I'm pretty sure a fresh gallon of milk is already over $10 where I live in rural Alaska. I have already resorted to buying out of town costco shelf ready milk years ago. A gallon of gasoline however just past $7 this late fall this year here. Sigh. . .

7 dollars is ludicrous. I'm starting to be happy about the fact that I'm lactose intolerant :p

people around you are happy you decide not to drink milk.... :yes:

Raw milk is milk from cows, sheep, or goats that has not been pasteurized to kill harmful bacteria. This raw, unpasteurized milk can carry dangerous bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli, and Listeria, which are responsible for causing numerous foodborne illnesses.


They used to place these close to the fire or inside a pot of boiling water to heat them up.

You could even put a pail that farmers milked cows with over a fire to pasteurize the milk.

And all it takes is the Cow to wade through a pond where defecation happens or lay down in cow pies for the contamination to happen.

I figure the government will sort it out before it's all said and done. If they don't I imagine more than a few of those bozos will be looking for a job next election time.


Maybe they will become dairy farmers. ;)

in my area I do not think we would see a price change, and our milk prices are very low right now anway ($1.25 a gallon) Due to how many Dairy farms there are locally.

Me and My Grandfather Milked Cows and always heated the milk. I have milked over 100 cows in my lifetime and would always clean the teet before milking, but you can't just go up to a cow and drink. What if they laid down on Poo ?? I am almost 40 years old and have done a lot , but one thing I will tell you is not take the chance of getting sick when it can be easily avoided.


So don't always assume what others have not done... When I was younger up until 9 years old I lived in Lexington/ Buena Vista Virginia where there were lots of farms... I have even milked Goats as well.

Meanwhile, in the part of the world where we are not scared of everything not sterilized, people do drink raw cow milk. Personally I don't, not because I'm worried, but because I don't really think I would like it, I like my medium milk.

My uncle though loves raw milk, especially I believe during the calling period or something.

I use water rather than milk for the shakes, not quite as tastey, but pretty close (and less calories - barely depending on milk type, but still). Cereal on the other hand... :cry:


i guess i will have to start eating Beerios for breakfast
