State Butter Shows in Denmark.

«. In a report just issued, Mr Inglis, the Consul at Copenhagen, who has already published an interesting report on dairy farms in Denmark, describes a new system of State butter shows recently organised in that country by the director of the dairy section of the Danish Agricultural Department. The fault of the old shows was that they were not of much practical benefit in encouraging the production of first-class butter, or in effectually tracing faults of manufacture to their .-source. The newplan has the support of a large i number of dairies, dairy experts,and leading butter merchants all over the country, j Its principal features are :—l. A con^' tinuous butter show'at the expense of the •State during several months in each year. 2. Here fresh samples of butter will be received every fourteen days,- the judges | decision to be given on the butter as received and its condition at thei end of -fourteen days. Thus there will be two distinct testings, not only of quality, but also of weight. 3. The samples are to be sent immediately on the receipt of a letter or telegram, so that the dairymen will not be able to make a special cask for exhibition, and the samples are to be repeated as often as re-1 quired. 4. Competing dairies must send in a return of the feeding and system generally followed on the farm, with special; reference to the week during which the samples are sent in. At present the number of dairies entered is 360. Nine judges have been selected, and these act in groups of three each, each group recording an independent opinion on each which is checked by those of the other two groups. Each group will consist of two butter merchants and one dairy expert. The exhibitors are paid the usual mwket rate for their exhibits

The show will be held at intervals of a J fortnight during err 1"-4" nmnthn of the year and the Governl: > :■: /:w.\' (iurii'ir ihcurrent financial year is £135 U. ,
