Organic Coffee Vs Plain Coffee – Intro

What is required for milk to be labeled organic? This is a common question especially when a person contemplates the additional cost associated with it. There are four requirements that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has established in order for a product to be labeled USDA Organic Milk.

1) NO ANTIBIOTICS – One requirement of organic milk is that the cows are not treated with antibiotics. In non-organic milk production if a cow needs antibiotics it is treated and then returned to the herd once tests show that it is antibiotic free. If a cow in an organic herd needs to be treated with antibiotics, it is not allowed to return to the herd for 12 months.
