A little building that looked clean all over and that looked like there was some activity. So I strolled in that direction. As I approached, I could see BDFA – Baybay Dairy Farmers Association posted on the wall complete with their mission, vision, mandate and quality policy. Oh ok I said, but still went nearer. I was particularly intrigued by the labels on the two doors that faced me. Look in this picture! Why is it so? THAT made me more interested. Hello, is this a comfort room? Am I in Saudi?
Double bad news! I was overwhelmed at the next scene I saw and forgot to take pictures hehe. Anyway, to the left corner of this building, that window beside the female entrance is a delivery area where farmers bring their freshly collected carabao milk in exchange for cash. Not just any farmer can deliver here. They have to be members of the association that are all supposedly trained on the proper way of collecting and transporting milk to this center. Even the containers they use are unique – stainless aluminum containers. And the crews that receive them are all properly uniformed with rubber gloves, lab masks, hair nets and lab gowns. I talked to one manong and he said this was an augment enough to his income since he has carabaos used in his farm.
Interesting! But this was just the “back” of the building. What goes front? Let’s do that next. It’s delicious!
