Act now: dairy cow hormone battle under way again

February 25th, 2009 · 5 Comments · Food in the news

Criminy. Our esteemed Legislature is at it again, once more trying to make it hard for dairies that don’t use artificial bovine growth hormone (rBGH, also known as rBST) to tell consumers so. They tried last year. Tha state ag department has given it a shot (so to speak, although I’m not entirely sure how that one came out), and now the idea is back in front of the Legislature again. So much for certain politicians’ favoring getting the government out of the way, grumble-grumble.

If you agree it’s a bad idea, or at least think it’s a colossal waste of time and government resources, you can let Kansas House agriculture committee members know at the Center for Food Safety’s True Food Network action page. Personalize the letter if you like. Or call legislators. The House roster is here.
