STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Mississippi State University says it has already taken all the cheese orders it can handle this holiday season.

The university’s dairy processing plant has been making cheese for 83 years.

The original plan was to take this year’s holiday orders until mid-November. But, the university says a software system failure has brought ordering to a halt.

The 15,000 existing orders will be fulfilled. But the system cannot take any more holiday orders for now.

Mississippi State cheese can still be bought on campus in Starkville and at the Bulldog Shop in Meridian.

The university says online ordering could restart in January.
