Dairy products have been a staple in the American diet and culture since the 1930s. To a great extent this is because the government has told us that humans of all ages, shapes, and sizes ought to consume gallons of milk and pounds of dairy products for our health and weight management. People want to buy dairy and producers want to sell it, but it is not that simple.The cow’s milk industry in the United States is highly regulated and strictly subsidized, yet the neither the fluid drink nor its products are in any way essential to human existence. The plummeting numbers of dairy farms may suggest it is no longer a viable good to produce.
