Somatotropin is naturally produced in all cows. Somatotropin regulates the cow’s metabolism and determines how efficiently the cow converts feed into milk. Bovine somatotropin (bST) is also called Bovine Growth Hormone (bGH). Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) is a synthetic (man-made) hormone that is marketed to dairy farmers to increase milk production in cows. In the event that the dairy farmer starts administrating rbST to a cow around day 57 of lactation, the cow can make more drain for a more extended timeframe. With rbST, the normal dairy animals can make an additional gallon of drain every day.
