----------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE JULY 2015 --- BEWARE! Our local health food stores are selling Ultra-Pasteurized Milks!! and Homogenized Milks/ dairy products.

The WAPF recommends that you NEVER buy or use Ultra-Pasteurized dairy products for anything! Ultra-Pasteurized dairy will not culture or ferment,

and there may be serious health consequences.

Horizon products are usually Ultra-Pasteurized and some Organic Valley dairy products are Ultra-Pasteurized - -

Look carefully at the package, and ask the store dairy mgr. if you're not sure -- It's a shame our "health" food stores are carrying these items!!!

Please let the stores know your thoughts on this.

The WAPF also recommends that you NEVER buy or use Homogenized dairy products.

See http://www.realmilk.com for more info.

Cornucopia Institute files third legal complaint over alleged violations
at Horizon 'Organic' dairy factory farm

by Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The nonprofit organic advocacy group the Cornucopia Institute (CI) has filed its third legal complaint with the National Organic Program (NOP) alleging serious improprieties by Dean Foods, and specifically its WhiteWave subsidiary.
According to the complaint, WhiteWave's Horizon Organic milk brand violates organic standards because cows raised on the giant factory farm in Idaho where the company gets much of its milk are confined to feedlots and routinely barred from accessing pasture as required by law.

On February 11, CI sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service requesting an immediate investigation into the matter, which was first brought to the agency's attention back in 2006.
Addressed specifically to Matthew Michael at the NOP Compliance and Enforcement Branch, the letter alleges that Horizon repeatedly violated the law with its milk brand by corporatizing the milking process to match that of the conventional dairy industry.

PAST UPDATES -

PAST UPDATE --- May 3, 2013 --- Update - Raw Milk Bill - now in NV!

RAW MILK - NV LEGISLATION - pls help support this!

From: gloria montero <goatdiva@yahoo.com>

Subject: Raw milk Laws

The Nevada legislature is considering an amendment allowing the sale of raw milk under certain circumstances which are a little less restrictive than they have been in the past.

The main point of AB 209 is that raw milk be allowed for sale in a county other than where it is produced.

This would mean that raw milk produced in a county with a dairy commission (Nye) would be legally available for sale in any county in Nevada.

This is a START towards allowing the sale of raw milk from other small dairies in NV under hopefully less restrictive requirements that are now the law here.

PLEASE go to the comment website at https://www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/77th2013/A/

and express your opinion about allowing the passage of this bill.

[ Note - this has closed - Governor Brian Sandoval VETOED this - We need to educate more consumers, so next time we will win.]

You can read the latest version of the bill at

https://nelis.leg.state.nv.us/77th2013/App#/77th2013/Bill/Text/AB209

Even if you do not have an interest in the sale of raw milk in NV please support this bill.
It could mean a new opportunities for dairy producers in the future and the beginning of reasonable future changes to the milk sales laws in Nevada.

Please help make this change possible in Nevada by expressing your support for this Bill.
It has already passed the Assembly and is now in Committee in the Senate.
