The Independent Online
Mark Watts's article "BSE boosts demand for organic milk" (11 August) failed to mention that the regulations governing production of "organic" milk allow "organic" farmers to use "non-organic" feedstuffs for up to 40 per cent of total concentrate feed. While I am entirely confident that there is not the slightest risk of BSE actually being transmitted through milk, "organic" or not, this is surely similar to the foolish virgin who was only a little bit pregnant?
