We dairy, but these actions are very reminiscent of when the use of Bovine Growth Hormone (or Bst) was outlawed in our region/co-ops, due to demands originated by fast-food corps who claimed that their customers were concerned about possible health effects. (science never substantiated these concerns; in fact, cows produce growth hormone themselves)
Although our farm did not use BGH, we still felt that demands not based on science (more on emotion) set a dangerous precedent, and would lead to further restrictions on management tools producers choose to use.
