Prairie Farms Dairy Inc. is investing nearly $29 million in a state-of-the-art addition to its Battle Creek facility.

It will be Prairie Farms’s only bottling plant that will produce ultra-high-temperature pasteurized milk products, which will give them additional shelf life.

“The dairy business is changing,” said Tom Davis, the general manager of Michigan for Prairie Farms. “We feel we need to be in other segments of the fluid milk business, so we’re adding an extended shelf life plant to our existing fresh milk plant.”

The farmer-owned cooperative is made up of more than 900 farm families throughout the Midwest and operates 44 production plants.
