Senate passes measure requiring licensing of cow share programs

The Associated Press reports that the Senate has passed a measure that would explicitly include so-called “cow share” programs among the classes of dairies that must be licensed by the state.
The bill does not ban raw milk, or cow share arrangements for raw milk – just that those who participate in those arrangements must be licensed.
In addition to civil fines, people convicted of violating the licensing requirements are guilty of a gross misdemeanor for the first offense and a class C felony for the second offense.
