The dairy industry has a large impact on Wisconsin's economy and culture. At DATCP, our goal is to ensure consumers can trust the safety and availability of milk and other dairy products.
The Division of Food and Recreational Safety (DFRS) handles licensure and inspections to make sure dairy farms, producers, and transporters meet state and federal regulations that keep dairy products safe for the public. We also have resources for people across the dairy industry, including technical assistance, standards development, and evaluation.
