In this special video, Mic the Vegan looks at the use of dairy in schools – as well as how the marriage between big dairy and the government works, some newer dairy industry legislation, and a recent campaign against it all.

Did you know that schools account for between seven and eight percent of all milk consumption, in and around $1 billion dollars in milk sales?

‘Business’

Barbara O’Brien, senior executive vice president of Dairy Management said: “That’s a sizable and important piece of business. 

“Those sales are crucial to lifelong dairy consumption and keeping people positively inclined to our products and our industry.”

Mic says: “AKA start-em young when they are a CAPTIVE audience. They are legally obligated to go to school after all.

“For the dairy industry, they are trying to milk that udder hard.”
