    Can anyone tell me approx. how much butter would come from a quart/gallon of cream? (cow's cream) I know that the amount of fat in the cream would factor in , but just a ballpark figure would do. Thanks

    It all depends on yer breed of cream producin' animal and what you feed it. We're no experts, but we have jerseys, feed them good hay and some grain often supplemented with vinegar or apple pomace. We often shake a quart of cream and get a quart of butter. Now that's some hard shakin'...not to mention high butterfat content.
