Raw milk operation makes pitch to county commission
There is a Nye County water district governing board, a capital improvements advisory committee, a desert tortoise habitat advisory committee, a master plan update steering committee - and soon there could be a county milk commission.

I sure hope something comes together for this raw milk dairy concern here in the area. Years ago we had to buy our own cow just to get real milk to our three growing teenagers and myself. Many people can't care for a cow and this would be the next best logical step. By the way, that same cow is still being milked by us and giving us lots of milk, butter, yogurt, cheese, and a calf every year. She's been a blessing for us.

Yes,having your own Moofer for you personal consumption is great but when you start selling raw unregulated product to the public, there is a responsibility and libel situation to consider just in case that remote situation where something goes wrong and someone has a reaction or worse.

...of course there are health code requirements for food processing and preparation in food items sold to the public. These products will be no different. Just remember that this "raw unregulated product" is cow's milk. Humans AND other critters have been drinking this for thousands of years. This isn't rocket science.....A healthy cow and a clean milking area is all it takes. Only when this milk was being transported hundreds of miles from the cow to the customer was there a problem. Generally, raw milk doesn't spoil - it changes to another product.

I wonder how long this place will be open before Der Homeland Zecurity comes in and closes it with guns drawn and shots fired.

You're right but when it leaves your hands, you lose control of the milk for whatever happens on the way home. I would not sell the raw milk,only the finished products. Lawyers and judges would eat you like a piece of cheese if a situation was traced back to your facilities. CYA with lots of high limit insurance and good luck!!

...just so we understand, it isn't ME applying for this raw milk dairy start-up. My cows have enough to do feeding their own calves, my other animals, my family and myself.
