New Ulm-based Associated Milk Producers, Inc. (AMPI) recently informed the 130 employees at its Dawson plant that the facility will close and their positions will be eliminated.

The sale of the business to Illinois-based Bay Valley Foods is expected to close in December, and production at the Dawson plant will gradually be transferred to Bay Valley Foods Illinois facility through that time, Schmidt said.

Got milk? Seems that a great majority of these companies doing the layoffs are in Dem strongholds. Kudos to the liberals!
Once upon a time there were dozens of little dairies and creameries in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Amazing how many of these employers are announcing mass layoffs in the two days after the election. Definitely not a coincidence.
I hope they are all Union Obama supporters!
Chins up, libs... It’s EBT card and welfare time!!! Congrats!!!
Now those little dairies and creameries have congomerated into a few large corporate ones and the rest of the land is now strip malls. Progress.
Gee it has not made the list on the Daily Job cuts yet... Welcome to Obamas aMeriKa 2012
Lay them all off. Obamas aMeriKa is a nation of takers and grifters....
A very large coop dairy was located just west of the Twin Cities in Bongards, MN. Into the 80s it was a prominent milk and cheese supplier to Mpls/St. Paul grocery stores. Today, it squeaks along with one line of sliced white cheese which is sold to Burger King.
Way to go MI choke on it OBAMA OBAMA OBAMA
