       Taylor county enthusiasts claim that the world's largest patron-
hauling oreamery is located in Medford. This is a cooperative creamery and,
last year, it paid out nearly $1,000,000 to local farmers. It has 980 patrons,
of which 600 are share holders. This creamery is of the greatest importance
to the locality. Peas are canned here and there is also a sash and door fac-
tory and a veneer manufacturing plant. There are a number of prosperous
cheese factories in the community. Medford has five rural routes.
