Yes to raw milk

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors will hear a presentation on letting local dairymen sell raw milk products to Humboldt consumers on Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. Citizens are requesting Ordinance 512.4 be rescinded. Please attend this meeting to show your support.

This ordinance does not stop anyone from consuming raw milk. The Public Health Department can do nothing about it. Anyone who owns a cow or is part owner can consume the milk from that animal under a legal contractual arrangement allowed in all 50 States. The disadvantage of a cow share program is the milk isn't inspected.

Under current California law, raw milk is legal if the dairy is licensed and regularly inspected. Only two dairies meet these guidelines, Organic Pastures in Fresno and Claraville Farm in Paicines. Organic Pastures tests each batch of raw milk and no human pathogens have been found in 10 years. Claravale Dairy has been producing and selling raw milk since 1927 and not one test has shown a pathogen in 87 years.

There are 3 types of food that actually stop people from losing weight. The first is milk. It may seem hard to believe, but the milk that is available in most stores has been processed so much that it can be more harmful than good. Drinking raw milk can help solve this problem, but raw milk is not available to most people without going to a lot of effort.
