What is your milk cows name?

I just bought a little jersey heifer calf to raise up for our milk cow. I would like to get some ideas on some names. I have a jersey that just turned a year old and I named her Willow. I like cute/unique names but have not thought of 1 yet that would fit her. Thinking 'maybe' Gracie or Button. Let me know what your cows name is...Thanks

Since we got her just before Christmas, and she was a very pretty little tan Jersey gal, I named her Holly Berry. Just a little play on words there.

Just sold my first jersey and her name was Tinkerbell. We named her daughter Irradessa (fairies off Tinkerbell movie). Then there is Bonnie, Bluebell and Callie (short for California because she is Holstein and looks like the cows of the happy cows commercials!) lol

Good luck!

I love ALL of your replies. Such cute names. Willow,my year old jersey was quiet and easy going and this little one is pretty spunky. She is SO cute.....I have a friend who absolutely LOVES her milk cows and now I know why. We have had beef cows for years but there is just something different about a dairy cow.

"Missy" is my belmont dexter. Her name was Maggie Moo when she came to us, but I was saying things like "Look here, Missy" and it became an endearment that stuck.

Here she is on my blog header:

I need to get out there and take some new ones when she's all mature looking.

"Molly Moo Cow" is actually my pyr/aussie shep dog's nickname--- Molly was always underfoot so I started calling her a big, fat cow!

I love all the names, and the thought that went into them.

My grandmother always had a milk cow and it was always given the same name, "Bossie".

My half Jersey half Holstein is named Espresso Bean. A young boy named her. The Jersey I had before her was Sabrina.

Right now I have a milk cow named Evie Lee and a jersey/holstein cross named Bonnie. Then a beef cow named Smudge and her daughter Charmin. I've had an Annie, Glory, Sarah and Elenore.

Actually she was named for the white markings on her face, which look like bite marks!

I named her when she was one of 125 cows I milked on the dairy farm where I worked ... if I'd known she was going to be mine someday, I might have put more thought into her name.

The funny thing is, she's always nomming on me ... I think she feels she has to live up to her name!

Twister came from the same farm, and also was named for her facial markings, which I thought resembled a tornado.
