Well, at least you know that the cows weren't few artificial growth hormones (which make them give more milk...but it effects our health and that of the cows, too, I would imagine.

About the 4% fat minimum. When I was a kid we had Ayrshires, and being a tough Scottish (originally) hill breed, they did not produce 4% butterfat. So, the dairy farmer had to carefully breed his stock to bring it up to 4%. (It was three point something originally. Jerseys, on the other hand, produce a very creamy milk and Gurnseys are not that far behind. Then dieting came in and people didn't want to eat/consume too much butterfat. But now they muck around with the milk and add back 'permeate' to get the balance just right. I prefer my milk not fiddled about with thank you very much (when I do consume it, which is only the occasional little bit of Greek yoghurt). With your cottage cheese you don't want more than 4% butterfat.

Yes, the growth hormones. To say that imply that other company's do this also only more so. To give cows chemicals to make them grow faster certainly trickle's down to humans. We live in a sad world when they have do things like this.. Look at how many overweight people are walking around. Or trying to walk around..

It's been done for a long time. I know all about it because my brother is a dairy farmer. Yet, people have only known about it in the last few years.

Yes, it trickles down to humans and effects our health - not to mention the animals'!

Yeah, weight is an issue in this country, too :(
