Regulation of the Dairy Industry: Looking at the Science

In this activity students will learn about the use and regulation of hormones to increase agricultural production in Canada. Specifically students will examine how recombinant bovine somatropin (rBST)is produced and how it increases milk production. Students will learn how science has shaped legislation regulating the use of rBST.

This activity is designed for the Biology 30 curriculum but also has connections to Social Studies. It has the following learning outcomes:
• To evaluate the use of biotechnology to increase milk yields using synthetic hormones.
• To reflect on the role of science and technology in society
