  • And they want us to believe fresh raw milk is dangerous!

Midland Farms has announced a voluntary milk recall affecting these three brands as well as a fourth one, Corrado’s Market. The recalled milk has a “sell by” date of Sept. 24 and was sold in five northeastern states.

The failure of a pasteurization equipment at a milk plant in Menards, N.Y., has led to a voluntary milk recall in five northeastern states.

Consumers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island should check their milk cartons to see if they’ve been recalled, according to New York State’s agriculture department.

____________________________________________________________

The fight to maintain control of our food production and supply must begin in the states.  Your governor, according to this bill, will appoint the agency that will contract with USDA/FDA for access to your state.  It is your governor who will make this federal theft of domestic agriculture possible; and it is your governor who must be pressured to refuse to negotiate with corporate federal agencies.  The betrayal of America’s farmers and ranchers will begin with each state governor granting corporate federal agencies access to your state and will be enforced by state agencies under the color of law.  These agents will be your friends, neighbors and maybe even family members who will put on an agency badge and suddenly forget the Constitution and individual rights. 

For years multi-national corporations have raided and plundered third-world countries, stealing land, raping the environment and causing the starvation and abject misery of untold millions of people.   The efforts to steal farmland, to grow gmo crops for biofuels while human beings starved next to fields full of grain, is nothing new.  The world wide efforts to seize control of the world’s food supply, dictating what people would eat and if they would eat, is coming full circle. The US along with Canada is now about to fall victim to the absolute takeover of food production and supply in both counties, by corporations who have orchestrated the greatest theft ever perpetrated.   They could not have done it without the corruption of career politicians who sold their integrity, honor and office for corporate favors and campaign donations, increasing their own personal wealth along the way, and selling out the very people they swore to represent. 

We are about to see congress come back into session; never have we as a country been in such danger from our own government.  Democrat or Republican, we have no support within our own congress. 

Below is a break down of S.510.  As pages 1 thru 104 were struck, the provisions contained in those pages were written into broad and vague language, open to interpretation and abuse by corporate federal agencies.  This was intentional.  What was taken out in one place was inserted elsewhere under ambiguous language.  What remains as a “bill” is the actual assault on domestic agriculture hidden behind euphemistic terms such as “food safety”, “food security” and other deceptive language meant to deceive the reader into thinking the safety of food in this country was at risk from family and independent producers.

Here are just some of the highlights of S.510.  There have been several versions of this bill, so for expediency, we have simply listed the sections by number.  More

Hello WICFA Friends and Members,

We have completed the revision of our statement of opposition to the “Raw Milk Bill”, SB 434 and AB 628. Please read it through and give careful consideration to the points that are raised. You can find a link to the bills on our raw milk page to read them for yourself. The opposition statement is attached to this email and is available on the website as well.

If you agree that we should not take whatever can be achieved instead of standing firm and holding out for a bill that is beneficial to all raw milk producers, no matter what the size of their operation, then print off some copies of our opposition statement and distribute them to friends, family, and your neighbors.

We must let our representatives in Madison hear from us as well. Please contact your assembly person and senator to let them know that they should not vote in favor of the “Raw Milk Bill”. We need to make sure that our voices are heard.

Do not let our food choices be regulated by DATCP and corporate interest.

“If the people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny” Thomas Jefferson

Sincerely,

Clifford J. Cordell II

Ont. farmer toasts victory in raw milk trial with glass of the contentious drink

1 Comment

Canada/Yahoo News       Thu Jan 21, 6:55 PM

By Ciara Byrne, The Canadian Press

NEWMARKET, Ont. – Clutching a glass of raw milk, an emotional Michael Schmidt toasted what he called a victory for the local food movement Thursday after the Ontario dairy farmer was found not guilty of 19 charges related to selling unpasteurized milk.

“People need to learn how to stand up even when it seems it’s impossible to achieve change in our interpretation of the law,” said Schmidt, who was often depicted by supporters as the small farmer fighting for consumer food rights against an established milk industry.

In a legal battle that played out over three years, Schmidt fought to continue the operation of his 150-member raw milk co-operative in Durham, Ont., and defended himself against the charges for dispensing milk straight from the cow.

Schmidt was charged under the Health Protection and Promotion Act and the Milk Act after an armed raid by about two dozen officers and government officials at his farm in 2006. More

Scott Trautman says enough: Chaining himself to WI Governor’s mansion, food & water strike 4pm Christmas Eve

Hello everyone,
 
This was not what I intended to do this Christmas. This is not making my family, my wife, three young children, happy one tiny bit.
But the evil in Wisconsin is so great, the intensity of pressure on our farm so massive, I am left with no other option.
Cheryl Daniels and Jackie Owens of Rod Nuelstein’s DATCP, Department of Ag Trade & Consumer Protection, Food Safety division, has attempted to torment us over the past two months, trying to make me shut up about the illegality, the scandal, the misuse of power up there. Their plan is to intimidate, and they have succeeded in removing, unjustly, our last ability to make a living: our meat licenses. Which of course I am welcome to appeal: To Rod Nuelstein. How do you think that’s going to go? When do you think he’ll make time for that? That is but one indication of how out of wack – out of control — non-democratic – that agency is. The meat licenses have nothing to do with their Raw Milk case. There is but one purpose: shut Scott Trautman up. Their arrogance is incredible.
 
Our media has a limited attention span, which Rod understands, and has used: to sound great in the word, but no one follows up to see just what he does.
Perhaps a farmer chaining himself to the governor’s MANSION and refusing all food and water will be enough of a “media event” to bring the proper light to this situation.
 
I am not asking anyone to join me at this time, I do not desire to ruin the holidays of good people everywhere — but I will be ‘on the wall’ for as long as it takes.

See my posting for further details, look back – way back – to all my blog postings, way back to the beginning, and see my character vs. Rod Nuelstein’s.
I am ashamed of our Governor, Doyle, whom I was under the illusion was a friend to the people of Wisconsin. Turns out he’s just another scumbag politician.
 
 
Please pray for me and my family. We WILL endure, we WILL see a bright future for Wisconsin, we WILL have our New Golden Age of Dairy in Wisconsin.
