That doesn't even seem controvertible to me, just more so whether or not you can justify the price/fuss.
What is your rationale for the bolded?
This conversation transcends the confines of this forum, but I would point to literature from Weston A. Price etc.
Clinical trials aside, I will continue to hedge my bets that going to/purchasing from a farm where the herds are said to have been 100% pastured and the milk is minimally processed is more conducive to health than product from cows that are fed corn/grains and then the milk is quasi-boiled.
