Western Wisconsin’s congressman wants to make it clear that milk comes from animals, not plants.
Congressman Derrick Van Orden signed-on to the Dairy Pride Act. That’s the federal plan to classify milk as coming from cows or other animals only. He says Wisconsin dairy farmers work incredibly hard to produce top-quality milk and he doesn’t want to see nut-based or vegetable-based products horn-in on their success. Wisconsin’s dairy groups are all in agreement. The Dairy Pride Act comes not long after the FDA said nut-milk producers can continue to call their products ‘milk.’
