“The sawmill at left

areas of Minnesota
and Wisconsin
during the last few
decades of the 19th
century”
Duluth, MN
In the 1850s
The earliest migrants
to Minnesota were of
Finnish origin. They favored
the northeastern region of
the state; it most resembled
their homeland.
By the 1950s
the supply of the
bounteous stands of
virgin old-growth pine
by this time had been
all but depleted in this
northeastern quarter.

SAWMILLS
PULP & PAPER
OSB PLANTS
Sawmills
though originally
provided dimensional
lumber have been
reduced to a niche
market in providing
poles and pallets.
"Minnesota is home to more
fast-growing wood products
companies than any other
state in the nation.“
By: Jim Petersen
Pulp and paper
industries are an
environmental compliment
by collecting and
converting residual
sawmill waste to pulp —
and then to paper.
Sappi's paper mill
in Cloquet.
OSB plants
are continually developing
alternatives to plywood,
or even dimensional
lumber with a composition
of wafered-wood used in
building industries.
From new logging
practices has come new
panel making capabilities.
One of these very
popular products is the
“oriented strand board.”
It allows 100 percent
utilization of the
harvested timber.
The milk

This dairy farm was
established in the
late 1800s.
To provide for the
growing herd, they
built a 60’x 114’
barn with wooden
stanchions for 100
cows, all of which
were milked by hand.
Winona, MN
In the 1850s
German immigrant settlers came
up the Mississippi River. They built
the city on a transportation system
for shipping wheat which became
the nation’s fourth largest.
By the 1950s
After the collapse of the lumber
industry as well as the declining
wheat crops, made way for dairy
farming in this southeastern
quarter.

DAIRY FARMS
MILK RECEIVING
MILK PROCESSING
Dairy farms
The typical family farm is
largely non-existent today;
however, this pastoral scene
can still be found on a
scenic drive in the country.
Today there is a new
breed of dairy farmer,
gone are the days of
the family farm. Most
operations are multimillion dollar agribusinesses, just as
this put up by an area
university to teach
dairying to a new
generation.
Milk receiving
went from horse-drawn
carriages to town to the
milkman who made his
regular rounds as either a
shipper for the dairy, or
receiver for the farmer.
Today milk is transported over long distances
in 70,000 gallon polished stainless steel
tanker trailers, trucked by independent
contractors for the farmer and co-operative.
Milk processing
with the commercialization
of dairy industry came the
necessary quality standard
regulations, packaging and
promotion of a perishable
product.
Today, from what
once was a small
family concern has
become a multibillion dollar
industry of
pasteurizing, and
homogenizing and
further bottling the
millions of gallons
of milk.

Crookston, MN
In the 1850s
Fur traders were the only
inhabitants of this northwestern
quarter of the state. In fact it
was not even part of the United
States until 1863. By 1876 it
was another railroad station.
By the 1950s
Millions of board feet of
lumber had been floated
downstream. Now they would
float huge grain harvests in
this northwestern quarter to
the rail yards.

SUGAR BEETS
SOYBEANS
WHEAT
Sugar beet crops
The Scandinavian and German
immigrant farmers found the
sugar beet was a good cash crop
to use in their crop rotational
strategies.
Minnesota, what
once the wheat
capital of the
world, has been
decimated in the
1950s because of
wheat rust. The
only appreciable
wheat crop are
being harvested
in the Red River
Valley.
Soybean growers
has benefited everything from
hamburger to paint from
the efforts made to
genetically improve
their need its
these markets.
Soybeans are another cash crop that
has developed and being bounteously
harvested in the Red River Valley.
Wheat crops
In the early days, once
the land was cleared,
the prairie tamed,
wheat then grew like
weeds.
Minnesota’s
claim of being the
wheat capital of
the world, was
put out in the
1950s because of
wheat rust. The
only significant
wheat crops yet
being harvested
are found in the
Red River Valley.
