DHIA Cows Pass 10,00 Pound Level 1958 will be a milestone in the history of dairy herd impr6vement work in this coun,try. During 1958 DHIA cows established an all-lAme high average milk production level of ten thousand and sixty eight pounds of mi'lk ,per cow. In 1906when Dairy Herd Im- provement work started, the aver- age prodution per cow was five thousand three hundred pounds per cow. In ,that year, only two hundred thirty nine cows were on test. In 1958 one million ,three hun- dred and forty five thousand co~vs were on test with an average pro- ducti(m per cow o:f ten thousand and six,ty eight pounds. Improving a dairy herd is not easily or quicldy done or accom- plis~hed. Wha~ ~)HIA members do, any dairyman can do. Any dairyman cart improve .his herd regardless of i.ts s~ze or level of production if 'he keeps records on his cows and uses ~hose records to improve his herd.

This fact is ,borne out by figures compiled by the Tax Depa~l~nent's Business and Occt~palion and Transportation Tax Division for %he ~hird quarter of 1959, ending Septem~oer 30. CollectAons under ,ffnat tax were u~) 1'9 percen:t in %l~t quarter over ~he ,third quarter of last year. i The tax yield :for ,the three-men th period to%aled $12,858,573.93 as related to only $10,794,124.18 for ,~the third quarter af 1958. That is !a dollar and cen~ increa.~e o~ $2,- 1064,449.75. : T~e :larges,t increase was marked up ~n .the cor~tra~ng field ~here ~he ~hird qttavter collections t~- a:led $1,5~6,912.33, as compared to $9S1,777.63 for ~e same .three months of 1958. ! That represents an increase of 83 per cone. , ~ome ot~er categories listing su bstantial invreases were oil (up 52 per corot); m~nufacturing (up 47) telegraph companies (up 40) ; stea~r~boa,t- steaxnship companies (up 54) ;'buses (up 40) ; and truck ers and ot~er carriers (up 23 per cer~t). The ~hird quarter figures for 1958 actually cover what were !probably hhe most severe ~r~onths i :of ,last year's decline, i The Vax collecitions trail the per: iod in w~c:h the business w~s act l ual,ly ~transacted by approximately I three months. The comeback being made in ,~he business Ee~d is bringing our !revenue yield back to 'the general level enjoyed prior to 1958. The year 1967 was the best in Wes,t Virginia's history in total collectAons under She Business and OccupatAon and Transport~vtAon Tax. .q-Ieavy tax losses are amt)ici,p~ted as a result of %he lengthy steel :str~ke, which will prevent this cur :ren~ fiscal year from, settAng new records of revenue collection.
