Celebrating National Milk Day – Jan. 11, 2017

By Ann Thelen

Happy National Milk Day! Nearly 140 years ago – on Jan. 11, 1878, to be exact – milk first started being delivered in sterilized glass bottles. Today, milk remains one of the freshest items in grocery stores as milk comes from the dairy barn to store shelves in less than 48 hours. Milk is about as fresh and local as it gets, so let’s raise a glass to this delicious product and thank the Iowa dairy farmers who produce it!
