      Fluid Milk Consumption Declines

      The Capital Press describes itself as "West
      Coast agriculture's home page for news and
      agribusiness marketplace".

      The July 12th edition led with this headline story:

      Per capita fluid milk consumption decline continues
      By CAROL RYAN DUMAS

      Highlights:

      "Per capita consumption of fluid milk fell 21.5
      percent from 1975 to 2009, according to USDA."

      "Consumption dropped about 2.5 percent in January
      2010 from the year-earlier level, more than 3 percent
      in June 2010, and about 4.5 percent in October 2010.
      April was down 2.1 percent from April 2010."

      ***Note from the Notmilkman:

      "Milk is also losing sales to bottled water."

      ***Note from the Notmilkman: The above was confirmed
      to me by a gym buddy, Michael Gottberg, owner of
      Consolidated Dairies Inc., Wallington, NJ.

      "Some schools have banned flavored milk because of the
      sugar content..."

      ***Note from the Notmilkman: In early July, 2011, the
      state of Massachusetts banned chocolate milk from
      school cafeterias.
