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 do cows eat?
On an average day, a cow eats 4 kg of hay (about the size of a small microwave), 16 kg of silage (about half of a child’s backyard swimming pool), 10 kg of mixed grains, salt, vitamins and minerals (2½ ice cream pails full) and 60 litres of water (2/3 of a standard bathtub).
