UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  The owner of Wisconsin’s largest dairy farm is buying three farms in southeast Michigan. According to the Adrian Daily Telegram, the Kaukauna-based Milk Source has signed papers to buy the former Vreba-Hoff dairies. That includes three dairy farms and 2,250 acres near Hudson Michigan.

The firm of Rabo Agri-Finance closed the dairies in 2010, after it filed for foreclosure. Milk Source owner Jim Ostrom says his firm will spend about $90-million to acquire the Michigan dairies and get them running. They’ll employ around 100 full-timers.

In Wisconsin, Milk Source owns the Rosendale Dairy – plus three other dairy farms, along with a genetics herd and a calf-raising operation.
