Dairy is pretty much gone in my area. In the 1920s there were close to 400 dairy farms and half a dozen cheese factories in this township. The end came with the quota system and the switch from cans to bulk tanks.
By the 1990s down to a dozen dairy farms left. 100 years later and there are only 4 farms left shipping milk.
