Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Milk Day

National Milk Day falls on January 11th to observe this day in 1878 when milk was first delivered to American homes inside sterilized glass bottles.

Alexander Campbell of New York brought milk to his customers in sealed bottles. Previously, a milkman ladled milk from his container into the purchaser’s container.

The milk bottle was developed and patented in 1877 and the New York Dairy Company is said to have had the first factory producing milk bottles.

  • Did you know? Cow’s milk is more hydrating than water.

Don't confuse today with World Milk Day. That takes place on June 1st.
