Where does milk come from?


So today in my class we were doing an experiment with turning liquids to solids. I decided to have the class make butter by taking whipping cream and shaking it until it separated into milk and butter. When discussing milk, I asked the class where it came from. One boy said 'it comes from the store.' To which I replied 'where do the stores get the milk from?' Again he calmly stated that the stores just have milk, it comes from the store. Oh my heck! I couldn't believe it! What are we teaching kids these days? Needless to say, we had a nice long discussion on how milk comes from cows and and that cows live on farms. Oy!
