MADISON - Although Wisconsin is called "America's Dairyland" and is renowned for its dairy products worldwide, it does not yet have an official state dairy product. That may change, however, thanks to a bill drafted by Sen. Howard Marklein, R-Spring Green, and Rep. Todd Novak, R-Dodgeville, that proposes to make cheese Wisconsin's official state dairy product. Marklein and Novak drafted the bill after a presentation from several fourth-grade classes at Mineral Point Elementary School.
