Even a most superficial study of the South Dakota dairy industry indicated its economic importance to the state. Dairying, though not of major importance, utilizes a relatively huge physical production plant, spread out on most every farm. It includes processing and marketing facilities, of which the creamery and cream station are most important. In 1935, dairying constituted one of the state's more stable industries, providing about 15.7 percent of the gross income of South Dakota farmers. It ranked second to wheat, which accounted for 18.7 percent of the total gross income. All cattle and calves, hogs, and cora are ranked below milk, accounting for 15.5, 11.4, and 10.2 percent of the total gross income, respectively.
