There has been a run of new ads for Garelick Farms (may be just a New England area company) that sells thier milk as “growth hormone free”.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t beef cattle given growth drugs and not milking cows?
Why would milking cows recieve growth drugs anyway?
It appears to me that they are claiming something that’s already a given in the dairy industry and playing on the whole “organic & drug free” thing.
The ad never mentions whether or not thier cows are “drug or hormone free” just “growth hormone free”.
Seems a bit disengenuous to me.
