The Milk Diaries - First Week

A travel blog entry by cerikang


... up as we were more used to our work station by then. We finished our daily milking routine (milking about 15 cows), then the the rest (about 50) came in to be milked before they were loaded into the trucks. It took about 5 hours altogether.
