That dairy farming is a profitable business is fully attested by its unprecedented growth during the past decade and a half. No other branch of agriculture has ever witnessed such rapid development in a similar period of time. I ts growth has not been confined to any particular section or sections of the country, but has been noticeable in all sections. The profits that have prompted this rapid and general expansion of the dairy business have been derived from two sources: (i) direct profits realized from the sale of milk, cream, butter and cheese; (2) indirect profits accruing from an increased fertility of the land and the consequent increased productiveness of the same. Direct Profits. It is pretty well conceded that in general dairy cows yield greater returns for feed consumed than either swine, sheep or beef animals. A good cow will yield not less than 300 pounds of butter a year, which, at 25 cents per pound, is worth $75.
