Mormon Dairy

Between 1876 and 1886, Hyrum Judd, under the direction of Lot Smith, supervised a Mormon Dairy one mile northeast near Dairy Spring.

Beginning with a herd of 115 cows. Large quantities of butter and cheese were produced. During the 1880's the herd almost doubled in number, and dairy products were delivered to residents of distant Brigham City, Sunset, and St. Joesph, Arizona.

Judd closed the dairy in 1886 and moved his family to the Mormon colony at Chuichupa, Chihuahua, Mexico.
