Roads all around the Perham area are snowy and slippery this morning as a band of winter weather moves through the region. Drivers are urged to travel carefully. By 9 a.m. there were already multiple reports of vehicles in the ditch between Detroit Lakes and New York Mills.  Weather conditions were expected to stay relatively the same throughout the day and overnight tonight.   File photo

At Bongards’, raw milk comes in by the semi-tanker to begin the cheese making process.  After a truck arrives, a sample of the milk is taken and sent to Bongards’ lab to be tested. Tests are run to check for antibiotics or other contaminants. If the milk isn’t pure, it is never unloaded or used. After given the (literal) green light, a vacuum hose is attached to the truck’s spigot and the milk enters a series of stainless steel pipes to go into the plant.
