Despite what you hear, raw milk can make you sick if you are not careful in picking who you deal with. I hosted a raw milk conference in Ohio with 70 attendees. I taught the health benefits of raw milk for an hour– while I was on the tail end of a three week illness from a load of campylobacter bacteria. It was the worst and longest bout of diarrhea I ever had. It was from raw milk from an unclean milk producer. I wanted to believe it was from our laying hens and eggs, but it was not. Needless to say, we mooved on over to a very clean dairy.
Still being sick from bad milk, it was an embarrassing situation teaching its health benefits in front of every one (I told no one, of course) but it made a life long impression on me of why it is so important to under stand HOW to pick a raw dairy. No one has a story like this one– so I am most qualified to teach it more (since I have the experience). With the growth of the moovement, there will be more out breaks since people, like me at one time, generally do not know how to evaluate a dairy.
