According to the
website National Day Calendar, National Milk Day was proposed by the International Association of Milk Inspectors who requested a resolution by Congress in 1915 to observe the day. However, no date was suggested in the request and it was never formally recognized.
The date of January 11 is believed to be when deliveries of milk in sterilized glass bottles began back in 1978, says the National Milk Producers Federation.
