Selling poor quality milk 1917

Loughborough Herald - 5th July 1917

Jeremiah J Stirling, milk seller, Quorn, was summoned for selling milk not of the quality demanded, on May 20th. Mr Ironside (Leicester) defended. Supt. Agar put in the analyst's certificate showing that the sample purchased from defendant's wife was deficient in milk fat to the extent of at least 13 per cent. Mr Ironside said he hoped to satisfy the Bench that it was genuine milk, and had not been altered in any way, and its quality was entirely and only due to the cow. The mere fact that the sample was deficient in fat did not constitute an offence.

The farmer, and his son, from whom defendant had the milk, said it was delivered just as it came. Defendant and Mrs Stirling gave evidence that the milk was sold exactly as it came from the cows. The Bench dismissed the case.
