Milking Cow

A cow’s milk is made in a baggy organ called an “udder,” which hangs from its stomach Part of a cow’s diet of grass and grain is used as nourishment for itself, and part of it becomes milk.  Inside the cow’s udder are special milk-making cells that take food materials from the cow’s blood and turn them into milk.

The udder has four sections that hold the milk.  When a cow is milked, the milk squirts out through large nipples called “teats.”  Dairy cows are milked at least twice a day.  Champion dairy cows give over 50 quarts of milk each day. – Dick Rogers
