Who is the producer that you are talking about?
But does Star K turn on a light bulb for pasteurizing?
But they are Star-K!!What god is that?
Personally, if both are kosher according to shulchan aruch, I would rather use the milk from a producer who has the freshest product and whose prices are cheapest (not necessarily in that order)

http://daviedairy.com/management.htmlThe oylam should reach out to Mr. Berman, a frum Jew who owns Davie Dairy in Florida. He davens at the Palm Beach Synagogue, Rabbi Moishe Scheiner, rov. He is the only Jew in the Florida dairy industry and knows the business as his family has been in it for 4 generations going back to Deutschland.http://vimeo.com/24729062More about Mr. Berman here
you have to know what really happened: Why the Coop stopped taking Pride of the Farm:Rotschild of the Coop was trying to bully Rabbi Tendler of Pride of the Farm. To try to flex hi smuscles he said last week, ok we arent taking Pride of the Farm this week! He thought that Pride of the Farm would come running to do his bidding...INstead, Pride of the Farm told him: Get lost! You are finished, and we arent supplying you anymore! In other words, they refused to be cowed to the bullying - despite Coop being their biggest customer. So coop had to go and get Dvash Milk with all their kashurus issues... and put up a sign that do to technical difficulties we will be having Dvash instead of Pride of the Farm!
http://fuegomundo.com/blog/st-pattys-day-at-fuegomundoRestaurant under AKC is celebrating St. Patrick's Day. Patrick is a priest that was born 1700 years ago. The church made up a dumb legend about him that he had the matteh Moshe. This place is for all purposes a goyish nightclub that happens to have kosher food. There is mixed dancing to wild music and the waitresses wear official outfits that make them look like zonas. Most of their chests are uncovered. No one can make beracha on food there. Rabbi Ingber from the Sandy Springs shul is giving his kabbalah class is that G-d forsaken place.
Whats about the bugs in the milk?Is Star-K bug checking method OK with you, Reb Yudel?
why is machmirim so watery? are there federal guidelines about how much if any water can be added to milk?
More than that Rabbi Yisroel Meir Hirsch is an Erlicher Yid, & Pride of the Farm, does everything from milking to boteling & labeling on site. All injected cows are removed.Anyone could take a tour. The owner is not Jewish, but their is a couple who are on the premises even on Yom Kipur, if the husband goes to Shul the wife will stay at the farm.Other places milk in one place bottle in another label in another, & switch farms at different times. Everything at POTF is cholov yisroel.I didn't know the Co Op dropped them, but it could be because Shoprite was cheaper at only 2.49 so they were upset.Who knows?I thought Obama pays for most of the milk in Lakewood anyway.
For all you in gesheft that try to farkoif your wares to Wal-Mart at their HQ in Bentonville, Arkansas. The kosher catered meals are under the hashgucha of Chabad of Northwest AR. Chabad seems to have even hijacked the shul that was started by the Syrians or diverting mispalelim to their own minyan.
Spotlight. This place combines your two specialties. Avoda Zarah AND Znus.I bet you feel right at home (and hungry - the heter for all your narishkeiten) over there.
Chaim Schwartz needs to get off the Internet from attacking Spotlight every hour and get out to the restaurants owned by mechalelei shabbos to see what they are up to.
It took me a awhile to realize Rabbi Yisroel Meir Hirsch is none other than HaTzadik Ira Hirsch, Shlit"a. He and Pride of the Farm have been abused and bullied by Rothschild (but of course, totally "l'shem shomayim" k'darko)long enough- it's about time someone stood up to Zeev.
http://maimomatziv.blogspot.com/2010/02/goyish-satmar-hechsher.htmlChaim Schwartz's old pals from Boston have some really "intelligent" things to blabber about regarding Devash Farms milk. It makes as much sense as comebacks lemaan kvod Queens Vaad.

