Truth in Labeling Bill Aims to Help Louisiana Dairy Farmers

By Jeff Ferrell, KSLA-TV 12, Shreveport

SHREVEPORT - Truth in labeling is expected to become a potentially big issue this legislative session down in Baton Rouge. It all centers around the definition of milk. The dairy industry is all but vanishing right before our eyes in Louisiana. There used to be well over a thousand dairies, but now there are fewer than 100 statewide. Now, the milk industry is getting some help in the form of a bill filed for this year's legislative session that just got underway this week.
