When we see milk from animals in the grocery store, it’s likely from cows, who can produce around 30 quarts per day on average during the milking season. That’s about seven to eight gallons.

While most people don’t drink goat’s milk because cow’s milk is much more easily accessible, you can find it in a different aisle in the grocery store: With the soaps!
