Cows eat grass, which helps them live, grow, and make milk. Milk is made in the cow’s udder. Farmers use milking machines to milk cows. Then the milk is cooled in a tank, and a truck carries the milk to a factory where it is cleaned and heated. Once the milk is cooled again, workers test it to make sure it is safe to drink. Finally, the milk is placed in jugs, sealed, and transported to where consumers find it on refrigerated shelves.
