Does at least 50% of the dairy come from cows that are not treated with synthetic hormones and are not given preventive antibiotics?

  • Dutch version: Komt ten minste 50% van de zuivel van koeien die niet zijn behandeld met synthetische hormonen en preventieve antibiotica?
  • German version: Kommt mindestens 50 % der Molkerei Kühen, die sind nicht mit synthetischen Hormonen behandelt und vorbeugende Antibiotika nicht gegeben?


A biological cow is not allowed to be treated with antibiotics or hormones, unless the cow is so sick that it can become life-threatening. When the cow received antibiotic more than twice, its dairy cannot be sold as “organic milk” anymore. When a cow is treated with hormones and antibiotics it will find its way in the milk which is consumed by human beings and can cause health problems. [1]
