In looking for information about the Knowlton Dairy company I found the following:

The original business was sold to Southland Corporation. (

Jim Knowlton graduated from Texas Technological College in 1960 and took over operation of the Knowlton Dairy. Jim Knowlton’s grandfather Ed Knowlton, whose father was a trail driver named Rufus Knowlton, founded the Knowlton creamery in 1908 with twenty cows he had bought on credit.

At the time Jim started, there was 100 head of cattle and sixty milkers, a number which he increased to 600 head of cattle with 300 in the milking herd by 1966.

Lloyd Knowlton, Jim’s father, also worked for the family business and owned much of the land Jim leased in order to increase the size of the operation.
