Test in Agricultural Class.

On a recent test given the agriculture class of Ashwood school, the question was asked, How would you build and conduct a dairy?

This answer was given by a boy aged 14: "How I would build and conduct a dairy? I would build a cement building with lumber walls that might be opened from every side, so as to let in plenty of sunlight and fresh air. Then I would have the whole building inside and out whitewashed. Every day I would have the walls dusted and the floors scoured. I would keep only thoroughbred Jerseys , keeping a butter record for each cow, so if she did not bring enough profit, I could sell her.

In caring for the cows, I would provide good pastures, with plenty of clean water. Provide good shelter, with the proper food.

Before milking, I would brush the cow all over and wash her udder. And milk at regular times each day.

For the milkmen [I] would employ only clean, healthy men and instruct them to treat the cows kindly.

The milk vessels should be of the sanitary type. Before using they should be scalded. Afterwards I would first use cold water, then scald them and place in the sun. I would keep the milk and butter in a cool, sanitary place safe from dust and flies: for milk is one of the surest "germ carriers."
