Our food : eggs and dairy products

Copy the text below to embed this resource

William C. “Bill” Smith of Oregon Educational Broadcasting, who hosts and narrates this group of programs, takes youngsters on a day’s jaunt to an Oregon “egg factory,” a dairy farm and a dairy manufacturing plant to show them that, though milk, butter and eggs still come from the same old reliable sources, the ways which they are processed have changed considerably.  On a farm where 100,000 laying hens produce enough eggs in one day to feed cities the size of Schenectady; New York; St. Joseph, MO; and Kalamazoo, Michigan, we see how eggs are gathered, cleaned and graded, and sent to market.  On the dairy farms we see modern milking methods and milk being transported to a manufacturing plant.  Processes involved in bottling milk and making cheese are seen, and the ice cream bar section is visited.
