Wuethrichs Report Huge Gain In Output Of Butter

John Wuethrich and sons, John D. and Allen, who conduct the Wuethrich creamery at Greenwood, famous in this part of Wisconsin for its fine butter, have been enjoying a phenomenal growth in their business at a time when most businesses are complaining of declining activities, according to John D. Wuethrich.

"At present our creamery is working night and day," said Mr. Wuethrich, "producing more than 3,600 pounds of butter daily which is sold throughout the area bounded on the north by Medford, on the south by Neillsville, on the west by Eau Claire and on the east by Wausau. During the past few weeks our plant has taken in 16 cheese factories in the territory, amounting to a total equivalent of more than 90,000 pounds of milk daily. Low cheese prices, have resulted in these cheese factories finding it more profitable to sell their cream to a creamery than make it into cheese.

"The increase in our production amounts to 100 per cent and two men have been added to the crew, making a total of 11 employees in the creamery."

It is estimated by Mr. Wuethrich that his plant is now taking the output of 640 patrons. The Wuethrich creamery is a modest looking affair of rather unpretentious size, and it is only due to skillful organization and management that it is able to take care of its immense present production.
