I did go to the sources cited at the end of the woman's blog in order to make sure they were legit and to read more of the details that condensed versions leave out. Now that fake news spreads like wildfire on the Internet, it's something one must do these days. In the process I found a slideshow of 34 "beautiful bovines." I need to send in a few entries!

i don't know about the specific article, but traditional dairy lobbyists are actively pushing to keep raw milk illegal and deny us choices. nothing surprises me in the world any longer, people push their own agenda onto the masses in order to make a buck never considering anything moral. it has always been around, but the size and scope of much of it now is a bit unsettling.

given my present state of mind i think i'll just stop with that ;> after your entire business has been hacked and held hostage you tend to get a little grumpy about things.

It's the same status quo. We can all be thankful we are set up to care for our families.

I just purchased a book regarding the subject subject of Raw Milk. By the time I was 10 minutes into it my pulse rate and BP were rising. I will give you all a few snippets and hope you get a copy for yourself.


This book is dedicated to the dairy farmers across the U.S. who brave government interference and harassment to produce safe raw milk for the many consumers committed to exercising their right to consume the foods of their choice.

Here is a brief piece and this is only in the foreword.
Isn't it curious that at this juncture in our culture's evolution, we collectively believe Twinkies, Lucky Charms and Coco-Cola are safe foods, but compost grown tomatoes and raw milk are not.
