ADC Meets Farmers’ Needs
More Than $129 Million in Extra Payments
"At Atlantic Dairy Cooperative, our mission
is to maximize returns to members. In the past
six years, we returned more than $129 million
to members in equity payments, over-order
premiums and quality bonuses. That’s an
average of $36,600 per member. And these
extra dollars are continuing at the rate of $1.7
million a month.
"When non-members ask me why they
should belong to Atlantic Dairy Cooperative,
I am happy to report that we are financially
healthy, strong in membership and growing in
sales. ADC is the region’s largest and most
fiscally-sound cooperative, with a guaranteed
market and outstanding benefits.
"More dairy farmers joined us last year than at any time in the
past decade. If you are not an ADC shipper and are worried about
your own milk market, then you should talk to the cooperative that
is facing the future with confidence.”
