Oregon Milkmen Urged to
Enter Portland Exhibit
Oregon's milk producers and dis
tributors, many of whom are known
to market some of the best milk in
the country, may get public recog
nition for this quality by entering
the annual Pacific International
Dairy Products show in Portland,
October 21 to 28, says Dr O. H.
Wilstex, manager of the show and
professor of dairy manufacturing at
O. S. C.
'Tlany Oregon dairy and cream
erymen may not realize that this
has grown to be the largest dairy
products show in the country that
features all products," says Dr.
Wilster. "Butter and cheese mak
ers of Oregon have been competing
successfully year after year with
the best from the middlewest and
east, but Oregon milk producers
have for the most part left the
field to other states."
All milk and cream entered must
be produced October 9, and must
be shipped or delivered not later
than October 10. All milk scoring
above certain marks is awarded
signed diplomas, while the highest
scoring sample gets a gold medal.
