to We havo had a host of enquiries as b th« relative inures of choese verses autfcer m<kit g, e ny?t thp "Dairymfih" ftiifi 'n instance we were asketJ for tn iiTiiuediau- , repy by letter. Al tbis is agrins!; alj rules of ' our 'aiiHtic etiquei.tH, we treated Lbis B ornm unic9tinn a? one of uigency, and ent a, rf ply direct;. For llu benefit of orher er quirurs we gim berewich with our reply:—

The future prospects of cheese in our opinion are immeasurably superior to the pi'ospects for butter, because every civilised country in the world is catering for. the butter market of Eng land, and only Canada caters for the Cheddar cheese.. The supply from Canada is falling off year by year at a greater rate than our supply in creases

There is another reason. The butter business now in England is up against a business proposition. It is being met by advertising, and farmers won't advertise, and consequently they let; the other roan get the business. The Maypole Dairy Co. made £495,000 profit last year selling cocoa , , nut oil batter, and it is likely that during that year they probably spent £50,000 on advertising. That is what tbe butter maker of New Zea'and is up against now If he will not spend raoney on advertising in England, it means that tbe other man is going to get the business. In regard to cheese there is no substitute that'can be boomed by advertising. If you will put up a cbeese factory with a cool curing room, and get the best cheese maker you'can procure for money in New Zealand, and give him and ;ho rest of tbe staff an interest in the profits, you would probab'y get as good a price for yonr cheese or better than, any of the older factories.

One pound of buiter-fat will make 2 60 lbs. of cbeese, and at Ihe present prices, 93/ , this is equal to a payment to the suppliers of 1/8 per Ib. of butter fat. The prices paid out by a typical good North Island cheese and butter factory respective since 1914 are as followerCheese Factory.

WHEY. The "Dairyman's" e&timate of the comparative values of cheese and but ter making does not take into con sideratioii ibe faot that skim utilk is immeasurably more valuable as calf and pig food than whey is, and that the haulage of cream ia a small item compared witb the haulage of milk especially in a billy district such as Banks Peninsula. There is a vast difference between whey fed pigs and cfives from piga and calves fed on skim milk, the stamina of the cattle increasing their market value materially.
