Strong Rules for Organic Pastures

Posted by youngsierrans on December 18, 2008

solarcowThe USDA National Organic Program (NOP) released the long anticipated proposed rules tightening the pasture requirements for organic livestock on October 24, 2008. This is a strong proposal that guarantees that organic milk production meets consumer expectations.

Comments to the proposed policy language must be submitted by Dec. 23, 2008.

For information on the industry perspective, see the National Organic Coalition or the Northeast Organic Dairy Producers Alliance website.
