We have about 165 member/owner farms who will produce in excess of 310 million pounds of milk in 2012; the equivalent of 36,046,511 million gallons of milk. Lowville Producers is the largest Dairy Cooperative in the county with over 65% of the milk produced in Lewis County handled through us. Lowville Producers is 40th in size among hundreds of dairy cooperatives in the United States as ranked by Hoards Dairyman; a nationaly recognized industry magazine.
In 2012, Lowville Producer member farms will pumped over $57 million dollars into the local economy in direct milk sales. Six milk trucks pick up at the farms with each truck hauling 3 loads each day. Milk hauling is done by a very dedicated group of drivers. Rain, snow, firigid temeratures, sleet, or hail; the milk gets picked up and delivered.
