First half-year, beginning Tuesday, October 6th, and closing Thursday, December 17th. This course consists of practical work in making butter and cheese, testing milk for fat and adulterations, and operating dairy machinery, supplemented by lectures and recitations treating of the principles involved in modern dairy practice.

Four rooms on the ground floor of the Agricultural Building have been fitted up for the use of the Dairy School. The largest one, about 30 by 40 feet, is used as the work-room for making butter and cheese. One is for the dairy laboratory, one for cold storage and for cheese curing, and the fourth for a dressing-room. These are fitted with the best appliances for their special uses that can be secured, and they make comfortable and convenient working quarters for about thirty students.

The dairy course is open to all persous of good moral character who are at least seventeen years of age and who have a common-school education. No formal entrance examinations will be required, but it is expected that all applicants will have had sufficient school training to enable them intelligently to understand lectures, take notes, and perform the necessary text-book work. The usual grammar school course gives a fair preparation for this work, although the better the previous education of the student the greater will be the benefit to be derived from the instruction given.
