    when will this government learn that there are competent citizens that can and do make more correct choices than this draconian us food lobby that have no idea what they are doing except to satisfy the pasturized milk lobby…….

    My family and I own a 4,000 acre sustainable ranch in Arizona. We raise and sell 100% range fed beef and goat meat as well as heirloom vegetables. I have spent over 4 years working to pass small dairy legislation in Arizona, state statutes say raw dairy sales are legal in AZ, but the caveat is that you have to be a “certified dairy” which requires an entire bottling facility on site for any raw milk. I have worked with the AZ state dept. of agriculture, and have even written a food freedom bill but during the stake holders meetings for the bill, the United Dairy Men of Arizona (UDA), would lobby against any legislation or rule changes that would allow small dairy rules or regulations. So it is still illegal in AZ and being sold illegally with nothing ensuring that the milk being illegally sold is safe, which in turn is not safe for consumers or the entire milk industry…funny thing is that is exactly why the UDA and Farm Bureau were against any small dairy legislation, was because RAW MILK is just so unsafe!

    This is so timely!
    Thank you, WAPF, for putting this out! I was just about to sit down and respond to an email from my senator here in ND, arguing the dangers of raw milk. I know have the data and information to set him straight! (Kindly, of course). I really appreciate all the work you are doing for our food freedoms!

    Too true
    “These numbers show us that raw milk is a very safe food.” I grew up on raw milk. As soon as my family switched to store milk (law changed where we lived or something) my sisters started having rashes and stomach problems. My dad actually bought his own cow and milked it twice a day, including early in the morning before heading off to teach (he was a math professor at a university). My sisters never had a problem with the milk from our own cow.
    Why would they use a flawed data report to make things happen? That’s not science anymore. That’s propaganda.
