DeSoto Parish

DeSoto Parish is located due south of the Shreveport/Bossier City metropolitan area. The parish is divided into farm/dairy land and timber land. Until recently the economy was primarily agricultural. Beef cattle production and the dairy industry are still important and timber production is a significant contributor to the economy, but industrial development is proceeding at a rapid pace.
