      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


      "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.

      The entire article:
