Best way to load models in CakePHP 2.0

I have a model where more than one database field is related to another model.
customers table has the fields
country_study and all of those fields contain an ID from the table
So in my Customer model, how am I supposed to load the Country model?
Controller::loadModel() been deprecated or is it bad practice to use this? How am I supposed to load a model in the controller?

This should be simple to understand. If you are using a controller and you need to load another model, you can call:
Then you can make calls to the model like you normally would:
App::uses is for lazy loading of classes. So you can still load a model using uses:
But then you will need to call it differently:
$MyModel = new MyModel(); $MyModel->read(null, '1');
It just depends on where and how you want to use it.
