The average cow in the U.S. produces about 21,000 lbs. of milk per year, that’s nearly 2,500 gallons a year.
On a daily basis, most cows average about 70 lbs. of milk per day, or about 8 gallons per day. 8 gallons is about 128 glasses of milk per day. Most dairy cows are milked two to three times a day.
A cow that is milking eats about 100 pounds each day of feed, which is a combination of hay, grain, silage and proteins (such as soybean meal). Sadly turned into living machines + Unsustainable amount of feed and waste.