http://thejewishchronicle.net/view/full_story/757172/article-West-Virginia-farmer-to-begin-raising-kosher-beef--?A few years ago an Irish lady Mrs. Jones who owns a farm in West Virginia started a kosher shechita shutfus with a Jewish woman in California who is married to a goy named Tobey who may or may not have been megayer. Jones was driving the cattle 4.5 hours each way to shecht around Baltimore and then drive them back to sell as kosher. Tobey says she was consulting with her rabbi. Not entirely clear who that is but she does daven at least sometimes by Rabbi Fuss at Chabad of Riverside, California. Considering that Jones drove the geshochtenna meat back herself, not clear how it can be sold as kosher.They discussed at the time making their own bais shechita.http://www.lucknowfarms.com/KosherBeef1.htmlNow in 2012, they have their own "kosher" operation but don't say who certifies it. They seem to be selling both kosher & treif. Oddly enough, the website comes complete with a chazan singing Dror Yikra.Lucknow Farms LLC2580 Carlton PlRiverside, California 92507Somehow, Jewish newspapers now consider Tobey's husband to be a kashrus industry expert:http://jewishworldnews.org/2010/04/22/kosher-meat-prices%E2%80%94eating-a-hole-in-your-wallet/In comparison to the estimated nearly one million kosher chickens slaughtered each week, industry analyst Ronald Tobey estimates that only 5,000 cows were slaughtered each week for the kosher market before the Agriprocessors shutdown. Tobey’s numbers are backed up by a 2008 interview on jcarrot.org with Rabbi Zalman Rothschild, a former Agriprocessors kosher supervisor, who said that 3,000 cows per week were slaughtered at his facility. Accounting for Agriprocessors market share, Tobey’s estimate makes sense.According to USDA statistics, over 650,000 cows are slaughtered each week for the general market, so the kosher beef market makes up less than 1% of the nation’s beef market. According to the USDA, over 22 million chickens are slaughtered each week, meaning kosher chicken makes up nearly 7% of the whole poultry market. The miniscule kosher beef market means that even a slight disruption in supply may play havoc with availability & price.Agriprocessors maintained some chicken production during its bankruptcy, and other large kosher poultry firms, mainly Empire Kosher, filled any market void. While the poultry market was attractive to large firms, the beef market void has been filled by new small companies.“We’ve seen a lot of new suppliers,” said the OU's Rabbi Elefant. Golden West Glatt Cattle Co., started by a supermarket owner in Denver, began national kosher meat sales in July, 2008. Small collectives have popped up to support regional buyers including Mitzvah Meat in the Hudson Valley, with many suppliers selling via the internet.Even with new suppliers, kosher beef remains more expensive than non-kosher beef. A 2008 USDA report lists the average price of non-kosher beef as $4.32/lb. Tobey estimated 2008 kosher beef prices at $11.32/lb. Informal surveys of online meat sellers conducted for this article in 2009 & 2010 show an average price per pound of $10 to $13, depending on cut. Low volume inefficiency & the fees charged by kashrut certification agencies both contribute to higher costs.“As a consumer, I can say that the price of both beef & chicken went up when Agriprocessors closed,” said Rabbi Zushe Yosef Blech, a former OU regional kashrus director, director of Kosher certification for Kehillas Bais Benzion in Monsey & author of Kosher Food Production. “There was never a supply problem, and over time prices came back down a bit.”

http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/137606/jewish/Fishing-for-the-Facts.htm Someone posted this ridiculous story last week that is nothing more than OK press release intended to unjustly pat them themselves on the back.Let the OK fix some of their real kashrus problems before they start picking on Dutch flounder as part of an act to make themselves look good. This is not news These fillets were coming in with the Chief Rabbinate of the Netherlands hashgocho & the text on the label made it clear there was no mashgiach temidi. The Star-K and many other kashrus orgs then reminded their mashgichim not to accept the product even though it was being distributed by a kosher food broker. But do you really think the salmon fillets coming in from Central & South America, and the Faroe Islands (Denmark) with OU and Kaf-K have a mashgiach temidi?! And when you get Dagim fillets from China with a small piece of skin still on that tells me that there was no mashgiach. In short you never know what the supervising organization relies on. But who says that one cannot rely on the recognition of fish? And is there any proof that there is no neemanus of expert recognition & inspection.....
