Verdict in Raw Milk Trial Submitted: 05/25/2013
Baraboo - A Wisconsin dairy farmer has been acquitted on three of four counts in a trial related to the sale of raw milk. Dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger was found guilty on one charge of violating a holding order placed on products at his farm. This was after a 2010 raid. Hershberger could get up to a year in jail and a $10,000 fine. They found the 41-year-old not guilty of charges that he sold retail food, produced milk and operated a dairy plant without proper state licenses. His supporters have said he was targeted because he sold raw milk through a private buying club with several hundred members.
