Key to Safe Raw Milk from Cows

If there could be a master key to safe raw milk, I think it would be contented cows. Remember Elsie, the Borden cow? Their slogan used to be “Milk from Contented Cows”, when safe milk first became synonymous with pasteurization. Today’s dairy cows have strayed way out of Elsie’s pasture. These cows may not produce raw milk that is safe because Elsie’s descendants spend their brief lives entirely indoors, living on field corn and soybeans to the degradation of their milk and the degeneration of the nation’s health.
