During the past few years the European War has had effects both serious and far-reaching upon the production of milk and upon the price asked therefor. That the cost of milk production has increased decidedly in a multitudinous variety of ways, is no theoretical statement, but is based on facts of absolute knowledge, especially when the items of cost of labor and feeds are considered. Even at times it has not been a question of what price to pay for grain, or of what wages to pay to men, but it has been, at times, in some sections, an absolute impossibility to purchase feed or hire men at any price.

The inevitable result of this situation has been an increase in price of milk to the consumer and has consequently brought about a storm of protests and refusals on the part of the consumer, so great as to preclude the possibility of a return for his milk to the producer, at all proportionate to the increased cost of production.
