CEO Of Kleinpeter Farms Dairy Taking Sabbatical

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Jeff Kleinpeter, president and chief executive of Kleinpeter Farms Dairy, is taking a short sabbatical after working long hours over 14 months to overcome quality issues involving the family-owned Baton Rouge dairy's milk.

         The Advocate reports Kleinpeter said Thursday he expects to return within 30 days to "help the team grow even further."

         Kleinpeter says his brother Kenny, acting general manager, sister Sue Anne Kleinpeter Cox, chief financial officer, and his daughter, Taylor, will handle things in his absence.

         Kleinpeter dealt last year with complaints of milk tasting funny and turning sour before its expiration date. An inspection found an equipment malfunction was letting diluted soapy water remain in tanks after they were cleaned, which was causing the strange taste. The equipment was replaced and new procedures were established.
