Joining Our Milk Cooperative
We recognize that producers have a choice when it comes to who they select to market their milk. In fact, our cooperative was created by dairy producers who wanted to get back to basics. Once our producers supply the milk, we work diligently to move it to the market efficiently, returning as much revenue as possible back to their dairy farms.
PMI is committed to providing its customers with the best milk available in the Southeast. This goal is accomplished by our producers' focus on milk quality, animal welfare, and herd health. While all milk sold in the United States is safe and wholesome, milk supplied to processors from our supply is guaranteed to be of the highest quality and rBST free. And, our members share a production philosophy rooted in milk quality. PMI requires the following standards for all members:
- Somatic Cell Counts (SCC) of 400,000 or Less
- Standard Plate Counts (SPC) of 25,000 or Less
- Follow Guidelines Outlined in the National Dairy FARM Program
- Certify That All Milk Supplied Comes from Animals Not Treated with rBST
