A survey in late 1987 revealed that, despite widespread publicity, many California dairy farmers had not yet heard of bovine somatotropin (BST), a milk production stimulator. Of those who had, most said they would either wait to see how well BST worked on other dairies before they tried it, or they wouldn't use it on their herds at all.
