Here is a drawing of the large CAle Dairy Products
plant in Wilkesbort^ which has beenl completed and will
open Oil Friday, May 1, if all machinery can be inatall-
i(ed by that date. The plant will provide a market for
all the milk which can be produced in northwestern
North Carolina. Scores of milk routes will operate in
gathering the milk from farms. Location of the plant
in this section is expected to mark the beginning of a
great era of agricultural progress. In addition to pro
viding a market for milk, the company will purch^
surplus eggs in the low egg price season, thus holding
up the market price on one of the most important agri
cultural products in the state.
