Lots of reasons for drinking raw milk, if you can ascertain it is clean. A local herdshare would be fantastic!!! Pasteurisation kills the badies, but also alot of the goodies!

I don’t know, I’m don’t want to get too carried away bashing folks who buy into this new food-wave crap or restricting their access to “bath-milk” because I believe people should be free to do things that are bad for them if they so choose. But movements like raw-food and people’s sudden “need” for raw milk strikes me as a pretentious fad, and the main problems with it as far as I’m concerned lie in people indoctrinating their children and feeding them potentially dangerous “health” food.

Smokers don’t The force their kids light-up and if they did they would (quite rightly) face government intervention. The same can’t be said for things like raw milk, which I’m sure in at least a few cases is forced onto children by their granola-brained parents,

Spot on doc!

Good parents would obviously be feeding their kids ‘high protein’ nutrigrain for breakfast with some low fat, permeate free milk with a side of reduced salt cholesterol lowering heart foundation tick approved margarine spread across some low gi ‘high fibre’ bread with a glass of ‘no added sugar’ fruit juice to wash it all down.

If dealing with fatties at the gym that claim to ‘eat healthy’ has taught me anything, it’s that the general population have nfi when it comes to their own nutrition let alone what they push down their kids throats, so imho they are just as (if not more) dangerous to their kids health as any granola-brained idiot.

Now there is no way I would drink unpasteurised milk from a bottle. I’d only drink it just after milking, still warm. Ah, mammaries

There, I fixed it for ya 😛

There, fixed it for ya

I drink Highland Organic milk, which is batch pasteurised and unhomogenised. This is the closest to raw milk that can legally be sold for drinking. Batch pasteurisation heats to lower temp then standard pasteurisation, but that’s longer.

*Some* of the best cheese makers don’t use raw milk either and reckon its benefits are mythical.

That the oldest cheesemakers in the world aren’t very modern in their methods should be no surprise.

This also applies to any manufacturer of dairy products.

but the op does have a big nose…

You can also get Cleopatras bath milk at the Belconnen Markets from As Nature Intended (the fruit/veg/health shop on the “outside” of the markets right next to the stage & playground).

Griffith regularly sells out their supply sometimes before it even hits the shelves. From memory the delivery comes in on a Tue or Wed.

If you haven’t tried raw milk, you just haven’t experienced what milk actually tastes like. I just wish I could afford to have it all the time…

Because of pasteurisation, the majority of the milk handling in this country is quite lax (as any nasties will be “fixed” later in the line). The guys doing the raw milk actually handle it correctly from udder to bottle and wash & sterilise all the equipment…

Has anyone ever tried milk fresh from a cow? If not, you have not tasted real milk.

Grew up on it. If the cow had just had a calf, the milk was almost orange, and we often got it still foamy and warm from milking (which was done by hand). It was pretty good.

It was orange because of the colostrum.

You can purchase bovine colostrum in powder form.

This is advertised as bathing milk however the farmers is quite explicit in saying that it is food grade.

By definition (in this country at least), it isn’t food grade because it isn’t pasteurised.

Yes by the Australian Food Standards group or whatever they call themselves it would not meet their definition of food grade. Clearly the farmer has meant a variant of that definition in which he merely means his cows are clean, disease free and his equipment along with the transport and storage of the milk is all of a high hygeine standard. He just happens to not pasteurise it, which means it does not mean one definition of food grade, not that it does not meet all definitions of food grade.

…and therefore it is not ‘food grade’, but rather ‘I reckon it’s pretty safe’ grade.

No surprise this is available at the Griffith shops – seems to be mecca for pseudoscience and gullible people.

“Where can I buy some bovine tuberculosis suspension in Canberra?”

Can’t claim personal knowledge of the science about this – and have no particular ‘beef’ (sorry) about raw milk – but figure if the OP wants to give it a go …

However, factual error does get me a bit concerned. And if the Dept of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries reckon that Australia has been bovine tuberculosis free since 1997
(http://www.daff.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/2182866/tb-28feb12.pdf), then I’m good to go with that.

Click on the little stupid-looking green face at the bottom right hand side of any post you’d like to quote and it’ll automatically be formatted and added to the text-box.

Can’t say that I have. When it comes to food safety I generally trust the regulators. Still warm? I’m not gonna go NEAR that one.

I reckon y’all drink too much milk and eat too much eggs and meat. Which isn’t to say that these products are as terrible as crazy vegan groups say they are, but seriously the Australian diet is over-reliant on animal products. I consume milk and eggs (not meat though), but in no great quantity.

There’s so much good non-animal-derived food out there that I think we need to move away from the “if it’s not meat, it’s not a meal” mentality many Australians have. There’s a world of choice out there.

I’d recommend Kingsland in Dickson. Sure, they’re vegan, but their food doesn’t suck.
