Is Cloverleaf Organic?
We are not Organic. The main reason we do not do organic is because we believe in the health and longevity of our registered heard. We only treat our cows when necessary after all other natural remedies fail. If we do treat with antibiotics, the milk is dumped for an extended period to insure there is no trace antibiotic in it.
If we were to go organic, any cow treated with antibiotics would not be able to stay on the dairy. We believe in treating our cows as if they are family and some have lived until the age of 18. We believe our practices are beyond organic in the way we care for our animals.
When are our cows grass-fed?
We have our cows on our pasture when weather permits. So they are grass-fed during the spring, summer, and fall. During the winter they eat a balanced diet of corn, triticale, and minerals. We do not do organic feed but we do grow our own hay and corn. We insure they get the highest quality feed and shelter throughout the winter months when grass is not available.
