Moo to You
Did you drink milk today? How did that milk get to you?
1 On the Farm
Milk cows live on dairy farms. Farmers feed and take good care of the cows. Cows give us milk. This Farmer is using a milking machine. What is she doing?
2 On the Road
Tank trucks take milk from the farm to the plant. Milk must be kept cool all the way from the farm to you. Why?
3 At the Plant
Milk is tested and heated to make sure it is healthy and clean. It is put in cartons or bottles.
4 At the Store
Trucks take milk to stores. Your family buys the milk.
