Butter: Butter making, like cheese, has a long history.

Ealry butter factory

It too has gone through a transition over the centuries, from the farmhouse to the automated production lines of the factory. Present day factories are capable of producing vast amounts of butter compared to the now small quantities of the farmhouse variety. Factory churns will make perhaps 1.5 tons of butter in just one session, and will usually have several of these huge churns operating at once.
