National Milk Day
Founded by International Association of Dairy and Milk Inspectors in October 1915
National Milk Day commemorates when milk began being delivered in glass bottles in 1878. Milkmen would go door-to-door bringing milk orders, and many people had a metal milk box where the bottles would be placed and kept cool. Today milk is largely purchased at the supermarket and other retailers. It remains an important component of a healthy diet.MetroCreative
Milk Day is held annually on January 11.

I also have heard on one of the Christian Radio stations I listen to, that milk sales are also on decline.
