I must be the only person on here that doesn't have one of these. And I have a chamber vac sealer, a centrifugal separator and milk with a machine--so you'd think I'd have this gadget, right? Anyway, if you can do mozz in it, that means it should hold temp for hard/pressed cheeses too. Which would be nice for smaller batches where maintaining temp is harder. So do report how it works--and what the temp is holding at for coagulating the curds.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.

mamacherri10: good afternoon! I have not been on the website in a long time. Have a new jersey milk cow and am looking to see how long she needs to be dried up prior to calving? She is due the third week of May.
