Officials seek to revoke raw milk farmer’s bail
Hershberger quoted that he continued to sell raw milk after being ordered to stop
BARABOO, Wis. — Wisconsin officials have asked a Sauk County judge to send a raw milk farmer to jail for breaking conditions of his bail.
The state filed a motion Friday to revoke Vernon Hershberger’s bail. The motion cites a Capital Times report quoting the Loganville dairy farmer as saying he continued to sell raw milk and other products after the state ordered him to stop.
The Wisconsin State Journal reported terms of Hershberger’s bail specify he not sell or process dairy products without a license.
A jury acquitted Hershberger last month on three charges of producing, processing, and selling milk without proper state licenses. But he was found guilty of one count of violating a holding order on products on his farm after a 2010 raid.
Hershberger’s attorney calls the motion disappointing.
