    Just go out and buy your own milk cow or milk goat.  There's nothing in the law that prevents you from drinking your own animal's milk, it just makes it illegal to sell it.

      is a strategy where a dairy "sells" a cow to a syndicate and then boards the cow for them and supplies a share of milk from their animal to each owner.

      In some states, those operations have been raided as illegal. I personally find it to be a reasonable creative solution even if I don't see the appeal.

      In San Diego, when they were talking about legalizing chickens and other small farm animals, the city balked at miniature dairy goats because they were apparently terrified that people might keep them for unpasteurized milk. I thought that was a little over the top.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
