8—Algona Upper Des Moines Tuesday, February 7, 1950 FARM COLUMN The same story Floyd Bode tells about his DeLaval equipment could be told by many, many other Kossuth county dairy farmers. Over the past years more and more farmers in this area have been coming to Bradley Bros, for the full and complete story of De Laval milking equipment— with the result that the list of DeLaval dairymen has increased by leaps and bounds. There must be a reason. Here is a list of farmers in this area who use De Laval equipment sold and installed for them by Bradley Bros: Martin Seiler, Elbert Bros., Wilbert Engholm, Weber Bros., Geo. H. Olson, Carl F. Sallis, Wayne Mann, Julius Becker, James Vipond, H. F. Schulz, Thos. Vipond, Leo Biggins, Victor Applegate, C L. Girres, L. N.

Let us tell you the whole De Laval profit story now, and show you how you, too, can join the ranks of those who are getting more out of their dairying operation. — O— I Switched To DE LAVAL' FLOYD BODE has the reputation for being a hard-working farmer. Perhaps that is one of the reasons Floyd has made Dairying one of the MOST PROFITABLE of farm operations. But we'd rather have Floyd tell it in his own words: "I know the history of each and every cow in my herd of registered Holsteins. Barn conditions are right and I have a milk house that is as close to perfect as I can make it. But I give DE La- VAL most of the credit for the yield I am getting. DE LAVAL milkers have increased my production. The cups leave the teats nice and soft. There is no trace of mastitis. And the units are as good today as the day I bought them. That's why 'I switched to De Laval'." "Highest Record I Ever Hod" . . . Floyd's Holsteins have been consistent record- breakers, in the production of butterfat. Last year his "Tritomia Ormsby Faye" hung up a record for 102.5 butterfat in one month. That was the highest production he had ever got with one cow. This year, he expects "Snowwhite Tritomia Ormsby", the Holstein pictured below, to do better than that. Those records are being made with the use of DeLaval milking equipment on the Bode farm. "Herd Production Increased" .... The Bode herd increased 50-lbs. per cow in a year, using De Laval equipment. Floyd Bode's experience here is like that of many other dairymen using DeLaval milking equipment. Floyd says there is no varying in production, either, as was the case with other equipment. His cows always give the same, or better. 'Not A Trace of Mastitis' Mr. Bode believes that De Laval equipment is a great eradicator of mastitis, the scourge and dread of dairymen. He says there is not a single trace of it in three-year old heifers he started but on De Laval equipment. AH udders are completely sound and healthy and remain that Way. Pictured above is a portion of the Bode Holstein herd. Floyd says that other milking machines made the cows' teat* hard ... De Laval leaves them soft and pliable. De LAVAL Can Do For Your Herd What It Has Done For The Fine Bode Holstein Herd Dairymen and Farmers! I Attend The ! "SNOW-WHITE TRITOMIA ORMSBY" (pictured above). Floyd Bode says he can prove DeLaval with this one cow. She milks 80 Ibs. a day on twice a day milking. 8 years old, ready to freshen with her fifth calf. She has dropped two fine bull calves. She gave 540 Ibs. of butterfat in 1949, and Floyd expects her to outdo that in 1950. She has been milked exclusively the DeLaval way. Another De Laval "Success Story" Floyd Bode has 12 head now milking. He delivers 540 Ibs. milk daily to the creamery. He has an exceptional milk house in connection with his DeLaval equipment, measuring 12x14 feet, fully insulated and separate from the barn. The floor is glazed cement, which he cleans after each milking with a squee gee. Of his DeLaval milking units, he says that those pictured with him above are as good as the day he bought them.
