This
/ligh country is, however, eminently euitable for dairying, and the advent of this factory will mean that it will -be utilised for dairies, because the ''■"cream utter separation i<? easily brought to the factory, whereas a large bulk of milk could nob be brought down the hills, Id Akaroa and its surroundings there have been tk number of dairies which have supplied the German Bay Factory, but be carting of the milk over the bill 2%b beeu arduous Now that the new butter faotory is opening a great deal more land ia being utilised for dairy ing in and around A keroa and right , down to the Maori Kaik The Barry's Buy Factory ia also installing a whey

thousand cows milked for the factory, pig and calf rearing will become a big industry. There are many pig 3; reared on the Peninsula now by cheese fae tory suppliers, and these raostlV go to Aldington. It is estimated ithat by baviog a local baoon factory the caving ■in transit aiid value of the pigs when sold as bacon from the factory I will be a very considerable one, 1 We can, therefore, look forward to a large industry that will grow with the new butter factory. It eeomg tnafc th(3 new factory ia going to be very well supported, as it certainly should be and the butter production of the Peninsula is going to be no email item in the Peninsula district's revenue The new factory will not only increase the producing powers of the district, bufc jfc will still further encourage dairying,- for which' our land seems very suitable, and ie will raise the land values of the higher country in the vicinity.
