Lore Alford Rogers (7 February 1875 - 21 March 1975) was an American bacteriologist and dairy scientist. He is credited with discovering that butter made from pasteurized sweet cream over sour ripened cream remained fresher, while suggesting that surplus milk could be sold as concentrated sour milk products.

Lore [pronounced "Lo'-re," rhymes with "story"] Rogers was born in the town of Patten, where his father, Col. Luther B. Rogers, returned home from the Civil War, and became a partner in a prominent lumbering operation, Ayer and Rogers. In retirement he gave back to his own community by co-founding the Patten Lumbermen's Museum.
