Milk and Egg Mission Statement

The Milk & Egg Section is a food safety arm of the Animal Health division.  The section is responsible for ensuring the state’s dairy farms, shell egg producers and dairy plants provide safe, wholesome products that comply with state and federal regulations.  We participate in the National Conference on Interstate Milk Shippers (NCIMS).  This allows interstate shipment of Grade A dairy products.  We ensure that all egg producers with >3000 birds meet the requirements of the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service - Poultry Division.  We offer technical support, information and advice to producers, citizens, and fellow public health agencies at the state, tribal and local level.  We investigate consumer complaints and outbreaks of disease related to any dairy products, eggs, or egg products and administrate environmental protections within the scope of our authority.
