We are often asked how much loss there is in setting milk in cans or pans as is customary with farmers in general who have but few cows or are at a considerable distance from a creamery. Many experiments of this sort have been made and we will only add our testimony to what has already been written. The table below is the average result of four separate trials, made with the best of farm conditions, viz.: Ice water in which to set the milk, a place where the milk would be undisturbed, and setting of the milk soon after being drawn from the cow.
