Which Cows Do You Trust?

I found this article at the New York Times which Ithought was interesting.

Designed for difficult consumers, a number of dairy manufacturers are demanding less milk from their cows and charging extra for it.
The dairy group, are leaning towards the natural-foods movement by turning away from milk from cows treated with genetically engineered growth hormone.
Through labeling milk free of the artificial hormone, the dairy manufacturing can ride the reputation of natural foods, exclusive of the larger expense and particular feeds necessary to manufacture milk that can be totally certified as “organic.”As an effect hormone-free milk can be charged higher than traditionally labeled milk, but less than organic. More on the story from the
New York Times.
