Is organic milk better for you than regular cow milk??
I think so. No antibiotics, no synthetic growth hormones, no pesticides. In addition, most organic milk is produced by small growers and NOT industrial milk farms (have you SEEN those? Lots of cows in small spaces, forced to stand in their own muck and mud 24/7 (except when they are taken into the milk house and cleaned off prior to milking). ...Can you tell I come from a line of dairy farmers? )
I'm happy to pay extra to get not only a better milk product, but to support a better environment for the cows. We have a responsibility to treat our meat/dairy animals well.

Thank you for responding. I recently read about the hormones, toxins, pesticides, and pus in regular cow milk and I couldn't even eat my cereal the next morning! I didn't know that the cows are milked as often as possible and how with organic milk, it says that they are milked according to their regular cycles. It sounds like they are treated much better and the milk is better for you. Is there a taste difference at all?
Why would it not be better for me? If it doesn't have the hormones, toxins, pesticide stuff etc. then isn't it healthier for a human?
Because there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that those substances can be transmitted to you from the cow. A cow, like all animals, is basically one big filtration system. It has a number of systems in place to keep harmful substances from getting into its milk. Its liver is probably like the size of your head or something.
