This study presents the rapid progress made by the dairy industry in Florida over the past decades after the first State Law dealing specifically with this industry was passed in 1929. The Florida Jersey Cattle Club and the Florida Guernsey Cattle Club have provided dairymen with the opportunity to establish pure bred herds of both breeds containing the best blood lines. The advantage of Florida's mild climate, and long growing seasons of grass and forage crops suitable for dairy animals have made possible for dairymen to find ways of making dairying a profitable industry in Florida.

Florida Dairying Shows Progress*


Dairying in Florida has made rapid strides during the past
few vears; in fact, those who have not been in clusi contact
with th' industry cannot realize the changes tiat have taken
In 161) there wer.. very few dairy coIws in the S:lte. By
1910 there wcis some interest in dairying in the larger cit:.e of
the Sitae and about 1911 or ]912 the flrSt city ordinance regu-
latirnr ir prorditctiun and handling of fluid milk was put in
force, The fir Sti e411' TAw dI-';li11L sEpc'itik'ally with 1"'I dairy
industry was passed in t92l'.

In 1920 there were about 70 000 dairy cows in the State
with a production of about 12,00,000 gallons per year,
In 1930 there were about 75,00A dairy cows in the State
with a production of about 25,000,000 gallons per year.
In 194 there were about l10.000 cows with a production
of 57.750,000 gallons of milk for the year. Since 1940 there has
been an increase in the number of cows milked. hence an
increase in the amount of milk produced.
Prior to 1930 some dairymen and milk plant operators
imported large quantities of fluid milk and cream. Since 1932
very little fluid mnilk has been imported into the State. It is
true that large quantities of sweet cream are imported each
year; the amount required depends somewhat upon our winter
tourist business.
There are approximately 1200 commercial dairies in Flor-
idae CoITmercial dairies mean those milking six or more cows.
In these dairies there are 85000 to 90.000 cows, a little more
than half the total number of dairy cows in the State.
Of the 1200 dairymen about two-thirds of them are whole
sale produces, and one-third are producer-distributors. There
are about 200 dairymen who operate pasteuriers,

Florida cannot yet be claaed as a dairy products manu-
facturing State, though some surplus mik is used to make
condensed milk from time to time at plants in Miami and
Marianun No cheddar cheese is manufactured in Florida,
though some soft cheeses are made. The only by-product
made in any considerable quantities in Florida at present are
chocolate milk, buttermilk, cottage cheese and ice cream
Nearly all dairy cattle breeds are found in Florida. How-
ever, the major breeds at present are Guernsey and Jersey,
There are a few Holstein, Brown Swi~se and Ayrshires.
There is a wide variation in the size of the herds, We
have quite a number of small herds, from 6 to 20 animals. A
large number range from 20 to 60 animals, some from 100 to
500 and a few herds of 00 to 1500.
Milk production per cow varies here just as it does in every
other state, The Florida average is perhaps about 2% gallons
per cow per day. However, a number of Florida dairymen av-
erage 3 gallons for a good part of the year. Dairymen who do

not average 2 gallons or more will not find dairying profitable.
Prior to 1930 very few made any effort to raise the heifer
calves dropped in their herds. Milk prices were high and there
was very little surplus, hence no calves were raised. During
the last few year a great many of the dairymen in different
parts of Florida have been buying good bulls and have been
doing a good job of improving their herds by raLsLng heifer
calves from the better cows in their herds.
ThU Florida Jersey Cattle Club and the Florida Guernsey
Catlle Club have far several years past been holding annual
sales. Both male and female animals have been sold, and as
a result the State is rather well supplied with pure bred
breeding stock of both Jersey and Guernsey cattle. A number
of pure bred herds of both breeds have been established, and
they contain some of the best blood lines that can be obtained
These facts are shown in another way that will surprise a
lot of dairymen in other starts. Note the breeding of some
of the gIod sires and damsi shown on succeeding pages.
We give below official records showing that cows In Flor-
ida are making very salisfactory production records.

