Raw milk producing farm? Not much difference between that and any kind of organic facility, except... Your comment that pasteurization "destroys the
life giving qualities of the milk" Just what the hell does that actually mean? Are you saying having fecal bacteria, possible infection from cows who
are pregnant, and producing antibodies in the milk specifically for the calf? Humans don't need animal antibodies, any more then we need milk
"turbo-charged to maximize milk production", w/pumping cows full of bovine growth hormone. Animals maintained in clean appropriate environments, not
penned together, and given a chance to walk around (same applies to chickens, pigs, anything you wish to "harvest") just are naturally healthier. The
mother of the animal in question, same reason why human breast milk is best for human infants, is the species specific antibodies generated for that
species. Development of natural antibodies specific to the infant, calf, etc, in-uteri.
So the alternative of dosing with antibiotics added to food, as is commonly done in non-organic environments, is pasteurization of the milk, that
kills the bacteria that can kill you, me, anyone. At the same time I am a big promoter of putting little more then good quality, organic "grazing
material", both wild in nature and grain based. As well as grass. And of course clean water. (good luck if anyone is doing any natural gas fracking in
your area. Bad enough when the water ONLY bursts in to flames...) Again no added crap or the whole concept of "organic" goes down the crapper (no pun
intended, really). You are what you eat, and whatever you eat or drink, eats.
