WHY: World Milk Day began in 2001 as a way to celebrate the dairy industry’s contributions to communities across the United States. In the 2012 agricultural census, cows’ milk was valued at more than $125 million, and in 2018, Nevada’s dairy cows produced 734 million pounds of milk. Dairy farmers have been a longstanding part of many Nevada communities, with some dairy farms dating back more than 50 years. Dairy is local, impactful to our economy, delicious and nutritious!
