Friday Fun Farm Facts

The average U.S. dairy cow produces 22.5 quarts of milk each day. That’s about 16,000 glasses of milk per year – enough for about 40 people. One cow can give 200,000 glasses of milk in a lifetime.

It takes approximately 1.4 gallons of milk to make 1 gallon of ice cream.

Cheese was first made over 4,000 years ago in Asia.

  5. Wow! That is a lot of milk! Both for the cow to produce and the amount we consume!

    I know nothing about dairy cows (we raise beef) so it's nice to learn these things.
