State pulling back on some of its proposed raw milk regulations


After an outcry from producers,The South Dakota Department of Agriculture is rethinking some of the regulations they proposed for the sale of raw milk.

The law would require producers to follow a number of safety precautions before they could sell the milk or even consume it themselves.

People who produce the milk say the rules were too strict and as a result the Department of Agriculture is reworking the guidelines.

Dawn Habeck owner of Black Hills Milk says, there aren't many people against the sale of raw milk and believes that's why the law is being tweaked.

"I believe they didn't get any response as to people supporting what they were trying to do with these rules so they went back to the drawing board and they are supposed to be redoing these rules,"said Habeck

State dairy regulators plan to hold a meeting in pierre on July 26th for open comment on the revised rules proposal.
