Why Dairy?

Dairy products play a huge role in everyday life all around the world. Whether it is the butter that is spread on your toast, to the milk and cream in gelato, to the cheeses produced in America, France, Switzerland, and Italy, or the jobs created by the dairy industry, dairy products and manufacturing have been a mainstay in the lives of humans for centuries. While many people eat these products for the taste, dairy is also a good part of a balanced diet. Dairy production also helps out the animals and has an extraordinary impact on the American and global economies.

When thinking of dairy, milk or cheese may be the first products to comes to mind. However, dairy is not only a snack, meal, or flavor enhancer. There are nutritional benefits, agricultural benefits, and economical benefits.

Nutritional Benefits

The base of every dairy product, milk, is packed full of nutritional value. One 8 ounce serving of cow’s milk contains 25% of the recommended daily value of calcium, 15% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin D, 15% of the recommended daily value of Vitamin A, and 8 grams of protein. If you are not lactose intolerant, cow’s milk is great way to absorb your daily vitamins.

These nutritional benefits lead to more concrete benefits in the body as well. Studies have shown that the consumption of dairy leads to improved bone health and blood pressure reduction. There is also evidence of a reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease, and improved digestive health. All things considered, dairy tastes delicious and is a great option for those who are health-conscious!

Agricultural Benefits

Milking cows to use the milk for dairy products has benefits for the animals, not just for the humans consuming their products. Just like with humans, cows begin producing milk once they give birth to a calf. Many calves can be weaned off milk after just a few weeks. However, the cow does not stop producing milk once the calf has moved on to other food sources.

Milking a cow is an important part of keeping them healthy. Many cows produce so much milk that they still need to be milked even while the calf is still nursing. If the cow is not milked, that milk will build up in their udders, leading to the discomfort, the rupture of the skin, or even mastitis.

Economical Benefits

The dairy industry accounts for a significant portion of the United States economy and GDP. It is responsible for 2.9 million jobs and generates about $628 billion every year in the United States. The top three states that produce jobs in the dairy industry are California, Wisconsin, and Texas, in that order.

With 2.9 million jobs accounted for in the United States by the dairy industry, it is clear to see that this industry is a vital part of the American economy. In many places, the dairy industry props up entire communities. Dairy farms, dairy processing plants, food manufacturers, and more give millions of Americans jobs, helping them support their families and small businesses in the area.

Impact on World Hunger

While the economical impact is significant, the industry’s impact on hunger is impossible to overstate. The dairy industry prevents hunger both in the United States and around the world. Nearly 800 million people suffer from malnutrition due to lack of food availability. Milk and dairy products have acted as a solution to malnutrition due to their high nutritional value. However, the dairy industry’s impact on world hunger is twofold.

As previously mentioned, the dairy industry has created millions of jobs in the United States alone. Around the globe, this number is in the hundreds of millions. By providing so many jobs around the world, the dairy industry also works to solve world hunger. With so many workers with a job, they are better able to find food for themselves and their families. It is safe to say that the dairy industry will be a vital part of solving world hunger well into the future.
