Wisconsin Judge Says We Have No Right to Choose Our Food


www.wnd.com

A Wisconsin judge has decided – in a fight over families' access to milk from cows they own – that Americans "do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow."

The ruling comes from Circuit Court Judge Patrick J. Fiedler in a court battle involving a number of families who owned their own cows, but boarded them on a single farm.

The judge said the arrangement is a "dairy farm" and, therefore, is subject to the rules and regulations of the state of Wisconsin.

The people who owned the cows shared them in some sort of co-op with other farmers. This is not unlike people who own horses and board them at other places. Apparently this judge has issues with people who buy cows or other large livestock for the purpose of providing dairy products for their families.

Wisconsin is not the only state facing this issue, Iowa is as well. I believe the issue stems from the sale of unpasteurized dairy products across state lines. But if a family is using the dairy products themselves, I do not see why this is an issue. But apparently the farm where the cows are kept seems to also be a commercial farm. According to this article, the commercial dairy business seems to have competition and that is what is pushing this ruling through.

We should have the right to drink raw milk if we so choose. I personally do not like the taste, but others do. There are many people who are turning to goats milk because some believe the nutritional value is greater than cow milk.

And the FDA cannot prevent the diseases coming from farms and ranches that the FDA themselves monitor.

Thanks for finding more articles about this. There wasn't much out there when I wrote about it:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

It's a quite disturbing notion and I hope this achieves more coverage. More people should know about this. It sets a bad precedence in future cases.

I did not know there was a thread. Thank you both for telling me that. I just came in my email this morning and I assumed it was recent news.

It's no problem, when I found it there was only a few pages I could find the story, mostly blogs. I'm glad you found more sources. It shows it's getting more attention, which it needs.

Knew a guy growing up - family had a goat. They drank the milk. They were all smart. Books everywhere. I'm not sure if it was the goat milk, though. But something, maybe genetic.

If the judge in Wisconsin thinks he should tell us how to eat, then maybe he could make dairy prices come down. And he is infringing on the rights of the Amish as well, because they generally drink raw milk. This cow cooperative is a great idea I think. We should be able to grow our food and consume it.

I wonder where the line will be drawn. Would they insist in the future that people can't grow gardens and eat their own tomatoes?

And they were smart, the goats milk probably helped a little.

I think if someone likes raw milk, more power to them. My mother's aunts and uncles drank raw milk every day and they all lived to be very old before they died. One uncle gave me some the same morning he had gotten some from his neighbor (they were from the mountains in Kentucky) and it was the worst tasting stuff, in my opinion.

But if a person buys a cow to feed their families by it, then they have that right. I have relatives that buys piglets, raises them then has them slaughtered. Other people have their names on lists by county sheriffs to get the deer meat from deer that has been run over by vehicles. We live in a time where we have to do what we have to do. I think it is called self-sufficiency.

This is probably coming from a guy that eats the best of real organic foods with a little too much of self-interest. Living in the South if I was in his shoes, I'd be afraid to say something along those lines. I think the people 'round these parts wouldn't take to kindly to that kinda talk.
