ABBOTSFORD, Population 782
        Dairying is the mainstay of this Clark county community. Both
butter and cheese are shipped in large quantities. One. of the warehouses
of the Wisconsin Cheese Federation is located in the town, 31 local cheese
factories being affilated. Local farmers are finding poultry profitable
and the flocks on many nearby farms are supplementing the dairy herd as
profit-makers. Peas are another important product of the community.
