For Central Dairy, milk delivery is far from a practice of the past.

Instead, it's considered a "long-standing tradition in Jefferson City," according to Shannon Mahoney, the company's operation and sales manager.

The service, which covers about 600 houses in the immediate area over two routes, is not a substantial portion of the company's profits, Mahoney said.
