South Dakota Agriculture Secretary Backs New Raw Milk Rule

South Dakota Agriculture Secretary Backs New Raw Milk Rule

 

New South Dakota raw milk rule regulations go into effect December 11. State Agriculture Secretary Lucas Lentsch says there’s been a thorough rule making process and while it’s still legal to process raw milk in South Dakota, it’s important to have a quality control check point in order to protect public health.

Lentsch says while there have been requests to delay the new rule by as much as 90 days, it’s important the rule goes forward.

Three public hearings were held on the new rule before the final version was completed and went through the legislature’s rules review committee.
