Organic Dairy Farmer Albert Straus Speaks Out Against USDA’s Decision on GM Alfalfa

Straus Family Creamery President Says GM Alfalfa Could Ruin Organic Dairy Industry
Press Release

(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) Marshall, CA - February 4, 2011 - As an organic farmer, I protest the USDA’s recent decision to approve the unregulated planting of genetically modified alfalfa. This is a ruling that seriously jeopardizes the integrity of the organic food chain, and could cause irreparable harm to organic farmers by ruining our ability to supply organic dairy foods to customers. I believe that allowing genetically modified alfalfa to be planted deprives consumers of their right to be certain that they are feeding organic foods to their families.
