Carnation Research/Stock Farm

Established by E. A. Stuart in 1909, to breed sires to improve the dairy herds of the Pacific Northwest. Here were registered Holstein-Friesians. In 1936, Carnation Ormsby Butter King produced 38,606 pounds of milk, an average of 50 quarts a day. A statue of a former world-champion cow, also produced at Carnation, is at the entrance. Still very much intact, the complex today serves as a regional training center for Nestlé USA.