http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=254108&R=R5The chief rabbi of Amsterdam, Aryeh Ralbag, was temporarily relieved from his post Wednesday by the board of the Orthodox Jewish community, after he signed a document describing homosexuality as an inclination which “can be modified and healed.”Ralbag, a US-born Orthodox rabbi nominated to head the Amsterdam community in 2005, had recently cosigned the document titled “Declaration On The Torah Approach To Homosexuality,” which called on “authority figures” to “guide same-sex strugglers towards a path of healing and overcoming their inclinations.”“Rabbi Ralbag’s signature may give the impression the Orthodox Jewish community of Amsterdam shares his view,” a press release by the community’s board, known the NIHS, read. “This is absolutely untrue. Homosexuals are welcome at the Amsterdam Jewish community.”Ronnie Eisenmann, chairperson of the board, added: “The community regrets that the chief rabbi cosigned this document and distances itself from this view.” He also offered “heartfelt apologies to anyone who may have been hurt by the rabbi’s signature.”“The board has decided to (temporarily) relieve the chief rabbi from his duties, in any case until he travels to Amsterdam to discuss the issue.”Esther Voet, former editor-in-chief of Dutch Jewish weekly Nieuw Israëlietisch Weekblad, supported the decision to relieve Ralbag of his duties. “I think it’s the only right position because the policies of rabbi Ralbag have come repeatedly under scrutiny for a while now.”Voet, currently vice-director of CIDI - the Dutch Jewish community’s watchdog on anti-Semitism – said there was a cultural gap between the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community of Brooklyn and the relatively liberal Dutch Orthodox community. Her organization called on Ralbag to step down as chief rabbi on Tuesday, following his signature on the document.“The Dutch Jewish neshoma (soul) is unique. We have special rules, like waiting only one hour before eating meat and dairy. We need a chief rabbi who is aware of our traditions and that’s something you cannot fly in two times a year,” she said.
Don't kid yourself. Schwartz obviously enjoys knocking heads with the Queens Vaad bashers judging from all his smart alecky comments. But where does he find the time?
Does anyone know if the fish under Rabbi Shaked in Chile is reliable?
what is the story with golden flow

Er iz duch a kanoyee lemaan kvoid Qveens Vaad.Tziz emess az der Kloizenberger Rebbe hut gezugt az an echte kanoyee loift nisht far kano'us, ober Rabbeinu is not goress him because Klausenberg is part of Tzanz that does not join the Agudah or for that matter also not KVH or Queens Vaad.
kashrus insider said:"And when you get Dagim fillets from China with a small piece of skin still on that tells me that there was no mashgiach. In short you never know what the supervising organization relies on".================================I'm not Dagim's spokesman, but if there's a skin tag with even one fish scale left on, then you're getting the very best hechsher, from Hashem himself! (as is written in the Torah)I take issue with the innuendo in your comment, since I take it that every RELIABLE kashrus organization that claims there is a mashgiach temidi on premises actually has one. If you have concrete facts to support your statement, then put it on the table for everyone to know about and discuss. If you don't have any hard facts, then go study some שמירת הלשון.The problem remains however, how we define what's considered "reliable"...From my experience, one of the factors by which to measure a reliable hashgacha, is the very basic requirement that there be 2 (TWO) mashgichim at the factory supervising the same shift. This is an obvious necessity for reasons obvious to experienced mashgichim in the fish kashrus field.I know for a fact that there are some machshirim who delude themselves that only 1 mashgiach is enough. Anybody insisting so, is clearly clueless about supervising a fish plant, and is blinded by the extra cost a second mashgiach may entail.So if you're a concerned consumer, then you should verify if the hashgacha has 2 mashgichim at the plant at the same time, or perhaps maybe only 1. The answers you receive may be very telling...
What your problem Yudel? You make it sound like kashering an aino ben yomo for dairy is a bidieved. You know yourself thats not true.Why are you trying to fardray the oilam???
why don't you post the new letter against your buddy knoffler?
