The results reported in this Bulletin are a continuation of the investigations on the acidity of creamery butter, a preliminary report of which was published as Bulletin No. 116 of this Station under the title, "Acidity of Creamery Butter and Its Relation to Quality." In this latter Bulletin it was shown that no definite relation was found to exist between the score and the acidity of fresh butter, but that experiments then in progress indicated that the acid test was a fair measure of the extent and rapidity of the deterioration of butter held in storage. Investigations on the acidity of cold storage butter, amount and nature of acids and other decomposition products of butter, and their relation to rancid and ill-flavored butter are now in progress and results will be reported in future publications.
