2-Algentt (la.) Upper Des Moinet Tuesday, Dec. 5, 1967 New Ownership For Pioneer Cheese Factory The Pioneer Cheese Factory, about five miles north of Renwick and owned by Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Macha, will be operated by the Renwick Community Creamery, with possession as of Dec. 1, 1967. All of the equipment will be moved to the Renwick Community Creamery, but the trade name will remain the same and the Creamery will sell cheese as the Pioneer Cheese Factory did. Mr. and Mrs. Macha came to the Pioneer Cheese factory in 1937 and worked for the Rosedale Creamery who operated it at that time. For the past 12 years, Mervin Dobbs, a native of Wisconsin, but now a resident of Renwick, has been the head cheesemaker. There are two milk truck haulers and on the average during the daily deliveries, seven days a week, about 71/2 million pounds of milk have been brought in for a year, producing about 740,000 pounds of cheese, averaging better than a 1,000 pounds each day. For sometime now this milk has been made into Pioneer Colby Cheese. The Machas also produced a supply of brick cheese, limburger, and Swiss cheese that was held for retail distribution at the factory. Daily delivery of the milk is necessary since the milk has to be sweet for cheese making. The original Pioneer Cheese Factory was started and built by ten farmers, living in the area in 1888, the cost of the land was about $123, the farmers being their own carpenters. It was owned as a cooperative and the farmers hired a cheesemaker. The new plant is a two-story structure with a six-room dwelling where the Machas live. Besides operating the factory, Mr. and Mrs. Macha farm several hundred acres of land. Slate Meeting On Collective Marketing An open meeting on "Collective Marketing for Farmers" will be sponsored by the Iowa State Extension Service, announces Galen DeValois, county extension director. The meeting in this area will be held at Spencer Dec. 6 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Legion hall, located on north highway 71. "Collective bargaining in agriculture has received much attention in the last few months and this should be an interesting and educational meeting," said De- Valois. He emphasized this is a public meeting for all interested. Expressway For U.S. 18 Gets East Iowa Beginning The State Highway Commission evidently isn't fooling in talk about putting an "expressway" across northern Iowa, to replace most of existing U. S. 18. Plans and right-of-way for 33 miles of new road, to replace existing U. S. 18 across Chickasaw, Fayette, Winneshlek and Clayton counties have been acquired, and a public hearing set for Dec. 14. The relocation would extend from about Lawler to a point southeast of Postville. Estimated cost for the new 33 mile segment is $7,003,000. Plans call for start of construction in 1970. The announcement added that the new expressway when completed would run from the Mississippi river west to Algona.
