Normal conditions allow for three deliveries per fortniqht to ensun'! milk as fresh as possible. I personally would not like to drink milk ONE MONTH OLD and as I don 1 t know in advance when the road will be out of action I don't know when to stock one month 1 s supply so that I can satisfy Mr. milk drinker, who it would seem does not mind stale milk.
