Reed’s Dairy Milk and Why we DO NOT use artificial hormones!

December 20th, 2008

I am always looking for more information concerning the use of artificial hormones in milk cows.  I am still amazed dairymen are using those hormones.  I came across and article by Jean Lee and Randy Wei and they stated:

“Many dairy producers use rBGH as a way to increase milk production in their cows, resulting in up to 20% more production. However, the hormone causes udder inflammation in cows, which can lead to the contamination of the milk from secreted pus common in udder inflammation. Also, antibiotics used to treat inflammation have been discovered in trace amounts in the milk. Such contamination leads many people to wonder whether milk is safe for daily human consumption.In addition, milk produced by rBGH-treated cows has higher concentrations of insulin-like growth-factor-1 (IGF-1). Higher levels of IGF-1 have been indicated as a potential risk factor in prostate cancer.In 1998, Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital reported in Science that men with IGF-1 levels in the highest quartile of study participants were 4.3% more likely to develop prostate cancer, compared to men with IGF-1 levels in the lowest quartile. Such a small increase in prostate cancer risk may or may not deter people from consuming milk from cows treated with rBGH. “  Our total guarantee as always is we never use any type of artificial hormone on our cows.  Consequently this gives you milk that is all natural and free from anything that should not be in milk.  Our cows may not give us as much milk as a herd using rBGH but they are giving the right kind of milk and that is what we are committed to.Our total guarantee as always is we never use any type of artificial hormone on our cows.  Consequently this gives you milk that is all natural and free from anything that should not be in milk.  Our cows may not give us as much milk as a herd using rBGH but they are giving the right kind of milk and that is what we are committed to.  We appreciate all of you that are our customers, thank you.Our total guarantee as always is we never use any type of artificial hormone on our cows.  Consequently this gives you milk that is all natural and free from anything that should not be in milk.  Our cows may not give us as much milk as a herd using rBGH but they are giving the right kind of milk and that is what we are committed to.  We appreciate all of you that are our customers, thank you.Our total guarantee as always is we never use any type of artificial hormone on our cows.  Consequently this gives you milk that is all natural and free from anything that should not be in milk.  Our cows may not give us as much milk as a herd using rBGH but they are giving the right kind of milk and that is what we are committed to.  We appreciate all of you that are our customers, thank you.
