Anyway, there's no reason to drink milk if you don't want to. If you can digest lactose and have no problems with casein, then raw whole milk is a great source of calcium and vitamins and good fats. And, as someone else said, it IS freakin' delicious. Also, butter made from grass-fed Jersey cows... oh my. It's a billion times more buttery than store butter. Fantastic. BUT it's still not an essential part of a good diet. And I say that as a co-owner of several cows, cheesemaker and dairymaid.
