"Dairy Disaster" unravels an elaborate money laundering scheme that lined the pockets of three businessmen and left Michigan dairy farmers holding the bill. When a Texas businessman and an Oklahoma oil man took over the Pinconning Cheese Plant; they promised a "Field of Dreams." Instead, they bounced more than 2-million dollars worth of checks to Michigan farmers devastating the dairy industry. These same businessmen had pulled the same scheme at a plant in Idaho, where they were being sued. (January 29, 30; September 11, 1996)
