There’s a common belief that milk has antibiotics in it. With some milk labeled “antibiotic free” and others not mentioning it at all… no wonder it’s confusing! But does milk really have antibiotics in it? Let’s find out!

Sometimes it’s necessary for dairy farmers to work with veterinarians to treat their cows with antibiotics when they’re ill. However, milk from cows treated with antibiotics is discarded until the cow is off antibiotics and the milk tests clean, to be sure it’s 100% antibiotic free.
