A Missouri dairy farm owner is being sued by the State AG for following the law as written for the sale and delivery of raw milk. Their two teenage girls are said to have been caught trading raw milk on a city parking lot. The court denied a request to dismiss the case. Two stories and a video news cast are provided here.
A Greene County judge has denied a request to dismiss a state lawsuit against a Laclede County couple for selling raw milk in a Springfield parking lot.
Attorney General Chris Koster is suing Armand and Teddi Bechard of Conway after their daughters sold unprocessed milk to two undercover Greene County health inspectors in April 2009 in the parking lot of the Wedgewood Shopping Center.
Representing the State Milk Board, Koster’s office is seeking to prevent the Bechards from using a central distribution point to sell raw milk to customers who pay in advance.
The Bechards’ attorney argued Friday that the law allows the family to sell raw milk from a distribution point. The state claims the law limits the sale of raw milk to just directly from the Bechards’ farm in western Laclede County.
