Glanbia, Select Milk Procurers Inc. and Dairy Farmers of America have announced construction of their new joint milk processing plant will start next month in St. Johns, Michigan.

John Dardis with Glanbia tells Brownfield the $470 million cheese and whey facility will be able to process more than eight million pounds of milk per day.  “You’re talking about 100,000 cows supplying the volume need for the eight million pounds per day and all told, that’s about 20 percent of dairy production in Michigan.”

The plant will be able to produce about 300 million pounds of cheese annually.
