Foreign cheese industry of Wisconsin, pp. 43-45
SOUTHERN WIS. CHEXSI.NIAKERS' & DAIRY:\II N's ASS'N. 45 conditions I colltril)ute to the sole fact of our swiss cheese market system of this state, which looks to me as the spoils of this industry. Nothing shown in the present se stem that would have an! influence towards encouragemleAt of higher qualification of cheesemakers, equipments and qualiti. This system I regard as a "catch as catch can" proposition with no good intent, but a selftish -reed for the almighty dollar immediate at sight, all at the expense of the industrY. The grading system for buyin- cheese that once stood like a pillar for the maintenance of quality has long since fallen in the hands of craftv dealers bv whose methods the lumping system was brought into vogue. Green and its surrounding counties has become the home of the foreign cheese industry of America; tel years agro they formed an association known as tile Southern \Wisconsin Cheesemakers' and Dairymen's Association, which with its wonderful growth has today 4.1\ members on its membership list. Let us hope that thru the aid of the Southern Wis- consin Cheesemakers' and Dairymen's Association and this association whose purposes are to promote the dairy interests that once more the grading system be established in our swiss market and the lumping system to vanish out of existance. I may go on and point out to you further importance of our foreign cheese industry. I could furnish you still greater statistics with reliable figures by taking in that district embraced outside of the Green County District but deem it hardly necessary when we take into consideration that this industry only a few deca(les l)ack was yet sleeping in its shoes of infancy and today we find that it developed to such vast importance in the state of WVisconsin as to attract the attention of the entire dairy world.
