National Milk Producers Federation along with the International Dairy Foods Association have sent a letter to South Dakota State Senators in opposition of legislation that would ease raw milk sales.  Federation’s Vice President for Dairy Foods and Nutrition Beth Briczinski says there are health risks for those who consumer raw milk.

Briczsinski says her group is concerned at other states where raw milk supporters are trying to make headway.

The South Dakota State Senate Health and Human Services committee tabled the raw milk legislation and will be bringing it up again at their meeting February 19 while both sides try to work out a compromise.
