Clarabelle: Making Milk and So Much More

Clarabelle by Cris PetersonClarabelle: 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.

Colorful, close-up photographs by David Lundquist capture the wonder of Clarabelle and her herdmates. This book is a tribute to the collaboration between humans and animals that is at the heart of American agriculture.
