Are Cumberland Dairy products free from artificial growth hormones?

Because the vast majority of our customers and their consumers are looking for dairy products that are free from artificial hormones, we have decided to produce products that are made with milk from cows that have not been treated with artificial growth hormones (rBST). All fluid milk, creams and ice cream mixes manufactured by Cumberland Dairy, is from farmers who pledge not to use artificial growth hormones on their herds.

Since cows naturally produce BST, bovine somatotropin, dairy products cannot be tested for the artificial version rBST” (recombinant bovine somatotropin). Even though this drug has been tested and approved by the FDA for use in dairy cows, the farmers that supply milk to our facility have pledged not to use artificial growth hormones
