Raw Milk Consumer Unhappy With Final South Dakota Rule

Raw Milk Consumer Unhappy With Final South Dakota Rule

 

The South Dakota Legislative Rules Review Committee has approved a re write of the raw milk rules in the state. The rules now include a warning label on bottle containing raw milk.  Dakota Rural Action volunteer and raw milk consumer Gena Parkhurst says she’ll be working with legislators in January to get the rule changed. She says there are several problems with the new rule including redundant requirements.

Parkhurst says the new warning label is not needed.

She says many of the rules review committee members hesitated before approving the rule to go forward. She says they weren’t necessarily for the rule but had no reason to rule against the process for moving forward.
