Yet another Raw milk dairy farmer will be getting his day in court.

Michael Ilgert has a small Jersey herd in Killaloe, about 90 minutes west of Ottawa.

He runs a cow-share program where he distributes raw milk to his members.

Ilgert faces five charges from the Renfrew County Health Unit, including delivering, distributing, offering for sale, selling raw milk, and failing to cease and desist.

He faces a fine of $5,000 a day.

Durham area raw milk farmer Michael Schmidt has been fighting the same battle for over 2 decades.

He was sentenced last week to 60 days in jail to be served on weekends, for obstruction of justice related to the farm activities.

Egg Farmers of Ontario (EFO) is donating farm fresh eggs to three food banks through its Help Egg Farmers of Ontario Beat Hunger campaign.

600 dozen eggs will go to the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank.

It feeds more than 1,000 families every month, meaning the donation will go a long way towards help those in need according to its executive director, Pat Singleton.

The other two recipients are food banks located in North Dundas and Halton.
