Support Raw Milk Access in Texas!

Jersey dairy cowThe Texas legislature meets again in 2013 and we have another chance to improve our access to raw milk with the passage of HB 46. Those who used our tax money to fight the 2011 bill claimed safety issues; however, this is not a safety issue. It’s already legal to buy the same raw milk from the farmer on his farm. Allowing the farmer to deliver milk to his customers would not be less safe than customers driving many miles to the farm to pick up milk, it would just be more convenient for both.
