This is sensible - the people who are paying for the cows know what they are getting.

I drank raw milk as a small kid right out of the teet. My Uncle was pretty good with his aim. My mom swore I became allergic but am 64 and find she was just nuts. I have milked cow, seperated cream from milk, drank raw milk as an adult. To be honest, the cream was the dominate in the milk. My dad never milked a cow without warming his hand and washing all the teets with warm water. I think we should be able to drink this but prefer to have my own cows so I can watch the milk for any problems. You get so you know if the cow is in trouble physically by the milk

What business does the government have to interfere with consumers informed choice to use raw milk ?
Whats next ? Outlawing raw eggs ?
People can die from consuming non-fresh food containing raw eggs, so only ever eat such dishes when freshly made and throw out any leftovers.

People should be able to choose what they want to eat or drink. Are there going to have laws against steak that is less than well done.
