The answer is that up-to-date farmers get more milk and greater profits by keeping their herds in small quarters and feeding them special rations than by letting them pasture freely. Hence, bovine aristocrats browse only an hour or two in the cool ofthe day -and that forexercise! Typical of Wisconsin's dairy country is this scene near Portage - rolling fields of hay and corn, neighborly farmswith orchards, wood lots well-kept houses, silos, and barns.
