    I’ll believe the Swiss cheese story after it has been peer reviewed. The BBC article on this yesterday noted that the article had not been peer reviewed. I am not giving up on an almost 100 year old theory that has been tested for a none tested one.

    Dairy farmers in the US havent used buckets for milking in many decades. Bulk tank collection from automatic milkers has been required by most if not all dairy operations for at least a couple decades after discontinuing pick up from farmers using milk cans filled from automatic milkers. (I have relatives in rural MN who had to put up a milking parlor with a pipeline system at great expense for just this reason a very long time ago.)

    Most likely hay particles would be considered a contaminant in and of themselves; much less the bacteria and other nasties they would carry. Dairy co-ops are very fussy about these sorts of things.

    And last I knew, US swiss cheese makers still made cheese with holes. So call me a skeptic too.
