Explanation: How cheese is made

Firstly the dairy farmer squeezes milk from the cow. Secondly they put the milk into the milk truck. Next the milk truck goes to the factory and then the milk goes through the hose into the milk tank. When it is in the milk tank they test if it is good or bad.
When it is all right it goes the starter room. Thereafter rennet is added
to curdle the milk. In the pasteurizing room the milk is heated up to get bacteria
out. The whey and curd is separated and the curd goes down the slide and the whey goes to the bakery. The curd is pressed to form cheese. After that they weigh it, then trim it and wrap it. Next it goes to the store room. Then the cheese inspectors check if it is alright before it is shipped to England.
