. . . THE STOKY OF IOWA'S $474,753,000 IN DAIRY INDUSTRY (at Retail) Estherville Co-op Creamery A Cornerstone of Our County's Agricultural Economy As, a citizen of Iowa, you can talte real pride in viewing the fiKiires al»ove. They represent the place taken in the nation by Iowa's dairy industry, and they also represent thousands and thousands ol dollars beinR brouRht into our stale EVKUY DAY of tlie year. We can give credit for all of it to Her Majesty, "The Iowa Dairy Cow," for siie Ki\es us two important thmgs . . . She supplies us with a nutritious part of our daily diet, and a most important part of our farm income. Over $4r)0,000,()0() at retail, to be exact. But let's try to reduce "Dairying" to something in terms of our own county. Let's put it close lo honu'. In the average county like ours, the daily processing and sale of dairy products brings in, to our county, thousands of dollars every day. And this income is steady. History will show that the dairy industry, with its dollar income, lends to show less change from year to year than any other phase of Iowa agriculture. Take Butter. Butter means Iowa. Iowa is SKCONI) in the im- tion in butter production. We have in uuiny counties of Iowa returns of §1,000 and $S,()t)0 and nu)re pt>r day from the sale (tf Butter. And butler production, important as it is (o Iowa, is only one ot the eiglit important Dairy foods prodiu;ed here. Every sun-up and every sun-down see nu)re thousands of dollars brought into our county by Her Majesty, "The Iowa Dairy Cow." Wo in Iowa prt)diu'e a wealth ol dairy products, and we consume a lot. We do much of both right her«> in KMMET County. • • • Iowa is the .5th raaking state in total milk production — and that's a lot of Milk. Over half of our milk has been made into Butter, Iowa's creameries Having produced a couple of milUoo pounds of It a year, and in the future it is cxjiectcd that more and more will be sold as Fluid Milk. We rank jl^th in production of Dry Milk Solids, which is turned into a retail product that is finding its way mdre apd more onto liousewive's shelves. 15th is our standing in Evaporated Milk, which has been called the food of "a thousand uses." / ' In delicious, refreshing, nutritious Ice Cream, we are '16th. Iowa's dairymen and ice cream manufacturers have ndsed "America's Favorite" dessert dish to that standing over put years. Though Iowa is not a cheese - producing state, primarily, it stands 17th in nation-wide ranking, as it does^ Cottage Cheese production. And in an industry that is as complex as the Dairy industry, because it is spread out into every town and hamlet ot the state, those standings are something to be proud of. Yes, tiio Dairy Cow pictured above — "The Iowa Dairy Cow" — is one of the most honored ladies of oitr state v' . . and today, during June Dairy Month, we pay very special homage to her right here in EMMST County — a great dairy county ot a great dairy state!
