    I would not trust this misinformed advice. The misleading facts about farms, cows and food safety have my head spinning. The step of pasteurization has been one of public health’s most effective food safety measures ever. I’ve been to hundreds of dairy farms over my lifetime – small, large, organic, conventional – all scales. Local, organic or “healthy cow” is NOT a safety guarantee. I’d strongly advise that you do your personal research and speak to a medical professional about the risks before serving it to your family.

    Thanks for your opinion Dairyman’s Daughter, but it seems you might be a tiny bit biased. We are definitely advocating that folks do their homework and know the farms and the farmers where any raw milk might come from. it believe there is a mountain of scientific evidence to show that if PROPERLY raised and prepared, raw milk can be not only safe, but better for you.

    Biased or not Dairyman’s Daughter is correct when it comes to the fact that a healthy cow is not a safety guarantee. I’ll go with Science Based Medicine’s article when it comes to raw milk, not someone who is biased against “factory farming”, who doesn’t know that e coli is found in nature (or did you mean particular strains of e coli?), and who claims health benefits but doesn’t show them.
