According to Milk Magazine, Mullins Cheese is picking up eight of the dairies that were recently displaced by Grassland Dairy Products.
At the beginning of the month, Grasslands sent letters to nearly 100 of its producers, telling them they would no longer be able to accept their milk after losing a contract with Canadian buyers of ultra-filtered milk.
Mullins Cheese, which has two plants in central Wisconsin, says the extra 100,000 pounds of milk per day will top them off.
“If we don’t find a home for the milk by May 1, it won’t take very long,” said Mike North, president of Commodity Risk Management Group. “You can’t go very long without having milk move into the marketplace and the operation being cash flowed.”
