Cows are creatures of habit. They don't like change, so they sometimes will resist a new person milking them. So I have to go sit in a drafty cold barn and milk that cow! This is one of the drawbacks of animals. No matter how you feel you still have to take care of them. You should certainly take this into account before you get milk animals because so much depends on their milking schedule. You cant delay by hours if you have been sick all night. Oh well, at least we are getting milk we can use now. And really she's a great cow. She holds still and lets me milk her and my hands didn't hurt at all today. But then again that might be the codeine cough syrup the doctor prescribed me helping ;) I'll try to post some more but I've been so sick I can barely read.
This mornings milk. About 1 1/2 gallon
Here are some of our eggs from the chickens. They are laying about 6-8 per day now.
