Lawmakers negotiate for raw milk options
A bill moving through Idaho's House of Representatives may resolve the debate over raw milk sales in the state.
House Bill 675 would amend Idaho law to provide for acquisition of raw milk and raw milk products by owners and establishes terms for cow shares, sheep shares and goat shares.
