The marketing research reports and surveys were conducted either by the association itself or contracted to independent research firms.

Series IV:  Equipment and Machinery, 1856 - c.1980.

Physical Description: 9.3 cu. ft.

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series contains material about dairying and processing equipment, the people that invented them, and the companies that manufactured or distributed them. Document types include company brochures, catalogs, business receipts, ledgers, company histories, service contracts, technical drawings, charts, photographs, posters, artwork and ephemera. Companies well-represented in this series include Coast Creamery Equipment Co., Delaval Corp., and the Sacramento Bottle Exchange. Equipment types offered by these companies include milking machines, cream separators, butter churns, cleaning and sterilizing equipment, and refrigeration and packaging machinery. This series also contains a large number of photocopied patents for mechanical milking devices showing the effort by various inventors to duplicate the motion of human hands and/or the action of suckling calves. These patents span the period from 1856 to 1979. An original typescript of a patent application with the original patent issued in 1941 to C.W. Michaels is also in this series. The vast majority of the patents in this collection are concerned with improving the essential cow-to-machine interface, the teat cup, and with differing methods of extracting the milk through massage, constant suction, and “surge” (pulsed) suction. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) provides a searchable database of patents issued between 1790 and the present at http://www.uspto.gov/patft/ The USPTO has issued more than 600 patents for milking equipment since 1976, and patents specifically for teat cup improvements have been issued as recently as 2005. This collection shows some of the earliest attempts at developing this technology.

Scope and Content Note

Materials are organized into two groups: Equipment and Machinery Companies and Dairy Industry Patents. Arrangement within the first group is alphabetical by company name. Arrangement within the second group is sequential by patent number, which is also chronological order.

Series VII:  Photographic Material, 1885-1978 and undated.

Physical Description: 2 cu. ft.

Series Scope and Content Summary

This series contains identified and unidentified photographs, slides, and negatives of various people, places, dairy cattle, dairy equipment, milk bottles, and modes of transportation pertaining to California’s dairy history and span the period from 1868 to 1980. The folder and individual item descriptions for prints, slides or negatives contained in quotation marks are those ascribed either by the original collector(s) or during previous efforts to catalog the collection and were transposed into this guide. The photographs of individual milk bottles were taken by California State Parks sometime after its acquisition of the collection in 1976 to aid in the cataloging of the actual bottle collection. All 35mm color negatives are stored in negative sheets of seven strips each numbered NS001 to NS008. All 35mm black and white negatives are likewise stored in sheets of seven strips each and are numbered NS020 to NS034, and are accompanied by contact sheets of the images, which serve as the only descriptive tool for the majority of these images. Where possible the negative strips from which photographs in this series were printed are noted within brackets (e.g. [NS020]) following the description. Most, though not all negatives of other formats have been identified. These other formats are 3.5 x 6 or 4 x 5 inches, and 6 x 6 or 6 x 7 centimeters, and mounted 35mm color transparencies.

Scope and Content Note

Photographic prints in this series are arranged into six groups: People, Places, Dairy Cattle, Dairy Equipment, Milk Bottles, and Transportation. Negatives are arranged by film size.
