Milking Cows From a Swivel Chair (Oct, 1954)

Milking Cows From a Swivel Chair

You can just sit back and let the cows do most of the work in this modern unit.

THE dream of farming by push-button came a whole lot closer to reality this year when the Hervey Research Development Corp. of Geneva, Ill., put on the market its amazingly efficient pre-packaged dairy plant which enables one person to wash, milk and feed 30 cows an hour without even stirring from a comfortable foam-rubber-cushioned swivel chair.

Sitting at ease in the center of the milking room, the operator pulls a cord to open the barn door, twists a crank to measure out feed for each cow, then tugs at another cord to let Bossy go back to pasture. Automatic milkers pipe the Grade A to a stainless steel cooling tank.

New York Dairies Deliver Milk in Paper Bottles (May, 1929)

New York Dairies Deliver Milk in Paper Bottles
THE OLD familiar milk bottle which greets the householder on the back stoop every morning bids fair to be replaced by a paper container which has several advantages over the glass bottle. In the first place, the new container cannot be shattered and it has no glass edges to be chipped off with consequent danger of foreign particles finding their way into the milk.

Mechanical Cow (Feb, 1950)

This is not our first mechanical cow.

Mechanical Cow

Up in Whitehorse, the largest settlement in the Yukon Territory, children get their milk from a mechanical cow. Actually, the machinery works in reverse β€” it churns milk stock, pure water and butter back into rich milk. The water is heated to 100 degrees Fahrenheit and the milk stock added. Then the mixture is brought to a boil and butter mixed in at a temperature of 145 degrees.

Dairy Industry In General Can Look Forward To Another Good Year (Jan, 1967)

Dairy Industry In General Can Look Forward To Another Good Year

WHERE IS THE DAIRY INDUSTRY HEADED IN 1967? Generally the outlook is bright. Milk supplies, it appears, will be adequate. Production in recent months has recovered from a slump lasting a year and a half. Apparently this will not have great effect on the price processors must pay because USDA has moved quickly to stabilize prices. It remains to be seen whether these supports will slow the exodus of producers from dairy farming.

“But Elmer, I didn’t say it would make you live to 90!” said Elsie, the Borden Cow. (Jun, 1954)

“But Elmer, I didn’t say it would make you live to 90!” said Elsie, the Borden Cow.

“I don’t need anything to help ME live to 90,” bellowed Elmer the bull. “I HAVE DECIDED THAT I’M GOING TO LIVE TO 105 WITHOUT ANY HELP!”

“Well, if you’re planning to live that long,” laughed Elsie, “there’s more reason than ever for you to drink Borden’s Buttermilk every day.”

HOW ICE CREAM IS MADE (Jan, 1951)

HOW ICE CREAM IS MADE

Prepared by the Armstrong Cork Company, makers of Industrial Insulations, in cooperation with the International Association of Ice Cream Manufacturers

They say Dolly Madison introduced ice cream to America. When she first served it at the White House she probably hoped it would become popular, but she never dreamed of the big plants and automatic equipment that now produce thousands of gallons and dozens of flavors.

Cream or Milk as You Want It (May, 1930)

Cream or Milk as You Want It

AMONG the many cream and milk skimmers, this one is considered by housewives to be one of the best and most practical. Simple in operation, it is entirely made of aluminum and is thoroughly sanitary.

When cream is desired, the aluminum tube is let down into the bottle to the depth of the cream. When only milk is wanted, the tube is let down until it reaches the milk and does not disturb the cream. It is easily kept clean for a strong stream of hot water injected through it direct from the faucet removes all accumulations in the tube.

Cold Milk Sold by Slot Machine (Oct, 1930)

“Vendicator” is an awesome name. It sounds like “Hahah, this will be my revenge on everyone who laughed at my idea that a machine could sell milk!”

“Lacteal fluid” is possibly the most disgusting way to say milk ever.

Cold Milk Sold by Slot Machine

THIS mechanical cow, which has been christened “Vendicator,” dispenses half pint bottles of ice cold milk for either ten or fifteen cents. All one has to do is to drop the necessary coins in the slot, turn the handle, and the bottle of lacteal fluid makes its appearance at the proper opening.

Milk Cured My Nerve Shock (Mar, 1922)

So milk cures P.T.S.D? Someone should tell the Defense Department!

Milk Cured My Nerve Shock

The Story of the Physical Regeneration of W. J. McLemore

An Interview and Introduction by Edwin F, Bowers, M. D
ILLUSTRATION BY LEONARD WHITNEY

ONE of the most deplorable, disheartening and distressing results of the War is our crop of cripples. The cruelly maimed, the pathetic blind, the derelicts who have lost legs or arms in the bestial, bitter game, are figures of sorrow. They affect every decent-minded man or woman with an overshadowing sense of resentment and protest at the futility of it all.
