huge feedlots to sell their milk as organic even though their cows
rarely grazed on fresh grass.

Dairy production is one of the most abusive ways of animal
exploitation. Although organic does not necessarily mean less abusive,
every step toward alleviating animal suffering helps us be better
stewards of God’s animals.
