Did You Know This About Milk?

About 73% of calcium available in the food supply is provided by milk and milk products.

» 12 pounds of whole milk to make 1 gallon of ice cream. » 21.2 pounds of milk to make 1 pound of butter. » 10 pounds of milk to make 1 pound of cheese. 

95% of U.S. dairy farms are family-owned and operated. Milk arrives at your local grocery store within 48 hours of leaving the farm.

The average cow produces 7 gallons of milk per day, that’s over 100 glasses of milk!

Cows eat about 100 pounds of feed a day, which is like eating 300 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! 

To get the same amount of calcium provided by one 8-ounce glass of milk, you would have to eat 4.5 servings of broccoli, 16 servings of spinach or 5.8 servings of whole wheat bread.

Did you eat something spicy? Milk is better for cooling your mouth than water because of the protein casein—it cleanses your taste buds.
