Long-time El Paso dairy closing down amid milk industry struggles


Update: Farmers Select Dairy provided additional information about the closure in a statement Wednesday.

"Over a month ago, Farmer’s Select Dairy announced it was going to close and cease operations. Closing the plant has been extremely difficult, as we have been blessed to serve this area for over 100 years. But like many dairy bottling plants, we have continued to struggle in the face of declining milk prices, an aging facility, and a significantly diminished supply of local milk. 

Approximately 50 employees were impacted, but all were eligible to transfer to another dairy location or receive severance benefits."

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- Farmers Select Dairy is closing down.

The location on the 7300 block of North Loop in the Lower Valley has been providing the Borderland with freshly-processed milk for decades.

ABC-7 confirmed with workers Tuesday that the dairy will close its doors by the end of the month.

ABC-7 is working to find out how many workers will be impacted, reason for the closure, and when the closure is scheduled to happen.
