350 - 53.6% correct




To fill a gallon pail with milk, the milker (or automatic milking machine) must collect approximately 350 squirts of milk from a cow's udders. Most dairy cows can produce up to 6.5 gallons of milk per day. This averages to about 350,000 standard eight-ounce glasses of milk produced by a typical dairy cow in a year's time. America's dairy industry produces an average of 21 billion gallons of milk each year. Source: Ansc.Purdue.edu


The gallon is a unit of measurement for liquid capacity in both the US customary units and the British imperial systems of measurement. Three significantly different sizes are in current use: the imperial gallon defined as 4.54609 litres, which is used in the United Kingdom, Canada, and some Caribbean nations; the US gallon defined as 231 cubic inches (3.785 L), which is used in the US and some Latin American and Caribbean countries; and the least-used US dry gallon defined as 1⁄8 US bushel (4.405 L). The IEEE standard symbol for the gallon is gal.
