Hey just wanted to see what you all thought. There is a guy I know that raises Jersey cattle. He had a herd a few years ago and his barn burnt and instead of rebuilding he sent his cows to another dairy and in turn they keep the milk and care for the cows and he gets the calves. In 2 years the man who took the cows has given him 5 calves out of 18 cows. Sound fair? Anyway he told me he had 4 cows to calve this fall so I called to see what he planned on doing with the cows. He said he wasn't going to milk them. So I asked if he would mind if I took one of the cows and milked it and kept it here and he get the calf like he does with the other guy. He said sure. He'd bring her over a couple months before she calved to get her settled and then I'd get to keep her as my own and do what I want with the milk. I think this is gonna be great. . .. . . .nice Jersey cow, don't have to pay for it, do what I want to with the milk, and he does vet work so would help with anything I needed. And if I wanted the calf I could buy it off him. What do you all think?? Thanks a lot!
