THE BUTTER SEASON.
Mr. Thornton, dairy produce grader in Auckland, informed a "Star" representative yesterday that as a result of the recent dryness of the weather the quantity of butter coming forward has shown a falling off. Yesterday's beneficial rains will freshen things up again. "On r.he whole," 'Mr. Thornton added, "the season has been a remarkably successful one, and by the end of the financial year— that is, at the end of this month, we |iay expect to find a big increase in butter and cheese over the returns for the previous year, so far as Auckland is concerned. The quality of both butter and cheese has on the whole been very favourable. There may be two more shipments, after which factories and buyers no doubt win store. Seeing the great strides made of late in the dairy industry in Auckland, there can, in my opinion, be no doubt that in a few years' time this will be the first and foremost dairying province in the Dominion. It is most gratifying to see the majority of factory managers in this district taking such a great interest in the manipulation of both articles. They are thoroughly alive to the necessity for turning out the finest article they can."
