Iowa Cheese Plant Manager Keynotes Ag United’s Annual Meeting

Iowa Cheese Plant Manager Keynotes Ag United’s Annual Meeting

 

This week, Agropur Cheese Plant General Manager Tim Czmowski keynoted Ag United’s Annual meeting. He told the group, there’s a great opportunity to grow the dairy industry in the South Dakota Iowa region. Czmowski says dairy product demand is continuing to grow.

Czmowski says Agropur’s Northwest Iowa plant is producing cheese at a rapid capacity and hoping to expand in the near future doubling their current operation.

He says to double their operation they need more milk and more dairies in the region so they’re working with farmers in both Iowa and South Dakota to try and accomplish that.

Czmowski says if they can restore 30,000 cows to that number they can fill their expansion needs.
