Another round of expansion at Hilmar Cheese Company’s processing facility in Dalhart, Texas, has been announced by the dairy farmer-owned firm.

Two major expansions of the plant have already been done since it opened in 2007. The first, or phase two of construction, was finished in 2010. The second, to increase production and packaging capacity of 40-pound block cheese and whey protein, was completed earlier this year.

Round three, which is scheduled for completion in early 2015, will boost production of 640-pound blocks, add additional cold storage room, and increase the plant’s milk receiving capacity. Read more
