Our partners promote healthy lifestyles.
We want kids to be healthy until the cows come home.
Hello and welcome. We are the School Milk Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador. We’re an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to helping school children develop healthy lifestyles and proper eating habits.
We make sure milk stays available – and affordable – to the children in Newfoundland and Labrador.
How do you get the milk out of the cow?
Farmers used to milk their cows by hand, but now a machine milks cows. The milking machine has four cups (called a cluster)—one cup for each teat. Before the cups are fitted on, the farmer washes the cow’s udder and teats with a disinfectant solution, then rinses and dries each teat.
