Wisconsin assembly panel approves bill allowing sales of raw milk at farm gate

This just in via Cathy Raymond — a story by Rick Barrett of the Journal Sentinel:

“State legislation to allow the sale of raw farm milk to the general public moved a step forward Tuesday.

By an 8-1 vote, the Assembly Committee on Rural Economic Development recommended approval of Assembly Bill 628 that would allow raw milk sales direct from farms licensed by the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

The legislation is expected to be voted on by the full Assembly and Senate before the session ends in April.

Under the latest version of Assembly Bill 628, raw milk sales could only take place at farms where the milk was produced.

Farmers would have to post a sign declaring that raw milk does not provide the benefits of pasteurization and may contain disease-causing pathogens, and that warns people of other health risks.

Farmers would be prohibited from advertising the sale of raw milk except for an on-farm sign.

Their milk would have to meet all of the requirements of a Grade-A dairy farm license, including delivery of a portion of the raw milk to a dairy plant where it would be tested for things such as pathogens and antibiotics….”

    We think they are just throwing us a bone. They are afraid of the momentum that this movement has now. Food, and Raw Milk, can lead the way to freedom and fairness in our country and the world. Only corruption benefits from civil injustices. Keep pushing and do not let up. The Slow Food Movement is moving forward, not fast food! They will try to hold us back for the sake of their job security and money, greed. It is time they fall out. Vote them all out, as soon as possible. It does take a genius to figure this out. Yet, Einstein knew all about this, a long time ago. And so did we. we were just blinded because we were too busy working and taking care of our families and trusting them to do what is right. we were wrong.
