WLNS 6 reports Michigan’s newest budget proposal would save the state money by transferring the responsibility for dairy farm inspections from the state to the dairy industry.

The state inspects each of the 2,200 dairy twice each year. The idea would make industry groups like the Michigan Milk Producers Association, Dairy Farmers of America and others responsible for inspecting dairy farms, a task they are already qualified to handle. The transfer of on-farm inspections would save the state $600,000 per year.

The state will remain the authority inspecting milk manufacturing and processing plants to ensure milk products are safe to eat.
