The costs of using the products are significant, starting with the costs of the drug itself, then adding to that the costs of the labour involved in injecting it and the extra feed needed to help the cows sustain the unnatural burden to their systems, and the veterinary costs that are so inevitably linked to the product's use that the manufacturer included vet vouchers as a sales tool to help offset that expense. the recommended feed to help cows survive the demands of the product is animal protein, which raises the specter that the product's use could advance the spread of Mad Cow disease.

To the extent that it works as advertised and helps farmers produce more milk, it will only add to the chronic oversupply and help depress milk prices further, thereby throwing more family dairy farmers out of business. And by reducing consumer confidence in the safety of milk, it limits demand for milk as well as other dairy products, again depressing prices and threatening the livelihood of the small farmer.
