Not sure why,  but the scene from Napoleon Dynamite comes to mind:

"The defect in that one is bleach."
"Yessssssss"

thats a very smart idea to check up on things.  I never would have occured to me personally.  I prefer my cheeses pesticide free.

Share programs are the loophole in the milk distribution regs. Sometimes it works and sometimes they catch your head and hang you.
I'd love to see more Grade B licensing. I've been checking into it in my state and it is still not clear to me if it is allowed to market to individual home cheesemakers or only to a cheese plant.
I agree that you need to check up on your milk source. it's called common sense. That round-up senario is outrageous, but let's not deceive ourselves into thinking the big guys do any better. I've been around commercial dairy farms all my life. Rare to find a conscientious farmer.  :-\

In Washington, the state has noticed that "loophole" and they note that cow shares are only legal IF you are also a grade A dairy, and therefore, the cow share idea is kind of a moot point.

I'd be wary about a chow share deal, wondering what I was really paying for the product...

Spirited, I belive you meant to say, "it's a mooo point" not moot. Just trying to be helpful. ;D

LOL,

I have given up on trying to acquire raw milk for now.   Right now, I don't have a recipe that I can execute well enough over time to justify the expense/risk associated with raw milk anyway.

Hell, I cannot even adhere to a scalding temperature protocol consistently yet.

So, in the mean time, I will spend my time, perfecting my craft with cheap, store bought milk.

Someday, when I have perfected my process to the point that only a new source of raw milk will make it better, I will again look for raw milk.

If I appear a bit down, I'm sorry.  Sometimes cheese making is a bit frustrating. 

(But I keep at it.)
