Success! New USDA Rules Establish Strong Organic Standards for Pasture and Livestock

A big thank you to all of our members who took the time to write to the White House to express your concern, and to urge the President to support truly organic dairy farming practices. Thanks to your efforts organic dairy can continue with meaningful pasture and grazing rules that support the true ethics of organic farming.

From The Cornucopia Institute:
On behalf of the organic family farmers in this country I want to thank and recognize the co-op community. I can't think of a more important ally in this 10-year struggle that has resulted in the Obama administration setting up to crack down on the abuse from factory farms in organic dairy.

This is a big victory and I hope that you and your members will take pride in your important contributions,
Mark Kastel
The Cornucopia Institute
