Cheese Plant Manager Accused Of Ripping off Milk Suppliers

WOOD COUNTY, WI (Ben Caxton) — A manager at a Wood County cheese plant is accused of short-changing the producers he purchased milk from `Prosecutors say Michael J. Moran of Wisconsin Dairy State Cheese Company in Rudolph failed to deliver underpayment checks to producers over a six-year period beginning in 20-12, instead he faked signatures on the checks and deposited them with funds from the retail store. Some 80 producers were shorted over 21 thousand dollars in the scheme, which has led to Moran’s removal from his position with the company. Attorney General Josh Kaul, who announced the charges on Thursday, called the news particularly galling considering the dairy crisis in the state, especially because the money was supposed to go back to producers. Moran will be in court February 24th for an initial appearance.` Of the 80 some victims, 21 are over the age of 60
