tho idoa provails that Vermont excels in

by buttor as to bo almost lost sight

creamorios aud cheeso factorics to flnd
so many of tho last.
Tho total number amounts to 71. Of
theso 12 aro not credited with tho num
bor of cows. For 59 factories tho num
borofcows given amounts to 17,301.
Allowing 250 cows to bo tho averago for

Tho number as givon from 0S creameries

an avorago of 250 cows to a creamery,
tho1 total number would bo 52,790 as
credited to croamcries. Added to this
thoso contrihutcd to cheeso making
would incroaso tho total numhnr to nvnr
