Organic Inspection

Washington State Inspector Les Ecklund inspects one of the fields that is candidate for producing organic hay.  This is a necessary step toward getting organic beef.  It was surprising to learn that cattle can only become organic certified by being born under organic management.  None of the mature animals in the herd today will ever be "organic"!

  1. So does that mean that only the cows born after you have become "certified" organic will qualify to have the title "certified organic beef"?
