A victory!

Monsanto is selling off their rBGH product. This is an indication, I think, that the use of "performance enhancing drugs" is losing its grip in the dairy industry in the face of rising public resistance. (It is also, of course, a reflection of the fact that being a drug pusher to the dairy industry isn't nearly as profitable as owning the intellectual property rights on the world's seed supply.) But it's also good news because whoever buys the rights to the product (assuming such a sucker can be found) will probably not have Monsanto's resources supressing resistance to their product.
