milk processingMilk is a necessary food for everyone because it gives all nutrients. Cows, goats and buffaloes are the main milk producers now. Dairy cows need several types of grasses to produce higher quality milk. They eat, go for walks, sleep in the grassy fields and are milked there. Cows must have a calf in order to start producing milk. The milk processing period of cows is about 10 months. If the dairy farmers stop milking the cow, it will stop produce milk until it has a further calf.

Today, every cow on dairy farms is milked through milk processing equipment that not harms the cows. Dairy cows can produce approximately 25 liters of milk every day. After, it has to be saved and stored to be transported to the dairy plant. Milk processing starts in dairy farm when it is cooled in storage tanks. Refrigeration kills several spoilage causing germs in milk. It protects milk from sun rays that can remove a quantity of proteins in milk.
