The largest dairy processing plant for fresh milk officially opened today in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England. The $835 million investment built by Arla Foods cooperative is expected to supply 10% of England’s milk. Arla Foods is a farmer-owned cooperative with 3,000 members. Only 900 of those members will supply the milk allowing it to process 240,000 liters per hour (545,000 pounds) or over 2 billion pounds per year. The plant actually began processing milk in November, but was adding finishing touches until recently.

545,000 pounds of milk from 900 farmers is 605 pounds per farmer. Doesn't sound like a very big plant to me. Check your numbers.
