    Vermont Dairy Industry Transportation Plans, 1943 - 1945.
    Series ID: PRA-412 (Click for Index) Location: State Archives
    Extent: 2 cubic feet, 3 microfilm reels. Access: Open
    Scope: This collection contains the Vermont Dairy Industry's transportation plans for the more efficient utilization of motor vehicles and equipment used in the transportation of dairy products. Plans were approved by the Vermont Dairy Industry Transportation Advisory Committee in conjunction with the state and national Offices of Defense Transportation. Summary sheets describe the various milkshed areas, the number and location of plants and producers, the number of haulers and the location of their routes, proposed relocations of routes, the effect of regulatory laws, haulers suspending operations and a general statement of participation. The collection also includes maps of county milk producers (most of which were prepared by the Federal Milk Market Administrator and published by the Vermont Highway Department in 1943), showing milk transportation routes as they were and following revision. There are also hauler surveys noting the name of the hauler and the names and dairy numbers of those along a particular route. Other information might include correspondence, much of which represents protests by various dairy farmers to the new routes, and lists of producers and vehicles (with can capacity and route mileage) delivering milk to various co-ops, dairies and creameries. Notes: Arranged alphabetically by milkshed area. The maps included in this collection are color-coded and thus do not translate well to microfilm. Although these maps were filmed for preservation purposes, the originals should be consulted. See PRA-371 for source material.
