Established in 1904, the Makahu Co-operative dairy Company produced butter until 1915 when it converted to cheese production. It went into voluntary liquidation in the early 30s and suppliers transfered to the Stratford Farmers Co-op Dairy Co.
The collection comprises two minute books for May 1912 - July 1928 and for September 1928 - April 1933, as well as a share register for 1903-1924.
