Hormone-Free Food Purchases (Ongoing)


Hormone-free is a term used to describe food purchases where the meat was not treated with hormones or antibiotics. This is a requirement of the USDA organic seal. The University has taken confinement-free food purchases into consideration in purchasing chicken and pork. All local purchases of these products are confinement-free. Local purchases make up about 1 percent of the total purchases of each product.
