State Representative Dawson Holle testified before the Senate Agriculture Committee about HB 1515, his bill that would allow farms to sell raw milk. Holle, who is the youngest elected legislator in North Dakota history at 19, said raw milk could make or break a dairy operation. “In the year I was born, there were 400 dairy herds across the state, now North Dakota currently has 37 dairy farms. How great would it be for farms that are struggling to be profitable without a processor if can sell their products?” Holle says this bill opens up benefits not just for dairy farmers, but for consumers as well.
