My understanding is that GV milk does not use the same preservatives that name brands do. Thus, it is cheaper, but doesn't store as long, and is going to taste different. I've been told by people who know far more about food regulation than I would ever care to, that GV milk is actually a healthier choice, due to this lack of preservatives.
Also, keep in mind that the dairy industry is localized. Meaning that Northwest Arkansas' milk is going to be different than Southeast Arkansas' milk is going to be different than North Carolina's milk etc. Climate, cattle feed, and quality control at each dairy can make big differences in taste.
I personally drink 2 to 3 gallons of GV milk a week and have yet to find a bad jug.
There is no preservatives in milk , it is pasteurized and that kills all the bacteria in the milk. the cartons that are not clear also can reduce sunlight and that can affect the taste of the milk.

Milk is tested for antibiotics and if any is found ,the tank is dumped and the dairy farmer fined.
When an animal is treated for an illness the milk from that animal has to be with held for the length of time needed for the drugs to clear the animals system.
Most dairy cows are not fed hormones
two reasons
1. it costs to much
2. burns the cow out and in the long run actually reduces milk production.

GV Milk is the same as Turner. Rick Cook delivers both from the same place, on the same truck. Different labels.

THAT IS AN OUT RIGHT LIE , WHY DON'T YOU CHECK AND FIND OUT THAT A HIGH WHITE CELL COUNT CAN CAUSE MILK TO BE REJECTED, there is no dye in milk .
This is just Bull shit from a Peta plant who thinks that you are stupid enough to believe anything they say.

This is very surpirising, as Great Value and WaWa milks are the only two brands I've bought that consistenly taste good. Other brands often taste sour immediately. Then again, it could be a regional thing, or due to quality control among the numerous shippers and stores.

A new thing i've been noticing in the great value milk is that its lost its quality .. like just this morning i had some 1 percent GV milk with my Oatmeal and it was a tasty meal .. but 3 to 4 hours later my stomach started hurting and it made me go to the bathroom.... not cool... i thought it was a 1 time deal so 2 days later i have some cookies and milk and n hour later i was in the bathroom again .. it was horrible .. i checked to see if i was lactos int. but i wasn't and was relieved . the week after the cookie incident i went shopping at walmart and i chose to buy the hidden brand of 1 percent milk .. had some milk and cookies with that and i had No horrible aftermaths .. please tell me its not just me that has experience this issue recently... been drinking the cobourg 1 percent brand milk for 2 weeks now. and i havn't had not a single issue .. Great Value Milk is a bad choice ... its changed

Fools your all fools!! Ibe been telling yous for years that the govment has been placing specal drugs in our milk to try and control us. it makes boys be meaner and girls be sexalized. that is why the youngins today is so fightin and havin babys all over the place. the govment nows that they can not get all of at onese so they get us a little bit at a time with by causin our kids to be actin like they aint got no get right. they have to be protected. dont let your babys drink any milk that doesnt come from the mother and then not let the mother drink any cow milk cause it will just still transfre to that baby from the mom to the baby threw the mommy milk. dont take what i say for a grain of salt because you will find out one day that i was rite and you will see then that the govment has tooked over and it will alredy be too late and you will then say i wush i had lisent to what I had said where the i is me not you but i was the one a tellin this truth to you!!

