Due to plummeting demand for dairy milk, 52 New York dairy farms have lost their wholesale contracts and have no one lined up to buy their milk beginning this July.
As CBS New York notes, the average American drinks 37 percent less milk now than they did in 1970. This can be credited to a few things. Of course, many opt for milk alternatives for environmental or health reasons, but since humans do not naturally consume milk after childhood, let alone another animal’s milk, lactose intolerance has also caused countless consumers to ditch dairy.
