The study focuses on plant and distribution route labor productivity and costs of 35 fluid milk plants in 15 states. We targeted medium and large plants that are well managed and have a significant market presence. The 35 operations are highly respected in the industry and are thought to be among the best fluid milk operations in the Size: KB.

The study focuses on plant and distribution route labor productivity and costs of 35 fluid milk plants in 15 states. We targeted medium and large plants that are well managed and have a significant market presence. The 35 operations are highly respected in the industry.

The next table summarizes the labor productivity and costs in the 35 plants by increments. Each increment, or quartile, represents 25% of the plants. For example, the labor productivity reported in the first column represents the average productivity of the 9 plants with the lowest labor productivity.

Likewise, the first column also represents the. and calculations used in establishing processing costs. The modelling of distribution costs is discussed in the section Model Distribution Costs.

And lastly, the Summary of Cost section combines the results of the full-line processing model and the distribution model to reveal per unit processor cost for all white-milk package types. cost structure of 15 fluid milk cooperative plants.

These plants are of substantially different sizes and are located in the East. Southeast. Northcentral. and Northwest regions. The objectives of this study are to provide a 'benchmark' cost analysis for the processing of fluid milk in cooperatively owned plants File Size: 2MB.

The growing demand for milk in towns and the high costs of milk production within their boundaries led to the development - probably around –70 - of containers suitable for various stages of marketing and distribution.

These were metal cans, provided with a lid and having capacities up to about 80 litres. MILK PRODUCTION COSTS General considerations. Milk production costs differ from country to country, from one producer area to the next, and among production economies.

Determining production costs is therefore a delicate matter and should be done on a case-by-case basis. ESTIMATION AND CONTROL OF COST PRICES Background. and all are based on a prior analysis of costs and cost prices. Once the decisions have been made, it is essential to see that they are carried out in accordance with objectives and projections.

InUSA fluid milk per capita consumption was 71 kg (USDA ERS, ).Thermal processing of milk is a multi-step, energy intensive process that is used to transform raw milk into various types of dairy products – skim milk, 1% milk, 2% milk, whole milk Cited by: still service these areas with fluid milk.

This movement in milk production to different areas of the U.S. has also prompted discussion regarding new opportunities in milk processing and organic milk production in Kansas. This study examines those opportunities and points out the key components in developing a successful (profitable) milk.

Milk is the most valuable protein food that widely consumed by people all over the world. The milk as a raw food is easily available on various dairy farms that are processed to the increases the variety of nutrients.

The milk processing plants include a range of milk processing equipment to perform or handling the various operations of milk like heat treatments, pasteurization, homogenization.

The McCully Group also maintains a database with over US dairy plants. The plants included in the database account for around 95% of total US milk production. For each plant, it shows the location and products produced.
