The current 50 items is stuff they plan to do by the end of next year. There might be another 50 items the year after next. If you look at the list there are quite a few important things missing:

1. refrigeration
2. textile machinery (spinning, weaving)
3. sowing machine

Those are the critical ones that I think they'll have to add in the next wave of stuff they build. Otherwise they'll have all the milk they get with their milking machine but have nowhere to refrigerate it and even Missouri is a bit cold to be running around naked all year round :o
