Dairy Division

The Dairy Division regulates the Louisiana dairy industry by ensuring high quality dairy products at fair prices for both producers and consumers. 

The Dairy Division has two program areas:

  • Milk Bonding Law
  • Dairy Stabilization Board

Contact us: René Simon, Dairy Division Director

Milk Bonding Law

The Milk Bonding Law program guarantees payment to the farmer for milk sold to the processing plant or cooperatives. This program is necessary because dairy farmers are the only farmers whose product is sold and consumed before they are paid. 

Dairy Stabilization Board

The Dairy Stabilization Board helps to stabilize the Louisiana dairy industry to assure an adequate supply of healthy and wholesome dairy products.

The board’s responsibilities:

  • Prevent persons, partnerships and corporations from using unfair methods of competition, unfair or deceptive acts or practices and disruptive trade practices in the sale of milk and milk products.
  • Investigates complaints regarding violations of Dairy Stabilization Board regulations
  • Audits the financial records of processors, distributors and retailers
  • Determines costs of manufacturing, selling and delivering dairy products.
