In #Food news, I was inspired by the video linked below on #Amish cup #Cheese (#Schmeirkase) to look for raw #Milk here in #Spain .

The usual #Dairy industry propaganda against raw milk is of course among the top search results, but I did find one provider! Shipment should be on its way shortly Insha Allah. Unfortunately shipping costs are high, but I think being able to make my own quality #Yogurt and #CottageCheese at home is worth it.

I'm also looking forward to tasting the milk itself, which will be reminiscent of the milk that my family used to have delivered right to our door 50 plus years ago in eastern #Pennsylvania . Cream on top!

Quite the history on this farm here: (a nice website to boot)

From their About page:

"The farmstead where Hardy's Holsteins calls home in Tipton, MI was the homestead of Ezara Simmons, Gregg’s great- great grandfather in 1831. The farm has been continually operated by the same family for 187 years with various agricultural enterprises from Percheron show horses to Suffock sheep to Hampshire hogs and since 1961 Registered Holstein dairy cattle."

I’m seldom out and about this early, but needed to pop up to my doctor for some bloodwork. I’m feeling better, but they want to make sure everything is copacetic. It was a quick visit, in and out in minutes. (Results will come later.)

This is one of the rare times I didn’t have a list for Trader Joes.

It was both delightful and kind of confusing — I needed a plan or vague goals. (All of this a common theme that can apply to many things.)

I wandered leisurely, happy to be out and about.

Dairy is cruel, be it organic or not. Cows are forcefully impregnated, their calves stolen at birth, and their milk taken for human use. The process repeats for years until the cow can no longer stand, then they are killed. Their calves are either killed for veal (if male) or forced to live a life producing milk just like their mother.

Your #dairy product is not worth the suffering and death of innocent, sentient beings. Be fair, be #vegan.

I'm seeing a recent uptick in articles about feed additives for cattle to reduce #methane emissions. I've been following the story for about a decade and I'm increasingly convinced that it's a media strategy by the #livestock industry to convince people that #beef and #dairy are fine, actually, rather than a genuine attempt to tackle the emissions of the sector.

There are several important caveats to keep in mind whenever reading one of these articles:

Feed additives only work in feedlots. While feedlot finished beef is very common in Australia, the bulk of the emissions come from animals who are on pasture. The only way this technology could feasibly put a dent into the Australian livestock sector's emissions would be a radical intensification of the beef industry, which needless to say would be terrible for animal welfare.

A decade ago, the feed additives were a few years away from mainstream adoption by farmers. A decade later, we're still getting news stories about trials and how the tech is a few years away from mainstream adoption by farmers.

The dramatic reductions seen in early studies just didn't hold up in larger studies. We often see this pattern with new solutions where larger and larger studies show smaller and smaller effects. Even if the effects hold up at the rate that the most recent studies show, beef would still be the most climate intensive food in common consumption (with the possible exception of lamb/mutton).

Livestock also has enormous land use emissions (which are counted in Land Use, Land Use Change and Forestry rather than Agriculture so they're hidden by the carbon sink that is our forests unless you dig down into the figures). Feed additives do nothing to address these directly (intensification would reduce this, but again this would have significant animal welfare consequences and there are few people in the industry are willing to openly advocate removing cattle from pasture).

[This is a low-quality translation of a danish article]

-- Larger, faster, wilder: A farm country's victory is killed --

The Netherlands has the world's most advanced and successful industrial farming. No one can grow a tomato more efficiently, and no one sends more meat around Europe. Now the nature stops.

WAGENINGEN, HOLLAND – Central in the Atlas Building at Wageningen University stands a young woman at a small podium and reads high from the latest climate report. She doesn't cry, the voice is not raised, her little protest summer as a mouse in the big floor.

Around her sit African, Asian and Dutch students. Some eat lunch, some make homework, some speak together with a cup of coffee. Some are as her highly concerned about the climate crisis, others are more admitted by what you have always been admitted to the Wageningen University: to optimise, streamline and increase production. Develop new technologies that enable us to force the most possible food out of at least possible soil with at least possible effort. Grise with several ribs, cows with greater udders, plants with many tomatoes.

The famous University is one of the sacred halls of the industrial farming. A cathedral over the borderless progress and a crucial part of what until a few years ago was considered an unconditional Dutch success story.

The Netherlands is a small country, less than Denmark, but one of the world's leading agricultural nation. Non-organic vegetables or the non-organic beef in the supermarket, are often produced in the Netherlands. No one can cultivate as many tomatoes, cucumbers or peppers per square metres as the Dutch. No one sends more meat around Europe. And no places have food production less common with Jens Hansen’s farm. Dutch agriculture is a science. It is milking robots, vertical cultivation and fully automatic greenhouses.

Last year the Netherlands earned more money with agricultural exports than Brazil. A country that is otherwise more than 200 times as big. In certain statements, the Netherlands is the second largest exporter of food, surpassed only by the United States. However, it requires that you also count the products that simply arrive in Rotterdam port to be distributed beyond Europe.

But no matter how to do it, the Dutch produce almost unlogical amounts of food. It is a high-tech power performance that has grown out of the Wageningen University, which has now established itself as the global center of the food industry. Food Valley calls the cluster of companies located around the university. The answers to Silicon Valley.

For more than 100 years, and in particular after World War II, Dutch agriculture has gone from victory to victory under the motto greater, wilder, faster. In recent years there has been a pressure to get it down again.

“Please, the list two the science and ACT,” stands at the podium in front of the young woman. Behind her has a statue of the Greek corn god Demeter from 1879 got a tie for her eyes. It is also part of a climate action.

