Organic Milk on Trial

The Organic Consumers Organization reported on an article published in The Denver Post a few days ago concerning the treatment of cows that produce certified organic milk.

The issue is this: just because a cow is not treated with chemicals (via feed and shots), should that justify the "organic" label? Many farmers whose cows produce certified organic milk are being called to account for the treatment of their cows in other ways (e.g. grazing time and transition).

Of course, the simple solution to this issue is simply to get raw milk instead of organic milk. Find out more about the newest research on RAW MILK.
