The Akaroa Mail. FRIDAY, APRIL 23, 1915. EXTENDING LOCAL INDUSTRY

The prospects for starting a cheese factory in Little River, which is going to result in the local dairjmen getting considerable advances per lb for tbeir buffer fiit, ?pemg to be fairly well* established, and it was expected tbat the canvassers who are getting suppliers will be successful enough to start the factory Tbn Government grader, Mr Oloyton, who wfii -at the meeting of promoters last week, said he thought 600 cows wp c easily sufficient to start the factory. It is estimated tbat there are at least 1000 cows ifl Little River, including tbe Puaha district, ;-nd Okute Valley, and there is every

p-'ospect of this number being consider Hiily amplified by several fresh dairies : startling. The increased prices in jdiiry products will put the cheese market on more than a soIH basis for 'a few year 3at least; while tbe normal ■narket is always good One supplier a Little River intends, starting a dairy :of 100 cows and supplying the fac tory, It has been decided to fix tbe site of the factory at Cooptown, as this would be the most central place for suppliers from Puabs, Terawera Val ley, Western Valley and Okute Valley, When it is considered that the Pigeon Bay factory started two years ago with 300 cows and that this number has gone up to 500, an old established dairying district like that of Little River, should have no difficulty in starting a very large factory. Little River is more fortunate than any other portion of the district in view of the fact that it is close to tbe railway, and Ibeir freight charges would be lighter than in the case of other Peninsula factories. We hope those who are promoting the factory will receive tbe support they deserve, and that it will be the means of starting a very profitabla industry in that portion of tbe district.
