substitutes for calcium chloride?

Looking for substitutes for calcium chloride?

Seems that calcium chloride doesn't exactly fit in with my scheme of natural and organic.

Calcium chloride is used to strengthen the calcium bond in milk giving a firmer curd set. Ammonium chloride is used to prevent and treat urinary calculi in bucks.

Yes, I know what each does, but I thought I was reading the Goat Forum. I didn't realize I was in the Dairy Forum.
