Excerpt from U. T. Farmer, Vol. 3: October, 1908
If the cow is not properly cared for there is always more or less filth and dust particles adhering to the ¿ank, belly and hind quarters which are readily dislodged and drop into the pail with their aecom panying bacteria. This... dirt is usually composed partly of the offal from the animal and contains a great number of germs of various types. This source of contamination may readily be overcome by proper attention to the care of the cow. Good bedding with the proper brushing will aid greatly in keeping the bacterial count low. The use of a small amount of water applied to the parts of the animal adjoining the udder will be found very effective.
Often the milker is at the same time feeder and barn attendant and without proper precaution goes from one task to the other, thus carrying many bacteria into the milk while drawing it. Dust clinging to his hands and clothing readily drops into the vessels and adds greatly to the bac teria of the milk. A change of clothing and careful washing of the hands and face should always come between the feeding, barn cleaning, etc., and the milking. Any carelessness about cleanliness of person on the part of the milker adds its own share to the bacterial contents of the milk.
