I’ve Got Moos For You. Vol 47.

Summary of March 2019 stories.

It was International Women’s Day this month. Watch this video and read this article that shares great social media posts from the day of celebrating!

What do you get when you mix sustainability and millennial dairy farmers? Delicious cheese and a great story. This Forbes article dives into one life that represents our US dairy industry really, really well.

There are a lot of good stats in this video. What stood out to me was that the average person uses a looooot of water each day (80-100 gallons… YA, YIKES!) while farmers are using 1 gallon of water up to 4x. After that water has been used, it’s ultimately helping to create fertilizer for the fields that are growing crops. You catch that? Check it out, pretty mind blowing when you really pay attention…

On National Oreo Day, we got meet an oreo cow… yes, a real thing.

As someone who deals with being lactose intolerant but still wanting the health benefit of dairy foods, I get excited about any type of innovative product that is lactose free. I also shop for groceries with convenience as a top priority.

THEREFORE, I’m pretty intrigued in Amazon offering Happy Belly, lactose free milk, right to my door. Has anyone tried this yet?! Or do we prefer shopping at the local grocery stores?

“The Happy Belly milk can currently be ordered through Amazon Fresh, Amazon’s grocery delivery service, with a 64-ounce bottle of lactose free whole milk going for $3.29.”

People are making milk and Coca Cola cocktails… how do we feel about this?

SnowWhite by LG is like a Keurig for ice cream. However I’ll predict the downfall to an “ice cream Keurig” is the likely “recommended” serving size… am I right?

Hey Google… where’s the closest Costco? I NEED to spend $2.35 on this new churros and frozen yogurt dessert.

The Dairy Pride Act is an effort to make food labeling less confusing for consumers. AKA if it’s not a dairy product, it shouldn’t be labeled as one. Check it out.

Here is a resource to find Berkey Creamery ice cream places other than campus. One arboretum swirl for me, please!

The dairy industry creates a lot more than delicious milk... big time things like jobs and positive influences on local and global communities. Look at these stats!

I’ve been trying to meal prep more often. I think I’ll make this for breakfast this week.. and the next week…. and the next… Nothing says “oh my gawd” like this banana cake with cream cheese frosting.

The #corntroversy continues. MillerCoors is suing Anheuser-Busch after they insinuated Miller and Coors used corn syrup in their ingredients, and Budlight did not. The real question is…. who cares?

Be thankful if you are living in a safe, dry home. Many are not. These floods are heart breaking. Companies like Culver’s are giving back, too.
