Story at-a-glance -

  • Senate Bill 15 (SB15) suggests amending a Tennessee code relating to milk products to make it illegal for a partial owner of a hoofed animal to drink the milk from said animal
  • The bill is aimed at snuffing out herdshare programs, which are formed between farmers and individuals that entitle you to the benefits of owning a "share" of a cow, such as a certain amount of milk each week
  • SB15 would not only make it illegal for herdshare owners to obtain raw milk, but it would also become against the law for the farmer running a herdshare to drink milk from their own cow (or other hoofed mammal)
  • Briggs reportedly introduced SB15 to close the herdsharing “loophole” after 10 children in the state were sickened by E. coli that was blamed on drinking raw milk, but no E. coli was found when the raw milk was tested
  • You have the right to choose what to eat, regardless of the government’s opinion on what’s healthy or what’s not; once a healthy food like raw milk is outlawed, it’s s slippery slope to what other foods may next be deemed too “dangerous” for the public

Who should decide what type of milk you’re allowed to drink or serve to your children? Introduced in Tennessee by Sen. Richard Briggs, Senate Bill 15 (SB15) suggests amending a Tennessee code relating to milk products to make it illegal for a partial owner of a hoofed animal to drink the milk from said animal.

While graciously allowing a person who is the sole owner of a hoofed mammal to drink the milk personally, the bill is aimed at snuffing out herdshare programs. Congress has never banned raw milk outright, but it’s banned in interstate commerce, which means small farmers can’t transport it across state lines.
