Milk Now Brings $200,000 A Day To Iowa ti is entirely fitting that the month of June should be observed A« Dairy Month, especially In Iowa and Kossulh county. Few of us not in direct contact with the dairy industry realize how far reaching are its effects on the health and wealth of lowans. Fine Iowa dairy products, and especially butter, go fo the markets of the nation. In return, they bring io Iowa a cash income of over $200,000 & day. That money it "new money," comparable to the income which highly industrialized states received for products of mechanized manufacture. Economists have pointed out that the 3139,000,000 which goes io Iowa's dariy farmers each year is the kind of money that turns over again and again, reaching in Its effects almost every eiiitin of Iowa. The dairyman spends a portion of it for needed supplies, both for his operations and for his family. This makes business for the stores with which he trades, which in turn improve* payrolls and expenditures by wage-earners. The process* repeats itself many times before the money comes to rest in the form of such evidences of wealth as savings deposits, government bonds, property ownership, and other tangible and stable evidences of prosperity. If someone were io tell us of a new industry that would bring $200,000 in "ne'w money" into Iowa each day — and give us fine foods that build health to boot — what wouldn't we offer it to locate here? And since we already have such an industry, its a splendid thing to recognite and honor it during Dairy Month! 4-Algona (la.)
