Drink Up! It’s National Milk Day! – Hiland Dairy

Drink Up! It’s National Milk Day!

What does a glass bottle have to do with National Milk Day? National Milk Day was created to celebrate the first time milk was delivered in glass bottles on January 11, 1878. So, in honor of this great day, I dug up a few fun facts about milk.

Pound it out.

A gallon of milk weighs 8.59 pounds.

Say cheese.

More than a third of the milk produced in the U.S. each year goes into manufacturing cheese.

Flavor Favorites.

Vanilla is America’s favorite ice cream flavor, and cheddar cheese is the most popular natural cheese.

It’s like bread and butter.

It takes more than 21 pounds of whole milk to make one pound of butter.

Diva’s Tips

One serving of milk contains eight grams of protein and nine essential nutrients. Don’t forget to drink your milk and boost your protein intake. It’s good for you!
