Ask Your Merchant for Our Milk
We’ve gone to considerable expense in giving McGregor users of milk one of the most modern dairies in Central Texas,
The dairy was built under plans and specifications of the State Health Department... We extend a cordial invitation
to the general public to come out and see and inspect the new barn and equipment. Dairy is located three miles
northeast of McGregor. You will be welcomed at any time and we are expecting you to pay the plant a visit.
Our milk is strictly Grade A. However, for a short
while, and until our order for Grade A caps, and
bearing our name reaches us, plain caps will be
used. Caps should be here within a few days,
On account of the shortage of labor, it will be im-
possible to make house-to-house delivers at the
present, so ask yoyr grocery for Allen Dairy Milk.
We will appreciate you asking for our milk, as increase sales will afford an opportunity for expansion in our plant.
