c GRADING CREAM. " Hoard's Dairyman " writes :'—" Ever since the advent of the farm separator the agitation for cream grading has- been going on. Many individual creair_orie3 have attempted at different times to put a system of grading in force. A few have been successful, but mist of these attempts have failed. The failure has ÜBually buen the reeult of commercial competition. Compatit.ors opera, ling in the same field were willing to accept . any cream, regardless of quality, for the sake of large volume of business. Every ' creamery company has pra.tioiliy admitted the necessity of buying cream on grade, but not being able to control the strife of busi. ness, they have been impotent in doing anything towards accomplishing the desired end. " Several States have at last taken hold of the subjact, with tho view of bringing all of the creameries in line, and establishing _ gradiiig system, £n order to lend support, to this movement "on. the part of tha State ' officials, tho cieamery owners and manape'B ara organising volur-tary associations to hen to bring all creameries within their territory inline. It now looks .as if tho long-needed' work of grading would be accomplished. It I will take the united effort of the (state foroes' and the oieameries to pull overyone into I line. j 1 " The dairymen who wmfc their Industry to go forward should lend support of this movement. It is to their interest to putro I nisa the cieamery Ibat wiillino up with the': State officials, and make the uream grading ' plan a suocoss. It is only the best butler . that does not meet severe competition in ; large oentral markets. Tho best butter can. I not he made from inferior orcam. Let every dairy farmer who has cream to sell for butter-making investigate the attitude of the creamery on this subject, and tell the managers that he expects them to get in line and grade all cream. He canoot afford to sell good cream to a concern that makes inferior ' hutter, for it will pull down his returns," I
