MACPHERSON, David Murdoch, Canadian dairyman, born in Lancaster township, Glengarry, 17 November, 1847. He was educated at Lancaster high-school, engaged in farming till 1868, and in 1870 began to make cheese from the milk of eight cows. In 1873 he established a factory, and in 1887 he had seventy factories, receiving the milk of 25,000 cows, and manufactured about 5,000,000 pounds of cheese. In 1875 Mr. Macpherson received the first prize as champion ploughman of the province of Ontario, in 1886 was elected president of the Dairymen's association of eastern Ontario and of the Glengarry farmers' institute, and the same year was commissioned by the government of Ontario to represent the dairy interests of that province at the Colonial industrial exhibition in London in that year. He has taken out six patents for inventions in improved and original cheese-manufacturing machinery, has made several discoveries in the process of cheese-making, and in 1887 constructed an improved model which, it is claimed, has reduced farm barn building to a science. He was for a time corresponding editor of the Hamilton " Live-Stock Journal," and edited the "Cheese-Makers' Manual" (Montreal, 1886).
