Short Description: 
Is Your Organic Milk Really Organic?: The Corporate Takeover of Organic Dairies

Mark Kastel, co-founder of the Cornucopia Institute, a progressive farm policy research group based in Wisconsin, discusses the corporate takeover of organic milk, and how corporations are getting around the implementation of organic practices while still calling their products "organic." He shares the Cornucopia scorecard that rates companies by how well they are adhering to the spirit of the organic guidelines, discusses the environmental, cultural and health benefits of supporting truly organic dairy practices, and how we can maintain the integrity of organic dairies going forward.
