Wouldn't fly in South Africa.
When the big lorry comes to collect milk they take a sample from the tank.
The milk goes into the big tanker and transported to the debot.
All the samples from the route are tested and if there is any nasties in any one sample the lorries tanker is dumped and the farmer in question has to pay for the dumped milk.
We are a third world country, i'm sure the US has better methods than us.
I think he's talking bull.

Having raised horses and birthed two foals on the property, I have never known a mare that needed to be milked...not to say it's never happened but very unusual.
Getting mixed milk in Europe and other countries is fairly common, even if the label says cows milk but not at all common in the US.

Snowbeast, Charlie is from Russia. He didn't grow up on a farm. He was just asking a hypothetical question. And that was in 2013. Four years ago.

Charlie is always seeking information about the country he now calls home. He doesn't know all the rules and regulations that our government places on us. Most of them are for our own good.
