Are cream cans still used ?

I worked one summer in the early 60's at a creamery and of course the farmer's cream used to be shipped in the old cream cans (which are in demand today by collectors and decorators, etc.). I have one here and was wondering, do farmers still use them for shipping cream or is some other method used?

I never get the answers right,I just like to say hi to strangers passing by.How are things in Alberta?Is that where all those geese come from? I try to spare them the effort of the long flight back by stuffing a few in my freezer.

That's called "doing a good turn for everyone every day" or something like that (from Boy Scouts I think). Yup, there's lot's of those geese up in these parts, lots of wild ones and then hundreds upon hundreds of them just a few blocks away at a local pond/park area. They don't even get off the sidewalk when you go for a walk those critters.

Yes sir,,I was a Boy scout..I had two stripes like an Army Corporal..That was a great thing for younguns..I learned a lot there.Those geese get wild down here ..They put up a lot of flak around them.. They are hard to get down out of the air.They must be full of gas.
