For Winter Dairy Course Students_.

*All other courses in Chemistry are open to students in Agriculture.

† All other courses in Entomology are open to students in Agriculture.
All courses not required in the sophomore year may be elected.
? Subject to rule found on page 230.

Deposits are required in the various laboratories where work is taken ranging from $1.50 to $10.00 per term according to the amount and nature of the work.


There are many persons who cannot spend two or more years at college, but who would receive great benefit from lectures and practice during the winter months. To meet the needs of such persons the following courses are offered. They begin the first week in January of each year and extend through one university term of eleven weeks. Persons who are of good moral character and seventeen years of age may be admitted by the Director of the College without a formal examination, but are required to file a letter of recommendation and to satisfy the Director that their previous training has been such that they can pursue the studies elected with profit to themselves and credit to the University.

Students may elect either one of the following lines of study.
I. Winter Course in Agriculture.

Prescribed work-Agriculture, 5 hours per week.

Horticulture, 2 hours per week.

Animal industry, 2 hours per week.

Agricultural Chemistry, 2 hours per week.

Two hours per day of practice in educational work in barns, dairy houses, forcing houses and laboratories.

Elective. A minimum of four hours must be taken in addition to the prescribed work from the subjects named below :


Entomology, 2 hours per week.

Botany, 2 hours per week.

Dairy Husbandry, 2 hours per week.
Poultry Keeping, 2 hours per week.

Political Economy, 1 hour per week.

Diseases of Farm Animals, 1 hour per week.

The Winter Dairy Course.

This course is designed primarily to meet the needs of those butter and cheese makers who desire more thorough and comprehensive instruction, and to train those who are looking toward butter and cheese making as a profession. The instruction is given largely with the view of fitting students for conducting factories, while that in the Winter Course in Agriculture is given with particular reference to the needs of the farm dairy.

Not more than fifty students can be accommodated in the building. The class will be limited to this number and applications should be made at as early a date as practicable in order to insure admission.

The instruction is partly by lectures and recitations, but largely by actual practice in the Creamery, Cheese Factory and Dairy Laboratory, the order being about as follows :

Lectures on milk and its products, 2 hours per week.

Lectures on subjects related to dairying, 10 hours per week.

Cheese room practice, twice weekly, 4-6 hours each.
Butter room practice, twice weekly, 4-6 hours each.
Dairy laboratory practice, twice weekly, 2-4 hours each.
Problems and book-keeping, 2 hours per week.


The entrance examinations for students in the Regular Course are held in September and June. The instruction begins in the fall term, September 28, 1899; in the Winter Course in Agriculture and in the Dairy course, January 3, 1900. Students may be excluded if not present at the beginning of the term.

For further particulars and for a special announcement which will be sent on application, address I. P. Roberts, Director of the College of Agriculture, Cornell University, Ithaca, N. Y.

The Agricultural Experiment Station of Cornell University is a Department of the College of Agriculture. Incidentally, students may receive instruction from observing and discussing the experiments which are being carried on. The Federal Law passed March 2d, 1887, briefly outlines the object of the Experiment Station in the following words: "To aid in acquiring and diffusing among the people of the United States useful and practical information on the subjects connected with agriculture, and to promote scientific investigation and experiment respecting the principles and applications of agricultural science." It further provides "That bulletins or reports of progress shall be published at said stations at least once in three months, one copy of which shall be sent to each newspaper in the states or territories in which they are respectively located, and to such individuals actually engaged in farming as may request the same and as far as the means of the station will permit." The entire plant of the College of Agriculture is used, as occasion demands, for conducting experiments in animal and plant growth and reproduction, and in applied, comparative and scientific research and investigations. In pursuance of Chapter 430 of the Laws of 1899 of New York State, provision is made for "giving instruction throughout the state by means of schools, lectures and other University extension methods, or otherwise, and in conducting investigations and experiments; in discovering the diseases of plants and remedies; in ascertaining the best method of fertilization of fields, gardens and plantations; and best modes of tillage and farm management and improvement of live stock; and in printing leaflets and disseminating agricultural knowledge by means of lectures or otherwise; and in preparing and printing for free distribution the results of such investigations and experiments, and for republishing such bulletins as may be useful in the furtherance of the work, and such other information as may be deemed desirable and profitable in promoting the agricultural interests of the state.”
