Questions to the RFQ were as follows:
Overnight and next day mail to Alamosa is often times a failure, please plan accordingly.
Women, infants, and young children should avoid raw or unpasteurized milk and milk products, according to a statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics in the December 15, 2013 issue of Pediatrics. A summary of the statement follows.
Raw milk and milk products from cows, goats, or sheep are a source of bacterial infections that are especially dangerous to pregnant women, fetuses, the elderly, young children and people with compromised immune systems.
The popularity of raw milk and raw-milk products, such as soft cheeses, has been growing in recent years, in part due to claims of health benefits. But those claims have not been backed up by science.
However, there is a scientific record of diseases and illnesses from raw milk, mostly caused by contamination of the product with E. coli, Salmonella, or Campylobacter. The illnesses caused by such bacteria can cause diarrhea, fever, cramps, nausea and vomiting.
From 1998 through 2009, there were 93 recorded outbreaks of disease resulting from consumption of raw milk or raw-milk products, causing 1,837 illnesses, 195 hospitalizations and two deaths.

Alamosa County Public Health Department has changed the times of tuberculin (Tb) skin testing.
Effective February 1, 2013 the new PLACEMENT time will be Tuesday mornings from 8:00 to 11:30. No appointment is necessary.
The person must then return to have the test CHECKED on Thursday afternoon between 1:00 and 3:00. Cost for Tb testing is $15.00.
