Post subject:  the mess of the modern milk government-industry "alliance"..

I'm not much of a milk drinker but I certainly like cheese and ice cream :) . I came across this book (and this review) at work today trying to do some geography of where some major metro areas get their milk. I knew national milk production was messed up because of fed gov's long standing hands in the cookie jar (and then how big industry arises--both on the farm and in manufactuirng of the finished "products" in how to make the most money while screwing the little guys by finding all the "angles" in the rules) but this was pretty enlightening. What a mess has been created...

But, people have found ways to fight back in some cases. This article is old (2003) but I found it amusing how these folks fought the various state gov. regulators for people who want to drink raw milk. Don't know how people like these have fared in more recent times but I hope the fight continues (not that I'm a big believer in raw milk but more because I believe in letting honest people make their own decisions among themselves. What a novel concept :--o !!).

My enter life has been spent using whole milk and it's byproducts. I find it amusing the the governments try to make it illegal because we are some of the few who will survive their [polite words] poop storm.

In Missouri they fine and put people in jail for selling raw milk. They raised the Amish community my cousin bought raw milk from. Also fined them for selling eggs.

Back- If you "liked" what happened to Missouri (I don't know the details), you'll "love" this story about the FDA running a sting operation against an Amish farm out east. They got this one guy to sell across state lines which then allowed the FDA to come after him. The nanny state drunk with power and arrogance!!

Nothing surprises me anymore. Im not a big Amish fan. We've had alot of run ins with them over property lines etc and their poaching but its still their right to sell their products to whomever if the person understands the. "Risk ". Illinois has done some " cracking down" also but its not been as extensive .. Yet....
