GUARDIAN of your well-being This brown-eyed beauty, and her 1,286,000 sisters on Iowa farms, make an important contribution to your personal welfare. Day after day, they produce the dairy foods so vital to the health of your family. And through that abundant production, they provide a major source of Iowa's cash income — over $3,000,000.00 every week — money that makes business for Iowa stores, and fills pay envelopes for Iowa wage-earners. Yes, the dairy cow richly deserves the recognition accorded her during Dairy, Month. And, throughout the year, your family deserves the privilege of enjoying, in generous measure, the fine healthful foods which the dairy oav provides in such abundance. Butterfat Deduction Doubled To Meet Competition Ahead Facing the possibility of increased competition, especially in the field of spreads for bread, dairy farmers are doubling their butterfat deduction—in order to increase their advertising and sales activities in America's metropolitan markets. Dairy farmers of 42 states have a part in these sales activities, which are coordinated and directed by the American Dairy Association. Iowa's part is financed by deductions from production of butterfat at. the rate of one cent per pound during the month of June. In Iowa, the deduction on butterfat produced between June 1 and June 15 is made by law. Deduction for the period from June 15 to June 30 is voluntary. In states which do not have laws similar to Iowa's voluntary deductions are made during the full month of June. As provided by Iowa law, the June 1 to 15 deductions are paid to the Iowa Dairy Industry Commission. The June 15 to 30 deductions, being on a voluntary basis, will be paid to the Iowa State Dairy Association for use in the cooperative campaign. Special committee in charge of these voluntary funds, appointed by the Iowa State Dairy Association, includes: Ernest Wright, Waterloo, Chairman; Ralph Bartlett, Sibley; C. W. Howe, Meredith Farms, Des Moines; Mark Humphrey, Hudson; Clarence Nielsen, Independence; Charles Thatcher, West Bend. Milk, As A Beverage, Maintains Popularity; Cheese, Ice Cream Gain The use of dairy foods by the average American family is con- MILK FIRST IN FOODS! AT today 's price, milk is your biggest bargain in food and refreshment, too. Even if milk cost you twice as much, it would still be more in food, more in refreshment, more in a health provider than you could get for your money any other way. Enjoy at least three glasses a day. You 'll feel better ... . you 'll look better! Every time you take a glass ol milk in hand say: ' "Here 's health—the way to. feel good and look good." Nature planned it that way in making milk the belt in food. Into milk nature pours life- giving vitamins, body-building minerals and essential proteins to grow on, live on and go. No one ever outgrows the need for milk. See that your family uses its full share—every day. tinuing at near-record levels, according to figures quoted in a June Dairy Month message by Frank Barker, Iowa chairman of the Dairy Month committee. "Milk as a beverage remains at the peak of popularity reached during the war years. Last year, for the fourth consecutive year, the consumption of fluid milk was more than 200 quarts for each man, woman and child in the United States. "In evaported milk, 1947 set a new record of 18.5 pounds per capita. "For cheese, 1847 consumption of 8.1 pounds per capita, was within one-tenth of a pound of the all-time record. Consumption of ice cream has passed the 50-pounds-per-year mark,' and continues upward. "The consumption of butter, unfortunately, has been handicapped by a numbed of economic factors beyond the control of the farmer, the processor or the distributor. Even at today's prices, butter still offers outstanding advantages in flavor and in nutrition. When the housewife remembers that it takes four pints of cream to make a pound of butter, she can realize that butter is still an excellent value for her money." "Here in Iowa." Mr. Barker's message continues, "It is entirely fitting that the month of June should be observed as Dairy Month. Few of us not in direct contact with the dairy industry realize how far-reaching are its effects on the health and wealth of all Iowans. "Fine Iowa dairy products go to the marRets of the nation. In return, they bring Iowa a cash income of over $3,000,000 a • week. This means more than $4,000 every day to the average county in Iowa —income comparable to the income which industrialized communities receive for products of mechanized manufacture."
