An about a month and a half, it will be time to wean the calf off my Jersey, Dawn. It occurred to me that I'll have to start milking Dawn twice a day when Libby Belle is no longer around. But I am lazy ... :haha: It occurred to me that maybe I could get a sale barn steer (or one from the farmer I work for) and slap it on Dawn after her calf gets too big. How hard is it to get a cow to accept a strange calf? Dawn is on her 4th lactation (although this is the first time she's been allowed to raise her calf ... she was owned by a commercial dairy before). She is a very good mother, and generally has a laid-back disposition. Any pointers for getting this to work?!
