Michigan Milk Means More—Whether You’re Four or One Hundred and Four
The same benefits that made milk good for you as a kid are the ones that make it good for you as an adult. Not only is it an all-natural nutrition powerhouse, it’s also a way for you to buy locally and support Michigan dairy farmers.
Hey, Mom! Hey, Dad! Where’s Your Milk?
For some reason, milk consumption tapers off as we become adults. That’s quite a surprise when you consider that milk is one of the most complete all-natural nutrition beverages on the market. With protein, B12 and 13 other essential nutrients, milk has the power to fuel your body, keeping you energized throughout the day. It’s also loaded with protein, calcium and just the right amount of carbs to improve your strength, endurance and recovery. Can’t tolerate lactose? No problem. There are plenty of lactose-free options available that deliver the same nutritional profile.
Michigan Milk is Good—For Us
Not only is milk delicious and nutritionally sound, it’s also locally produced—right here in Michigan. More than 900 dairy farms are located throughout the state, and they are committed to providing sustainable nutrition. Today, producing a gallon of milk requires 65% less water, 90% less land and 76% less manure than 70 years ago. This means the carbon footprint of milk is 63% smaller than in 1944. Our farm families are continuously seeking new ways to be responsible environmental stewards and are committed to ensuring the longevity of our land and the health of their herds. We invite you to learn more about Michigan dairy’s sustainable nutrition today.
