Where does milk come from besides "cows"? This maps shows that 50% of US milk comes from a small number of counties.
If a dairy disease outbreak occurs in relatively few regions in the country, this would have a huge impact on milk production and availability to consumers throughout the country.

Dr. Terry Etherton highlights that these concentrations are a risk from a disease outbreak point of view, and also from bioterrorism point of view.
