The president of the newly formed Dairy Research Institute explains how the US organisation plans to drive forward R&D in the dairy sector by bringing together interested parties from industry, government and academia.

Greg Miller, who is also the executive VP of Dairy Management Inc, said it is critical to the success of the whole dairy sector that research is conducted in a collaborative fashion.

The dairy industry will do anything it takes to convince people that cow's milk is something we should be consuming. Cow's milk is linked to several cancers, allergies and other health related issues. It is unnatural to drink the milk from another species - Especially long after we as adults are supposed to be weaned from human breast milk. There's absolutely nothing in cow's milk that isn't found in healthier plant based foods.
