Since a Wisconsin jury decided Vernon Hershberger did not need a license to sell raw farm products directly to consumers, he is not in a mood to support a bill to allow on-the-farm sales of raw milk but only with a license requirement.

Thatís why his bill includes requirements for licensing, testing and meeting certain standards such as those for water on dairy farms, Grothman added. In my opinion Hershberger should have a licence for selling raw milk directly to the consumer.
Thank You Carrie.

All of our Ancester's down to us on the farm have had raw milk! Never any problems! As long as things are kept clean. Now days milk is always tested.
Raw Milk makes the very best Homemade Ice Cream! Cheeses too.
Thank you Carrie

Pasteurized milk is safer and yet it's proposed that raw milk sellers to the public not have to be licensed and adhere to accepted safety standards? One thing to drink your own product yourself - quite another to sell it to the public.

"...Globally, outbreaks of illness caused by raw milk consumption occur regularly. Recorded outbreaks include cases of death, stillbirth and miscarriages. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, raw milk is responsible for nearly three times more hospitalisations than any other foodborne source...."

My libertarian soul cringes at the thought of more regulation - but some things reasonably do need to be regulated.
