Milk Collection Center in Nicaragua
Growing up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin I developed a mental model of what it took to get milk from the cow to the processing plant. My volunteer assignment in Nicaragua certainly has had an impact on how I now view the dairy industry and the challenges farmers face getting their product to market. The video below shows milk being received at a milk collection center near the city of Boaco Nicaragua. I was impressed about the level of effort being put forth to maintain product quality.
