Grass to Glass - part one

Cows eat 70 kilograms of grass a day,or during winter the farmer would make silage.The cows would need to eat this massive amount of grass to produce milk and keep healthy.70 kilograms is as twice as heavy as me.

Cows have four stomachs, to break down and digest the grass into little pieces. The half digested grass gets burped back up and the cows have to chew it again for 1 minute.Some of the grass gets made into milk and some of the grass gets pooped out.

Milking happens twice a day, early in the morning and late at night. They can never be missed out or they can have an infection.

Now days milking machines do all the hard work, so it is an easy job for the farmer. Do you know 1 cow can give 30 liters of milk. It takes 7 to 8 minutes to milk each cow.

My CV

Living on a farm

     Living on a farm

What would you like to do if you were living on a farm? If i lived on a farm i would like to milk the cows in the milking shed.

my second choice would to look after the calf’s. Getting up early to feed them would be hard. there would be so much milk to make up, then take it to the calf’s pen and lift up into the containers for the calves to drink from.


Although there would be lots of fun things to do living on a dairy farm, and I would like to visit one, I am a city boy/girl at heart. I think I’m happy just to learn about what kids do growing up on a farm.


It has been interesting to learn about what it would be like to live on a dairy farm, all the jobs you get to help with and animals you care for. But living there full time? No thank you. I think I’ll stick to the city.
