As January 11th is ‘Milk Day,’ here’s a few MI milk facts. Over 97% of all dairy farms here are family owned with an average herd has about 176 cows. The typical Michigan cow will produce over 2860 gallons a year; in fact Michigan produces enough milk for the entire state plus enough extra to export to other states!
