The dairy industry’s in decline, with Americans drinking less and less cow’s milk each year. What’s the biggest dairy company doing to attempt a turnaround? Investing in plant-based milk.
Why has plant-based milk done so well? Well, one factor seems to be that it’s placed right next to cow’s milk in grocery stores. The same is starting to happen with some plant-based meat, as Forbes reports this week.

Finally, speaking of nefarious behavior in Congress, if you’ve not yet urged your Rep. to oppose the single greatest threat to animals at the federal level, now’s the time.
