How do you imagine this picture? Let's say a man lives in a village and has milk intolerance. This means, most likely, that one parent (or both) is also lactose intolerant. Those. this intolerance is not unusual for this man. Then this man marries some woman. Milk is an important product in the village. This woman will most likely find out about lactose intolerance from her husband even before the wedding. Most likely in such cases they drink goat's milk. The light did not converge on only the cow's light.

So I cannot imagine a situation when the villagers (and not for some reason just the mowers) drink cow's milk and do not know about their intolerance to this drink. The villagers are usually very observant and hardly ever eat pickles and wash them down with milk, even with lactose tolerance. Let's not think of the peasants as some kind of inattentive fools.

I've been to hayfields a lot and I don't remember milk being the main drink there. But some cranberry or lingonberry drink was quite common.

Yes, they did. Among the Eastern Slavs, 16-18% of the population does not have a gene that allows them to assimilate lactose (and the more ancient time we consider, the higher this percentage was). Therefore, no matter how beautiful the picture "a wife is carrying fresh milk to her husband in the field," in reality it was not brought to everyone, because bouts of indigestion distracted from haymaking. They brought yogurt, cheese, herbal teas, fruit drinks - as now not all people without exception love milk, so in the days of our ancestors.
