  •  rBST use? (3+ / 0-)

    I knew that Monsanto sold this to Eli Lilly, but last I heard it was not banned in the U.S. and still in use, though greatly reduced due to consumer demand for rBST-free products.  The last survey I found of Wisconsin dairy farmers (2010) said that 18% were still using it.  Monsanto sold it in 2008.

    My guess is that as long as there is a buyer willing to take the milk (like some of the large cheese companies in Wisconsin) it will be used.
