Excerpt from Care and Feeding of Dairy Cattle, Vol. 67
The foregoing explains why the average yield of wheat per acre in Denmark is 42 bushels, England 32, and on this continent less than 20.
An important item is the low cost of freight on concentrated products like butter and cheese having much value in small bulk. Labour is distributed evenly through out the year, winter as well as summer.
Another advantage connected with dairy-farming is the steady market available and the certainty of returns. Market prices for dairy products vary but little from year to year. Dairy products are food necessities, while some farm products are more or less luxuries. Moreover, the market is close at hand. There is no market like the home market, and that is very far from being supplied by home production. Although returns at any one time are not large, they are coming in the whole year through. Thus intelligent dairy-farming is not at all speculative, but is essentially safe farming.
