Daviess Co. students learn how to milk dairy cows


Students at one Daviess County School are discovering how a lunchroom staple is made.

East View Elementary students learned how a dairy cow is milked from Southland Dairy farmers.

They met Daisy, a dairy cow from another Kentucky farm.

Students learned about the process, how a cow produces milk, and how much food and water a cow eats and drinks a day.

“I think it was pretty cool, and I learned a lot of new things about a cow. I learned that a cow drinks about a full bathtub of water per day.”

The kids were also taught the importance of dairy farming.
