Leon the Milkman still going?

Hi, Milk Fans

Yes, I’m still here – sorry for being so quiet – my interest in the dairy industry has for a long time shifted to hobby-status.  There is a big chance of this changing shortly – keep posted to see where I pop up next in the South African Dairy Industry!

Remember to drink your milk and to eat your cheese!

O shit – forgot to charge your cellphone?

Say hello to team BioVolt, a group of MIT students who applied the concept of biomass or using animal manure to charge mobile phones. This is ideal for rural areas with scarce electricity.

However, the system is far from perfect. It would take at least 6 months to completely charge a mobile phone battery! If there’s any consolation, you just need to shell out $2.

I guess the bigger problem is, who will be interested to collect cow dung, wait for 6 months, and put the phone on their ears if they know it’s full of sh*t?

Cheese Classification

Hi, Dairy Fans

The following factors play a role in cheese classification:

  • Consistency
  • Type of milk
  • Process of manufacture
  • Fermentation and ripening
  • Internal and external appearance
  • Moisture and fat content

Cheese, I mean cheers!
