LOL a cow is a cow except for when you want milk or meat
a heifer is a bovine that has not had a calf. it takes having a calf
to make a cow.
then you take 1/2 the total milk produced.
you have to make sure the cow doesn't end up with mastitis and such
you need to milk morning and evening. Jerseys give nice rich milk
and would not give to much milk a day maybe a couple of gal. where as
a holstein (from experience) would give 6 gal. a day. You will get
alot of hand cramps till you get used to squeezing and pulling tits that
long every day. And if you have good aim, the cats will love you.
you could buy a bull calf and have him cut, (then he is a steer) and
have it butchered for meat each fall. And don't try milking a bull or
unless you like jokes.
