Summary

  • Records of a Shawano-based agricultural cooperative formed in 1931 to market north-central Wisconsin dairy products. Growing to a world-wide market force, the cooperative changed its name from Badger Cooperative to Consolidated Badger Cooperative and then to Morning Glory Farms in 1985. The records include a historical file, minutes of meetings, annual reports, annual financial reports, lists of directors and officers, legal papers, milk production records, union and labor contract records, and other organizational records of the cooperative. There are also records of dairies and dairy production plants in northern Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan which merged with CBC over the years. These records include a few corporate records and information on each plant's financial condition collected by CBC at the time of the proposed merger. In 1986, Morning Glory Farms merged with the Midstates Region of Associated Milk Producers Inc. to become the Morning Glory Farms Region of Associated Milk Producers Inc. Records created after the merger are accessioned separately as records of the Associated Milk Producers, Morning Glory Farms Region.
