A contingent of state inspectors and sheriff's deputies showed up at a Sauk County farm armed with a warrant to search the property.

Vernon Hershberger says inspectors poured over his family's raw milk business, taking inventory of every refrigerator Wednesday.

Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection spokesman Lee Sensenbrenner says the agency wanted to see if the Grazin' Farm near Loganville was operating a dairy without a license.

Hershberger says about 100 families buy his unpasteurized products, including milk.

WKOW-TV reports Hershberger gave up his class "B'' dairy license in February of this year.

The state Legislature voted to legalize raw milk sales, but Governor Jim Doyle vetoed the bill two weeks ago.
