2% or whole? I use to drink a lot, but anymore a gallon probably would last me a week. Those dairy farmers I would say are on a very tight profit margin if any. It is a 7 day a week job milking twice a day and a lot of the other time making/buying feed for the cows.


2% what do you drink ?[/quote]The same as after drinking it a while the whole milk is not as good. I guess it is what you get use to, but that whole milk will pack some weight on if used a lot.

I've been upping my consumption trying to help the dairyman via the supply and demand thing. My dog is happy and thinks I'm a god because he's now getting two bowls a day. Water is a buck a gallon. This doesn't make sense to me.

If I'm buying I buy whole but the sweet smelling one buys 2%. Same price for either.

That is a crazy price! $1.25 a gallon?! Here, on average, it is about $2.69. Depends on where one shops.

I agree but what's really crazy is when you compare this milk price t that of bottled water. Just doesn't make sense to me.
