I have a cow which gave rich milk all the time, but now every time I

milk her some yellow, hard substance will come out instead of milk.

First from one teat, then the next, and when I strain the milk the

strainer will be full of hard yellow specks.

Your cow has undoubtedly been affected with garget. This milk should not

be used. The condition is best treated by massaging the udder every day

with camphorated oil. It will also be necessary for you to continue to

milk her regularly until about six weeks before she is due to freshen,

at which time you should proceed to dry her up.
