Do cows produce milk or cream ?!

Question: Do cows produce milk or cream !?
What comes out of the udders!? Cream or milk!?
I think cream, since it has a higher fat content than milk!.

10 points for the first person who settles this argument I'm having with my boyfriend!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The milk and cream are together!. If you let it sit awhile the cream comes to the top!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

All milk, even human, contains some fat!. The milk from a cow contains about 4% by volume!. If you allow fresh milk to stand undisturbed the fat containing portion will separate and float to the top!. In the modern dairy the cream is separated from the whole milk by centrifugation!. The milk you buy in the store has been mechanically treated in a process call homogenization to prevent the cream from separating from the whole milk!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Cows prodiuce what the dairy industry calls RAW MILK even though it does not resemble the lower fat product we drink!. Cows milk is allowed to separate for 12 - 24 hours before at which time the cream is skimmed from the top and sold as a separate product!. Raw milk has a fat percent of between 3!.5 and 5 percent!. Cream has a fat percent of between 10 and 50 (depending on the type of cream you are talking abou)!. There is light cream, half and half, heavy, whipping, double, clotted each with a different fat percent!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Milk comes out of the udders!. After the milk cools, the cream rises to the top and is skimmed off!. It's all the same, but the cream is taken and packaged separately!.

Oh, and no, the milk that is left after the cream is taken is NOT skimmed milk!. Skimmed milk has ALL the butterfat (or at least almost all) taken from it, but the milk that the cream is skimmed from is whole milk!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Cows produce milk that is high in fat(cream)!. The fat is processed off to make 1/2-2 percent milk!. Vitamin D or whole milk is about 3 percent fat!. Cows vary on the amount of Milk fat/butterfat they produce!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It has a higher fat content because it's whole milk!.
Processed milk (that you drink and is bottled) has had the fat taken away by various methods!.

Brown Cows produce chocolate milk!.
Pink cows produce strawberry milk!.
No cows produce cream!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Whole milk does!. This whole milk is then either pasteurized and sold as is, or separated into skim/1%/2% and the cream with the very high fat percentage!.

Give your boyfriend a punch in the head (even though he was right)! :) lolWww@FoodAQ@Com

Cows make a combination of milk and cream!. When you get milk fresh milk from a dairy, you will see that the cream has risen to the top of the bottle after it has set for awhile!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

whole milk its way creamier than the milk u buy in the grocery store but not thick enough to be clasified as cream!. cream is skimmed off the topWww@FoodAQ@Com
