The 4-year-old cow Muranda Oscar Lucinda, produced a record 67,914 pounds of milk in one year in 2010.

Weight of 1 gallon of milk= 8.7 pounds

Weight of 3 gallons of milk= 8.7*3=26.1 pounds

No. of milk buckets Muranda Oscar Lucinda's average yearly production of milk would fill=`67914/26.1=2602.069`

**Therefore, no. of milk buckets Muranda Oscar Lucinda's average yearly production of milk would fill** `=2602.069/365=7.128` `~~` **7.**
