The MILK REPORTS provided a record of the production of milk and the cows that provided the milk at Pine Mountain Settlement School Dairy. Each of the cows’ names was listed and the amount of milk in gallons and/or pounds were recorded twice a day by the Dairy crew on a large chart that was posted in the Barn.

The Dairy was a vital part of the health of the School as well as its educational programs. In operation from the first year of the School until the end of the boarding school in 1949, the cows maintained by Pine Mountain provided a source of income and a farm classroom that proved to be invaluable to the students who received training and discipline in this industrial training environment.

The Pine Mountain Family Album of 1944 further describes the project and its impact on the School and community:

The Pine Mountain Dairy has one of the larger Ayrshire herds of the state. Our foundation stock was introduced about 20 years ago and since that time we have developed several leading cows. Our fourteen milking cows keep us in milk the year round and, through the vacation time surplus cream is turned to butter. Our herd sire is available to our community folk, and most of the neighbors have at least one good grade cow which came from the herd.
