This is the story of the New Zealand dairy industry, of a unique commercial enterprise that has attained the status of a multinational, of the immigrants who created it and gave it the character that has determined its course over the years. It is a story of the industry's history, of the difficulties it has encountered over the years, of the ways it has changed to overcome those problems out on the farms, in the dairy factories and in the marketing sphere where the Dairy Board holds sway. It is a remarkable story not known to many outside the industry, told by a former member of the editorial staff of the N.Z. Dairy Exporter and later Director of Information at the Dairy Board.
