Cooperative recognizes Bent and Robinson families for their milk quality

LONGUEUIL, QUE. – Two Maritimes farms were recently named to the Milk Quality Club of Excellence, by Agropur Cooperative, a tribute paid to members who recorded the best milk quality results.

Only 16 Canadian farms are inducted each year, from among 3,473 dairy producers, for their outstanding performance.

For Allen and Jacqueline Bent of Lawrencetown, N.S., this marks their second time as regional champions. They run their operation of 150 Holsteins and Jerseys with the help of their four children, Jennifer, Adrian, Alana and Jonathan.

From Wards Creek, N.B., Scott and Sebrina Robinson were awarded an honourable mention for the outstanding milk quality of their 50-head Holstein herd.

Founded in 1938, Agropur is a leading player in the North American dairy industry, with sales of more than $4.7 billion in 2014. The Cooperative has 3,473 dairy producer members and 8,000 employees. Agropur processes more than 5.4 billion litres of milk per year at its 40 plants across North America.
