The case on cow doping in Lugo continues


District Court no. 2 of Lugo is continuing its investigation which started in April 2013 into the presumed use of bovine somatotropin hormone, a substance prohibited in the European Union, by various livestock producers with the goal of making their cows to produce more milk (previous new).

The magistrate presiding over the case has dictated a decree which demands that the Fondo Español de Garantía Agraria [Spanish Fund for Agrarian Guarantees] present the milk production information in recent years by the livestock producers under investigation, located in different provinces across the national territory, in order to prove if there has been any variation in milk production.

The magistrate affirms that the administration of these substances causes suffering in animals.
