As living on a dairy all of my life I have always been asked many “Cow” questions. Here are a few of the frequent “Cow” questions I have been asked over the years.
Also I have put some pictures of the main “milking” breeds.
We have always had black and white Holstein. My grandfather, father, and husband. I didn’t even know there were other “milking” cows. My husband has gotten out of the “box” a bit. Last year he called me over to show me some “Red” Holstein bulls he bought…for me! He said that we didn’t have enough “redheads” around the place (meaning I was the only one) LOL! So slowly we are getting some more “REDS” I don’t know if it’s just me but they are kinda sassy….you know redheads!
Labeling for Cows got a bit messed up..sorry…they are Ayshire/Brown Swiss/Guernsey/Jersey/Holstein/Milking Shorthorn!
