The Dairy Department of this Station was fully organized by June 1894. The latter part of 1893 and early part of 1894 were devoted to fitting up the dairy rooms and getting the' necessary appliances and machinery in place. As our dairy herd was too small for experimental work, it was decided during the spring of 1894 to increase the number to fifteen head. The selection and purchasing of those cows were left to the writer.
