Scald the milk, and stir in the rolled oats, shortening and salt. Let sit till lukewarm.

Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add to oat mixture. Stir in molasses and 6 cups flour.

Beat in bowl for 5 minutes, using the flat paddle of an electric mixer, or beat by hand with a spoon.

Let dough rise for 1 1/2 hours, or until doubled in bulk. Punch down, and spoon into two 10x5-inch (1 1/2-lb.) bread pans. Let rise till almost doubled, about 1 hour.

Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 30 minutes, or until loaves test done. Remove from oven, remove bread from pans, and brush each loaf with melted butter. Cool completely on a wire rack.
