Dozens Laid Off After Evart Dairy Company Ends Production

Today is the last day of operation for one northern Michigan dairy distribution center.

The closure means dozens of people are getting laid off from their jobs, something that will impact the entire community.

The Dean's Liberty Dairy Company in Evart made their last products Friday.

The distribution center has been laying off employees in waves for the past year after Meijer began producing their own dairy products.

It will now continue as an operation center, with two employees and between 15 and 20 drivers.

Coming up on 9&10 News at 11:00, we'll explain how the layoffs are impacting the small community.
