cisterna-hladnjak za mlijeko
Explanation:
Lacto-freeze cannot be found in dictionaries; lacto is a prefix for forming compund word, borrowed from latin, meaning "milk".
MAybe the wider context would be instructive, but probably the author of the text just invented the word, and then added milk tank, thus getting an expression in which milk is mentioned twice, once within a familiar "milk tank" and once in clever sounding lacto-freeze...
Maybe "cisterna za cuvanje i zamrzavanje/hladjenje mlijeka" ?
