Many FSA, families arc beginning Milk And Cream Quality Lowered Undesirable Bacteria Forms In Hor Wcafher; Cooling Is Advised With the first warm days, milk nncl eroam quality will decline as a result of the growth of undesirable bacteria. Miss Cora Lee Colo- nian, county home demonstration ngent, told Mississippi County homemakcrs this week. In answer to inquiries on the necessity of cooling milk and cream, sh c explained that it Is done for the same reason Dial milk and cream utensils arc washed and sterilized. Sterilization discourages bacteria from gelling Into milk or cream in the flriit place, and cooling stops the activities uf those bacteria that find lliplr way into milk and cream. When milk and crcnm arc cooled to at lenst. GOR the multiplication of Ijactcrln Is very greatly retiml- ed. The best cooling- agent to be found on all farms Is water, Miss Coleman pointed out, because It tends to draw the temperature of milk or c'romn lo Its own level. Wa- Ua- is 25 times more effective as a cooling agent than air. The blacksmith usff ' Die \viiler method lo cool his red hot irons. ;An efficient milk cooler can be made by any .Mississippi County farmer with a -few simple tools, according to Miss coleitmn. .A removable pint form can' be Farm Woman's Column tic best wny to extend that cook stove's lease on life, Miss Cora Lee lHimn, county home demonstration «!,'Pi)t. advised Noitli Mississippi County hotnemaker.s this week, is a good old-fashioned cleaning at regular Intervals.

The water used for cooling should be running constantly, if possible. Where this is not l.a'slWe. shc suggested that, It be chanced and stirred often. If running water Is available, the Inlet pipe should be turned down inside the barrel to allow fresh water to come in at the bottom. TJH; overflow pijie should be set Miislitly above the shoulders of the can so that the milk or cream is beneath Hie surface of the writer. Tlie barrel should be placed in the milk house or in some shady spot lank, A cover over the ban-el help.? to keep the water cool, she added, Miss Coleman reminded homemakers lo be sure to cool milk and cream as soon as possible after milking and separating. Uke 94 per cent of the farmers here, Mr. cage was growing com and beans together. So, In order to (jot the crop harvested he combined the corn and beans together, the corn, of course, came out shelled nnd lu the bags with beans. No one wants corn and beans together so the next job was separation, after cotton harvest was over and u little labor was available. Mr. Cagle bought a Eureka spiral feed cleaner and It worked wonders in separating the crop. Not only did It separate corn from $337.50 for the beans alone. Mr. Cagle, two boys and a girl are fanning 200 acres of land this year;' 130 of which is In corn and beans and to be combined and serjniTitPd us he did last year. Mr. Bilbrey and A. C.
