How Safe Is Fresh Milk?

I'm afraid to drink unpasteurized milk because of the chemicals in the feeds we give to our cows. If the cows were fed with only grass, is it safe to drink the fresh cow's milk?

We hardly drink any raw milk now probably because of getting used to the taste of pasteurized milk but growing up, we used to drink milk straight from the cows without ever falling sick. I think it is safe as long as the cows don't get into contact with contaminated feeds.

This is the problem because we don't know exactly if the cow is sick unless we check the milk in the laboratory for dangerous chemicals. I haven't tasted fresh milk directly from the cow's udder. Is the taste similar to the pasteurized milk?
