You'd think agribusiness would welcome Michael "rBGH" Taylor's promotion to deputy commissioner of foods last month.

Now bovine growth hormone (rBGH sold as Posilac), owned by Eli Lilly's Elanco animal health, is banned in milk at Wal-Mart, Kroger, Costco, Starbucks, Ben and Jerry's and entire public school systems like Chicago which now serves 280,000 rBGH-free lunches and 120,000 rBGH-free breakfasts a day.
