The pictured 10-gallon milk cans are resting on a wooden platform next to a township road. These wooden stands were built by the dairy farmers who sold their milk to the Pet Milk Company in either New Glarus or Belleville. The previous evenings milk and the next mornings milk were placed in the 10-gallon milk cans. The farmer then would load the cans onto his pickup truck and haul them down his lane to place them on the wooden platform. The contract milk hauler for Pet Milk on his daily route would pick up the cans of milk and deliver them to the processing plant. He would leave the previous days empty cans on the platform for the farmer to reuse. (Photo supplied by the National Historic Cheesemaking Center)
