CPS Unit 100, subunit 8, located in Michigan, was operated by Mennonite Central Committee.


Raymond L. Hartlzler supervised the dairy testers in Michigan.  In selecting men, agricultural agents and church organizations looked for both farm background and arithmetic ability.  The eight men assigned to Michigan in mid April took training at Michigan State College in East Lansing.  The unit formally opened on June 25, 1943. 


Dairy associations provided room, board and transportation expenses between farms.  Usually farmers provided room and board in their homes.  Each tester received an allowance of fifty cents per day.
