    I had an email about a new bill that is trying to work it's way thru the gov.'t process... [​IMG]
    If you would like to sell milk from your cows... or buy.
    Please contact your state legislative member and tell them you would like Bill HB 1114
    authored by Mark Martin district 87---that allows Unpasteurized Whole
    Milk sales- only 100gallons a month-yes its a start but Texas is
    1000,i believe -100 gallons is nothing about 3.3 gallons a day!
    http://www.arkleg.state.ar.us/assembly/2009/R/Pages/BillInformation.aspx?measureno=HB1114

    Time is of the essence for this bill...we don't want it tabled.

    On that link, it should allow you to choose the house branch...then it will take you to a page where you pick your county...then your rep. chose his/her email....and tell them you want this bill passed.

    This bill is for Arkansans. But depending on your state, you may or may not be able to buy or/and sell milk.
    If not, I would encourage you to contact your rep. to find out what they can do to try to pass legislation to buy/sell milk. [​IMG]
