The diagram illustrates the way by which milk, cheese, cream and butter are produced, processed and packaged to be sold.  Overall, there are eight stages shown from grazing cows to the sale of milk to supermarkets and shops.

Initially, cows are grazed in the field then brought to a milking machine where they are milked twice a day.  Following this, the milk is moved into large refrigeration tanks for storage, before being transferred to a milk tanker for transport to the Dairy where it will be processed further.  This process occurs on a daily basis.

Once at the factory, the milk is subsequently processed into its various derivative products: milk, cheese, cream and butter.  To make it safe to drink, the milk undergoes pasteurization to remove any bacteria and pathogens.  When the latter process is complete, it is ready to be packaged.  As soon as packaging is complete, the final product is shipped off to supermarkets and shops for customers to purchase.
