County Market cows are not treated with artificial growth hormones

The dairy we work with is a cooperative company owned by dairy farmers and has been supplying consumers with wholesome dairy products since 1938. We are dedicated to addressing the needs of our customers and adapting to provide the right mix of items for you.  An increasing number of customers are requesting milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones, commonly referred to as rbST or rBGH. Since 2008, we have made sure our milk cows are 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.
