Celebrate Milk!

Hooray for milk...from the cow! All "milks" are not the same.
"Milks" like soy, rice and almond beverages are really juices extracted from plants. They are fortified with some nutrients like calcium, but they don't compare to the complete nutrient package of cow's milk. Vitamin D, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium are all at much lower levels in these processed beverages, and even though these drinks are fortified with extra calcium, our bodies absorb 25% less of it from them than from natural cow's milk, according to a Creighton University study. 

As Dairy Farmers we are committed to providing a safe and healthy MILK for you. So raise a glass and celebrate!
