Dairy farmers are active members of their local community and create an estimated 900,000 jobs in the US.  The invention of pasteurization in the early 1900’s allowed for a safer product and extended milk’s shelf life by eradicating bacteria. Did you know there are roughly 340 “squirts” in a gallon milk?  Before milking machines were invented in 1984, farmers could only milk about 6 cows per hour but with new technology and researching what makes the animals most comfortable, it takes less than 5 minutes to milk a cow with a milking machine.  The average dairy cow gives more than 7 gallons of milk each day, that’s 400 glasses of milk!  Dairy products like milk, cheese & yogurt provide 9 essential nutrients along with calcium, a major nutrient that helps build strong bones!

According to the USDA, 98% of US dairy farms are still family owned and operated. Visit www.americandairy.com for more information.
