It appears the Milk-Man.... will no longer deliver.

York Region health unit has won a court injunction to finally shut down Michael Schmidt's raw milk operation.

Health units have been trying for years to shut him down.

Schmidt beat the first shut-down effort by claiming that his customers own the cows and he was only milking them as a service.

But in this most recent court case, the judge heard that the owners are not looking after the cattle, so he says they don't qualify.

Schmidt says he's now forced to shut down.

However, he says there could be an appeal on the basis of infringement of Canadian charter rights.

Yet another large barn fire has been destroyed.

This one was in South Perth, and housed 1,800 animals.

Members of the St. Marys, Sebringville and West Perth Fire Departments responded to the fire that was reported early Monday morning.
