BETTER METHODS OF CHEESE-MAKING
The following article, quoted from the " N*w Zea'and Dai yman," is of interest :— "If there is anything in tha paragraph balow, which we take from the ••Tarannki News" and the authenticity of which we have no reason to doubt, then.it certainly seems the sooner we have a Koyal Commission to enquire into the cheese industry the better. With all the knowledge we have now of how to avoid defects such a* those referred to, there is simply no excuse for faults of tbe kind mentioned. Here is what the " News)" says : —
Some of the cheere factories are confronted with a difficult problem. Having received word from London of the existence of taint in their cheese make, and the consequent unpopularity of the brands, the managers have been instructed to exeroise the greatest care during the process of manufacture. As a result the managers have been rejecting all milk that in their opinion is in any way tainted. With the morning's milk they find ,no fault, but with the overnight's they have I rejected during the course of a month as much as 25 per cent of a dairyman's supply, j This is a serious matter for the supplier, who of course can only feed his pigs and calves with the milk, which, in these days of high prices for land and stock, he does not regard as a very profitable proceeding. 'The fact of the matter i=,' says a South Taranaki dairy, man, 'our land is too rich for cheese making Wo will have to go back to butter making or casein. The be3t cheese will always come from land of second class quality—never from first-class; while the opposite obtains in regard to butter making.' Unless some thing was done whereby his rejected milk could be profitably utilised, our informant
stated that ha would be forcad to stop supply ing after this season and go in for buttermaking on his own account."
