Raw Milk Advocates Plan on Having a Cow on Capitol Hill

Drinkers of unpasteurized, or raw milk, are bringing their case, and cow, to Capitol Hill.

Members of the Grassfed on the Hill group say they plan to milk a cow Monday morning near the Russell Senate Office Building to protest federal action against a Pennsylvania farmer. The Justice Department announced earlier this month that it was seeking a court order against the owner of a farm in Kinzers, Pa. The government claims the farmer distributed unpasteurized milk across state lines for human consumption.

The federal Food and Drug Administration says raw milk can contain harmful bacteria.

Protesters say they contract privately for raw milk and the FDA does not have jurisdiction.
