I'm on a bulk at the moment, but I usually only get organic grassfed milk (it's not raw though, still pasteurized). I can drink up to a gallon a day of that without any problems.
However, about a month ago I bought regular organic milk, and after my third glass I immediately had stomach cramps which was weird. Same thing happened the other day when I drank regular organic. This happens almost every time. I can never drink regular milk in large quantities (like 3 or more glasses) without getting indigestion or bloating.
Maybe grassfed milk really is actually that much better? And again, the grassfed milk I get (Organic Valley and sometimes St. Benoit) is still pasteurized so it can't be to do with the raw milk lactase/lactose aspect.

I don't think it's all in your head. I don't get GI problems when I drink conventional milk, but I do get pretty unfortunate skin reactions. (Acne when you're 28 is so very lovely) I can drink grassfed milk, also pasturized, with no ill effect. I normally drink the Kolona Supernatural brand, because it's vat pasturized, which means it's heated at a very low temp, so it's the closest thing I can get to raw milk. You know your body, and if your body tolerates grassfed milk better, just pick that over conventional.
