The North Side Cheese Factory in Monticello was organized in 1933 when 34 farmers signed an agreement among themselves to deliver their milk daily to the factory from which 5 cents per hundred weight was authorized to be deducted to pay expenses and liquidate the bank loan. At the end of 5 years the 5 cent check—off was dropped to 2 cents which paid for maintenance expense plus 7% on stock certificates.
