Goats are small, easily handled (for the most part), and not intimidating. True, they don't give as much milk as a cow, but I've always thought the good outweighed the bad when it came to goats. Now we have a milk cow and I don't know where to start. She hasn't calved yet, but will inside a month. I've been trying to find out the best way to train her to milk and reading up. Still....
I found one site-How to train and milk a cow once a day. It's 8 pages long, but when I got to page 5, it wouldn't display anymore. Despite this, it's a very informative read. So what do all of you verteran cow milkers think? Advice wanted and needed.
And on a different note...Yes we did have chocolate cake for breakfast., healthy eating nut that I am. Today our son turns 13. He gets out of chores, gets a birthday dinner of his choice, in this case tuna casserole ;P, and for his birthday activity, will go to an auction on Wednseday with a friend.
So long for now, enjoy this day, it is a gift.
