We are considering obtaining a jersey and I have concerns about the amount of land to needed to successfully sustain a mostly grass fed milk cow and also the quality of our grass. We have exactly 4.38 acres with about 4 acres of real pasture. This is all crossed fenced with some areas that look better than others. I also do not know what, if any, chemicals have been put on the land - although the place sat empty for about a year before we bought it in August. We've heard that the people we bought it from had beef cattle on the land so I assume nothing harmful. Can this be tested? Is it worth testing it? Thanks ! Carla Ooops! This posted twice and I don't know how to remove the other one??? Sorry.
