Description

"Cooperative bull associations are formed by farmers for the joint ownership, use, and exchange of pure-bred bulls. The purchase price and cost of maintenance are distributed according to the number of cows owned by each, thereby giving the farmer an opportunity to build up his herd at minimum expense. The organization also helps its members to market dairy stock and dairy products, to fight contagious diseases of cattle intelligently, and in other ways assists in improving the dairy industry. The bull association does not give something for nothing, but with an outlay of $50 can furnish a share in five pure-bred bulls. These bulls cannot increase the production of the cows in a herd, but they may double the production of their daughters. The daughters of association bulls and grade cows can never be registered, but in all other respects they may be the equal of purebreds." -- p. 2
