    I took this today. She is so sweet. We can't wait to breed her and get that wonderful fresh milk, along with a cute little one around the farm.

    I love all cows and Jersey's are especially pretty. I wish I could have some for pets.

    I quit eating meat b/c of them.

    Quote:That's not fair to say of all Jerseys. Poorly-bred examples can be found in any breed or species, but are not representative.

    my grandpa had a cow herd. He bred them his entire life, and one super important characteristic was niceness.

    He had horrid fences, so he needed nice cows so that he never had to worry about fixing the fence. [​IMG] (well, if the fence fell over all the way, we would go out and prop it back up)
