Greek Yogurt Demand Pressures Farmers for Milk
The recent craze for Greek yogurt has been having a growing effect on milk demand. Since it takes 3 gallons of milk to make every 1 gallon of yogurt, dairy farmers are feeling serious pressure to boost their production rates.
Its sweet taste and low calorie count have made Greek yogurt a product that’s increasingly filling up the shopping carts of New Yorkers.
Experts say the high demand has hiked up the number of Greek yogurt manufacturers, causing a ripple effect that has buoyed the demand for milk from dairy farmers statewide.
