There seems to be a general demand for more exact information in regard to testing cream by the Babcock method. A large number of factories in this and adjoining states which have until recently separated all the milk used at the creamery, now receive more or less cream from patrons using their own small separators.
The general adoption of the system of paying for milk according to the amount of fat contained, makes it desirable that those furnishing cream be paid on the same basis. The increased use of the skimming station plan has also helped to make cream testing of more importance, as it is often desired to keep an accurate account of the cream received from each station.
