Anyone know anything about bovines?

2017-09-21 18:21:44 UTC  

Anyone have any experience with family milk cows, on the topic of self-sufficiency?

2017-09-21 21:14:37 UTC  

Not much, I knew some folks that had a milk cow. They also had a couple goats and said that the goats ended up producing more milk for their size than the cow.

2017-09-21 21:22:16 UTC  

It depends on the cow, cow's age and feed. Personaly I perfer more animals because it minimizes the chance of catastophry. http://www.backwoodshome.com/bovine-basics-for-beginners/
P.S. did you know that there are dairy sheep breeds.
