Cooper Stepping Down at FarmFirst Dairy Co-op
USAgNet - 12/08/2017

The Wisconsin-based FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative will soon be looking for a new leader. The company's board of directors has announced that General Manager David Cooper will resign effective December 31 to spend more time with family.

Cooper joined Family Dairies USA in 2006 as its general manager and was instrumental in the process of merging the company with Milwaukee Cooperative Milk Producers and Manitowoc Milk Producers Cooperative in 2013.

"The Board cannot thank David enough for his years of service and immense dedication to the cooperative and the dairy industry as a whole," said FarmFirst Board President John Rettler. "He has put in countless hours, pouring over Farm Bill and dairy policy legislation, doing everything he could to help support Midwest dairy farmers. The cooperative will certainly miss him, but we wish him and his family the very best."

Rettler says his organization will now begin the process of finding a new general manager.

The cooperative represents farms in Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois and Indiana through policy bargaining, dairy marketing services, laboratory testing opportunities and industry promotion.
