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.
