cream seperator

Did you recognize the cream separator? Before we had refrigerators, we used the milk daily. It would clabber up very quickly when it was warm. Of course if you save the cream and made butter; then the skim milk could be given to the animals; hogs, for instance. The hogs would sing you a happy tune if you fed them grain mash mixed with skim milk; fresh or sour, they didn't care. We are speaking from experience.
