Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
late 13c., "building for making butter and cheese; dairy farm," formed with Anglo-French -erie affixed to Middle English daie (in daie maid "dairymaid"), from Old English dæge "kneader of bread, housekeeper, female servant" (see dey (n.1)). The purely native word was dey-house.
a. 1 Referring to products produced from milk. 2 Referring to the milk production and processing industries 3 (context British English) On food labelling, containing fats only from dairy sources (e.g. dairy ice cream). n. 1 A place, often on a farm, where milk is processed and turned into products such as butter and cheese. 2 A dairy farm. 3 A shop selling dairy products. 4 (also ''dairy products'' or ''dairy produce'') Products produced from milk. 5 (context New Zealand English) A corner-store, superette or 'mini-mart' of some description.
n. a farm where dairy products are produced [syn: dairy farm]
Terminology differs between countries. For example, in the United States, the entire dairy farm is commonly called a "dairy." The building or farm area where milk is harvested from the cow is often called a "milking parlor" or "parlor." The farm area where milk is stored in bulk tanks is known as the farm's "milk house." Milk is then hauled (usually by truck) to a "dairy plant," also referred to as a "dairy", where raw milk is further processed and prepared for commercial sale of dairy products. In New Zealand, farm areas for milk harvesting are also called "milking parlours", and are historically known as "milking sheds." As in the United States, sometimes milking sheds are referred to by their type, such as "herring bone shed" or "pit parlour". Parlour design has evolved from simple barns or sheds to large rotary structures in which the workflow (throughput of cows) is very efficiently handled. In some countries, especially those with small numbers of animals being milked, the farm may perform the functions of a dairy plant, processing their own milk into salable dairy products, such as butter, cheese, or yogurt. This on-site processing is a traditional method of producing specialist milk products, common in Europe.
In the United States a dairy can also be a place that processes, distributes and sells dairy products, or a room, building or establishment where milk is stored and processed into milk products, such as butter or cheese. In New Zealand English the singular use of the word dairy almost exclusively refers to a corner shop, or superette. This usage is historical as such shops were a common place for the public to buy milk products.
As an attributive, the word dairy refers to milk-based products, derivatives and processes, and the animals and workers involved in their production: for example dairy cattle, dairy goat. A dairy farm produces milk and a dairy factory processes it into a variety of dairy products. These establishments constitute the global dairy industry, a component of the food industry.
A dairy is a facility for the extraction and processing of animal milk.
Dairy may also refer to:
- Dairy farming, a class of agricultural enterprise for production of milk
- Dairy product, foodstuff produced from milk
- Dairy cattle, cattle cows bred for the ability to produce large quantities of milk
- Dairy, Oregon, an unincorporated community in the United States
- Dairy (store), a type of convenience store in New Zealand
- Dairy Milk, a chocolate product of Cadbury brand
