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.
