IMPERIAL COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, DAIRYING FOR PROFIT

El Centro, California: Imperial County Board of Trade, circa 1930. This pictorial brochure cites statistics predicting a population boom necessitating the reclamation of arid land by irrigation for farming to feed the 20 million people that will be living on the Pacific slopes by 1950: “If you can make profits in dairying anywhere, you can make them in Imperial Valley. Green pastures all the year ‘round, plenty of water and plenty of sunshine, no cold winter weather, ample markets that buy all you can produce, virtual immunity from stock diseases, and above all, a rapidly expanding population that constantly demands more dairy products – these are the guarantees that the Imperial Valley dairy industry is profitable, stable and permanently established.”

Illustrated with 14 black and white photographs of farming operations. Printed in black, yellow, and blue on both sides of a 24” x 9” sheet that folds to 4” x 9” (12 panels). An ink stamp on the front panel indicates this example was distributed by the California Tourist Association, Sacramento. Light stain to the top corner of half the panels; otherwise very good. OCLC locates only four copies (UC Davis, Berkeley, Irvine, and the California State Library). Item #73822
