This scrapbook documents a milk quality improvement campaign in Mississippi, focusing on Booneville and Macon, including numerous newspaper clippings from the Booneville Banner, the Booneville Independent, the Tupelo Daily Journal, and the Macon Beacon. The campaign was a coordinated effort of the Kraft Food Company and the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and targeted dairy farmers who supplied milk to Kraft's Mississippi dairy plants. Thirty-three black-and-white and color photographs document problems in dairy production as well as state efforts to improve milk quality. Images include dairy farm families and workers; milk trucks and milk carts loaded with milk cans; dairy buildings; classroom scenes of milk quality improvement courses taught to dairy farmers; and dairy cattle.
