Per capita milk consumption in 2001 was on the decline at about 23 gallons. The current U.S. population is about 311,000,000.
So, (23 gallons x 311,000,000 people) / 365 days = about 19,597,260 gallons per day.
In 2005, Americans consumed 56,205,000,000lbs of fluid milk, which broken down per day gives 153,986,301.37lbs of milk consumed. I couldn’t find the average weight of a gallon of milk though, but if you have one, dividing the previous number by the gallon’s weight in lbs will give you an approximate consumption rate in gallons.
