This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world's books discoverable online.

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the
publisher to a library and finally to you.

Usage guidelines

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying.

We also ask that you:

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for
personal, non-commercial purposes.

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help.

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

The twenty-sixth annual meeting of the Michigan Dairymen's Associa-
tion convened at Detroit, in the Wayne Hotel Gardens, at 10 o'clock,
A. M., February 1, witji President T. F. Marsfon in the chair.

The Chairman: Ladies and gentlemen, you will please come to
order. In the absence of music, which w^ do not seem to be provided
with, the first on the program is the Address of Welcome, which will be
given by the Mayor of the city. I take pleasure in introducing to you
Mayor Breitmeyer:


Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen:

I may say, ladies and gentlemen, though I do not know whether the
ladies are a part of this convention, or whether they are attached to
their husbands. Nevertheless, I want to bid you all a welcome to the
city of Detroit. We here are proud of our city. We do not know of any
short-comings, and I want to say to you before going further, that while
you are invited here by the committee who is in charge of this con-
vention, and while the city of Detroit has also invited you here, — ^you are
our guests — ^yet if you see any short-comings, just report the same to
the Mayor, and we will try to see to it that the next time you come to
our city you will find these things overcome.

I see by your program that this is the twenty-sixth time you have
met in like capacity; and I understand that fourteen years ago you met
here in Detroit. Those of you who attended that meeting and are pres-
ent here today can realize that you are meeting today under much more
favorable circumstances than then. At that time you could not find in
the city such a place where you could hold an exhibit such as you are
making today. All this, you will admit, indicates progress for the city
of Detroit.

You are all interested in Detroit, the metropolis of Michigan, as much
so as we are, and to the few who are here from outside the state — and
I was talking with one gentleman from New York, and another one
from away down in Texas — I want you all to know that the city of
Detroit is putting forth its best efforts to do what it can for its visitors.

A few days ago we met with the Bean Jobbers of Michigan, and I
do not know but what Michigan to day is producing as much of this
edible product as any state in the Union. We are glad to have all these

industries of the state meet with us here, and as the largest city in
the state, we want to do all we can to entertain our guests that come
here, and it is for that reason that we are more than pleased to have
you with us.

The other day I had a talk with a gentleman, a newspaper man, by
the name of Crampton, who had quite a good deal to do with the Warner-
Crampton law. We here in Detroit are somewhat bothered with that
law, but as I look out over this audience, I can not see any men who
would be apt to bother themselves about the Wamer-Crampton law,
for they have milk to drink and dairy products to eat. But the law
has its purpose, and while I do not know, I doubt not that the Gover-
nor, who is also a member of this Association, got in his good work on
this subject, so that the standard of the products in the butter, milk
and cheese line is very high. Therefore I think this Association should
be very happy to have a man in its midst like Governor Warner, who is
so keenly interested in the success and high standing of the Associa-

I want again to bid you a hearty welcome to our city. I hope that
your stay will be a pleasant one. Of course we can not give you any
boat rides this time of year, but the best we have is at your service —
you are welcome to it. (Applause).


The Chairman : Mr. Mayor, I desire to say that we had selected one
of our most brilliant and entertaining speakers to respond to your ad-
diress of welcome, Mr. N. P. Hull, but for some reason Mr. Hull is not
here, which we very much regret. And while I believe there are quite
a number here who would be glad to respond to your welcome, under
the circumstances all we can do is to thank you for the welcome you
have given us, and to assure you that it is greatly appreciated by us all.

The Mayor: Pressing engagements require that I take my leave, and
so, Mr. Chairman, I bid you good morning.

The Chairman: I will ask the Vice-President, Mr. F. H. Vanden-
bloom, to take the chair.

Vice-president Vandenboom takes the chair.

Chairman: The next on the program is the address by the president
of this Association, Mr. T. F. Marston, of Bay City.

Mr. Chairman, Members of the Association :

It is with a lively appreciation of the privil^e and of the honor of
being your president that I greet you here today, this our 26th annual
convention. In these 26 years ^e Michigan Dairymen's Association
has seen many changes which have lead to a steady upward growth of
the dairy industry; a growth much more rapid of late years than
formerly. The past year has been an exceptional one. For a long time
these changes were hardly noticeable but of late they have been more
marked and the last year has seen all records of our existence broken in
price, quality, demand, production, and- general interest. Methods of
marketing our products also have changed more rapidly of late years.
Dairying as a business is becoming a business in the strict sense of the
