Excerpt from Willard's Practical Butter Book: A Complete Treatise, Om Butter-Making at Pactories and Farm Dairies, Including the Selection, Feeding and Management of Stock for Butter Dairying With Plans for Dairy Rooms and Creameries, Dairy Fixtures, Utensils, Etc Butter dairying is a specialty of such large and growing importance that a treatise wholly devoted to that interest, it would seem, is very widely demanded. I have endeavored to meet this general want by supplying full information concerning the latest improvements in creamery practice, and by furnishing a work that is a safe, practical and comprehensive butter manual. The work has been freshly written, and gives the result not only of my own experience, and extensive personal observation, but the most approved practice of the best butter-makers at home and abroad. In the matter illustrating the secretion of milk and mammary gland, I am indebted mainly to the writings of Prof. Simonds, the distinguished Veterinary Surgeon to the Royal Agricultural Society, of England. Among the new topics of interest, and which heretofore have not been presented to the dairy public are: Prof. Wilkinson's plan for controlling temperature in dairy rooms; the Swedish System of setting milk for cream in ice water; the new practice adopted at the Ridge Mills Creamery, and the recent method for improving skimmed milk in skimmed-cheese manufacture. These are very fully discussed, and will be found suggestive to practical and progressive butter-makers. That the work may prove useful to the large class for which it is intended is the sincere wish of the author.
