The information here is intended to assist dairy producers in understanding the elements that are addressed during the licensing and inspection of dairy facilities.
Wisconsin's dairy inspection program operates under the requirements of the relevant Wisconsin regulations and the Food and Drug Administration's Pasteurized Milk Ordinance (PMO). Compliance with the PMO is essential for Wisconsin's milk supply. The standards applied in Wisconsin follow national standards that allow milk and milk products to move without restriction in interstate commerce.
As a milk producer, your contact with DATCP will mainly be with the Dairy Sanitarian assigned to your geographical area. This individual is trained in the field of milk sanitation and production, and they are qualified to help identify problems/violations that can affect the safety and quality of your milk.
