Date Issued:

Abstract:
This study presents the rapid progress made by the dairy industry in Florida over the past decades after the first State Law dealing specifically with this industry was passed in 1929. The Florida Jersey Cattle Club and the Florida Guernsey Cattle Club have provided dairymen with the opportunity to establish pure bred herds of both breeds containing the best blood lines. The advantage of Florida's mild climate, and long growing seasons of grass and forage crops suitable for dairy animals have made possible for dairymen to find ways of making dairying a profitable industry in Florida.
