If you purchased milk, yogurt, sour cream, or other milk products within the last 14 years I got some good news for you: you got some cash coming!

Residents in South Dakota, along with 14 other states (including the District of Columbia) will be awarded over $52 million as part of a recent class action lawsuit associated with the National Milk Producers Federation.

According to USA Today the dairy industries of the states listed may have slaughtered up to 500,000 cows in order to keep milk production lower and prices of milk and dairy products higher.

The states are: Arizona, California, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin, plus the District of Columbia.

To claim your refund go to Bought Milk. You have til January 31, 2017 to do so.
