Milk's increasing popularity led to the FDA's 1993 approval of genetically altered bovine growth hormone ("rBST
" or "rBGH"), an engineered growth hormone injected into a lactating dairy cow to increase her milk production.
As Bangor in lies in a low-risk TB area, the RBST
has long dreamt of a fourth herd in the breed's historic home.
At present, regulatory agencies of more than 20 countries other than USA have also approved the use of rBST
, a few of them being Algeria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Chile, Columbia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Hungary, Jamaica, Kenya, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Namibia, Panama, Peru, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Turkey, South Korea, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.
Such ban was imposed in Sindh in the aftermath of a recent development according to which the Drug Regulatory Authority of Pakistan (Drap) decided to direct health departments across the country to recall the synthetic recombinant RBST
injection used for increasing the production of milk in cattle.
In 1992, the FDA approved the use of rBST
for milk production after finding, consistent with its reliance on substantial equivalence, that "there was no significant difference between milk from treated and untreated cows." (75) In its guidance document addressing rBST
, the FDA issued guidance for labeling claims.
A recent study showed that treatment of Sahiwal bulls with 500 mg rbST
weekly for 10 weeks improved libido, increased serum testosterone, total leukocytes count and serum globulin (7).

pledge, which states that the farmers pledge not to treat their cows with rBST
Milk contamination became a bigger issue with the development of rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, also known as recombinant Bovine somatotropin or rBST
), a genetically engineered artificial hormone that makes dairy cows produce more milk.
Still, the reason for braving the heat here was a good and necessary one: The 38th session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission was being held this week of July 6-11, 2015, and one of the most important items to be debated on its agenda was the adoption of a maximum residue limit (MRL) for recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) or recombinant bovine somatotropin (rBST
Some cheese packages state that the milk the product contains is "not from cows treated with rBST
," or recombinant bovine somatotropin (growth) hormone, also known as rBGH.
In addition to being nonfat, the milk used to make Yumilicious' yogurt is rBST
The company has achieved much of its growth through smaller acquisitions such as the 2008 purchase of the bovine growth hormone rbST
