We, the under-signed, are fans of raw milk. Many of us have, keep or enjoy goats in some capacity, and understand the powerful health benefit of the milk they provide. We would like to make our opinions on the subject known, and they are these:
We are happy to be "harmonized" with our bovine counterparts. Raw milk is raw milk, and should all be treated and legislated the same, no matter its animal source.
We believe that all raw milk producers should embrace the highest standards of inspection and microbiological testing, and we are happy to do so.
We request that the government update its information base, taking the most recent gold standard science under advisement when considering the legal status of raw milk. The latest reseach shows that previous myths of milk being a "high risk" food were inadequately evidenced, and milk is actually a low risk food.
