Historical information

These stirring rods with long handles and base referred to as a dasher were common in the dairy industry. They were made to agitate milk or cream in milk cans and were used on dairy farms and in old creameries. They helped to cool the milk and stop it from separating. They were used on the properties of the Conway and Lemke families in Wodonga.


These items are significant as they are representative of tools used in the early dairy industry and were owned by families in Wodonga.
