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. The farmer in this photo 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.
