IMPORTANT RAW MILK UPDATE
April 25, 2008
CRITICAL COURT DATE TOMORROW
Today is the eve of a most important event in A Campaign for Real Milk.
Tomorrow, Friday, April 25, all eyes will be on California, at the preliminary injunction hearing against enforcement of AB1735, a "sneak attack" bill that mandates standards so stringent, it would be impossible for raw milk producers to stay in business.
Gary Cox, the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund General Counsel, is on his way to California to argue for a Permanent Restraining Order against further coliform testing of raw milk products in California. What happens tomorrow will have far-reaching effects on the availability of raw milk everywhere.
Other states are watching what happens in California to see whether they will attempt similar legislation.
The research has been completed; the experts interviewed and testimonials collected; the depositions are done. He is READY!
Now, for OUR part: Please everyone take a moment today and also tomorrow morning to pray for and visualize a tremendous victory for raw milk lovers everywhere.

A big thank you to the many raw milk supporters who showed up-many drove long distances. Even though the hearing started two hours late and lasted until almost midnight, many stayed right until the end.
