A dairy transfer stand is now part of the HO scale LaserKit line from American Model Builders. The laser-cut wood kit features tab-and-slot construction; peel-and-stick doors, windows, and trim; cast-resin details; and color signs.

Dairy transfer stands date back to the days before electricity was common in the rural United States. Time was of the essence with fresh milk to prevent it from spoiling, meaning daily pickup was required. Individual dairy farmers would build small docks to set milk cans on. Then a driver from the cooperative would gather cans from multiple farms and bring them to a central collection point, similar to the kit’s building and large dock. All the milk cans were then taken to the local railroad station.
