Today's adventure consisted of going to a dairy farm and learning the inner workings of the dairy industry in Costa Rica. Costa Rica currently produces enough dairy to sustain itself, but all of that is threatened by climate change and rising inflation of production products. At the farm, I was walked from the start of milk production to the end. As you can see, I am feeding a baby cow that will soon grow up into a dairy cow after a year and a half. The importance of dairy products is vital to some for many of the food here in Costa Rica. Afterward, I enjoyed some milk and ice cream from the farm on tour. The milk was fresh, and the ice cream was refreshing after a fantastic day at the farm. Pura Vita!
