Dairy Farms may return to El Paso

Dairy farms were a thing of the past in El Paso, but they could make a comeback.

The nearest dairy farm is the Licon Dairy in San Eli, but if new legislation is passed more farms could pop up in El Paso.

State Rep. Mary Gonzalez introduced House Bill 1080 this week in Austin, which would remove restrictions to restore the dairy farm industry to the county.

It's meant to spur economic growth in the region.

A study will have to be done before farms could be created.

FYI - Licon Dairy in San Elli is not a farm. They were bought out in 2006 by the USDA, and moved their cows (farm) out to McNary
