Omaha Dairy Association stock certificate circa 1885 (Nebraska)
Great dairy collectible. Perfect vignette of a large dairy cow. Unissued and not cancelled. Dated 188__ but circa 1885 from issued examples.
Incorporated 1885 in Omaha NE, the company consolidated several dairy operations in South Omaha. The company was located close to the feed lots and slaughter houses of the area which provided a closed end of their business. The association delivered milk to the city and provoked contempt from smaller dairy farmers who felt the group was unfair for city licensing exemptions.
