Clarabelle: Making Milk and So Much More


Clarabelle is a cow and she produces milk. But she also produces electricity, fertilizer, a calf, and bedding for her stall on a modern-day Wisconsin dairy farm. Readers are introduced to all the latest technology that enables farmers to create electricity and other by-products with the help of their dairy herds. And yet, none of the latest machinery matches the miracle of production that is the cow herself—a virtual four-footed factory. This books is tribute to the collaboration between humans and animals that is at the heart of American agriculture.