I was actually well warned that the climate activists were moved behind enemy lines. Over the phone a pleasant farmer and former student named Judith told me that Wageningen once was a fantastic institution, but that I should fit:

“The hand is also a part of professors who are, what to say, vegan.’

And students, apparently.

“Polarization has also reached Wageningen,” says the person from the University’s press staff, Jan Bol – a mid-age man with a friendly, round head.

“A lot is going on about climate, about how we feed people. Some students think we do too little, the peasants think we do too much,” he says.

In other words: Here in the Atlas building you are not doubt that agriculture is also in the Netherlands on a cross road. You can continue with full speed towards bigger, wilder and faster. Or you can change it all, cut down on meat production and produce with more sustainable and less profitable methods. You can also try to make a little of it all at once.

- Dutch-Danish recipe for success -

Krijn Poppe is not vegan. He was employed at the University of 1981, when the progress still had free races. In fact, there were departments for both sociology and environment.

“You just didn’t listen to them,” says it now retired agricultural farmers.

It was perhaps stupid, but it is obviously easy to say now.

The Netherlands emits too much nitrogen. It strangles the streams, pollutes the groundwater, and destroys biodiversity. And it is completely considered the production of agricultural animals. Of course, they are about four million Dutch cattle significant contributions to the country’s CO2 budget. Over half of the discharges from the global food industry come from the animal production, a large study for a few years ago. Just like some years ago, we hopefully about peak oil – that oil production had to have the top – you are now talking about peak meat.

» We have far more agricultural animals than the climate can hold and the problem is the intensity of agriculture,” said one of the researchers behind the study, Pete Smith, to The Guardian earlier this year.

“I’m not surprised that the Netherlands is first in this conflict, because the country also has the biggest problem. «

The battle does not mention well. In fact, it was an alien political conflict, which this month finally became the government to break together. But the coalition has long been collapsed during the weight of the last year's massive resistance to the plans to reduce the number of agricultural animals and thus live up to the EU environmental requirements.

» An inevitable transition,” the government has called it. Nevertheless, it is still not managed to implement plans. On the contrary, it has been pushed out of balance. Huge protests, burning strawballs, political division, intense polarization between country and city.

And for what? To save a farm that might be technological world-leading, but which no longer means more for the economy than 1.4 percent of bnp.

It is easy to say that you should have listened to the warnings that sociologs and environmental researchers once tried to penetrate with. And it is easy to say that the Dutch should now take large parts of the strong polluting agriculture.

- The Dutch created the Netherlands -

In the sense there is a part of the collapse between the Netherlands and Denmark, Krijn Poppe tells. Two countries with many of the same problems – two countries that have gone into the same trap if you want. Two agricultural countries who are victoring themselves. To understand the trouble we are now in, you should also understand how we did end here, Poppe believes.

Denmark and the Netherlands have largely followed the same historical curve. When globalisation hit agriculture last in the 1800s, you could not as France and Germany turn inwards and protect its peasants against cheap American grains. The home market was too small. The Netherlands and Denmark were – and are – small, open export economies.

» They did the only thing you can do when the whole economy is bound to sell food abroad: They repented, they competed, they innovated,” he says.

Whipped to produce better and cheaper than the others, agricultural universities and research institutes were opened. The award in the Netherlands, Landboskole in Denmark. Governments supported the development of new technologies. Today you might call the industrial policy. With the andels movement, agriculture was organised in greater communities with higher productivity. Especially in the Netherlands there was also what you can call an agroindustrial complex. Rabobank is still one of the world's largest agricultural banks. Unilever is still one of the world’s largest food companies. FrieslandCampina is still one of the world's largest dairy. Everyone can draw their roots to the end of the 1800s, and all they have with great success and for great pleasure for ordinary Dutchmen followed the recipe: bigger, wilder, faster.

It is called that God created the earth, but the Dutch created the world. Nearby as a giant Lynetteholm project (an artificial island in Copenhague) is just 20 percent of the country mass established in the sea. With great effort, you have cultivated the true soil in the east. An area that corresponds to half times Manhattan is covered by giant Drishus complexes – small towns of glass.

Today, the Dutch can cultivate up to 100 kilos of tomatoes per year on a single square meter, and every milk cow gives average nearly 10,000 liters of milk per year.

The goal of bnp may only contribute with quite small numbers, but the high-tech agriculture has a symbolic force. It is the monument to the fact that the Netherlands with particularly great success has championed nature and bolted in the modernity. The Netherlands is a agricultural country.
Intelligent solutions

Just because nature has now come back to revenge, of course, you can not say that the Dutch must necessarily turn the back to the modernity, technology and demand to optimise. As it applies in all corners of the green transition, the technology is in its way both the cause and the solution to the problems.

Although the enemy has penetrated the Wageningen, even if Demeter has been given a tie for the eyes, and the IPCC report sums around the Atlas building, the University is not marked by ambitions to return to a more traditional before state-of-the-art agriculture.

Lab Milk is more advanced than Lab Meat and it is already here.

"Precision dairy doesn’t have cholesterol, lactose, growth hormones or antibiotics (though those with dairy allergies should beware)."


"The World Economic Forum and many scientific reports suggest cheese generates the third-highest emissions in agriculture after beef and lamb."


"The world’s demand for dairy keeps going up. But it’s not necessarily liquid milk. As countries develop and have burgeoning middle classes, the demand for liquid milk drops and enthusiasm for cheese and other products skyrockets."
