This is why I just sent an email to Organic Valley repremanding them for lobbying the WI governor to veto a bill that would legalize on farm/direct sales of raw milk in WI. It was widely supported by both the assembly, and the senate, and initially the Gov. said he would sign it if it passed both houses of legislation. The Gov. ended up vetoing it do to big corporate lobbying from Organic Valley, the Dairy Board, Sargento, and some medical group.
I live in WI, and feel that people have the right to consume whatever food they want, and I don't need the government "protecting" me from making informed decisions about the food I eat! I think Organic Valley had the most to lose if the Legalization of Raw Milk passed, so that's why they were against it, it would take sales away from their products. In my email I also told Organic Valley that I will no longer be buying their products. This makes me kind of sad, because I was always kind of proud of the fact that Organic Valley was a hippy coop that was started in WI.
I will step off my soap box now. :P
