LITTLE RIVER CHEESE FACTORY.
DECISION TO ERECT FAOTORY REACHED.*
The dairy farmers of Little Biver have accepted the proposition made by Mr Bacon, of Gore, to ereot a cheese factory at Coop , town, Little River, and pay all the suppliers Is 4d per lb for butter-fat provided the sup pliers take it over at cost price at the end of tbe 1915-16 season. The interest Mr Baoon represents received tery good support frem the Little River dairymen, acd it ie expected the supply to the factory will be exceptionally good. With such a guarantee for their first year's supply the Little Biver dairy farmers should have a profitable season, though bad they decided to carry out the construction of the factory them* selves they would probably have been able to pay out to suppliers joat as large a sum as the present promoters of the faotory. If the ruling price of cheese is maintained throughout the coming season a co-opera-tive company would easily have been able to pay out Is 4d at the end of the 1915-16 season, A recent report from tbe Home market says;— Cheese, demand good, sup* plies moderate Quotations New Zealand white and coloured 98s to 100s. There is no reason to believe that these prices will be much reduced for the next twelve months, so that dairy farmers can look forward to a splendid season.
