The people have spoken, and Spartan has heard their cry of deliverance from hormone laden milk products.
I have not bought our local grocers store brand of milk in quite some time, as they were using cows treated with the growth hormones RBST/RBGH.
A couple of days ago, while hunting for the more expensive, name brand milk that advertises NO growth hormones, the dairy manager informed me that Spartan has made the switch and I could go back to buying the store brand. At nearly a dollar difference in price, I am happy to do it!


We CAN make a difference!
Pin It!

Amen! What is wrong with these people? Why shoot them full of hormones, especially when they produce enough already. Sick world.

Yay!! I love to hear things like that. I am one that (when Mona is dry) will for sure buy the more expensive kind to get the best for my family..but is wonderful when a company LISTENS!!
I am hoping to not have to buy milk for a couple months more now.

Well it's about time, I'd say. I saw something the other night on t.v. about a great idea someone had to give the cows an antibotic against "mad-cow". So I guess we will be ingesting that as well...Yuk!!!!
I must look to see if they sell a similar brand here in Canada...I would hope they do.

Thanks for the heads up.
