     This town is located in one of the richest agricultural and dairy dis-
tricts in the state. The chief occupation is dairying and its large con-
densary plant uses 240,000 pounds of milk daily during the high points of
the season and it averages better than 200,000 pounds daily.     One hundred
people are employed here and there are 60 milk routes.    There are about
125 farmers who deliver their own and their neighbors milk to the plant.
There are also several butter and cheese plants and a pea canning comnpany
established in and about Chilton.
