Farmer Michael Schmidt talks raw milk to the media at Queen's Park

UPDATED Dec. 22, 2008

The Bovine learned yesterday that raw milk farmer Michael Schmidt and his supporters plan to host a raw milk symposium during the final weekend of January 2009 in Toronto.  The plan is to bring in luminaries in the raw milk movement to address a wide range of topics related to raw milk. The legal side of things will also be addressed.

The symposium will take place Saturday January 31, from 10 am to 5 pm and will be followed by a wine and cheese party from 5 to 8 pm .  Speakers will included Dr. Ron Hull, Dr. Ted Beals, Mark McAfee and Michael Schmidt. The symposium will be the week following the Guelph Organic conference and will be in the middle of Michael Schmidt’s trial on charges laid in connection with the raid on Glencolton Farms in November of 2006. The Bovine will be reporting further details as they become available.
