LOCALDAIRIES 98 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.
