It is also the aim of the associa
tion to work toward getting the
daily products shipped under one
brand having a standard quality and
to raise the present standard of
quality, thus getting better prices;
first by a better quality; second, by
having enough ot a certain quality,
and a large quantity to create a de
mand for it on the market; third,
by operating only the creameries
that are found necessary to handle
the milk produced, thereby cutting
down expenses of operating so many
unnecessary creameries and hiring
more than < ne manager.
The success of the association
depends on the efforts of the dairy
men and a large memliership will
greatly help. However, the mem
bership ot the association is quite
large at present.
It is hoped all interested in dairy
ing will attend the next meeting and
take part in the important business
that is to come before it.
