animals
from the Southwest into Southeastern
territory. Objective of the Florida line
is to prevent movement of any infest-
ed animals north of State Highway
No. 40 which runs east and west,
Operation of the two quarantine
lines is necessary to success of the
Eradication Program, the directors
said. The program is increasing its
dispersal of millions of sterile flies over
Florida and southern Georgia to pro-
gressively reduce, and eventually wipe
out, the entire native population of
the costly pest.

How would you feed a BEST OF BREED?
Milk production per cow increased 20%
during the last 10 years on a national basis,
and is still gaining according to a report by
the United States Department of Agricul-
ture. This production increase is due in part
to increased feeding of concentrates, the re-
port states. Because concentrates for use
in dairy rations are in heavy demand these
facts about Florida Citrus Pulp are impor-
tant to dairymen interested in getting top
milk production on a year-round basis.
Florida Citrus Pulp is a proven concen-
trate made from the peel and pulp of fresh
citrus fruit. Feed trials show that, from
an energy standpoint, a hay-citrus pulp mix-
ture equals a hay-grain mixture, and when
fed as a carbohydrate concentrate, Florida
Citrus Pulp can replace up to 50% of grain
Morrison's tabulation on total digestible
nutrient content lists dried Citrus Pulp
higher (74.9%) than either ground oats
(68.5%) or beet pulp (67.8%). Feeding and
production tests show milk stimulating fac-
tors and important trace elements to be pres-
ent in Florida Citrus Pulp.
Available on a year-round basis, Florida
Citrus Pulp requires no special equipment
for handling or storing, and can be fed sat-
isfactorily in its dry form.

Safe Surge Milking gets the milk out of

After that, the Surge ELECTROBRAIN supplies
