Don't Cry Over Spilled Milk Day is observed on February 11, 2024. Everyone spills a little milk now and then. The day remembers that fact and is to encourage you to look beyond such annoyances. As an agricultural product, milk is extracted from mammals and used as food for humans. Worldwide, dairy farms produced about 730 million tonnes of milk in 2011.
Throughout the world, there are more than 6 billion consumers of milk and milk products. Milk is a key contributor to improving nutrition and food security particularly in developing countries. Improvements in livestock and dairy technology offer significant promise in reducing poverty and malnutrition in the world.
India is the world's largest producer and consumer of milk, yet neither exports nor imports milk. New Zealand, the European Union's 27 member states, Australia, and the United States are the world's largest exporters of milk and milk products. China and Russia are the world's largest importers of milk and milk products. (With material from: Wikipedia)
