Raw milk bill passes Senate Ag committee unanimously

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Senate Committee on Agriculture and Higher Education Wednesday passed legislation unanimously that would allow for the sale of raw milk.

With an amendment to the original bill, the end result is that farmers who wish to sell raw milk on their own farm will be able to do so.

The farmers will have to secure a license from the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection.  That registration will also require the dairy farmers to adhere to regular testing.

Additionally, the farmer will have to clearly label every bottle as unpasteurized and include both the producer's name and license number.

All sales must be done on site and not through stores or distributors.
