Favorite Recipes from America's Dairyland, American Dairy Assocation of Wisconsin, undated but I'd put it at about the 1960's considering the clothing of the illustrated people, paperback with plastic spiral binding, much cover wear, dog-eared pages and I believe I recall the discord when my brother made a crayon mark on each of the first two pages.
