The kids have all of the milk they can use, the two calves only use 1 1/2 gallons a day, we let the little Milking Devon heifer dry off, and still we are pouring out milk. Our 2 Jerseys being milked are giving us around 11 gallons a day and Dorsey hasn't yet maxed out on her production. The Jersey/Milking Devon bull calf is taking a gallon a day, and the premature pure blood Milking Devon bull calf is only taking 1/2 gallon a day. I can't believe the little guy is still kicking. Daughter had been feeding him 6 times a day, then down to 4 times a day, and now 3 times a day. Day before yesterday she had mild stroke; or so her doctor said. She is speaking with a slur and one side of her face is all wierd; it seems the calf may be coming home. I had hoped that she would get him down to being feed twice a day before he came home, but if she's going to have a heart attack on me, I suppose he could come home sooner. Yesterday morning we poured off the morning feeding for the calf at home and then poured the rest out to the chickens. Today we did the same thing, and most likely will again tomorrow. It doesn't really bother me to give milk to the chickens, but when I think of how many gentlefolk out there could really use some milk for their kids; then it kills me.
