As a farmers daughter this is my account of it.

my memory of Beestons as a child was, its a very rich creamy yellowy thick substance. it was the cows first "milk" after the birth of the newborn calf. we strained it with muslin cloth and placed it in a bucket with a lid. We then places it under a runnig cold water tap outside to cool donw before finally drinking it.

Im sure there is plenty goodnes in it though its not for the "delicate digestive systems" some of the children seem to have today.

how times have changed now...
Semi skinned milk
Skimmed milk
Goats Milk
Soya Milk
and im not of a pension age either.
