Sponsor: HARRIS, B.

Co-sponsors: McGHEE, LOW, HUGHES, QUINN, RUCKER, DARROUGH, PEARCE, GUEST, KELLY, SANDER, WELLS, WETER, HODGES, DETHROW, OXFORD, SUTHERLAND, SCHAAF, ROBINSON, SCHIEFFER, WILDBERGER, TODD, DAVIS, FALLERT, LAMPE, FISHER, ERVIN, CUNNINGHAM, and NASHEED

Issue: Free sale of raw milk in the state of Missouri

Economically: Allowing free sale of raw milk supports small family farms and the local economy – providing property tax funds that benefit the local community, public schools, county government, sheriff’s departments, and emergency services.

Socially: Pick up and delivery of raw milk causes gathering of like-minded individuals with the same approach toward life.

Environmentally: Raw milk is responsible, local agriculture that reduces our carbon imprint on our planet.

Safety: Raw milk farmed and consumed by conscientious individuals poses no more of a threat to consumers than does pasteurized milk or raw chicken sold in stores.

Healthy: Raw milk supports preventative healthcare, reducing the burden on the state by contributing to reduced allergies, obesity, asthma, stomach ailments, etc.

Dietary: Raw milk is the only ingredient suitable for certain dishes, nutritional drinks, and delectable treats.

Scientifically: Raw milk is full of nutrients, and has immune and health-promoting effects that are destroyed during pasteurization. Babies do not thrive well on pasteurized milk.

Constitutionally: Raw milk gives the people a reason to peaceably assemble, which is protected by the 1st Amendment.

The 14th Amendment, Section 1 states,

“No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

  1. Raw milk should be available to anyone that wants it.
    Goverment needs to mind it’s own business, let any farmer that wants to sell raw milk do so.
    Have his customers sign document saying no law suits.
    Uneducated dummies are causing too much trouble for those of us that want to be healthy the old fashioned way.
    Let the mash potato people that are afraid of everything go buy their dead watered down milk.

  2. Should be freedom of choice, If dairy’s were sanitary ,milk wouldn’t need pasteurizing…. It’s sort of like painting over poison
