I don’t know why there’s such a brouhaha about people buying a lot of milk. Klara quit drinking milk this summer but before that she was guzzling it by the gallon. A three-gallon jug would last her 8-9 days. I don’t drink it at all because of the high sugar content and N is lactose intolerant. So that was just one small kid. With 10 kids, 12 gallons a week is actually quite little.
It’s really ludicrous to dump on people over milk. Milk is a basic staple. It’s not like they complained over the price of beluga caviar.
