Livestock Feed and Pet Food

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) licenses commercial feed manufacturing and distribution. This includes livestock feed, pet food - including homemade pet treats, and feed ingredients. Regulation protects the human food chain and animal health, protects consumers against fraud, and provides businesses with an even playing field.
