In this episode of Blue Sky Science, Piper Hirsch asked, “How do cows make milk?” Her question was answered by assistant professor of dairy science Laura Hernandez, an expert in lactation biology.

The Blue Sky Science video series was a collaboration of the Wisconsin State Journal and the Morgridge Institute for Research. They took questions posed by visitors to the Discovery Building and then found an expert to answer the questions.
