Private investors have a plan to bring one of the nation’s largest dairy processing facilities in the nation to Michigan.
This means the state’s farmers will be able to cut back on transportation costs potentially starting in 20-20.
Governor Rick Snyder says the new processing plant will bring hundreds of jobs. He says Michigan has the second-most productive cows in the U-S – and we need a more cost-effective way to store all that milk instead of sending it out of state.
“This is a tremendous win for the dairy farmers in our state, for all of Michigan.”
Michigan ranks fifth in the nation for total milk production. The facility north of Lansing will process more than 8-million pounds of milk a day. Construction is expected to begin in September.
