Raw Milk Proponents Backing Bill In Wisconsin
Proponents of legalizing the sales of raw milk in Wisconsin are trying to convince the Legislature to loosen restrictions in “America’s Dairyland” through a new bill.
The Associated Press reports that raw milk supporters packed a hearing Wednesday before a state Senate committee, with many of them wearing hats that said “Milk Freedom.”
Opponents from the state’s dairy industry and medical community formed a coalition saying it’s a threat to public health and Wisconsin’s $26 billion dairy industry.
The AP reports that bill sponsor Sen. Glenn Grothman says just like eating sushi or a medium rare hamburger, drinking raw milk poses little risk and is actually healthier and better tasting before it’s pasteurized.
