5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Will Save the Family Dairy Farm, March 12, 2005
This review is from: The Untold Story of Milk: Green Pastures, Contented Cows and Raw Dairy Products (Paperback)
I am a dairy farmer and have been drinking my own milk for years straight out of the bulk tank and without pasteurization. I was doing it to save money. I always put my cows on pasture as much as possible for their health and wellbeing. I just finished reading this book and am delighted to find out that I was doing so much good. My milk goes to a big dairy to get pasteurized and made into cheese. I am excited at the idea of selling milk directly to my customers via a cow share program. Cut out the middleman and I can finally make a living at dairy farming. No wonder the powers that be want to prevent this.

I recommend this book to all dairy farmers and to anyone concerned about their families health. I especially recommend this to all public officials. These ideas will save the family farm and dramatically reduce the cost of health care in this country.

I gave this book a 4 rating because Dr. Ron needs to clarify a number chapters. I would like to see more in the enzyme chapter on the basics of enzymes, a clear explanation of closed modern milking systems showing why they keep milk clean, his recommendations for winter feed for dairy cows when grass is not available, and his suggestions for the most important areas of research to update the work of Price, Pottenger and the others.

Hi Charles and thanks for such an industry side review,I'm from WI and have a dairy exp myself
Cows were grass fed most months,milked stanchion style,the milk being hauled to a coop/These cows were extra healthy and strong(holsteins)
I had many times thought of drinking raw,but was warned contaminants too much for stomach
Also for everyone,there is new evidence,milk from Guernseys and other cows high in butter fat produce a type A2 milk that is 100% better for human health
This info is from the dairy industry in New Zealand,A2 is now being sold in midwest at HYVEE stores,the best yet?
