What are the USDA standards for organic dairy products?



  1. 0 Votes

    To be labeled as “organic”, milk must come from cows that are not treated with bovine growth hormone (BGH). This hormone is often used to increase milk production. 

    Organic milk also cannot come from a cow that has been treated with antibiotics. If a cow becomes sick, she cannot return to the organic herd until she has been antibiotic-free for one year.

    To produce organic milk, cows cannot eat food that is grown with pesticides, and must be allowed access to graze in a pasture.
