Milk Factoids

  • In 1919, milk was 15 cents a quart. In 1933, milk was 10 cents a quart.
  • 1939 - Milk containers are now made out of two types: Glass and Paperboard.
  • In 1949, 70 percent of milk sold in the United States was homogenized.

  • Buttermilk is liquid remaining after butter “has come.” When taken fresh, it makes a wholesome beverage.
