Co-op Creamery BUSINESS JUMPS FROM $14,000 TO $620,080 YEARLY Every Kossuth county community has a co-operative creamery, and ',hev j'll deserve the. credit due them lor the part they . have played in community life. To take one as an example, some interesting facts atoout the Algona Co*Operat : ve Creamery, recognized as one of ths °'. J J" standing creameries of the middle west, will ,aive anyone a good Mea of how dairy exoanston has resulted in farm prosncrity. Organised in 1891 The Algona creamery was organized in 1891, and in the fir=t full operating year, 1892, the creamery did a gross business of $14.000. In 1945 this creamery did a- business of $620,000. In 1892 buttert'at was bringing \£c Saturday, June 8, btit- "tcrfat was bringing 62c a Ib. The local creamery has G54- i-ncmbers at the present time. Mads Christiansen, • creamery manager here, stated -that .the creamery was-practically forced into an expansion program of $84,000 in improvements-in 19.42,1 . and is now- considering a; lai-fjer "• program to take' care .of- thelin- • cre_ase 'in. fluid jnilk. . being.-,/received. 1 ' Po'wdered Milk Arrives' One'of the-largest single devoir : opments. rin 'thp ^local- qreamery. •has been' the ndveht of skimmed, powdered milk. . ". .;.;.. . The demand for this resulted, (from research in World War II, •where the services sought means or bringing more proteins to fighting men. Powdered milk was the answer. Powdered milk is now used in candy, sausage, ice cream, and, even bread, as well as many oth- er things in addition to being a concentrate from which milk can again be produced, as all' war veterans, with overseas duty know. The local creamery's powdered milk setup was the chief reason for the 1942 expansion and expenditure, and has proved its worth. Able management from its personnel, and helpful leadership from the farmer members,, have played no small part in the creamery's growth in the past 55. years.

Hugh Black, who ; farhis v ~ 480 ' ' acres, -four miles east and one .mile south of AVnna.-the Ayrshire is the'-bo'n- ny best of them all.

Peer-'-and Jvis- soh Cpnvin,.Miave -a herd of 15 Ayrshires, and own between 1 them a good bull in partnership. Prior to his decision to develop an Ayrshire herd, Black had Shorthorns. • " Those "iii the hew 'herd originally came from New York and ^'icbii/an. when he purchased 12. The increase to 18 is a result of breeding in the past three years. 'Praises Scotch Breed Bhick says that he likes his •Ayrshires for several reasons, among 'them: They are a Ions-life cow, and Hold more life production records than any other 'breed. They are easy to keep, are good foragers, have the best udder 'breed according to dairy cattle judges. And last but not least, maybe they just are these things because they're of Scotch descent. Hugh has two men helping him now, althoush he usually has only one. He does, diversified farming and cattle feeding, as well as..dairying.. Killed in Fall. Ben Tjabering, Austinvllle, retired-from the farm a few years ago. Recently he was back on the job to help his brother-in-law, was thrown from a tractor and killed, At Redfield, a tractor rolled over twice with Gene Bercy. He was only slightly bruised. Called Home. Fred Schwery or Harlan was aroused one morning at six a. m. recently by-the telephone ringing. It was his son Paul, now in the army, calling him from Switzerland. D'ffercnt Tune. Robert Smith, Toledo, has a car with a musical horn. For tooting it un-necessarily in the late hours, he was fined $14.35 by Mayor Carnal and instructed to toot no more. Stick Together.

Per capita consumption of fresh milk in the U. S. has gained steadily since 1938. , A quart of milk a day supplies the following percentages of outstanding daily nutritive requirements for an average adult: calcium IQO'/,, riboflavin. (vitamin G) lS r /c, phosphorus 69%, protein 46% vitamin A 37%, niacin 80%, vitamin Bl 28%, calories 22,%, iron 16%. and vitamin C 10%. Milk for Adults One of the- objectives of milk advertising is to show adults why they should drink more milk, Federal nutrition studies show that adults are too prone to leave the milk drinking to children. , "As physical activity is reduced with advancing age the caloris needs are also less, b^t the need , for protective foods is not less; it may be even greater. Nervous energy requires more vitamins I than calories. For <*opd Pi»po*5lion | Drinking milk may improve the dispositions pf those .whs drink it.

It was the first organized attempt of the dairy industry to create a wider market for its products. It was so successful that the industry decided it should be repeated, but it was tile feeling that a longer period should be observed. ...,.-.. Iii 1938. the period was called NATIONAL MILK MONTH and it was moved up to the summer to coincide with the season of highest production, being held from June 10 to July 10. Again the campaign was successful, • , To make the campaign a little easier to promote and manage, in 1939 it was changed to cover the entire month of June and the name was changed, for the- last time, to June DAIRY MONTH. It has been held in June since and now is an 1 established na-. tiona) institution. - . ,'„•""."'.'
