Organic milk's shelf life

I've idly wondered about this from time to time but never tried to find an answer - why does organic milk last so much longer than regular milk? I started buying it partly because of the antibiotic issue, but have kept buying it because it suits my erratic like/dislike relationship with milk. This weekend, Scientific American briefly looked at why organic milk lasts so long, which turns out to be due to ultrahigh temperature processing instead of the way that it's produced.
