(MNN) The Kemps milk manufacturing plant in Rochester is shutting down this summer.
More than 60 years of production will end on June 30th and 125 jobs are being eliminated.
Kemps has been leasing part of a building owned by Associated Milk Products Inc. (AMPI) which closed last fall.
C-E-O Greg Kurr said in a statement, "In evaluating our options, it became apparent ceasing operations is the best long-term strategy for our business."
The closure does not impact Kemps ice cream manufacturing facility in Rochester.
