LTD. “, hence the butter brand in ARG: “DAIRYCO” premium & 3 others. developed 5 factories & was main exporter to U.K. willy reynolds.

  2. Interesting Advertisement. This happens to be a farm where my grandfather worked. Before that Hnery Chidley Reynolds was in New Zealand, and before that in Beeny, UK. My father Keith Reyonolds was born in Tandil, Argintina in November 1919 and then was sent to boarding school in UK. I was born in Hampstead England in November 1952. I now live on Cape Cod, USA.
