cow_grazing.jpgDairy farmers go organic before upcoming rule change. Current regulations allow dairy farmers to feed their cows 80% organic feed during most of the transition year to organic. With an upcoming change to the rules (requiring 100% organic feed during transition), many farmers are now making the switch to organic. But don't expect organic dairy prices to drop any time soon. There's been more demand than supply for organic dairy for a while now, and the market will quickly absorb all the new milk. I just hope it means more access to fresh organic local milk for people, and less reliance on the ultra-pasteurized stuff.
