I’m going to call this a success. Eda needs a head gate to be a good milker, but we managed okay with just 2 t-posts, a bucket and a tie.shes a sweet girl. She moves around a lot but never kicked me away. I think a week from now we will settle in to a routine. Check out our story for more details about what we use.
Eda has a very hairy udder! And I feel bad pulling those little hairs. So I may shave her bag•
And I’m glad to have also slipped a lead on the calf. Now I can start working with him and make him approachable. I really like to be able to handle all my animals, especially the larger ones. So even though the calf will someday be processed I’ll take the time to make him friendly. It makes everyone’s life less stressful.• #fayettevillewv #gorgegrown #realfood #familycow #keepingafamilycow #dexterjerseycross #dextercow #jerseycow
