I have seen the promotional video from Monsanto about Posilac (BST) and it
states in the video that the cows on BST need to be fed better relative to
cows not using BST. The message from the video and from others I have
talkd to is FEED THOSE COWS...FEED THOSE COWS. Using BST does require
added feed costs.
