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.
What happens to the milk after the cow?
The raw milk is carried through pipes to a refrigerated storage tank in another room in the barn. Every second day, the raw milk is piped from the storage tank in the barn to a big, insulated milk truck for its journey to the dairy. When the milk truck arrives at the dairy, the raw milk is piped into another cold storage tank. A sample of milk is taken and it is tested for its milk fat content, flavour, odour and bacterial count.
