"If this Bill goes through I'am afraid our whole battle will start all over again with DATCP. They will very likely come and tell us we will now have to register in order to distribute products from our farm. The jury has spoken and said the exact opposite."
"This Bill might be a small benefit to farmers who have a Grade A producer license. It might keep the dairy plant from kicking them off the truck if they are caught doing raw milk on the side. I feel very strongly that farmers should continue to build off of the verdict in our case. If we are allowed to distribute milk to owners why should it be any different for a farmer who has a Grade A producer license? How does a dairy plant have the right to tell the farmers that they are not allowed to distribute any of their milk to anyone else? Is this not just a way to keep the farmer down where they can handle him and force him to take the low price for their milk that they (the processors) want to give him. What we need is a Bill that puts the processors and the regulators in their respective places. Everyone of them has a position to fill in this society, but the problems that we are having these days is that most of them are operating outside of that position that has been given to them by the people.
"There are a lot more things that I could say about this Bill but I think you can get the drift! I strongly feel we do not need more regulations for the farmers; according to the jury from Sauk County all we need is more guidelines and maybe tighter reins for a few regulatory agencies that have stepped outside of the authority that has been given to them."
"I'am afraid all we are doing with this Bill is; Taking a right which we already have and turning it into a privilege which can be taken away!"
