CWT Progressing in Achieving Membership Goal

April 1, 2011

Cooperatives Working Together (CWT) continued to make progress towards its membership goal of getting a minimum of 75% of the nation’s milk supply investing in CWT for 2011 and 2012.

CWT announced last week that Bongards Creameries, in Bongards, Minnesota, has joined as a new cooperative member for the 2011-2012 membership period. This brought the total number of CWT members to 35 cooperatives (listed below), and 134 independent producers. With Bongards Creameries on board, the current level of total participation rose to 67% of eligible milk. The 2¢ investment will not be initiated until the 75% goal is reached.
