Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is unlikely to sign the raw milk bill that was passed on November 12, 2013, according to statements he made during a December 3rd speech at the Wisconsin Dairy Business Association’s annual meeting.
Referring to the pathogens found in raw milk, which many believe can be dangerous, Walker told the dairy association that he would not approve any bill that put children at risk. The dairy association has asked the governor to veto the bill, which would make it legal for dairy farmers to sell raw milk and raw milk products directly to consumers on the farm.
The Wisconsin Legislature will resume on January 14, 2014, at which point the raw milk bill will be eligible for floor action.
