Does cow's milk have pus in it?

Not normally - cow milk is sterile until it is released from the milk glands into the teat canal. However, a cow with mastitis may have some purulent material in the milk, which generally results in the milk being a foul color, nasty smelly and possibly chunky as well. This is not milk that would be collected for human consumption - it is poured into the sewage system as waste milk.
yes. It's yellow.
No.

What is the average life span of a betta fish?

== == Most of these fish can live for 2-3 years in fish bowl. Normally, bettas live two to five years depending on how they are cared for. Male bettas that live alone in large individual tanks and get daily exercise have lived six years or longer in laboratories. Typically, males purchased from a pet store are over four months old, at a point when their finnage becomes fullest and most attractive. Due to their shorter finnage, females available in pet stores are often only three to six months old. Betta fish actually live for 4+ years, eight years is not uncommon, in a 2+ gallon tank. In petstores males and females are actually an average of two years old; a female's finnage is alway short. 2-3 years in a bowl but 6-7 in a tank. 8 years is not uncommon, though. You may find it that your beta lives longer with different plants, and tanks.
the original lifespan of a betta is 1-2 years. But with exellent care it may live up to 5 years.

What kind of milk do brown cows give?

A brown cow gives white milk. All cows give white-colored milk, no matter what their breed or coat color. However, brown-colored breeds such as Jersey, Guernsey, and Brown Swiss, generally give creamier milk with a higher milk-fat content than black-and-white Holsteins, but usually smaller quantities.

Torture

Does the brand farmhouse milk torture their cows?

NO. If they would torture their cows, they wouldn't get any milk from their cows. This is because cows that are under ANY kind of stress, pain or illness either give very little milk or DO NOT give milk at all. In order to have cows that will give milk, they have to be comfortable, relaxed and well-fed.

How can selective breeding can be used to increase amount of milk a cow produces?

As the related question below explains, selective breeding is a tool that is used to improve one or more particular characteristics that is lacking or is inferior in a dam or sire to obtain offspring with that/those improved characteristic[s].

To improve milking ability in a dairy herd, cows are bred to a bull with a dam that has higher milking ability EPDs (Expected Progeny Differences: another word for genetic trait selection) than the cows do. The daughters that come from these cows with higher milking ability than the milking ability average of the herd are selected to be replacements in the dairy herd; the cows that have decreased in production or are low producers are culled. These daughters are further mated to other bulls that have improved milking ability characteristics to produce more daughters that have superior milking ability to them. And on it goes. Eventually the dairy farmer has a herd that is producing a lot of milk, thanks to genetic selection and selective breeding practices.

What kind of animal has the best milk?

What do you mean by "animal"? Each species of mammal have their own milk qualities specially made for the young of their kind. There really is no "best milk" when comparing species to species.

However, if you are referring to "animal" to cattle specifically, it depends on the breed. Holsteins are those that are capable of producing vast quantities of milk, much more than any breed of bovine in this world. Jerseys, however, produce the creamiest milk of all bovine breeds. so it all depends on personal opinion.

Are cows artificially inseminated to produce milk?

Yes, a cow needs to calve before she can produce milk just as with humans and other animals. The method for breeding the cow can be via live cover where she is in with a bull or A.I. (artificial insemination) where the semen is collected from a bull at another location and the vet A.I. the cow in correlation with her ovulation cycle.

How much milk does a Holstein calf drink a day?

A Holstein calf can be given four to five quarts or milk per day, or 2 to 2.5 quarts per twice-daily feeding, especially in the first week of its life--this equates to 10% of the calf's body weight. However, in mimicing nature and opting for a more intensive feeding strategy, you can choose to boost up the amount of milk fed per day so that the calf is getting around 20% of its body weight per day with more frequent feedings with more milk after the second week of its life. Naturally, a calf on a cow will drink that amount of milk many times more than just two or three times a day. Most feel more safer opting to feed a calf 10% of its body weight per day since many feel that the incidence of scouring and digestive upset is greater when more milk is being fed.

How does the homogenization process work?

Homogenization is the process of breaking cells apart. The molecular structure of the fat (in milk for example) is altered by spinning the liquid at a high velocity causing the fat cells to break down into smaller forms.

When does a cow grow teats?

Heifers grow teats when they start producing milk, which is either right before they calve, right after, or during pregnancy. The teat canals make the teat grow bigger because of the milk filling up in the cavity, which is released when the new calf begins to suckle.
