Body By Milk is part of the National Milk Mustache "got milk?"
Campaign, a multi-faceted education program focused on the health benefits
of milk. The campaign is managed by the Milk Processor Education Program
(MilkPEP) in Washington, D.C., which is funded by the nation's milk
processors, who are committed to increasing fluid milk consumption. The
tagline "got milk?"(R) was created for the California Milk Processor Board
by Goodby Silverstein & Partners and is licensed by the national milk
processor and dairy producer groups.
