High Desert Milk


Six Idaho dairymen formed High Desert Milk, Inc. as a cooperative in 2001
to vertically integrate their operations. The company began producing milk powders from their Burley, Idaho facility in 2008. A 2012 expansion added the capability to manufacture butter and buttermilk powder. High Desert currently employs 110 people.

High Desert offers a variety of sizing for milk powders: 25-kilogram bags, 2,200-pound totes, and 3,200-pound totes and can produce low-, medium- and high-heat nonfat dried milk, skim milk powder, and buttermilk powder. The company receives and processes all milk the day it is delivered, allowing High Desert to produce a quality, low-spore, heat-stable product that can be used in a variety of applications, including infant formula. For butter, the company can produce bulk 25-kilogram boxes, 1-pound solids, and quarter-pound retail packages. The facility’s current capacity is upwards of 35,000 MT of milk powders and 20,000 MT of butter.
