Hi Bob, thanks for your input, very interesting and food for thought. I see the cows out in the fields eating grass, at least during summer and will be looking out for them now that it’s spring, we recently had a cold snap, but it’s gotten warmer now. I haven’t seen them out in the winter unlike the wholly sheep. But I would think drinking some raw milk daily from a small, local farm in my village as opposed to the ultra-processed heavy whipping cream from major milk industry, would be by far healthier for me. I’m not sure what cows they are, but I could ask the farmer. It does state about the farm that their cows are free range.
Back in Norway where I was born and grew up, I remember eating goats cheese, and even preferring it to cows cheese, but as I was very young I doubt I noticed any inflammatory response from cows cheese, or milk or yogurt. When you’re young you don’t tend to notice such things unless there’s an actual allergy that’s the problem.
I will see what this local farm sells, I think it’s just the raw milk, but will see. I will also see if any other local farms sell raw cheese and cream. I love dairy, but conventional dairy doesn’t seem to agree with me, but then again, the homogenising processing is rather new and none of my ancestors would have consumed dairy that wasn’t raw.
