The boys and girls watched Mr. Campney throughly scrub the milking parlor floor before letting his pure-bred Holstein dairy cattle - 4 at a time- into their milking stalls, and saw the milk begin to flow through the glass pipe lines. The high light of the trip was a cup of cold milk taken from the vat. When asked by Mrs. Stenzel, if the milk was good, one little fellow piped up "Oh - it's a lot better than the milk you buy." (See photo). After getting their treat of milk, the youngster watched the milk being pumped from the stainless steel tank into a milk tank truck from the Estherville Dairy, which took the milk back to Estherville to be processed. Another big mement came when the youngsters were allowed to hold a "nursing bottle" & feel some baby claves. When the time came to return to the school it is needless to say they were reluctant to leave.
