Where Milk Begins

When a cow eats and drink it result in milk being produced in a cow's udder. The udder is a hemi-spherical organ that is composed of glandular tissue containing milk producing cells. As the cells do their job, the part of the udder know as the cistern fills with milk. Once the cistern is full the cow is ready to be milked.

The Cows

The cows produce about 24 liters of milk every day. They spend a lot of time eating. In fact, each day a diary cow eats a special diet of about 30kg of hay and assorted grains while drinking 80-160 liters of water.

A Healthy Start

Cows can only start to produce milk once they've had a baby cow, know as a calf. For calves, like all mammals, milk is their only food early in life. The proteins and nutrients in milk provide the energy and building materials necessary for healthy growth. Milk also contains antibodies that protect a young mammal against infection.... an important factor for starting life out right!

Milking the Cows

Milking is done in the barn and cows are milked two or three times each day. Today, dairy farms use automatic milking machines that milk a cow in just 5-8 minutes. To make sure the milk stays fresh, all milking equipment is completely washed before each milking. Milk straight from the cow is called raw milk and this raw milk is sent directly to refrigerated storage tanks in another area of the barn. These tanks quickly cool the milk to 4 degree C to keep it fresh.

Hitting the Road

Milk is stored in tanks before being piped into the special insulated milk trunks that visit the farms. These trucks collect the milk and deliver it to Kuwait Dairy Company Plant.

At the Dairy

Milk is piped directly from the milk truck into refrigerated storage tanks at the dairy. Every batch of raw milk is tested to make sure it has the proper freshness and nutrition and contains no impurities. Once the milk passes all these tests, it's ready for the separator.

One glass of fresh milk provides:

  • 13%

    Calcium for strong bones and teeth

  • 24%

    Riboflavin for healthy skin

  • 16%

    Protein to build strong muscles

  • 10%

    Vitamin A for night vision

Milk and diary foods long have been considered the best source of calcium in the diet. In fact, about 73% of the calcium available in the food supply is provided by milk and diary products. Without dairy foods, it is nearly impossible to meet calcium requirements from other non-dairy food sources. Other high-calcium foods provide less calcium, and calcium is not as well-absorbed in he body.
