Completely unprocessed cow's milk is called raw milk. Its butterfat content lies roughly between 3.5 and 4 percent. It differs according to the cattle breed, feed and time of the year and can well be below 3.5 or above 4 percent.

Raw milk sold at dairies is only cooled and sometimes filtered. Dairies and farms selling raw milk have to comply with strict hygiene regulations and are constantly controlled.

While raw milk quite common in many European countries, dairies are not allowed to sell it to end customers in other countries such as Canada and many states of the United States. Raw milk cheese may be sold in these countries after it has ripened for more than 60 days.
