MONEY-MAKING ^ MACHINES DE LAVAL Separators and Milkers The dairy cow is not only our great- eit producer of wealth, but De Laval Separators and Milkers are the best money-making machines any milk or cream producer can own. It is not unusual for a De Laval Separator or Milker to earn its own payments and pay for itself in its first year of use; that's equal to 100% return on the investment. And these machines will continue to earn at such a rate for many years. Thousands of De Laval Separators in use today have given 20 to 30 and even more years of service; and many De Laval Milkers first placed on the market 19 years ago are still in use.
