Bill of Rights:

Amendment IX

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The judge is so very, very wrong.............

If I understand things correctly, this is a state law and the state police power that is being discussed. I´m unfamiliar with the relevant state constitution, but it´s entirely possible that the judge is correct.

That doesn´t mean that the law is not ridiculous and paternalistic of course.

This judge is very very right on the Constitutional principle you cite.

The right to regulate dairy farms in Wisconsin is not an enumerated power delegated to the United States but one reserved to the States or the people.

This federal judge is finding there is no federal power or individual right that supersedes the power of Wisconsin to pass laws (correct or not) that regulate diary farms in Wisconsin.
