The Dairymaid badge, introduced in 1917 has also been known as Dairy Worker, but the dates for each name are confusing.  In 1925 it is referred to as Dairymaid.  It remains as Dairymaid until around 1935 as it appears in the 1935/6 issue of Hints on Girl Guide Badges.  However, in the 1935 edition of Policy, Organisation and Rules, it is referred to as Dairy Worker.  It is called Dairy Worker in Hints in 1938, 1940, 1942, 1945 and 1946, but 1943 POR has it as dairymaid!  From the late 1940's, it is always referred to as Dairymaid up until it is discontinued in 1980, when the syllabus becomes one option of the Farmer badge.
