Why I Drink Organic Milk

by Jon Henshaw

Organic MilkI’m someone who loves milk, but I don’t like the way modern farmers raise and milk their cows. Most of the milk that’s sold at the grocery store comes from cows that are injected with hormones to get greater milk production, and their environment and food are often sub-standard. That’s why my wife and I go out of our way to buy organic milk. Not only does it taste better, it’s better for our bodies — and the cows.

I recently spotted this information on the side of a Horizon Organic milk cartoon. It came with a blurb about their growing family farms that adhere to their strict organic milking process. I was surprised to find out the strict criteria family farms have to meet in order to be a part of their network of organic dairy providers.

How Do You Raise an Organic Cow?

  • Give her wholesome certified organic food, fresh air, and access to pasture that’s not treated with dangerous pesticides. Plus, plenty of friends, of course — every cow needs a herd.
  • Keep her healthy the old fashioned way, with a clean environment and attentive natural and homeopathic care — no antibiotic drugs.
  • Let her give milk according to her natural cycles, without the stress of added growth hormones.
  • Shower her with attention every day. After all, everything grows better with a little TLC!
