Approximately 30 percent of the milk produced in Michigan is
utilized in the Class I marketplace (fluid milk). The milk which is
not sold for fluid purposes is processed into other products. MMPA
plays a vital role balancing the Michigan milk market, MMPA buys
milk from their members, selling it in all market classifications.
This not only ensures producers that their milk will be sold, but
it ensures consumers of a steady supply of dairy products.
This market balancing function is possible because of MMPA's manufacturing plants.
