Milk Testing, a Simple, Practical Handbook for Dairy Farmers, Estate Agents, Creamery Managers, Milk Distributors, and Consumers

Abstract

THIS useful little book has so commended itself to those for whom it was intended that it is now for the econd time revised and enlarged. The new matter includes such recent developments of the dairy industry as the testing of sour milk and the description of port able appliances for use by travelling inspectors. It is a happy circumstance that Mr. Walker-Tisdale, who is himself the manager and a director of a large milk company, should thus place his experience at the disposal of other dairy managers, and it is equally for tunate that the British dairy manager and farmer, so far from abusing the monopoly he possesses (for there is practically no importation of milk from abroad) should show himself so ready to apply chemical tssts in order satisfactorily to establish the purity of his milk.

By C. W. Walker-Tisdale. Revised edition. Pp. 86. (London: Dairy World Office, 98 Fetter Lane, 1911.) Price 1s. net.
