Abstract

The dairy cow is a more efficient producer of human food than any other domestic animal. For each 100 pounds of digestible nutrients consumed she returns in her milk more than six times as much edible solids as the beef steer or mutton sheep yields in its carcass. As agriculture becomes more intensive the farmer has to pay greater attention to economy of production, so it is becoming necessary for him not only to use the most economical type of animal but also to have it producing to the best of his ability.
