Suzie is 4 years old and calved on December 13th,2012
She milks on all 4 quarters and can be hand milked or machine milked.
I think she would make an WONDERFUL nurse cow!
She is halterbroke and leads real nice.. you can walk up to her in the pasture and put the halter on and lead her up to the milk house.
I hand milk her 1 time a day and she gives around 2.5 gallons/day.
You can milk her from the left,right or back- she doesn't care.
If you switched her to twice a day milking, she gives around 4 gallons/day.
I am new to milking cows and have only had her for around 2 months and she has been a very good milk cow until the past week... she has started to try and kick me during milking... Because I sometimes have kids help me milk, I just can't have this... I'm sure with a EXPERIENCED milker, you could get it out of her in no time.
I hate to sell her but I just don't have what it takes to put her into her place... you could prob. Even shackle her until she gets the message.
*** I do have videos I could send of her***
