A dairy company in northwest Kansas will be the sole supplier of milk to Dannon Co.'s yogurt factory in Fort Worth.

The agreement between Dannon and McCarty Dairy was officially announced Thursday at a ceremony in Rexford.

The McCarty family milks nearly 7,200 cows daily at dairies in Rexford, Bird City and Scott City.

The Hays Daily News reports a processing plant in Rexford gets milk from the three dairies, pasteurizes it and strips out water. The dried milk is used by Dannon for its yogurt.

Tom McCarty told about 150 people including Gov. Sam Brownback and Dannon officials that the deal took about two years to put together.

Brownback says he hopes it's the first step in Kansas becoming a big player in the dairy industry.
