Excerpt from Butter Tests of Jerseys; Being a Collection of Tests of Registered Jersey Cows, Wherein the Yield Has Amounted to Fourteen Pounds or More Per Week; Brought Down to the First of January, 1884, Vol. 1: To Which Are Added Tables of Sires and Dams of Fourteen-Pound Cows, and Three Essays on Subjects Connected With the Breeding and Testing of Jersey Cattle

This book includes all tests of registered Jersey cows, which were made before January 1, 1884, in the United States or Canada, and have been properly reported to us by the owners or other persons making or superintending the tests, where the actual yield for seven consecutive days was fourteen pounds or more. Intended originally as a mere continuation and enlargement of a list published in the Country Gentleman of February 23, 1882, it has grown to its present dimensions by force of circumstances.

The lists of 1882 included some tests reported to have been made on the island of Jersey, and a number of others for periods less than a week. But an association has recently been formed or the island to superintend and publish tests, so that we decide to omit the island tests. As the tests under seven days are of all lengths from one to six days, it did not seem to us that the labor of collecting and classifying them would be repaid by corresponding usefulness on their part. The seven-day test is quite short enough and is generally accepted as the standard of comparison.

We have required the signature of the owner at the time of the test, or of the person who actually made it, to be published with the test, as the only satisfactory evidence of its accuracy that we are in a position to offer. We have not presumed that a person of good character will certify to a statement which he does not know to be correct, and if the person so certifying is of indifferent or doubtful reputation, the publication of his name Ought to be the best way of bringing that fact to light. We have adhered to this rule, even to the extent of rejecting several tests strongly supported by other evidence, and probably correct, but lacking the certificate of the person making or superintending. Two reports by a man whom the club has discredited by rejecting his entries have also been thrown out.
