Dairying in the south central Pennsylvania area is alive
and well, according to Maryland Cooperative Milk
Producers, Inc.
During 1975 MCMP members in Adams, Chester, Lan
caster and York Counties marketed more than 69 million
pounds of milk with a value of more than $6.5 million.
Through the first four months of 1976 dairymen in this same
area (approximately 120 MCMP members according to
Cooperative records) have marketed more than 24,000,000
pounds of milk valued at more than $2.6 million
The bulk of the milk hauling for this membership area is
handled through the MCMP’s own hauling division with its
headquarters at Hereford, Md. During the past year more
than 50 million pounds of milk produced in the area by MCMP
member herds were hauled on MCMP owned trucks and
delivered to dairies in Maryland and Pennsylvania. In ad
dition to helping to establish fair milk hauling charges that

High return per acre
Even though Royal MH-30 is
significantly more efficient, the
cost is surprisingly low.
Because good sucker control
increases crop value, many
growers are experiencing
as much as $2O returned for
every dollar invested.

case of trouble or more often to correct a situation before it
becomes a problem.
Local members of the MCMP have scored well in a number
of awards programs offered by the Cooperative. Mr. and

throughout the south central area qualified for Quality
Awards presented during the 1976 annual membership
meeting of the Cooperative held earlier this year.
