Shoutbox

fairfarmhand: I love this place. No one else, even my husband understands why I'd do all the work, spend all the money, just to milk a cow. Feb 19, 2014 14:29:45 GMT -5
frauline214: oI am new to forum. I have a jersey/beef cow cross who is due to calve shortly. I plan on adding other calves to her after she calves. This is a first time freshener and she has been raised to let me milk her. Any suggestions how many calves I can add? Mar 2, 2014 19:10:43 GMT -5
squarant: have only highlands. sorry Mar 12, 2014 23:03:51 GMT -5

Soma Gosala: Does someone know where I can buy A2 Jersey semen ? Mar 15, 2014 17:26:33 GMT -5
birdsongmilkmaid: Most AI companies test their bulls for beta casein type. Semex lists the type right on their website. If the company you are purchasing your semen from doesn't, send them an email and ask for a list of the beta casein type of the bulls that they offer. Mar 17, 2014 2:42:11 GMT -5
