Records of the Associated Milk Producers Inc., Morning Glory Farms Region (AMPI-MGF) Abbotsford, Hillsboro, and Madison plants and of a predecessor company, Madison Milk Producer's Cooperative Association. AMPI-MGF was a dairy cooperative that marketed and produced dairy products throughout Wisconsin and other Midwestern states. In 1986, the Mid-States Region of AMPI merged with Morning Glory Farms to form AMPI-MGF region, resulting in membership of over 12,000 family dairy farmers. However, most of the records pertain to the history of AMPI-MGF's Madison plant, which was the main location of a predecessor company, Madison Milk Producers Cooperative Association (MMPCA). This collection documents the activities of dairy marketing and production, relations with its members, and tracks the various mergers and organizational changes focusing mainly on activities of central Wisconsin, especially the Dane County and Madison area. The collection consists of administrative records, which include minutes, by-laws, financial documents, organizational correspondence, and materials about related divisions, including the Monroe, Wisconsin, based Cheese Producers' Marketing Association (CPMA). Also included are legal documents and disputes, membership materials, marketing materials, and includes photographs, some negatives, and films.
