  Education of the population on healthy lifestyles and awareness of the importance of good eating habits for the health of the body brought to market organic products began to replace some of the conventional diet of many people. Consumption of organic food has beneficial effects on health through high content of many nutrients and reduced pesticide or other chemicals. Supporters of organic products consider to contain fewer harmful chemicals are better for the environment and can have a greater nutritional potential. The aim study is the conversion of cattle farms from conventional farming to organic farming. Regarding quality raw milk produced in the 5 farms studied, the results obtained in the determinations physicochemical and microbiological covering the years 2016, 2017 and 2018 and for each year analyzed 50 samples, 10 samples for each farm. In 2016 it was analyzed conventional raw milk, in 2017 was analyzed in converting raw milk and in 2018 were carried out determinations for organic raw milk, so, each year took in study, conducted chemical determinations for raw milk produced in each farm, the aim being to highlight the existence of differences in terms of quality between conventional milk (2016), milk conversion (2017) and organic milk (2018).
