I CLEMSON EXTENSION WORK J
Th<* creamery promoters sharks have
Invaded section of the Piedmont Belt
of this stale and we understand have
succeeded In organizing at least one
creamery company and are now at
work in other Communities. In the
sections in which they are working It
is safe to say that there are ut?t
enough cows to supply the local de
mand for milk, cream and butter, and
yet the people have been led to be
lieve, that a plant depending upon a
good milk supply for success, can be
profitably operated. To mislead peo
ple Into such an enterprise Is nothing
hut deceit and graft and the people
in every community of the State
should be on guard against such deal
ers In "gold bricks."
Georgia lias Just passed through
a find and expensive creamery experi
ence. During 1908 creamery promo
ters of Chicago organized seven cream
eries in various parts of the State
costing $4,960. to $('?,000. Of these
seven creameries only one is now In
operation and it is financed by a cap
italist. All the remainder have per
ished from lack of support. At some
of these plants not more than forty
or fifty cows suppled milk while for
profitable operation the milk from five
hundred cows of average quality is
required. One of these creameries
lost seventeen hundred dollars in a
few months time, while the failure of
others showed either that no money
was made or there was a loss.
The establishing of creameries in
sections where there is practically no
dairy interest and where local markets
pay inori' for dairy products than a
creamery can possibly pay, Is absolute
folly as is witnessed by the experience;
of Georgia, Kentucky and other states.
Yet the people are being misled and
deceived by smooth tongiled sellers of
machinery who charge about llfty per
cent, more for their machinery than
it can be purchased for elsewhere.
That creameries are profitable 110
one denies and that samples cited by
promoters in proof of this profit may
be true, but It should be taken into
consideration that these profits were
made in dairy localities places where
the dairy is the money crop and where
most every fanner has a herd of cows
and understands how to handle those
COWS. In such sections creameries are
necessary to handle the milk from
these cows and to find a market for
the products. Such conditions do not
< xist in South Carolina. Cows are
scarce and poor in quality and more
than that they cannot be bought in
sufficient number. Local demands for
milk cannot he supplied even at a
goo price ami farmers know very lit
tle about how to handle cows to the
best advantage and mos: often do not
care to learn. A creamery canned af
ford to pay more than one and a halp
dollars per hundred pounds for milk
and until the farmers learn how to
produce it. in a profit for this price I
it is foolish io expect a creamery to
be a success.
If any section of the State is In
terested in a creamery it should care- j
fully investigate the milk supply first
BP then form a company of interested
in. ouy the machinery necessary to
V'nUp it at a reasonable price and be
gin operations on a practical business
basis and not be rushed Into an eiiter
prise pushed forward by a set of men
who have no interest in its success
further than the sale or the machinery
at exorbitant prices. Banks and other
business undertakings first investigate
the possibilities of success before of
fices are erected, but the doctrine of
the creamery promoter is to get the
building; and equipment first regard
less of other conditions.
The Extension Department of Clem,
son college will be glad to visit any
Community interested in creameries
and advise them as to the requirements
for successful operation and assist
tlx in in every Way in establishing such
an enterprise should the outlook for
success prove favorable. Plans and
Specifications for creameries can be
obtained free of OOSt from the I'. S.
Department of Agriculture.
With all Of these things at their j
comand no community should be mis
led and caused to lose money by men
who seek their own gain only. Where
creameries are promoted and fall the
dairy interests are set back many
