The dairy alliance official says Le Mars depends heavily upon the dairy industry with both Wells Enterprises and Dean's Foods providing ice cream and milk, but she believes many people don't think of those food industries as having an agriculture connection.  Philips says many local jobs are dependent upon the dairy industry.