TECH IS RIGHT AND I DO AGREES WITH ALL OF EVERYTHING HE HAS STATED!!!!!!!!!!
YOU TELL MY WHY ELSE IT IS THAT SOME OF PEOPLE ARE SO DUMBER NOW THAN BACK AWAYS AGO?? can you??? NO YOU CANT BECAUSE THEY WANT US TO BE WITH ALL THE HOREMONES IN OUR BODY AND THAT MUSHES UP THE GEARS OF YOUR BRAIN AND THEN YOU DONT EVEN THINK RIGHT ENOUGH TO KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT THINKING PROPER. THEN YOU SAYS ALL ABOUT HOW THE HOREMONES EFFECT THE KIDS AND WHAT NOT. I KNOW THAT FOR MY PERSONEL EXPERIENCE THAT YOU ARE ON THE 100% MARK THERE TECH. EXPLAIN WHY ELSE MY DAUGHTER IS JUST BUT 9 YEARS OLD AND HOW HER LADY PARTS IS ALREADY FURRED UP?? THAT AINT SOPPOSED TO HAPPEN TILL A GIRL IS UP NEAR HIGH SCHOOLING AGE, BUT SHE IS DONE STARTED AND ALREDY BEEN GETTIN BOOBS FOR A WHILE NOW. THEN WHAT ABOUT MY BOYS? DO YOU THINK ITS ALL NORMAL FOR THEM TO BE SO MEAN AND CUSSIN AND FIGHTING ALL THE TIMES? I DO NOT THINK THIS IS NORMAL-LIKE AT ALL AND I KNOW THAT ITS EITHER HOREMONES OR SATAN OR BOTH (THATS WHAT THE PREACHER TELLS US TOO). I THINK IF YOU ARE CHINA AND YOU OWN EVERYTHING IN AMERICA ALREADY THEN IT IS PROLLY REALLY EASY TO PUT IN THE CHIMICALS IN THE COWS TO MAKE THE TEATS BLEED AND MAKE US CRAZY AND TO MAKE GIRLS ALL FURRED UP TOO EARLY. THINK ABOUT IT AND WAKE UP AMERICA CAUSE THE CHINA MAN AND THEM ARAB FELLERS ARE POISIONING YOU UP TO THEN COME OVER AND JUST TAKE OVER WITH NOBODY EVEN CARING BECAUSE WE ALREADY DONE FOUGHT EACH OTHER TILL WE ARE DEAD OR WERE TOO BUSY WITH SEXTING ALL THE TIME TO CARE ABOUT IT ANYHOW!!!

sugar is the poison to be concerned with. Americans each consume more than 150 pounds of sugar each year. there are 17 teaspoons of sugar in a single can of Coke.

Tech and America Man... You have no idea what you are talking about. The government doesn't even see the milk when it is made. They can't be at all of the plants to add these drugs you speak of. If they were, well.. We'd have a pretty damn big government, not to mention, they wouldn't be able to run our government because they'd be at those plants 24/7 to get all of the milk drugged.

Plus, I'm currently a high school student, and I'm no slut. None of my friends are. And If anyone were dumb, it would be you two! You can't even speak proper English.

Also, if your children are sluts and bitches (pardon my language), then you should be the one to blame because you raised them. You let them become like this without any punishment. I am proud to say that I DRINK MILK EVERY DAY, and I was raised right. My mom won't buy me anything that screams "slut". And to be honest, I don't want any clothes like that.

So next time you try to blame the way teenagers are nowadays on something stupid like milk, blame yourself or the kids parents. And sluts have been around all the time. They just progressed to this.

The last few times I have bought Great Value milk at Wal-mart it has been gross. This last time I told my husband to take it back and get another brand. While at the service desk he saw another guy bringing back his Great Value milk. What's up with this? I heard that the milk comes from old cows or something. It's been a while since I heard it and can't remember the specifics but now it's making sense. Has anyone here had the same problem?
I too have noticed that their milk tastes weird. It taste like someone already used it to dunk their donuts in. It just does not taste the same as other brands. And why it taste so different is what I want to know?

Not trying to be smart, but maybe you need to turn your refrigerator down some more. I never have a problem with it spoiling.......sometimes even after the dates. Might be worth a try. It should be set around 34 or 35 for best results.

We bought some. I usually don't drink milk... just give it to the kids. Well, tonight I went to drink a glass and it was awful! I wonder how many bad bottles of great value milk I have purchased and the kids just think that's the way it tastes. NEVER again. I don't trust walmart meat either.
