One of the top milk-based farm cooperatives in the country has elected Jamie Witcpalek of Pagel’s Ponderosa Dairy to its board of directors. Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative announced last week that Witcpalek and Justin Peterson of Creamery Creek Holsteins in Bangor will join the board for three-year terms. Witcpalek has been involved with Edge for over ten years, since her father, John Pagel started the organization. Pagels Ponderosa Dairy near Kewaunee milks 575 cows per hour, producing 10 gallons of milk per day. According to the news release, Edge Dairy Farmer Cooperative provides dairy farmers throughout the Midwest with a powerful voice in Congress, with customers, and within their communities.
