    I hate it! I everywhere I seem to go lately that is their ONLY option. Have you read the nutrition information on it, BLAH! The cook all the good stuff out. I can't get raw locally that is another issue... but, even all my organic milks available here are only listed as ULTRA. I need at least regular pasterized cream so I can add sour cream (not ultra either) to make my butter. ....but now I can't find it [​IMG] Grrrrrrrrrr

    [​IMG] I'd give you ours, except that 1) you're too far away and 2) ours is goat milk, so you can't make butter anyway.
    Ultra-pasteurized milk is just plain nasty. It also is certainly not necessary for our health-they just cook the crap out of it so that it will sit longer on a shelf.

    why is it that drugs with terrible side effects can be sold as long as they are all disclosed (no matter how many pages it takes [​IMG]) but if a farmer sells raw milk to consumers who want it and know the (minimal) risks, they ruin his/her LIFE?!?!?!?! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
