Question by c’est moi: Does organic milk mean that the cows have been treated humanely?
I’m a vegetarian, and I eat dairy. I buy cage-free eggs, but I’ve been wondering about cruelty-free milk and cheese too. I read a PETA article about how badly cows are treated at some dairy farms. Is this also true for organic farms? Is it possible to buy cruelty-free milk?

it’s not going to be guaranteed. i’m not completely positive, but i’m pretty sure organic means that the cows were fed organically, without steroids, etc. there is no way for sure to buy cruelty free milk, mainly because owners/bosses of dairy farms cannot watch how every single person treats every single cow, and i’m sure most of them don’t even really care enough to spend ridiculous amounts of money on. try other alternatives to milk. i drink soy milk (8th continent and silk are good, vanilla, chocolate, and original) but they also have rice milk, almond milk, etc. experiment with different things, but i would recommend using plain milk (not soy or anything) when cooking (i tried to make instant pudding with soy milk and it would not set or anything–stayed liquid in the refrigerator for like, 3 days before i threw it out). good luck!
