This is great news for those who do not want artificial hormones in their milk.

With this victory, farmers who don’t use artificial hormones can label that their milk as rBGH-free.

The win is the result of a long campaign that spread across the country.

Food and Water Watch states: "We’ve successfully defended farmers’ right to label and consumers’ right to know in every state the industry targeted—a lot of effort just for the opportunity to know what’s in your milk."

"Over the last several years, we’ve protected consumers’ right to know what is in their milk in states across the country, from Pennsylvania to Kansas, to this final win here in Ohio. This is a great way to end the week."
