What's Been Going On Around Here!

Besides a rather major home renovation project, and the normal garden chores, we've also been preparing for something very special.

The arrival of our milk cow!

She came with a two week old bull calf, we call Bubba.

We're all pretty excited, as y'all can probably imagine.

Congrats to the Boyd Clan!

Jersey's are my favorite (we just bought another Jersey bull ourselves), the high butter fat content of their milk opens up alot of possibilities to further dairy products.

Just wondering, what are y'all planning to do with Bubba?
We still have'nt decided what's going to become of our new calf.

Thanks for the comment, Mike.

Yes, that was one of the main reasons we chose a Jersey. We plan on making alot of butter.

Well, it all depends on how aggressive he is. We're tentatively going to use him for breeding purposes, since at least two of our neighbors have Jersey's...but no bull.

Glad to see y'all were able to find a milk cow. We are getting us one as soon as we can get our fences in good repair. I've fixed or put in miles of fence in the past couple months, but none for us LOL! Y'all have any other cattle?

Thanks, RG.

Fences are fun to put up...for a little while! Especially if you have a post driver for the T posts instead of a hammer.

Nope, these are our first cows.

Is this one of those radical survivalist moves? I certainly hope it is.

We have goats on our mini-stead.

Us? Be involved in something like that? No way! *winks*

Ahha! So you too own those escape artists otherwise known as goats. We don't have any but we have neighbors who do.
