1888: New Dairy Methods

Middletown, Conn., Jan. 27.–A notable change in the methods of Connecticut dairy farming is going on in the establishments throughout the state of a large number of creameries for the manufacture of butter. In nearly every community the farmers have co-operated in the formation of a creamery association, and an extensive business is conducted. Each day an agent visits the patrons of the association and collects the cream. The butter which is manufactured at the creameries is superior in many respects to that made in the old fashioned churn. The introduction of creameries has greatly increased the amount of dairy products.”– From the Evening Gazette (Pittston, Pennsylvania), Jan. 27, 1888.
