Abstract: The optimal number, size and location of milk manufacturing plants in the Southeast was determined subject to both seasonal fluctuations in production and the practical restrictions on the assembly, movement and processing of raw milk. The results indicate that substantial technical efficiencies could be gained from an industry wide re-organization which would permit milk movement patterns approximately as they are shown in this research.
