Don’t drink the milk from your own cow! Ruling in Wisconsin.



The State of Wisconsin, the County of Dane
has issued a ruling that I call insane.
If you own your cow
We still won’t allow
you to drink from its milk, to appeal is in vain.

What follows is an excerpt from Judge Patrick J. Fiedler (Circuit Court, Branch 8, State of Wisconsin) ruling:
(1) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;
(2) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;
(3) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to board their cow at the farm of a farmer;
(4) no, the Zinniker Plaintiffs’ private contract does not fall outside the scope of the State’s police power;
(5) no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume foods of their choice.
(6) no, the DATCP did not act in an ultra vires manner because it had jurisdiction to regulate the Zinniker Plaintiffs’ conduct.

The picture to the right is a cow with a methane recapture kit affixed. Sign of things to come?
