We, the state of Montana, tried passing some legislation recently that would allow for farm sales of raw milk. However, it didn’t pass….many are hopeful that it will this next legislature, however if based on Idaho’s model, that is unlikely to pass – however hopeful many are. Why? Well that is what this blog is about…..we believe that its politics from 1989 that affects our right to purchase raw milk today and that Government intervention proved to be the catalyst of our ranking only 38th in the US dairy industry.
Government intervenes in our daily lives in so many ways, whether federal, state, or local levels. We affect this intervention by our desire to improve things, yet when has the Government really understood the long term affect of their intervention? Those that push for one legislation or another, have only good intentions, yet themselves do not consider the long term consequences’ of their own desires to improve their ‘lot in life’, or fix what they feel is broken.
So even though we usually don't talk politics, today we're on a roll.............~grin~
