32.104 LOCAL INSPECTION.

Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, the governing authority of any municipal corporation or other subdivision of state government may, by ordinance, provide for the inspection of milk, cream, butter, or other dairy products sold within its limits, and of dairy plants, dairy farms and dairy herds kept for the production of such milk, cream, butter, or other dairy products and may prescribe the terms upon which such sales may be made and fix penalties for violation thereof, but no such ordinance shall conflict with any law of this state, or with any rule of the commissioner for the inspection of dairy herds or dairy plants or dairy farms or impose any additional requirement for the sale of milk, cream, butter or other dairy products processed outside the corporate limits of the municipality than is imposed by law or by the rules of the commissioner, or require a duplication of inspection of dairy plants, dairy farms, or dairy herds producing milk, cream, butter or other dairy products sold within its corporate limits, or otherwise interfere with any power or duty of the commissioner or the commissioner's official subordinates.

When a dairy plant is licensed by the commissioner of agriculture, the plant, including all distribution facilities and vehicles, is exempt from the licensing requirements of any subdivision of state government except for licensing requirements which the city in which the plant is located may impose.
