This video tells the story of an object which revolutionised the dairy industry in NSW last century by vastly improving the cleaning of dairy equipment. Invented in 1928 by Frank Moorhouse, many thousands of these dairy boilers were manufactured on the south coast and sold state-wide, greatly improving the quality of milk produced by the numerous small dairy farms.
Filmed in Kangaroo Valley, the video is co-presented by the inventor's son Arthur Moorhouse and fourth generation Kangaroo Valley dairy farmer Garth Chittick. It was filmed at the Pioneer Farm Museum and at the Chittick family's farm ("Ellerslie"). The video was produced and directed by Libby Turnock with Paul Turnock as cameraman. It includes some footage from the 1951 film "Capacity Smith", also shot in Kangaroo Valley.
