host, Peterman informed the audi

milk during her presentation.
“Today on healthy cooking,
we’re going to leam about nature’s
most nearly perfect food, and
that’s milk,” said Peterman. “You
may be wondering why I picked
milk to be the topic of today’s
show. It’s because milk is such a

essential vitamins and minerals.”
In her presentation, Fogleman,
posing as a veterinarian, tried to
convince her Holstein, Daisy Lou,

take her to a travel agency and pick
up a lot of pamphlets. Then I’d
take her all the local places and of
course I’d show her my home sur
roundings on the farm and I could
tell her the facts about Pennsylva
nia and it’s milk production,”
answered Peterman.
Showing her the area’s dairy
farms, taking her to see the capitol
and Hershey Park, were among the
things that Fogleman would like to
show to a foreign visitor.
Swisher stated that she would
like the visitor to know that Pen
nsylvania is one of the leading
dairy producing states in America.
She also said she would show them
what a dairy farm is like and how
different each dairy farm is.
