We are the 2,000 farm families and 1,200 employees of Associated Milk Producers Inc. (AMPI), a dairy marketing cooperative owned and governed by dairy farmers. In 2017, our dairy farmer-owners marketed 5.7 billion pounds of milk, resulting in $1.7 billion in sales for the cooperative.
Our dairy farmer-owners produce high-quality milk on family farms in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and North Dakota. Our dairy farmers also own AMPI’s eight Midwest-based manufacturing plants where skilled employees use members’ milk to produce 10 percent of the nation’s American-type cheese, butter, dried whey and sliced American cheese. Our award-winning dairy products are marketed to foodservice, retail and food ingredient customers.
