MILK IS CALLED PERFECT FOOD OF MOTHER NATURE Spotlighting the essential nature of dairy foods in sound nutritious diets tor human beings Ms the 1946 Dairy Month theme "First in Foods." . . • "This theme was selected," said C. R. Scho'by, chairman of the low* State Dairy Commission, "because milk, the source of all dairy products, is considered 'Nature's most nearly perfect food.' "Milk 'has earned this 'most nearly'perlect' rating." he continued, ".because: 1. It is the first food in life. 2. It is first in 'food value. ,'i. It is the first food for all ages." Milk is the first food that man •takes after his birth and usually Jor many weeks it is his principal . sustenance. Milk is an important food for all age groups, but it is •indispensable to the infant because it contains virtually all the nutrients needed by the new born baby. Milk contains proteins, fat, sugar, minerals, and'vitamins. The proteins are of the highest quality; the fat is palatable and easily digested; the sugar supplies energy: the minerals, calcium and phosphorus, are .supplied abundantly by milk: «nd milk contains some of '. all known vitamins. MUk is first in food value because it provides a larger number of nutrients than does 'any other food. Milk provides minerals, vitamins and proteins in abundance. Milk is the first food for all ages because the human body never outgrows the need for this nourishing food. QUARTONNAMEA GUERNSEY BYWORD The name of Judge W. B. Quarton still remains in the memory of man—especially in the memory of those men who are interested and active in Guernsey cattle I breeding and improved dairying. I Judge Quarton. who died some years ago after a long and active life in both the practice of law and in the raising of dairy cattle standards, was not only an owner of Guernsey cattle and widely known as a producer of some of the nation's top Guernsey prize winners, tout 'he also served as president of the Iowa Guernsey Breeders Association and Western Guernsey Breeders Association, while engaged in the practice of law in Al- sona. •He was a longtime member of the American Guernsey Cattle Club, also. Judge Quarton did as much, perhaps, as any man in bygone days, to encourage the introduction of better breeding in dairy cattle, culling of poor producers, and the development of all nhases of dairying as a source of farm income. Today, Kossuth county is unconsciously reaping the benefits of Judge Quarton's sago advice and exmple in building better dairy 'herds, and some of the ideas hs presented years a?o are accepted .facts today by all leading dairymen. BUILDS A HERD OF 18 IN TEN YEARS It takes time to build a good dairy herd, any dairyman will tell you that. And when a young dairy- .man can 'build a fine Guernsey herd, with some 18 registered females, in the-space of 10 years, ho is using his head as well as his hands. Eldon Shaw, the young dairy herd owner we speak of, began his herd in 4 J H club 'work on a small scale, and today owns a herd that holds a large promise for the future, as a result of careful attention to breeding. Eldon farms 170 acres — the "Lone Spruce Farm" near Whittemore. In addition to his ability at raising good cows, he knows good cows apparently, for nt the Guernsey picnic held on the W. H. Bosworth farm recently, he took frist place in Guernsey classification. WHY MONTH or JUNE? For nine years. June has been yset aside as Dairy Month. Why? BecaUse dairy foods are usually most plentiful in June. This is Dairy month for the tenth time, but «!! dairy foods are not plentiful now. BMtter.and cheese are scarce 'because the dairy industry has not. yet been able to correct •production difficulties caused by the wars' hampering restrictions. NOW!
