HAGERSTOWN, Md. - Scientists with the U.S. Agriculture Department have some tasty news for milk drinkers.
They say dairy cows that were given feed contaminated with brown marmorated stink bugs produced milk with no detectable stink bug odor.
Frederick County Dairy Science Extension Agent Stanley Fultz said Monday that the research was done at USDA labs in Beltsville, Md., and Wyndmoor, Pa.
Researchers found no detectable odor in milk from cows that either ate stink bugs or had stink bug odor compounds placed into their stomachs.
Fultz says farmers can continue harvesting stinkbug-infested crops without concern that the odor will show up in the milk supply.
The findings will be published in the proceedings of the American Dairy Science Association's annual meeting to be held in Indianapolis in July.
