GOT milk? The students at Nambour State High School sure do.

Twenty agricultural studies students are udderly delighted to give Brisbane Ekka patrons a real-life look at where the morning milk on their cereal comes from.

The students, who often perform demonstrations at local agricultural shows, will head to Brisbane tomorrow as part of the annual show that attracts half a million people over 10 days.

The Nambour group will perform demonstrations and answer questions from the public on milking cows, how milk is separated into cream and skim, and how milk is churned into butter and buttermilk.

The school's eight cows and seven calves will be transported to the Brisbane showgrounds ready for the big day.

Head of agricultural department Sheldon Free said the demonstration would provide a chance for students to share their knowledge with the public.

Two exchange students from an agricultural college in New Zealand will be part of the Nambour group.

"The kids love showing off what they have learnt and it's all interactive" Mr Free said.

"Not everyone gets to see cows and calves up close like this."

The Ekka starts tomorrow and runs until Sunday August 17.
