Land O’Lakes is shutting down its whey production operation at Perham, Minn. Company officials indicated whey processing at Perham was to cease by late January. Perham’s whey processing volume will be transferred to Land O’Lakes facilities in Pine Island, Minn., Spencer, Wis., and Kiel, Wis. Milk procurement and hauling will not be affected, since the Perham plant has not been receiving raw milk.

The Land O’Lakes 2003 Annual Meeting is scheduled for Feb. 26 and 27 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
