Hello Angela,Thats a shame. I'm sure there's a cow that is just right for you. Hang in there. Blessings Gail
Too funny. Milk dud.
What a shame, are good ones hard to find? I know where I live they are rare unless you breed your own.
Sorry to hear Ole' Bessy the milk cow was a Dud...I would have no idea how to pick out a good milk cow. There has to be another once close by...you would think! Good Luck in finding another one...debbie
Your dud Jersey might be a blessing in disguise :-)Wouldn't 2 or 3 good dairy goats be cheaper?They'd sure be a lot safer.You'll never have to use the come along to deliver a malpresentation on a nanny goat.Not to mention be up all night with a twisted stomach or fiddle with AI. Cows do have to be bred every year and breeding 1 cow can be some trouble.Cows are great.But they eat a lot, can really kick and the vet bill is wicked.
So what exactly happened with the cow? How was she a dud? We've got 2 Jerseys and have had no problems for 3 years (Thank the LORD!!). With so many children, having a cow makes sense. We've got just 4 (soon to be 5) and easily use all the milk from one Jersey. While I cannot disagree with Granny Miller, goats are great, it's just not that easy to get cream for butter from goat milk without expensive equipment.
