You don’t have to be a craftsman to understand the adage that when the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. This type of reductionist thinking can affect many businesses, not just carpentry, but whenever such a thought process is applied, it distracts people from actually solving issues because their attention is focused on the wrong problem – and hence, the wrong solution.

FDA Milk Safety Report Comments


In response to the new FDA milk sampling report released March 5, 2015, dairy farmer and veterinarian Dr. Karen Jordan says the results show that the nation's milk supply is safe.


The milk survey was released by the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, which sampled the raw milk from nearly 2,000 dairy farms in 2012, and conducted extensive laboratory testing on each milk sample for 31 different pharmaceutical compounds. It found that more than 99 percent of the samples were free of residues, “underscoring the safety of the milk supply,” according to the FDA. Read more from the NMPF news release.
