I was just kinda wondering if and howthey test for all these things.

I don"t grow organic or non GMO at this time.

I use to try to grow Non GMO but half my loads would get rejected as Non GMO cause of pollen from my neighbors.

Was also wondering if a guy was raising organic meat or milk and bought corn that was non organic how would anyone know at the meat counter.

Cause unless I am mistaking most of organic cert is the honor systen depending on the records the organic guys keeps.

I"m thinking organic feed may be in short supply this year, as is all feed, and a little cheating may go on and who would ever know.

Just thinking out loud here on a cold Iowa morning.

I have a friend who sells used equipment.

Had a vegetable grower in looking at a tractor.

He asked if they were organic.

Reply: "No, we try not to use any more chemicals than we absolutely need to, but we have a neighbor certified organic and he uses a LOT of chemicals".

I sold a bunch of baleage to an Amish organic farmer that turned the milk into cheese and sold it for big money. When I was in his office and he was writting the check to me, I noticed some of the cheese. I kind of blurted out, without thinking, "oh, I didnt know you were organic." He got real sheepish and said. "Well,umm. since its mixed grass baleage I figured you really dont spray it since you would kill the clover..." I had sprayed with Basagran and 24DB, but that was his problem,not mine....
