Lynn Dairy, Inc.
Walter Schwantes purchased Lynn Dairy in 1949. At that time, the plant had
a daily intake of 13,000 pounds of raw milk and a daily production of 1,300
pounds of cheese. In 1956, William W. Schwantes became president of the
company upon the death of his father.
Many changes in the dairy industry, including the incorporation of bulk milk
tanks on the farms, gave the opportunity for the dairy farmers to increase
their production. Competitive milk pricing enabled Lynn Dairy to grow with
the times. William L. Schwantes assumed responsibility as company president
after the retirement of his father in 1985.
Working under the third generation of the family name, Lynn Dairy takes in
over 700,000 pounds of raw milk per day.
Lynn Proteins, Inc.
In 1971, Frank Thomas and William W. Schwantes built Lynn Proteins as a
joint venture designed to remove protein from whey. Lactose production
began in early 1979 and deproteinized whey production began in April 2003.
Lynn Proteins purchases whey for processing from dairy plants throughout the
state of Wisconsin, manufacturing Whey Protein Concentrate, Deproteinized
Whey and Lactose. All of our finished products are manufactured and
approved for human consumption.
Lynn Proteins continues to enjoy the same steady growth as Lynn Dairy.
