New Wisconsin laws allow heavier dairy tankers, tax exemptions for Evansville and Stevens Point

SHARE NOW

Wisconsin’s law just changed allowing tanker drivers to haul any liquid dairy product with a gross vehicle weight of up to 98,000 pounds over six axles. 

The old law allowed truckers to haul only milk up to that weight.  Most trucks are restricted to 80,000 pounds.

The change in the law allows more efficient movement of products like liquid whey to drying facilities to make whey powder and whey protein concentrate.  Liquid whey is typically hauled from cheese plants to other facilities for drying.