Dairying in Florida has made gratL progress during the
last twenty years; but what prugrtss are we likely to make in
the next twenty years? Additional pure bred herds of the
different dairy breeds will probably be established; this, how-
ever desirable. will not in itself make dairying a profitable
industry. Unless dairymen in all parts of the State learn how
to produce and distribute milk more cheaply in the future
than they have in the past dairying in Florida will not be
the industry that it cnuld be.
Flirrirla's mild climate and long growing season should be
an advantage in the growing of grass and forage crops suit-
able for dairy artnimals. The long growing season should give
more days of grazing. With more days of good grazing during
the year, less grain will be required for maintenance and
milk production. Grain feeding for milk production is Tmor
expensive than good pasturage and fora.e e rolps, Therefore.
the more grass and Eura~ge crops use, the cheaper will be the
cust of producing a gallon rif lmJlk, So, let us take advantage of
our mild climate andI long growing season by making grass
and forage crops our main source of feed for our milk supply.
Grass and forage crops should supply nearly three-fourths of
zhe feed required for our dairy herds.
Yes. T know the dairyman will say. "When I reduce the
grair' feed, milk production gues downn" But, has this dairy-
manl made the necessary effort to supply the right kind and
quantity of pasturokeC and forage crops to replace the gl'ai
railloi so that milk production will hot go down?
Perhaps we should not place so much emphasis on milk
production per cow, OF course we should use good cows that
are capable of giving a large Hurnount of milk when fed heavily,
but these same c v"ws will giv a creditable amount of milk at
n Ilwer cost per gallon if fed more grass and forage crops and
less gl'ain, For example. a dairyman may get 601 gallons of
milk a day from 20 cows by It~fdinrg a heavy grain ration.
Would it not 1I more profitable for this dairyman to produce
the 60 YaHllons of milk by feeding 25 cows on grass and forage
crops and a small amount of grain? This Idea has been proven

a part of the year but very little pasture the remainder of the
year. In Florila pastures should be planted and maintained
during the greater part of the year.
A gcod pasture is more than just so many acres of land
for the cows to travel over. The fewer acres used the btiter,
provided the cows can get an abundance of gimdl nutritious
grass in a couple of hours grating each morning and afternoon.
A good producing cow must have time each day to lie down
to rest and digest her food and at the same time convert a
goodly portion of the feed into milk, The cow that has to
hustle and walk all day to get enough grass to fill her paunch
will not produce very much milk.
The only way to produce cheap milk is by having an
abundance of good nutritious grass for the cows to graze. This
pasture may be a mixture of grasses and one or more legumnies.
When yuu select a pie.' of grirnmd n1 which In plant yoLr
grass sevi, stlrct llh lx-iest land on the farm. A great many
I. nple,. in the past, have had an idea that any land not suitable
for a cultivated crop would be ideal for pasture purposes.
This idea is all wrurig. The better hhe land the fewer acres
will be required to furnish pasture for a given number of cows.
Every dairyman in the Slate of Florida needs a goud per-
manent pasture if he intends to stay in the dairy business. Tlie
cidiry'man who fails to provide a good permanent pasture for
his herd witl find at the end of the year that he has been oper-
ating at a loss rather than at a profit. We cannot over-empha,
size the importance of good permanent pastures.
It is a well-established fact that green grass and an abun-
dance of sunshine increase- the vitamin content of milk.

Florida dairy herds are practically free of T.B. and Bang's.
Dr J, V. Knapp. State Veterinarian, reports for the fiscal year
ending June 30. 1941, that the percentage of tuberculosis in
dairy herds was only ,0 per cent. Far the United States dur-
ing the same period the percentage was .3 per cent.

The percentage on( Bang's disease far the s me period was
-9 per cent, covering 15,665 herds comprising 403,772 animals.
Far the United States the percentage was 2.4 per cent.

The above figures speak well for Florida milk producers.
They show that the milk producers are cv-pcrating with State
officials in an effort to give the public the very best milk pos-

The citizens of Florida should be proud that their supply
of milk comes from such healthy animals. It is doubtful if any
other State has such a good supply of milk.

Tables No. 4 and No. 5 give a good picture of the growth
of the dairy industry in the Miami area from January 1, 1932,
to December 31, 1941.

There is not much that need be said about these figures,
as they show very clearly the development of the industry.
They show that the growth has been fairly constant each

If figures were available for other sections of Florida, they
would show about the same percentage of growth from year
to year. In other words, the dairy industry of Florida has
during the past ten years made a very marked growth both
in the number of cows and in the gallonage of milk produced,

Florida Has an Abundant Supply of Good Water.

Our climate affords the opportunity of washing
the barn and milk hnuse with water once or twice each
day, thereby keeping down all udors.