Oh please! They were looking to get rid of Ralbag in any case but some Liberals decided to make headlines over the gay issue. Everyone signed the same letter as Ralbag that gays are kranker vos darfen a refuah, from chassidishe to the Lakewood roshei yeshiva to some big names in YU.Ralbag was very unpopular there. The Liberals think he is too frum and the frumme think he is a farce because of the Amsterdam eruv and Triangle K. I have also heard an earful from Dutch Yekkish emigrants who feel he has no right to call himself the Gaavad veRaavad d'Amsterdam. Ralbag had a Ponivizher yungerman running the Dutch kashrus for him. I wonder where he stands now.
how come you dont have the letter that was hanging in yeshiva

Uh Oh. How come Spotlight did not sign???
The Gay Avec list was so long I didn't read it, but I didn't see Knopfler on it?
Spotlight is not a public person but you are.Isn't it telling that there is NOT ONE signature of the 100+ rabbis on the Queens Vaad?!There is a Queens Vaad rabbi who, min hahapuch hu, signed the the PRO-GAY letter with Avi Weiss. That was the Queens Vaad's "contribution" to yishuvoi shel oylam for the toayvaniks who don't produce future generations.
Spotlight is not a public personVery well said:Spotlight is a public Chaya.Spotlight is a public NON-person.Again, he said it. Not us.
Chaimel @ 12:39 pm, your comebacks have gone from lame & childish to just plain infantile.You can't handle the truth. You and the other Queens Vaad rabbis haven't signed the declaration of Torah principals. Why? Because the Far Left modern orthodox that are the roiv of Queens Vaad shuls membership will get angry? This is the same reason why you will not implement a real kashrus standard.And that a Queens Vaad rabbi signed the PRO-GAY declaration with Avi Weiss? It looks like you started feeling the heat of public exposure ...http://statementofprinciplesnya.blogspot.com/Because on the latest update on Jan. 15th, Rabbi Barry Kornblau's name has disappeared. Not that his hashkofos have changed. It was just too disgraceful for you to have it in the public eye. Just like one of the guys you should not be giving hashgocho to who made his name disappear from the letterhead of a non-orthodox movement after it became public knowledge.Meanwhile the Jan. 15th update for the pro-gay declaratio features a new signature of a Queens rabbi, Charles Sheer. Is he a member of the Queens Vaad too?
Fri Jan 20, 02:12:00 PM 2012Don't forget Baloney guy that since you live in Queens the Queens Vaad represents you too. So if any Rabbi signs an anything its just like you signed. whether you like it or not.
Rabbi Jacob Traub of KORC kosher in San Francisco of all places also signed the pro-gay letter.http://www.californiafamilyfoods.com/page/_files/Kosher-Certificate-2010-2015.pdfHe is not a serious hashgocho and now that he is calling himself the "Badatz" of San Francisco, maybe you should look into whether they pay better than the Queens Vaad. A Badatz can always use a yeshivishe looking maniac.
A Badatz can always use a yeshivishe looking maniac.But it also can't exist without a NON-yeshiveshe pill-taking sicko such as spotlight.
i think you are confusing rabbi charles sheer who is a talmid of the apikoros irving greenberg in riverdale with rabbi charles shulson who gives hashgacha on the baba restaurant in queens. rabbi sheer also gives hashgacha but that is in manhattan. i will agree that no one should eat from either of them
"since you live in Queens the Queens Vaad represents you too"Napoleon keeps choloming about how Big his Empire is.Get it through your thick skull that kol haboirayach achar hakuved, hakuved boirayach mimenu.What a galachter!
Reb Shlomo Miller says he's afraid of Zeev Rothchild. It's aledged that was the answer when Rav Moshe Heineman asked Reb Shlomo to inspect the pride of the farm facility.
Napoleon is back to his old tricks of calling people mentally ill, on medication, moderniks. When he needs a change of scenery from shreying apikorsim, that's what he does.
