Happy National Milk Day!!

It's National Milk Day!!

According to the National Day Calendar, National Milk Day commemorates the day that many think the first milk deliveries in glass bottles began in the United States.  

Alexander Campbell of the New York Dairy Co. professed to the New York State Senate that his company was the first to make these deliveries in 1878. 

Here is some milk trivia that you can share with your family and friends:
** Milk is a good source of calcium and many vitamins

** The first milk bottle was developed by a pharmacist from Potsdam, NY, Hervey Thatcher.

** The dairy industry is the largest part of New York's agriculture industry.

** Milk can come from other animals too, such as goats, sheep, reindeer, yaks and buffalo

**  The International Association of Milk Inspectors submitted a request to Congress in October of 1915 for a resolution naming an observance of National Milk Day.

So celebrate National Milk Day by having a big glass of milk or some other dairy product!!
