Conditions of Use
Dairy products are made of milk and milk comes from cows. Milk is produced in cow’s stomachs. Cows have four stomachs. The grass has to go through all four parts of the cow’s stomachs before it is fully digested. Some of the milk travels through the bloodstream then goes to the udder.
In some countries they still use hand milking but machine milking is much faster than hand milking. It takes about five minutes until all the milk is removed out of the udder. Some suction cups connect to the udder and it sucks all of the milk out of the udder.
Big tanker trucks come daily to collect the milk. In the dairy factory it cools the milk then makes it hot quick. That kills the germs. Then the milk and cream goes into bottles and the rest is processed to make cheese, butter, yoghurt and ice-cream.
Dairy products are important to New Zealand and we send a lot overseas.
