PER CENT PERFECT
j Brevard has just cause for being
pround of the two principal dairies
I operating here and furnishing milk
I to the citizens, as indicated in a re
port made by the health department
| of Henderson county. The report, re
ceived here Wednesday, shows that
Dr. M. E. Coyle made inspection anil
survey of the Sunnyside Dairy anfl
the Eastview Farms Dairy on May
13, being here under direction of the
State Board o1' Health.
An offic'al rating was given the
dairies of 98. which is said to be about
as high score as is eve:r made in dair
ies. In fact, it is almost perfect. The
report, which is ?? lengthy document,
shows the great amount of work ani
the constant care that must be given
in dairy work to make such high score
as that made by the local dairies.
To produce and deliver Grade A
milk from the dairy to the consumer
is no easy task, yet pure milk is an
essential. The report u rge? the public
to realize the immense amount ol
work and care required to deliver
Grade A. milk to the consumer. This
kind of service is especially fine in
a r?sort community, and the grading
won by the local dairies should be
come a strong factor in the argu
ments used by the Chamber of Con
nie rce in asking people to spend their
vacations in Brevard.
