When is a cow "old"

3073 Views 23 Replies 15 Participants Last post by  Madsaw
I know this is a stupid question . When is a cow too old, we have had a couple of people with milk cows for sale , but they are like 12 years old. That seems old to me. I am not in the position really to buy one yet, but I would like to be prepared when I am. Thanks so much for any help anyone can give :):cow:

Here in NE Okla, I would suspect, if one found a milker that old, she would be around 1/2 that. Milk cows are rather hard to find here just anywhere, even holsteins. AND, people dont let them get real old either,
