There are few branches of agriculture that take as little fertility from the soil and at the same time returns a profit to the farmer as dairy farming. While teaching dairy farming is not the purpose of this bulletin, yet it is the basis of the lessons presented. These lessons present the subject from the standpoint of clean milk production, milk products, milk as a food in the home and as a supplement to other food materials, and have been prepared to give to the organized school work in elementary agriculture additional impetus in dairying, to provide material for instruction that is within the range of elementary pupils, and to furnish a topic for home projects that may be worked out with profit to every community and with real educational value to the pupils concerned.
