The dairy industry should reflect on how alternative dairy products have reached consumers in order to respond properly, according to a Rabobank report. "While it's not essential to diversify into dairy alternatives, it would be wise for the dairy industry to at least learn one thing from the success of dairy alternatives, which may be putting the consumer first and trading in the old grass-to-glass model for glass-to-grass," said Tom Bailey, RaboResearch senior dairy analyst.

Study: Children should continue consuming milk
Obese children who consume two servings or more of cow's milk each day have a greater chance of having lower fasting insulin, according to a UTHealth study. The lesson for parents is "not to be scared of milk, or to limit its consumption, and to encourage children of all ages to keep drinking it freely," said Mona Eissa, a professor of pediatrics and adolescent medicine at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth.

Men are accused for not knowing their own weakness, yet, perhaps, as few know their own strength. It is in men as in soils, where sometimes there is a vein of gold, which the owner knows not of.
