FWIW, Deans does offer a line of rBGH-free milk and has a posted policy stating both arguments for & against the use of growth hormone.
It is a very political hot topic at this point.

Deans posted stance is to consistently offer both products & let the market drive increased production.
From Deans website: Are all Dean Foods products now artificial growth hormone-free?
Not yet, but we hope that as more consumers request artificial growth hormone-free milk, demand will spur more supply and we can offer more natural products.
and
Dean Foods is proud to offer consumers and retailers another high quality and nutritious milk choice. We are committed to providing families with milk that is fresh and delicious, and that has been assured to be artificial hormone-free by exacting regulations.

I like the choice Jim. Deans products are locked into many the managed order guides (food speak for "managers must order for company to receive vendor rebates") within my company.

I'm adding to watchlist & CAPS.

Regards,

Kent
