This isn't an isolated incident here in California, it's happening to multiple raw dairy farmers and their using every skewed way to put these people
out of business.
Raw milk from pasture raised animals is absolutely safe, digestible and healthy. These people know this and that's why they're selling it. Selling it
to people who have educated themselves on real nutrition. These aren't jam packed feedlot cattle being fed solely grains standing in their own manure,
these are naturally raised, healthy animals that are being treated properly and milked with sanitary conditions always in check. The product is an
enzyme rich (lactase hence no lactose intolerance) probiotic rich, efa vitamin mineral rich, unadulterated, highly nourishing product. Mothers who
can't breastfeed are using raw milk as a successful and much safer and nutritious alternative to formula. There is much science to the safety and
nutrition of raw milk. There is no differentiation being made between the properly raised raw milk being sold today and the tainted raw milk of the
early century from packed feedlot cattle that caused illness. Raw milk is not inherently a dangerous product, it becomes one when the cattle is put
into unnatural, unsanitary, and unhealthy conditions.
My entire family can not drink pasteurized milk. We now thrive on raw grassfed milk with absolutely ZERO problems that we usually endure from the
pasteurized, grain fed, feed lot product.
The idea that raw milk poses a health risk is unfounded. It has nothing to do with the product but everything to do with the environment. The people
who choose to consume these products are educated and well aware of this, and have every right to conscientiously choose what and where they get their
food from. Given no one has suffered any ill effects from any of these raw milk producers of purveyors, why in the heck are our tax dollars being
wasted on these raids that are essentially labeling well intentioned people as dangerous criminals? The use of swat teams and firearms tells me
there's more to this than just trying to over regulate.
If I could I would attend the rally tomorrow that is supposed to take place outside the courthouse. This is sickening to me to watch well intentioned,
good people, bringing health to their community be demonized. An absolute atrocity.
If you are of the belief that pasteurized dairy is some how safer and healthier than naturally raised raw, save your comments and go educate
