New member here I've been reading here for a while and thought I'd finally join! Hubby and I just finally bought our "dream farm", a full quarter section with a nice barn and heated shop. Right now we have 2 horses, a small flock of chickens and a rooster, and a dog. We both grow up on smaller hobby farms so we are excited to expand to a bigger property and get some beef cattle and a milk cow for me (and more chickens of course ;)). We're moving in March and can start cow shopping then! Right now I just want to get set up with everything I'll need for milking and home dairy. I already make butter and yogurt at home, but I'd like to get into cheese as well once we have our own cow.
This book is intended as an inspirational manual for keeping a family milk cow. A lifetime of practical experience has been bound into one volume. Practical advice for the everyday and procedures for cow emergencies. Plus, answers to FAQ's like, 'Should you get a cow?' and 'How Much Space do I need?'
