Please excuse the mud, ‘tis the season. Primrose is our little family milk cow in training. She is 3/4 Dexter and 1/4 Jersey. She is such a sweetheart, very friendly and she loves the kids. Right now we are putting her in the stanchion for some extra treats and pampering, so that when she’s older/of milking age it will feel natural to her. She watched her momma be milked, so she knows the routine ☺️ #futuremilkcow #housecow #dexterjerseycross #homesteadcow #farmchores #familyfarm #farmohio

Welded some chains and mounting brackets on these old head stalls...ready for milking! #familymilkcow #dexterjerseycross

I built Eda a box to eat from and we are both happier! It crossed my mind it should drain water when it rains, so I left a small gap between the two boards that make up the floor of the box. Some grain escapes but not if I put a bed of hay down first. She stands PERFECTLY for me 💛 Thank you Eda for your gift of milk☀️ The pastures will be green soon and we won’t have to feed hay, they can get the good stuff! •

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

Midway between solstice and equinox, we are feeling much gratitude for more light. ✨🌎☀️ #dextercows #organic #grassfedcows #moresunmoregrass #dexterjerseycross #heifercalf #rawmilk
