Number of cattle in the United States, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. That’s more than the human population of California and New York combined.

7 percent

American adults who believe “chocolate milk comes from brown cows,” according to the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy. Too bad center didn’t ask these people where they think hot dogs come from.
