Got Milk? Michigan Is About To Have A TON Of It With New Complex
Michigan is about to be eating a lot of cereal, which works out since Battle Creek is the Cereal Capital of the World. News broke over the weekend that Michigan will be getting a $510 Million milk processing complex that will be built in St. Johns. The facility will create about 300 new jobs. According to Fox 17, the complex will include one plant that will process 8 million pounds (3.6 million kilograms) of milk every day into cheese and whey protein powder, and another plant that will use byproducts from the milk operation to make whey products for human consumption and animal feed.
Governor Rick Snyder commented on the news of the complex:
Michigan’s dairy industry is an essential economic driver in our state, and this new investment elevates and expands our potential to rise even higher while bringing new jobs and opportunities to this region.
No doubt that this will come in handy for us down here and will help Michigan's dairy industry.
