It Goes Like This>kida hard to explain< Milk Is Taken From The Dairy Farm To The Milk Company. No Water Is Added. It Goes Through All The Filterlng, Pasturising, Ect. Then It Is Ran Into A Filter That Removes The Butterfat. Then If You Get 2% Milk They Add Back Into The Milk 2% Of The Butterfat It Would Have Had. In Whole Mil;k They Add All The Butterfat That Is Natural To The Milk. Skim Has No Butterfat Added. The Only Water That Is There Is What Mother Nature Added. But You Know There Is Water There. How Much, I Don`t Know. I Hope This Helped

Whole milk is generally about 87% water. The rest of it is made up of milkfat and NMS, or Non-fat Milk Solids (proteins, lactose, etc).

About 8 pounds. That's as much as a gallon of fresh water

The weight of a gallon of milk is only slightly greater than a gallon of water, about 3% more. A US gallon with 2% milkfat weighs about 8.4 pounds, compared to 8.6 pounds for "whole milk" and 8.35 pounds for a gallon of water. Milk is 87 % water, thus a gallon of milk will not differ from milk much. The 8.6 lbs/gal factor (whole milk) is correct. The weight increases as fat is removed. By weight: Milk : 8.6 lb/gallon Condensed milk : 9.4 lb/gallon Cream 8.28 lb/gallon * The British or Imperial Gallon is defined as exactly 10 pounds of water. You can convert the above figures by using 1 Imperial Gallon = 1.201 US gallons.
