Cow Juice

Modern Marvels: Milk

Got milk? Not until you’ve had a taste of Modern Marvels’ Milk. Billions of pounds of milk are consumed throughout the world everyday. Milk is the basis for its own food group, and has been around since the dawn of mammals. In this episode of Modern Marvels, visit a farm with a milking parlor that looks more like a cow merry-go-round, learn what pasteurization is really all about, go inside to a three-story milk evaporator, and even milk a yak. Then, slide into one of the world's largest butter churns, find out what exactly are those active cultures in yogurt and discover if milk truly makes the body good. Think you know cows? Just wait until you discover just how many types there truly are. Monday, January 7 at 8pm/12am ET/PT, History Channel
