I've been assigned to evaluate an article on the scientific something of my choice for a class, and I want to do one highlighting an article about the benefits of raw milk but I can't find one. It has to be published by a scientific magazine (National Geographic, Science, etc)
Anyone got one or know of one? Thanks!

I am hoping you can find something Caitlyn, but knowing the way science funding works (I was in academia for 5 years after my PhD - although not in the ag field), I doubt you will find what you are looking for. The problem is that scientific studies are expensive - and scientists have to find a way to pay for them. You pretty much have two choices - government or industry (possibly charitable foundations - but there's not much of that around outside of conventional cancer/disease research). Industry as it applies to milk - at least the largest portion of it - means big dairies who have NO interest in supplying raw milk: therefore no funding from there. The government standpoint on raw milk is that it is too risky (there ARE risks to raw milk consumption) - and you have to remember that government is lobbied heavily by industry...so again, researchers are going to have trouble getting grants for research on something the government doesn't want to highlight... BUT...having said all that...check out this reference from Organic Pastures website in CA...for your review. It's all about the difference in quality of milk from pasture fed as opposed to grain fed cattle - and the Journal of Dairy Science is the kind of journal your professors will be wanting you to look at (i.e. peer-reviewed) You should be able to find all kinds of info online about the benefits of food rich in unsaturated fatty acids such as conjugated linolenic acid (CLA). Hope this helps and good luck with your work Cathy

You're likely not going to find anything recent truly in support of raw milk. Modern science wants to isolate any beneficial "factors" found in natural products. Lactoferrin is a good example. It's an effective anti-oxidant, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer agent and immune-boosting powerhouse. The FDA felt confident enough to approve its use as a spray on beef carcasses to kill E. coli 0157:H7. raw milk facts
There was an article published in Certified Milk Magazine in January 1929, "Real Milk Cures Many Diseases" by Dr. J.R. Crewe, MD. Dr. Crewe was one of the founders of the Mayo Foundation, a forerunner of today’s Mayo Clinic.
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
