Cows eat 70 kilograms of grass a day, to keep them health and produce milk for us to drink. To keep them alive they have to eat plenty of grass. In winter the farmer comes around to feed the cow with silage because the grass isn't growing.
Cows have four stomachs, compared to us who only have one stomach. These four stomach breaks down the grass into to little pieces. When the cows eat the grass they burp it back up and then chew it again for one minute, It’s disgusting.
Milking happens twice a day, and it can’t be miss out or else the cows get really sick or be in pain. It take 7-8 minutes for the cows to be milked.They get milked in the morning or in the evening.
Now days milking machines do all the hard work, but in the olden days they use to milk the cows by their bare hands, Imagine doing that. The milking shed can be called a herringbone or a rotary.Do you know one cow gives 30 litres of milk a day?
