You'd better hope the herd is exceptionally well tested then. My mothers sister died from TB transmitted by unpasteurized milk. A very common childhood disease back in the 1940's. As a result when I was a child decades later it was drilled into us that raw milk was never ever to be drunk by children. Any raw milk used was just for adding to tea. I dont think any bug could survive very long in a cup of scalding hot Irish farmhouse tea.

If you have seen just how easy it is for even a very well managed dairy herd to be compromised I see no reason to change that rule.


To be fair the TB eradication programme only started in 1954 before that TB was very common in Irish cattle. The graph only goes to 1959 unfortunately Image

Also sanitation standards have improved massively since then. I am happy to take the risk personally and I don't like the government interfering in my choices in this manner. In most TB cases immune deficiencies play a large role but if you're a healthy adult I consider it low risk. For a human with a bad immune system or a child it's probably riskier but life is much more dangerous in those cases regardless.

Just to throw my tuppence/two lenny's/two cents worth in on this one - I was brought up on a farm and always drank raw milk with no problems at all. I could still drink it if I didn't have a lactose intolerance now. My husband, on the other hand, can't drink it at all as it could potentially make him very ill as he is a city boy and was brought up on pasturised milk. So it seems that if you want to drink raw milk you have to be introduced at a very early age. Obv this is anecdotal rather than scientific.

Thanks people, I have had the bejeebos completely scared out of me but draw some meagre consolation from the fact that I can knit, brew beer and grow veg.

Weird video , the first part looks like it was made by Albert Speer , then it drifts off into how to spot a counterfeit.

I do like the part where it says that on its launch if placed end to end it could have stretched to the moon and back 5 times over . Now we just need to stretch to Mars and back 10 times over .

They'll need to use a smaller font - you're not getting the necessary number of digits on there with that design.

Damn it. Emergency stash of chocolate has been decimated. Not very good at the emergency planning.

Luckily someone has already come up with a list

Quote:
What happens if the money in your pockets is worthless overnight? The future of the Euro is not looking too bright, nor is our relationship with it. Whether it crashes, we leave it or we are asked to leave – it is something worth preparing for. Are you ready for life without the Euro?

Unless you have another form of currency – gold or precious metals, it is not a good time to go shopping. The shops will be swamped with desperate people vying for whatever they can get. People consumed with fears for themselves and their families.

What happens if international trade stops because the credit upon which that trade depends is withdrawn? How will the shops be restocked? What happens if our energy supply cannot be purchased? What will power the electrical grid? Who will the government decide should get the emergency back

jesus, hardcore survivalists on z hedge
a bit too ott on the knives and guns

The Poor Man’s Guide To Survival Gear

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/guest-pos ... vival-gear

Quote:
If you have enough land to keep them, a half dozen chickens, a half dozen breeding rabbits, and a goat, will produce milk, meat, and eggs daily, providing valuable sustenance, reducing the amount of stored foods you need to use in a day, and reducing the amount of time you have to spend hunting for food in a dangerous collapse environment. Chickens and goats practically feed themselves with whatever is available on your land. Rabbit feed is easy to store, and can also be made at home. These animals are indeed worth their weight in gold.

Seeds are, of course, a currency in and of themselves. Non-GMO seed and strong gardening knowledge will save you and your family. Gardening is not as easy as it seems, however. Extensive practice, trial and error, and an understanding of regional climates will improve your crop yields dramatically.

If you are looking to survive on the cheap and avoid paying thousands of dollars for years worth of freeze dried goods, sustainable food production is the only way to go. Foraging and scavenging is NOT a reliable alternative.
