Animals produce milk which they feed to their young. Even humans produce milk but the fluids are mainly consumed by infants. Human milk is not produced for mass human consumption. Men and women, however, do partake of milk that is produced by cows and goats. These animals are taken cared of, with its milk being harvested on a regular basis. After the process of milking, the milk can be processed and then turned into yogurt, butter, and cheese. These are then called milk products.
Because of the worldwide demand for this fluid, humans have developed a way to increase production so that the demands can be met. Breeders increase the number of female cows that they have which are then milked using machines to increase efficiency.
One way to increase the milk production output is through the use of hormones. Farmers, particularly in the United States, inject the cows with growth hormones. One hormone that is particularly used is BST or bovine somatotropin. 17.2 percent of dairy cows in the US are treated with hormones.
But the use of such a hormone has been banned by the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Australia and Japan. This is because authorities from these countries have concerns about the effects of the hormones on the animal and of course, the health of humans.
This is the reason why we are advocating the production and marketing of organic dairy. Organic means that the animal is not treated with any synthetic hormones that could be dangerous to the health of the animals and humans. Animals are also fed with grass that has not been treated with pesticides.
Organic is basically what nature has intended everything to be. There are no preservatives, no additives, no harmful chemicals and no maltreatment of the animals. These creatures are free to roam around the field so that they can graze.
They say that organic produce is expensive and that may be true. But the good thing about it is that you can rest assured that what you are consuming is good for your health and body. You really do not want to expose yourself to these chemicals that have no use in your body.
Through organic milk farming, organic dairy can be produced. You deserve only the best when it comes to the food and drinks that you partake of. Stop consuming these mass-produced, chemically-infused milk products that are no good for you body.
