Have People Stopped Drinking Milk?
According to new reports, dairy farmers, milk processors and grocery chains are starting to worry.

The industry “is coming to recognize this as a crisis,” says Tom Gallagher, CEO of Dairy Management Inc., a farmer-funded trade group that promotes milk products. “We cannot simply assume that we will always have a market.”
