Wicomin Dairymen's Associaion.9 
Mr. Baer: Is it not a fact that a large part of the so-called 
imported Swiss cheese that is sold in Wisconsin is made right 
in Green county ? 
Mr. Marty: We have had experience where that was done. 
There was a case happened in Ohio; there was a cheese bought 
that was to be tested and compared with some imported cheese, 
and when the cheesemaker unwrapped the package, he found it 
was a cheese that he had manufactured at his own factory, his 
own brand, brought in there as imported. 
A: Member: Do you make Limburger cheese in Green 
couity ? 
Mr. Marty: Oh, yes. 
A Member: And is that Swiss cheese? 
Mr. Marty: It is a different manufacture altogether. It is 
lassed in with foreign cheese, 
A Member: You have to devote the factory to one kind of 
cheese, don't you? You can't make different kinds in the same 
factory ? 
Mr. Marty: Oh, yes, although we prefer, when the condi- 
tions are the same, upland, more dry, when we manufacture the 
Swiss cheese. In a different locality, low bottom marsh lands, 
we manufacture the brick and Limburger cheese. 
Mr. Goodrich: Do you use the Babcock test as a basis for 
dividing the money between the patrons? 
Mr. Marty: I am very sorry to say that is something that 
has not been adopted in Green county or in the foreign cheese 
industry. I think it should be, I can see no reason why it 
should noL 
See'y Burchard: State what resolution was passed by the 
Swiss Cheese Convention last week on that subject. 
Mr. Marty: There were a couple of papers read at the con- 
vei3ion, showing the different results obtained in regard to pay- 
ment on the different per cents of milk, the actual worth of the 
milk, and there was a resolution passed as to whether it would 
not be a good plan to pay on the Babcock test, and the resolu- 
tion was accepted at the Swiss Cheese Convention.
