Saturday 24 July 1920, The Sydney Morning Herald

GLEN INNES.-The annual meeting of the Red Range Butter Factory was held on Wednesday. The annual report showed that during the past 12 months 250,458lb of cream had been received, for which suppliers were paid £9776/17/9. The butter manufactured totalled 120,330lb, of which 112,773lb were choicest grade. Butter sales realised £13,000/1/11. The year’s operations showed that 10,383lb more butter were manufactured than in the previous 12 months, and that £2927/16/6 more money was received. The following were elected directors: Theo. Farlow, Robt. J. Wilson, Wm, Walmsley, Lionel Williamson, Geo. Marshall, Eric H, Mitchell, and Jno. Lawler. Owing to the promising outlook from n personal point of view, and the fact that the Imperial Government has agreed to purchase all surplus butter to March 31 next year £40/ per cwt., dairymen are considering the question of increasing the numbers of their herds. It is more than likely that farmers who have not hitherto touched dairying will stock a few cows and become suppliers of cream to the factory.
