Wisconsin Ag Connection - 09/28/2023

Dairy producers in Wisconsin have the opportunity to tour three dairy processors on October 26, 2023. The tour will include guided tours of the facilities and discussions with processors to understand their businesses and build stronger partnerships.

The tour will depart from Fox Valley Tech – Chilton Regional Center in Chilton, Wis., at 8:00 a.m. and return at 3:45 p.m. Transportation, materials, and lunch will be provided.

Tour stops will include:

Henning's Cheese, Kiel, Wis.: See how the fourth-generation family cheese company produces award-winning cheddar and Colby cheeses and visit the on-site store and museum.

Lamers Dairy, Appleton, Wis.: The Lamers family has processed and sold top-quality milk for more than 100 years. Tour the facility that processes milk in plastic bottles and glass bottles, as well as whipping cream and half and half.

Agropur, Luxemburg, Wis.: The 85,000 square foot facility receives 3.75 million pounds of milk each day to make cheese and dairy ingredients like whey-protein isolate, permeate, and more.

"As dairy producers, we work every day to produce a delicious, wholesome product that our customers need and want. Our customer — the processor — takes our raw product and creates a masterpiece," said Brady Weiland, Columbus, Wis., dairy producer and PDPW board treasurer. "The PDPW Dairy Processor tours will be a great opportunity to see the facilities of three leading dairy processors to see how they produce top quality cheese, milk and dairy ingredients and learn more about the challenges they face."

This tour is a valuable opportunity for dairy producers to learn more about the processing side of the dairy industry and to build relationships with processors.
