Dairy clubs under proper leadership are organized by and for the boys and girls, having for their object:
1. The elimination of inferior dairy cattle.
2. A means of income to the boy or girl.
3. To create interest and pride in ownership.
4. More efficient and economical feeding.
5. To demonstrate the superiority of good purebred dairy cattle.
6. To emphasize the importance of dairy products in the diet.
Not all dairy clubs will attain all of these objects in a single year. The work is arranged so that it may be carried on for a number of years, each year marking a degree of progress. For that 1·eason there are three kinds of dairy clubs, namely: The milk testing club, the dairy calf club, and the dairy cow club.
