Europe to lead world dairy quality standards and welfare, says expert

By Mike Stones , 24-Sep-2010

Europe will set the standard for the world dairy industry, specifically for milk quality and cow welfare, an international dairy expert has told a recent conference in Brussels staged by Pfizer Animal Health.

Ynte-Hein Schukken, professor of Epidemiology and Herd Health at Cornell University, US, told delegates that “Most of the milk produced throughout the developed world will be following the same standards as those set in the EU,” according to UK farm publication Farmers Guardian.

Milk import rules

Speaking at the seminar entitled Are European dairymen making the most of cell count data?, Schukken added that the US dairy industry expects EU authorities to insist on a much stricter interpretation of its milk import rules. Other countries, notably China and India, are likely to follow the lead shown by Brussels.

The likely impact would a fairer, more open world milk market, he said. More

After Barry Soetoro signed Executive Order #13544 on June 10, I wrote an article titled “Barry Soetoro, Imposter in Chief, Implements CODEX ALIMENTARIUS by Executive Order in the U.S.!” This article was published on June 14, and raised more than a few hackles. It was immediately rebutted on June 26 by Scott Tips of the National Health Federation in a press release titled “The Obama Executive Order – More Healthcare Bureaucracy, but Not Backdoor Codex.

In response to this press release, I provided substantiated proof that my thesis was correct in an article published on July 7, titled “CODEX ALIMENTARIUS: The Elephant in the Room that They Don’t Want You to See.”

Mr. G. Edward Griffin was kind enough to read this response, and agrees with my assessment of our current situation regarding Codex Alimentarius:

A contrary point of view was sent to us from Barbara Peterson, publisher of Farm Wars. In a spirited rebuttal published on her web site, she argued that, although it is true that the executive order does not directly create a framework for Codex, it does so indirectly because it gives federal agencies the power to control food, vitamins, and natural products provided only that they claim their decisions have a “scientific basis,” which is a standard that defies objective definition. She also points out that the federal agencies that will be making these so-called scientific decisions are populated by people who openly are committed to implementing the guidelines of Codex Alimentarius. There can be no doubt that whatever Codex says will be embraced as “scientifically based” by these federal agencies. Therefore, the executive order greases the wheels for the implementation of Codex without ever mentioning the word. READ MORE…


The truth is what is important, and not blind allegiance to an organization that is “too big” to be wrong. Read the E.O. for yourself, and don’t let others do your thinking for you. That is what the revolution is all about!

While listening to WPR’s broadcast debate between the candidates for the 87th district I couldn’t help but notice that jobs and the economy were the high point of debate.  Interestingly enough, I’ve tried to contact both Mary Williams (incumbent) and Dana Schultz for interviews regarding issues concerning non corporate farms; they haven’t had time to respond.  Or is it: they don’t want to face the music? 

 

Could it be that the legislature itself has failed to recognize that their onerous lawmaking and subsequent rulemaking by administrative agencies has been stifling our economy?

 

The legislature has declared the owning of property, in the form of livestock and land, to be a crime.  More
