It’s the dog days of summer, and for most of us that means a lot more time spent outside soaking up sun beams. However, there comes a time when the heat gets the best of us, and we all need to cool down and reach for a sweet, icy treat. Chances are there’s one cool, creamy dessert that you'll reach for first: Ice Cream! Its refreshing creaminess makes the mouth water and is nearly undeniable after a long day in the sun, but when was the last time you stopped to think about what it takes to deliver a cone full of milky deliciousness to your hand (and stomach)?
Well, this summer Animal Planet L!VE has the scoop with the re-introduction of Calves and Chicks Chats starting Wednesday, July 9 at 10:30AM EST!
Meet us on Calves and Chicks Cams each week to find out fascinating information on the animals that provide the basic ingredients for all of your favorite dairy and egg treats. For example, did you know that a calf weighs 90 pounds when born but will grow up to be over 1,000 when it reaches adulthood? Or that a single adult cow will produce between 5 to 12 gallons of milk per day?
Each week, you'll have the chance to learn more fun facts like these from the staff of the South Mountain Creamery. They'll be in the chat room to answer viewers’ questions about what life is like for calves and chicks growing up on the farm and to give tidbits into what it requires to produce the dairy products we consume daily. As you chat, you’ll also be entertained by the antics of our cute APL!VE Calf and Chicks cam stars. Be sure to join us!
