Davis, H.P. (1925). Selection, breeding, methods means more milk (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 31)
Milk good cows. It pays if you know how. Good dairy cows will always make money. Scrub, poor, or common cows never bring a good profit and usually cause a loss. Why waste feed and labor on inefficient producers, the kind that never make a satisfactory profit? Join a cow testing association. Let the tester keep books on your cows and let the milk scale and the milk sheet point out the money makers. Improvement comes only from selection and breeding.
