One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A growth hormone occurring naturally in cows that is added to cattle feed to increase milk production.
- ‘By now, the majority of you have probably heard about the significant increase in milk production caused by the administration of bovine somatotropin (GH).’
- ‘Bovine somatotrophin was administered for 3 days.’
- ‘Two weeks ago the FDA said that cows could produce even more milk by being given recombinant bovine somatotrophin, a growth hormone.’
- ‘The production or importation of bovine somatotrophin in the Member States for the purposes of exporting it to third countries continues to be authorised.’
- ‘The prohibition provided for in Article 1 shall not affect the production of bovine somatotrophin in the Member States, or imports, for the purposes of its export to third countries.’
- ‘Milk from cows given supplemental bovine somatotropin is the same as any other milk.’
- ‘South Africa is one of a very few nations that permits the use of a genetically engineered hormone known as recombinant bovine growth hormone, commonly called rBST or recombinant bovine somatotrophin in South Africa.’
- ‘Consumers find bovine somatotrophin hard to swallow.’
- ‘This case raises issues pertinent to evaluating the risk from BST, bovine somatotrophin, the technology now actively being debated.’
- ‘Then the bovine somatotrophin is injected into cows to increase milk production.’
- ‘Treatment with recombinant bovine somatotrophin (bST) can enhance the development of ovarian antral follicles in cattle.’
- ‘The animals were divided into two groups: control and experimental. 30 experimental cows immediately following partus were subcutaneously treated with 640 mg of recombinant bovine somatotrophin.’
