Just got home this evening with our jersey and a calf.... On the Jersey cow, she is low anyway on production, since she is due to calf in July (maybe giving a gallon of milk is what the guy thought she might be giving)...I went to milk her tonight, and boy-it isnt like milking goats-ack!! Any tips please send my way..I didnt seem to be getting a let down. I used some utter butter, but dont know what else to do. I got maybe a quart from her..but am figuring the trip would lower her milk yeild? On the calf....she is a month old. I gave her a bottle of the milk I milked from the cow, but she only drank about 1 1/2 cups tonight. I dont know if that is ok or not (we werent planning on a calf, so I didnt get to research what to do). Im worried the trip was too much for her (7hrs), and I dont know if I am doing this right. Please help, how much should she be drinking? Also, it is reallllyyy windy here tonight, so I went out and put her in with my 2 goats, to keep her out of the bitter wind. Was that the right thing to do? I hope goats and calves get along. This really stinks, cause without you guys, Im outta luck. Nowon here that I know of does dairy cows, and Im not finding the aswers to my ?'s in the book Keeping a Family Cow. Please help me if you can! Mary F.
