Tumut Butter Factory

Tumut Butter Factory

Adelong Road


On the last day of September this year the Co-operative butter Factory manufactured two tons more butter than for the corresponding day of last year; although for the month there was a falling off. However, the recovery has been wonderful, and the supplies are so heavy that the manager (Mr. Bradley) expects that over fifty tons of butter will be manufactured this month, As last week the output was ten tons.

Mr. Bradley says that the dairying industry is now firmly established here, and the supplies should be continuous now that the farmers are going in for the making of ensilage. He thinks that the prospects would be even better if the farmers would persevere more with lucerne growing for he believes that where maize can be successfully grown any fodder should succeed. The soils of the Tumut Valley and the Hunter are very much alike, and the Hunter is famous for its lucerne. Pipers, Tobaccos, Cigars, Cigars Cigarettes and all Smokers' requiste at bedrock prices at W. W. Burkinshaw's.- (Ref- The Tumut Advocate and Farmers & Settlers' Adviser (NSW : 1903 - 1925)(about) Previous issue Tuesday 4 October 1910 Page 2).
