Importance of raw milk

I heard of a man who could only intake liquids due to a health problem and he lived quite well by drinking raw milk. I believe it. Our freedom to determine what we want to have for our food is being attacked in Wisconsin. I reccommend attending the symposium, info below.

Wisconsin was carefully selected as the site of this year's symposium because of the recent spate of actions taken against Wisconsin raw dairy producers and their customers. Wisconsin, as the 2nd largest dairy state in the union, and the state with the most small dairies, is a crucial state for all raw milk activists and defenders to "dig in" against the erosion of their consumer rights.

Wisconsin Dept. of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) through creative interpretation of law, and legislators through ill-advised legislation, want to ensure that raw milk never passes consumers' lips - by harassing the farmers that produce it - all in the name of "public and food safety".

That's why this symposium, at this time, in this state is so important.

We'll begin by hearing the personal stories of Wisconsin producers, Wayne and Kay Craig and raw milk consumer activist, Emily Matthews. Sally Fallon Morell and Dr. Ted Beals will delve into the science of raw milk nutrients, microflora and benefits. Then, we'll step back and see the role of raw milk from an international perspective with speakers from Germany and Slovenia.

German biodynamic academic researcher Prof. Dr. Ton Baars will describe his research exploring unique raw milk healing properties and Syliva Onusic, Ph.D. will illustrate what enlightened leadership in other countries are embracing on behalf of their citizen's health. We'll hear from the lawyer defending Wisconsin farmers, Elizabeth Gamsky Rich, Esq., who will discuss the legal distinction between the public good and the private right which will set the stage for the grand finale.

Michael Schmidt, in a rare public appearance (outside of the Canadian courtrooms), will kick off the highlight of the symposium and introduce "Joining in the Battle for Food Rights" panel discussion, moderated by the champion of raw milk rights, revolutionary blogger David Gumpert. Panelists include Sally Fallon Morell, Pete Kennedy, Esq., Mark McAfee, Michael Schmidt, Tim Wightman, Ted Beals, M.D. and Elizabeth Gamsky Rich, Esq.

Those that attend the FundRAISER reception and dinner following the symposium will be treated to a delicious four course meal featuring local, organic and grass-based food, and Mark McAfee at his finest, presenting a not-to-miss keynote "Raw Milk as Medicine.... Proudly Violating FDA Drug Laws'.

This is THE symposium and FundRAIASER to attend this year. Your attendance is IMPORTANT and NECESSARY. Don't think you can stay at home on Saturday, April 10th. You are needed.

Very interesting. I'm glad that folks in WI are fighting for their freedoms to drink/eat what we choose!

Northwoods said...

For sure, this should be fought before legislation but...as not a single one of are so called representatives listens to a word we say...
I suggest we do as many goat milk providers have done.
Make yourself a part owner of the herd.
You kick in $1.00 for part ownership of the herd and you can get milk however and whenever you want it!
Where there's a will there's a way...er should that be "whey"...
Either way the fed, state or local gov can take their intrutions and stick it!
We have a right to choose what we consume. "WE" not they!
It angers me that we must find ways around their tyranny rather than just shoot the bastards!
Sorry Hup..that's as polite as I can be on the subject...
(only one curse word in 4 paragraphs)...

the fight continues tomorrow at a hearing in EauClair. Grassway farms as well as many other independant dairy men are going and bringing many to convince our state congress critters that they should not be the ones telling us what we can and cannot eat/drink. If they win this one, we will see much more legislation restricting our freedoms, but I think there will be some real consequences.
Thanks for the encourgement as always Gen. You are so kind to always comment.
Northwoods, you did good, but the cow share program is not approved by the goons. You have to have an association and now they are trying to outlaw that.
I must admit, I am getting weary in the battle lately.
