Raw milk is valuable to health but not necessary for calcium. Supplemental calcium is dangerous. K2 (mk4,mk7) is necessary to take calcium out of the blood (put there by your liver to alkalanize your blood) where it can cause problems like plaque and put it back in your bones. Vit D3 is necessary (take 5-10k IU's per day) along with Magnesium and K2 to build bones and prevent osteoporosis. Calcium supplementation is not necessary if you have the 3 and eat a properly balanced organic diet, low in transfats and low in processed foods. Also, multivitamins from supermarkets and drug stores (like Centrum and naturemade) are NOT good-very cheap and synthetic sources, which are/can be worse than nothing and the balance of vitamins (too high in synthetic & wrong types A &E and too low in D3 and most contain iron-contraindicated in most people) For far more complete info, try Dr. Brownstein for more info, also naturalendocrinesolutions and lef.org.
