We give below the floor plans and a sketch of our state butter and cheese factory. The building and all its appur-entances including apparatus and machinery has cost seventeen thousand dollars. It has capacity to manufacture forty thousand pounds of milk per day, affords facilities for the instruction of one hundred students in all the practical details of making butter and cheese, and for a thorough study of the principles which govern these operations. The commerical success of the plant is well illustrated by the fact that we are already receiving daily from 16000 to 17000 pounds of milk. We teach how to make butter and cheese by making them. The dormitories accommodate 50 students.
