Like Your MEXICAN Milk?
 
Can you notice a difference in the quality of the milk you drink? I don't think I can either...
But I think American Dairy Farmers should be providing the milk I buy off the local shelves!
DAIRY FRESH??? MEXICAN!!!

And with disappointing repetition... I didn't hear about this on LAME STREAM media! And Dairy Fresh is a PREMIUM price product owned or bottled under Borden's billing paperwork!

I wonder where my El' Marto del Wal milk comes from?

Do the cows moo with a spanish accent?

If so, thats pretty cool but I agree 100% on the supply should be domestic but that's free trade for ya.

First i would like to state that i am highly against outsourcing our industries.

But on a positive note:

Our milk in the USA is probably so tainted by the Fukishima radiation that i would be relieved to find out my milk was coming from a more southern source. That is, if my faimly drank cows milk. We stick to organic almond milk from central america due to the steroids and radiation up take in American cattle.

And i know this will lead to a "Oh the Fukishima melt down is not affecting us" debate. But this is my personal choice and do it only to safe gaurd my family, in case.

Buddy of mine runs a dairy in Brookhaven MS. I guess I should say ran a dairy. It finally got him last year. He told me that when NAFTA was passed it would be the end of the US dairy industry. Every year hundreds of dairies who have existed for generations have closed because they could not keep up. The price of milk at the register has changed drastically, but the price of milk at the farm has remained the same.

Man, I love me some fresh out of the cow then chilled to 35 degrees milk. WOW, that is some good stuff.

I got hooked on Italian milk in a box while living there, Parmalat. It's good on a shelf for a long time and like 6 weeks after open and tastes like Half and Half, cheaper too , now anyway.

Does Almond Milk actually taste like almonds ? Is it actually made from almonds ? I've thought about trying it.

My wife says it tastes like cow milk, just a little sweeter. I refuse to drink milk at all. Yuck.

It does not taste like almonds. I get the vanilla flavored anyway. Once I tried it I never wanted to go back. Plus almond milk has more calcium and other stuff.

I didn't read anywhere in that article where they said they were importing milk from Mexico and selling it here, maybe I missed something, I just saw it that a Mexican company was investing in America, and employing Americans to supply a product here!!

The reason I researched it is that I was told to check the label next time I see it...

I did find a few things including a report regarding nafta that ended at 2007 and a reversal of ratio where canada used to export more to us but now it is 60% from mexico.
