The Dairy Farm

If you never step into dairy farm before, you are not consider step in New Zealand. That's what I think. When we traveled around New Zealand, the things that we saw most frequent were grass, sheep, cow. In another word -  farm.
Yeah, farm. Today let me zoom in and show you the actual face of the dairy farm. After the visit, I found that I was being cheat for a long time.

Here are the milking machine. Yes, now we are staying in era of technology, no more milking manually. NO manual. I was being cheated before I came to New Zealand. Now I know. I won't be cheated anymore!!

The cow queued up for the milking process. 
The milking machine, it vacuumed the milk out. According to the owner, they can obtained 20liter of milk from a cow per day. Amazing! How the cow stores such a big amount of milk in their stomach???

I had to squeeze myself in the photo to proof that I had been here.

You see, I helped the owner to milk the cow. But, only one. Haha~Why? There was a walkway in between for us to milk the cow. If you are observant enough, you will notice all the cows queued up left and right and we were standing in the middle. Now, the biggest problem occurred, all the cows faced us with their butts!!! Those cows poo non stop and you will never know which cow is going to poo at that time. If you were lucky enough, you will get a free warm and fresh face mask with a special aroma.To avoid such unique experience, I did a quick milking and escaped ourselves from the trap!

The second discovery. Can you spot the difference of this cow???? Cannot?? See carefully... Yes, this cow has horn on it. HORN? Why there is horn on milk cow???? Since I were small, all the picture in story book showed milk cow has no horn! Now I know, they actually have horn but just cut by human.Yes, they cut it to prevent the cow hurt by others.

This pity cow get sick. That's why he can wear a clothes.

Since we were here, we must try the fresh milk. Yes, fresh milk from their stomach without process! Sound disgusting because lots of people said that fresh milk doesn't taste good. Anyhow, I should try it so when I back to Malaysia, I can tell everyone what was the taste of fresh milk. Wao, such a big job.

Out of my surprise, fresh milk tastes good!! The taste was just like the milk that we bought from supermarket but the fresh one taste much delicious! Yes, yummy and delight. You see, I was being cheated again!

After the milk tasting, we saw the way they milk the cattle.

This was the cattle's lunch box.

Zoom in.

They pour the milk in and let the cattle drink. Some cattles were too young and they don't even know how to feed themselves. The farmer had to teach them.

Working in farm is really hard. Now, I know how the milk I drink everyday comes from. It's not an easy job to get the milk. I'll appreciate every single drop of the milk from today onwards. Yes, I try. :P
