The proposed draft is inadequate in addressing the concerns of fresh milk producers throughout the state, and does not fall within the mission statement of this organization.

The proposed draft states no author, and is applicable to Grade A dairies only, a license that requires a contract with a milk processor as a predetermining factor, this forced contract is a violation of Federal Uniform Commercial Code as it manifests as coercion. 

Furthermore some milk processing companies require exclusive contracts from their producers in direct violation of the Sherman Anti Trust Act. 

The hundreds of small herd owners concerns are not addressed in any fashion in this proposal.  

This proposal forwarded by an inclusive group known to advocate to the members not speaking to the press, not contacting anyone beyond their legislative area, not sharing information outside the group, in an effort to deny First Amendment freedoms. 

These freedoms were bought with blood, and we will not dishonor those who have given their all to procure and defend them. 

Further directives were issued to not have out of state individuals involved, and yet an out of state organization’s officials have been contacting legislators and DATCP officials  without having registered as lobbyists in this state as required for anyone reimbursed by an organization in an amount of $500 or more.  Those officials contacted have a burden as well to report these contacts and are complicit in this act.

Such is the murk and quagmire of politics in Madison.

Therefore the Wisconsin Independent Consumers and Farmers Assn. in an

effort to hold to a higher standard will be opposing the raw milk proposed

draft in its present form.
