Since 1910 the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station has taken an active part in assisting the farmers in the organization and erection of creameries.
The early creameries planned by the Iowa station in cooperation with the various creamery organizations were satisfactory at that time. Emphasis was placed primarily on sanitation, convenience, durability and economy in construction. These factors are not ignored today but are rather more strongly emphasized . In addition, much emphasis is placed on the appearance of the building, since the creamery of today is often centrally located in the town and is one of the important business institutions of its community, so that it should have an appearance in harmony with the great industry of which it is a part.
