R. Woodall, manager of the firm. The new equipment, includes two, 2.ri0-gallon vats for the pasteurizing department, and a high-speed refrig erating plant, which will supplement the three machines now in use. Tho two modern vats will be used instead of the 2tl0-gallon vat now in use. When the new equipment is in stalled, the capacity of the plant will be more than doubled. The new equipment is expected to Ve in opera tion by the fifteenth of April, accord ing to Mr. Woodall, A new boiler has just been placed in the building. The new boiler is of the marine type, and is 2S-horsepow-er, and takes the place of a 15-horse-power boiler. The plant now has three crtld stor age rooms. The temperature in one of the rooms is maintained at IM de grees, and in the hardening rooms the temperature remains about twenty degrecfi Is'low zero. Although the plant was opened less than twenty months ago, a number of changes have been made. Over $(!, 0(10 was sHnt on the plant when all- WaynesviHe milk was taken over by them, and must of the new equip ment now being installed is for the purpose of handling more milk. Hesides milk, the plant has a ca pacity of ten gallons of ice cream every ten minutes, and an uivliniited capacity for making butter, cottage cheese and fancy ice cream molds. Several weeks ago, the manage ment of the firm, started a new phase of the business that of gath ering eggs along the cream routes. This has worked up to tlx' point where about 1,000 dozen of eggs per week are being brought in. The eggs are not placed on storage, but immediate ly put on the market. The farmers are paid weekly for the cream and eggs, instead of month ly as is the case with many cream eries. In addition to the egg Imsiness, Mr. Woodall slated that an "experiment station" was being built on the lot adjoining the plant, in which a flock of 150 White lCghorn hens would be kept for laying. These hens will be carefully checked and accurate rec ords made with two different groups. One will be fed milk products anil butter milk to see the effect -on laying. Another phase of the "experiment, station" will he milk foil chickens fop market, he stated. Hi cause of the had 'weather, work on the chicken house and yard has been held up, but workmen were busy this week v-ompleting the job. The. results from feeding the lay- inir hcn.s milk will be given to the farmers, iti order that they may use skiiu milk for poultry feeding, and increase the. size of their laying (locks at ho additional-cost lor food.
