PRAIRIE FARMS COWS NOT TREATED WITH ARTIFICIAL GROWTH HORMONES
Prairie Farms Dairy, Inc., a cooperative company owned by dairy farmers, has been supplying consumers with wholesome dairy products since 1938. Our company is dedicated to addressing the needs of consumers and adapting to provide the right mix of products. An increasing number of consumers are requesting milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones, commonly referred to as rbST or rBGH. Driven by this change in the marketplace, effective February 1, 2008, the raw milk supplied by our farmers comes from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones. This declaration does not reflect any health or safety issues. The use of rbST was approved by The Food and Drug Administration in 1993. The FDA found that there is no significant difference between milk derived from rbST-treated cows and non-rbST treated cows.
