Video: Guernsey dairy farmers show grass to glass journey

A new video has been released to show the “grass to glass” journey of milk produced on Guernsey as part of a new campaign to promote the island’s iconic dairy industry.

The video captures the daily routine of collecting 22,500 litres of milk from the island’s 13 dairy farms to be processed by Guernsey Dairy.

The milk comes from about 1,500 Guernsey cows on the island, and the dairy says the journey from grass to glass is one of the shortest in the world.

Andrew Tabel, managing director at Guernsey Dairy, said: “We are very proud of the products we produce and the important role the dairy plays in supporting the island’s dairy industry, and the contribution it makes to the maintenance of the countryside and biodiversity of our island.”

The video highlights the nutritional benefits of milk from the renowned Guernsey cows, including high amounts of protein, calcium, and vitamins B12 and B2 which help the body make red blood cells and keep the skin, eyes and the nervous system healthy.
