Frequently Asked Questions
Are TCCA dairy cows ever treated with antibiotics?
Our dairy cows are not systematically given antibiotics. But, like humans, cows sometimes get sick and need veterinarian-prescribed antibiotics to help them get better. However, if a cow is receiving antibiotics, her milk isn’t used until tests prove that the antibiotics have cleared her system completely. As an additional precaution, every milk delivery we receive is thoroughly tested for antibiotics. If even a trace amount of antibiotics are detected in a delivery, it is disposed of and we won’t use that milk to make our dairy products.
