Vote no on banning sale of raw milk

Published: Thursday, April 3, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

I will soon take my boards to be a registered dietitian, and I drink raw milk. Not only have I never once been sick from it, but I have seen my farmer in action as her production methods are fully transparent.

Therefore, I trust her product where I can’t trust the supermarket. 

Furthermore, this mode of production is sustainable and naturally holds the farmer accountable. The time of chalking milk to hide the unhealthy color has passed, and I am always confident in my raw milk. If the cows are healthy, then so is the milk.

Please don’t take away my right to drink it.
