Technology for the Developing Countries

  • J. T. Homewood

The reader, especially if without experience in developing countries, may well ask why a separate chapter, under such a title should be considered necessary in a textbook on the dairy industry. Fresh milk has been a household article, often obtained from one or more animals kept by each family, in much of Asia, the Middle East and Europe since earliest historical times. European immigrants brought cattle to North and South America, and to Australasia, from the 16th century onwards. With their herds came the early dairy technologies of curd and cheesemaking, butter or yoghurt production, long established in Asia and Europe.
