Are You Organic?

We are not organic in our farming practices. We grow approx. 95% of our own feed for the cows on the 200+ acres we both own and rent in the immediate area. We plant GMO-free corn and grow a grass/alfalfa mix hay that is used as feed for both the milking cows, young stock, and steers. The corn receives one application in the Spring of herbicide/pesticide to insure a measurable crop for our animals. We also will treat a sick cow with penicillian drugs when all other measures to cure the problem fails. This milk never is sold to the public. Her milk is withheld until no medicine is detected in the milk. For these reasons, we are not organic, nor do we have any plans to look for the organic certification.
