U.S. Sen. Sam Brownback said Friday that Kansas needs to attract a major cheese processing plant.
The Republican candidate for governor said that dairies and cheese production facilities were an agricultural business area of growth the state should pursue.
“A Brownback Administration will roll out the welcome mat for dairies to come or expand in Kansas,” he said. “Many of the advantages that have led feedlot operations to our state apply equally to dairy production.”
Brownback said he would review the state’s regulations to determine how the state could help attract and grow such businesses.
“We need a major cheese processing plant in Kansas to expand market opportunities for our milk,” Brownback said
