Spanish term or phrase: Contenedores para leche recién ordeñadaS
Necesito saber cuál es el término utilizado cotidianamente en Inglés para los contenedores metálicos en los que se almacena la leche recién ordeñada para la venta a granel.

Gracias anticipadas por la ayuda!!

Milk Jug, Milk Can or Milk Pail...
Explanation:
...serían términos utilizados cotidianamente, como usted propuso.
Tengo entendido que "churn" sería más una mantequillera, si se usa como sustantivo o el proceso mismo de fabricar la mantequilla, si la palabra es usada como verbo.

containers for fresh drawn milk


Explanation:
for confirmation please see:

Dhammapada, Wisdom of the Buddha: The Fool - Canto 5
... 71. As fresh-drawn milk from the cow does not soon curdle, so an evil deed does not
produce immediate fruits. It follows the wrongdoer like a smoldering spark ...

storage tank


Explanation:
Busqué bajo 'process of milking cows' y encontre un lugar llamado 'milking' bajo esta dirección: 'king%20cows& search' y segun la información y las fotos es lo siguiente: el receptáculo en donde cae la leche al ser ordeñada la vaca se llaman 'milk tank' y los receptáculos grandísimos en donde la guardan y en donde la cargan los camiones de transporte se llaman 'storage tank'.

Haber si te sirve esta información.

Suerte!
Hasta luego
Bye

churns OR milk tanks(tankers)


Explanation:
First the milk goes into pails (traditional) Then into churns (about the size of a person, or half that), again traditional.

After automated (or manual) milking, the milk finally finally ends up in a milk tanker. The creamery sends this lorry around to collect milk, or, for really big farms, probably they have their own.

So the milk is transported in bulk in big lorries that have a stainless steel tank (like oil -transporting lorries), with a long, cylindrical shape.

I'm not sure if you refer to 'churns' or the milk tank', but maybe my explanation will help.
