An Australian court has fined dairy farmers Mark and Helen Tyler $17,000 for setting up a cow-share plan that allowed individuals to obtain raw milk from cows they had an ownership stake in. A judge said that was nothing more than a scheme to get around laws banning the sale of raw milk. He said he believed the Tylers' claim that they believed the plan was legal but needed to deter them and others from trying to sell raw milk.
