    There are lots of reasons and I don’t have a number one. I guess I’d have to combine no pesticides and no growth adds.

    I learned they use no antibiotics: Our farmers keep their cows healthy the organic way with clean living conditions, fresh air and a wholesome organic diet. If a cow does become ill, organic farmers rely on holistic and homeopathic treatments, rather than antibiotics, to bring her back to health. In fact, organic regulations strictly prohibit the use of antibiotics on dairy cows

    I always wondered about the DHA added to thier products. “Our plant-based DHA is more sustainable than fish-based DHA because it’s made from a renewable algae resource, and does not contribute to over-fishing. And like all ingredients used in organic foods, our DHA is non-GMO. In addition, the DHA used in Horizon products neither contains nor is made with hexane, a chemical solvent sometimes used to extract oils from their original source.”
