Clarabelle: Making Milk and So Much More
Everyone knows that cows produce milk but also electricity, fertilizer, and compost for animal stalls? Yes, cows produce these, too! A cow is an amazing organism that transforms foods such soybean meal into and corn into all sorts of other useful products. By featuring a single cow and her calf on a large Wisconsin dairy farm, Cris Peterson describes all the latest technology that enables farmers to create by-products from their herds. And yet none of the modern-day machinery matches the miracle of production that is the cow herself. Vibrant photographs by David Lundquist capture Clarabelle with her herdmates and her newborn calf as well as the family members of Norswiss Farm in this Ohio Farm Bureau Children's Literature Award winner."
