Start Time: 12:00 PM
Twitter - use #askACES to ask your questions!

Milk has long been called “nature’s most nearly perfect food,” but in recent years there has been growing uncertainty among consumers about milk and dairy products for humans. What are the facts about milk, and what claims are based on faulty information or misunderstanding? Join us for a Twitter chat on June 22 from noon to 1 p.m. CT with ACES expert Dr. Jim Drackley of the Department of Animal Sciences at the University of Illinois to discern truth from myth.
