Hormone References On Milk Labels Subject Of Review U-WIRE, January 15, 2008 by Mandy Hofmockel (UWIRE) UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- The controversial halt of references to hormones on milk labels in Pennsylvania has been rescheduled because the issue is currently being reviewed, said Pennsylvania Press Secretary of Agriculture Chris Ryder. Initially set for Jan. 1, the halt will now go into effect Feb. 1 via a "standards document," which sets new standards for existing laws, Ryder said. "The laws were somewhat outdated," said Tom Krall, farm owner and member of the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania. There is a need to protect consumers from fear regarding the use of hormones, he said. No milk can be hormone-free because all milk has naturally occurring hormones, said Craig Baumrucker, professor of animal nutrition and physiology. "The label ought to be fair, honest and accurate," said Alan Novak, executive director of the Professional Dairy Managers of Pennsylvania. Consumers who are not knowledgeable of farm production techniques may be more susceptible to misconception, Novak said.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
