Some "Facts and Fan'' About Cows and Milk June has alw;tyii bpcn a popular month, but nover more BO than since It became desll^atcd as June I>alry Month. With all the enthUfr,- 'lasm characterlBt'lc of baseball fans, dairy spokenmen declare thai June ha* iievtfr lopked better than nhe docfl in 1962. To those vho comment that June Dairy Month !•• "a comparatively modern ajlpelldtibn, these same spokesmen point out that the nan^' "June" itself dales back only a couple ol centuries. The cow, -.i.s an adjunct to good living, far antedates "June".

Tho virtues of the cow; our favorite mammal! * * * IN CONNECTION with the antiquity of domesticated cattle it is interesting to not« that the dairy cow belongs to one of the first families in America. AlthouBh none of her ancestors came over on the Mayflower, the first of them arrived at Jamestown Colony in 1611 and at Plymouth Colony a few years later in 1624. "Moat consumers know of milk 03 nature's most perfect food," it was stated, "but there are many other less-known facts about it. For example, although milk is a liquid, it has less water content most vegetables and less th.nn a third more than beefsteak. Fluid milk and cream consumption in 1961 wa-s approxlniately 60,050 billion pounds, an amount which—If lined up in quart containers—would stretch around -the world fourteen limes.

( U. S. Key to World Milk Life Line "Dairy foods comprise almost 30 per cent of the food solids con.sum- ed by the .ivcra«e American family. Yet the cost of dairy foods absorbs only 15 per cent of the family food dollar," John Brockway. Iowa Dairj' Month chairman, said today. "In view of this." Brockway said, "it is e .ii .sential that the manufacture! s of dairy proces.-iing macliin- ery, equipment and supplies .aid the dairy and the farmer in main- taininK tho 'world milk life line.' This provides a safe find ample supply of dair>' foods to the population of America and the free world." he said. Brockway pointed out that, "the milk life line is in some respects like a chain, with each link constituting a different phas* of opera- lion. These link."! are milk producing farms—transportation to plant — processing pl.ants — manufacturers of plant machinery, equipment and supplies—deliverj' and billions of consumers." -.y. :f :'.! "AS VOL' CA.N readily understand," he continued, "each link is an intricate part of the vital milk chain and if one or more of these links fails to function properly, or breaks down, the whole chain col-, the flow of dairy products is interrupted and since milk produced by the cow cannot tie regulii- ted—lurned on and off- the milk backs up on the farm." * » * "IT Ifi EASV to see."

Only by efforts all alone the lino can the Dairy Industry hope to provide a greater volume ot dairy foods for our civilian population, our armed forces, and the free world alike." # .? * "CNDER PKESENT conditions of our stepped-up defense program, with critical materials — stainless steel, copper, tin and aluminum so vital in the manufacturing of the hundreds of dairy items, being diverted to the production of arms, .and equipment for our armed forces, a tremendous problem has posed Itself On the steps of the dairy indUBtr>-. This problem is that of iteing able to meet our own requirements (domestic and militarj-> for dairy foods, and to help the other nations of the free world to produce and process their own milk." "It is reassuring to know," he said, "that the manufacturers of the hundreds of essential pieces of machlnerj', equipment and supplies are aware ot this fact and are endeavoring in every wap possible under present conditions, to maintain sufficient processing equipment and supplies to help the Dairy Industry insure a steady flow ot milk and other dairy foods of high quality for America .and the other free nations of the world, and thus help to preserve 'the world milk life lino'." Did you know that a study of convalescent children's appetites concludes that a 7-ounce glass of milk an hour before each meal does not interfere with mealtime eaUng? S. O. Lunch County Dairy Month Head state dairy month headquarters has announced the appointment of S. O. Lundy, of Walllngford, Emmet county chairman of the 16th annual observance of June dair/ month. "Dairy month has played an important role through the years in improving our local and natlona!, health by causing more Americana to possess the Important facts' of fsDund nutrition," Lundy said. "Each year nutrition science confirms with more facts the life- giving values of dair>- food.s to all of us. * » * "Ol'H COMMUNITY .will join otlier.s all over the United States in stimulating local observance.'^ which will acquaint the public with nutiition fUrts upon whicll physiciiin.", nutritiimistc and .•scientists agree." Lundy ixpiained that June is th-time when cow's milk is most plentiful and is the richest, making milk and miiK products sUch as ice cream, butter, cheese and evaporated milk tops In taste and best in nutritional qualities. "Milk does more for the human body than any other known food and does it more cheaply," Lundy said. • * • "BBSKABCH HAS. shown that older persons need to consume the same amounts of daio' foods as do growing children," Lundy add- pd. '"The nutrients, in dairy foods so needed for growing-bodies "are Just as necessary to fight the body deterioration of later years. "With thU in mind, "Lundy said, "the dairy Industry chose "Good Eating for All Ages' as the 1S5:> June Dairy Month campaign theme." The shells of birds' eggs arc made mostly of carbonate of lime. Esthcnille, Iowa, Daily News Tup.s., June 17, 1952 8 Slogan for Dairy Monlli Is Announced "The 1952 June Dairy Month slogan "Good Eating For All Ages" | is backed by sound scientific knowledge," S. O. Lundy. Emmet county chairman of the June Dairy Mon- J th campaign, said today "Nutrition research offers furth- | er proof each day of the import- 1 anca of dairy foods in everyone's i diet." he said. 1 "For example." Ltmdy commtr-t- • ed, "recent evidence shows that older folks, particuarly 45 and over, l need dairy foods just as do infants and growing children. The healthy growth ot children is dependent upon their getting a sound supply of the nutrients easentlal to good nutrition. The older folks need a similar supply to fight lK >dy deterioration. "Fortunately," Lundy said, "milk and milk fooda are still the most economical source of these nutrients. These nutrients are (1> calcium for strengthening bones and teeth, (2) proteins for aiding growth and maintaining muscle tissue, (3) riboflavin for promoting growth and better health, and (4) vitamin A for protecting health and increasing the vitality ot tissues." Dairy foods supply three-fourths of all the calcium, approximately one-fourth of all the proteins, nearly half of the riboflavin, and over 18 per cent of the vitamin A consumed in the American diet.
