What Are the Benefits of Organic?
Organic dairy cows can’t be treated with antibiotics or hormones, and the food they eat has to be grown with organic fertilizers and pesticides. The cows also have to spend some amount of time grazing from pasture. Organic dairy practices are generally thought to be more humane to the dairy cows than conventional milking. No studies have shown organic milk to be healthier or higher in nutrients than conventional milk.
