The membership of the Tillamook County Creamery Association has spoken. And the vote Monday night was 83 to 43 in favor of retaining the ban on bovine somatotropin, or BST.

The vote was called after 16 members delivered a petition to Tillamook officials seeing a vote of all of Tillamook’s member dairies to “forever prohibit the Tillamook Creamery board from ever regulating any FDA approved pharmaceutical.”

Tillamook, the nation’s second largest producer of chunk cheese, made the change in response to consumer concerns. Producer members had to sign an affidavit stating they would not use BST.
