OK, i'm not wanting gallons of milk everyday. So please understand that, the milk is only for me and my family. But what i don't get is people keep claiming there is no "Dual purpose" cow. Either you pick one or the other (meat or milk production). But i really don't either, A) Want another cow just for milk or B) Want to have to buy a milking goat or some other animal to supply milk.. When i first found the cow i was happy to read: "The breed was originally a dual-purpose breed supplying both meat and milk to the farmers on the cold and windy coast of Scotland." So why do people keep telling me the cow isn't dual purpose...? So... please, does anyone milk their Highland cows that can give me some insight?
