Dairying a Safe Business

 One of the advantages of dairy farming which appeals to the farmer — especially a farmer with limited capital — is the quickness and the certainty of the returns. The dairy cow gives an immediate return and her product is always marketable. The returns, while not large at any one time, are steady throughout the year and may be depended upon. The market price of dairy products varies on the whole less than almost any other class of farm products.
 As a result of these conditions the development and expansion of dairy farming, particularly in the Mississippi Valley states, has in the past developed with the greatest rapidity during periods of financial depression in agriculture. The general farmer at such times finds it desirable to produce sufficient dairy products to meet his current expenses at least.
