 DFA Producing Dry Milk in New $85M Nevada Plant  

Dairy Farmers of America's new state-of-the-art plant in Fallon, Nevada, has begun producing dry milk, the majority of which will be exported to Asia. 

 

The $85 million plant, which is already producing thousands of 50-pound bags, is the Dairy Farmers first in Northern Nevada that can produce up to two million pounds of powdered milk per day when running at full capacity.


“As a milk marketing cooperative focused on our dairy farmer owners, we have a responsibility and an obligation to explore new options to bring our members greater returns,” said Mark Korsmeyer, executive vice president of DFA, in a statement.


It will be a couple of years before that number is reached. But once the plant is at full capacity, it will produce approximately 250,000 pounds of dried dairy ingredients daily, or 90 million pounds annually, mostly for the Chinese and other Asian markets.
