Hired in 2000 by the Production Department to coordinate all milk route structure and management of hauler relations across the United States. Other responsibilities included scheduling milk routes into plants in our newly East Coast region including routes in ME, VT, NY and PA.
In 2002, I was moved into the Dairy Pool Department and my job developed into two basic areas of both farm hauling and farm quality. I continued coordinating all milk routes across the United States. Additionally, I arranged quality testing at labs, advised dairy farms on milk quality, entered farmer quality data , entered hauling cost data and communicated with milk handlers' field staff across the country. In the years to 2014, we built the Hauling and Quality Department by hiring Hauling Coordinators, Quality Coordinators, and Administration Staff for processing quality data and hauler invoices. By 2014, I was managing, and coaching six employees.
