What is pasture-raised?

All Organic Valley dairy cows are pasture-raised. Pasture-raised dairy comes from cows that received a significant portion of their nutrition from organically managed pasture and stored dried forages. Pasture-raised cows may receive supplemental organic grains, both during the grazing season and into winter months. Read more » Our co-op wide pasture requirements specify that all cows must have a minimum of 120 days on pasture during the grazing season, and they must have outdoor access to pasture year-round. They may be brought indoors because of severe weather and for the daily milking.

Supplemental organic grains can include any of the following: corn, soy, oats, barley, triticale and other small grains. Animals also receive necessary mineral supplements that sometimes include non-iodized salt. Read less »
