The difference between the conventional milk and the milk from organic farming is based on the concept of agrosystem.
This method requires that dairy animals are handled with a program of rotational grazing, with rounds of rest and health gaps. Moreover, the number of animals must be proportional to the area under pasture without exceeding 2 LU (Livestocks units) per hectare. The milk from organic farming must be produced from animals fed organically, and without genetically modified feed, without added alkali feed, non-protein nitrogen compounds, acids and synthetic chemicals. It is forbidden to give to animals preservatives such us urea, amino acids and coloring substances of synthetic origin.
