Well after veiwing the answers to my jersey for meat question, I've been thinking maybe if they run another jersey heifer through the auction then maybe I'll buy her for a future family milk cow. When I was growing up we had a Angus milk cow and she was very gentile, so I'm wondering if a Jersey can be very gentile also? I hadn't been wanting to tie myself down with a everyday chore such as this cause I like to do a lot of camping. But no more than I have been camping in the last few years maybe I should go ahead and tie myself down with such chores. Plus I would like for my kids to experience some of the stuff I did when growing up. Milking at 6:00 in the morning and evening too! Making homemade butter and cheese. Bottle feeding piglets with the extra milk! They especially need activities such as these during the summer months when there out of school.
