From Farm Collector The importance and use of milk scales were lessons taught on our Pennsylvania dairy farm when I was a youngster.
We weighed milk from our cows twice daily and weighed the grain fed to
individual cows. ... The dairy farmer used
information like that as the basis for culling cows and improving his
herd’s production and profitability.
This sale is for a pre-owned antique dairy farm hanging brass 30 lb. milk scale, in good used condition. The scale is in very good condition. It should last a long time with care. This isready for your family's home.
The scale is 10" tall x 4.5" wide x 1" deep. We don't really have a good way to test its function or accuracy, but the slide does pull down, so it appears to be operable. Maryland is dairy farm country, where black and white dairy cows can be seen along the country roads.
